Investigators say Santino Legan purchased the assault weapon used in the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting Sunday nearly three weeks earlier from a firearms dealer in Fallon, Nevada. 

The owner of Big Mike's Gun and Ammo confirmed in a post on his Facebook page that the Gilroy High graduate purchased the AK-47 style weapon over the internet and came to pick it up at the business about 60 miles east of Reno.


California state lawmaker Phil Ting says he currently has a proposal to expand firearm restraining orders. 

"To expand it to people who are employers as well as people who you go to school with, to expand it from currently just law enforcement and family members," said Ting.
