expansion of the law. >> i really wanted to have situation where teachers, employers and workers can really do something to defend themselves. >> reporter: now they can file a gvr row directly in civil court. but data we obtain from the state attorney general's office shows use of the law varies a lot from county to county. here in the bay area marin county issued the fewest in 2020, only five of them. santa clara issued the most, 123. statewide, san diego had the most by far. 483. jeff brooker leads the city's gun violence response unit. >> we've had a situations where people have been in the planning phases of committing shootings and we were able to

dangerous. >> i think it probably opens the door to some mischief. >> reporter: a constitutional law professor at lincoln universityã >> a fundamental right is suspended for a period of time. there is serious due process problems. >> reporter: you certainly understand some people's concern that they don't want a violent act to have to happen before somebody steps in and can prevent it. how do you answer those folks? the mac that may be above the pay grade of a constitutional law professor. now you are getting into philosophy. how do we predict human behavior? but, if somebody has led a peaceful law-abiding life and they are in their 40s and 50s and have a bad day and say the wrong thing to a coworker, i don't think that is grounds to deprive them of the fundamental rights. >> taking their guns, a
constitutional right, second amendment is a big deal. we'll just say we think we have enough, we investigate these very thoroughly and take them very seriously. at the end of the day it is all about public safety read and that is what this law is for, if you see something, say something. >> reporter: california issued more than 1200 gun violence restraining orders last year heard slightly more than the year before that a considerable jump from the 85 issued in 2016. the first year the law went into effect. as to how effective the law will be, awareness and enforcement will be the key to that. in san francisco, allen martin, kpix 5. >> right now only 16 of the states in washington, d.c. have their own red flag laws. new at 11:00, a bay area dispensary says amazon's support for legal marijuana could be a game changer. the company has announced that

bridge. the tops of the tower are obscured. and if you look at the marine layer now, it sticks around and gets a little more widespread. but it doesn't really cover the entire bay area. that will be important for temperatures. i will come back to that in a second. first let's take a look at where it will get some missed tonight. over in the east bay hills, just a little bit of elevation in those hills and you will likely have a little bit of light rain as well. barely enough to measure. here is how things played out today. this is actually a high- resolution satellite going back to 9:00 this morning. look at how the clouds perfectly follow the contours they are. and by the time we get to 11:00 in the morning, the clouds cleared out. you didn't get out of the 70s all day in santa rosa. that's like 10 degrees below
