California authorities arrested the suspect Tuesday in a shooting that killed seven people in a rural community in northern California.. Just 48 hours earlier, another man had opened fire at a Lunar New Year celebration near Los Angeles, killing 11 people.

The law banning assault rifles expired in 2004 and has not been renewed by Congress for lack of bipartisan agreement, even though the country has suffered repeated mass shootings.

Many Republicans oppose the ban, citing the constitutional right to own guns.
