SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Just five states have laws that allow relatives or police to seek a judge's order stripping guns from people who are showing violent tendencies or signs of mental distress. There is no such law in Florida, where a young man displayed several warning signs before killing 17 people at his former high school. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that state lawmakers should "absolutely" consider enacting the measure, which more states are considering.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The coldest temperatures of the winter are likely from a low-pressure system predicted to bring snow to California mountains. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory beginning Sunday evening for gusty winds and icy road conditions in mountain areas across the state. Forecasters say snow could fall at elevations as low as 1,500 feet (450 meters) in greater Los Angeles and some areas could see three inches. Some six inches could fall to the north in the Sierra Nevada.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a small plane has landed on the median of a Northern California highway but no injuries have been reported. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot reported engine trouble before bringing the plane down Sunday on a grassy strip dividing State Route 101 in Santa Clara County.

GOLETA, Calif. (AP) - Two female bears badly burned in a Southern California wildfire are settling back into their home in the wild. Los Angeles news station KABC-TV reports that recent photos and GPS tracking data show the bears are moving around and appear to be in good health in Los Padres National Forest. They were released into the forest in January, a month after suffering third-degree burns in the largest wildfire in state history.
