California: Update on Firearm-Related Bills Heard in Senate Committee
Please contact your state Senator TODAY!
On Tuesday, the state Senate Public Safety Committee was expected to vote on two pro-gun bills, SB 313 and SB 404, and one anti-gun resolution, SJR 10. SB 313 failed to be reported by committee by a 2 to 4 vote and SB 404 was withdrawn by the author and was not heard by the committee. The NRA is expecting SB 313 to be reintroduced and SB 404 to be brought up again at a later date. Please continue to check your e-mails for updates on these pro-gun bills.
Unfortunately, SJR 10 did pass in the committee by a 4 to 2 vote and could be heard on the state Senate floor as early as tomorrow.
Please continue to call AND e-mail your state Senator and urge him or her to OPPOSE SJR 10. SJR 10 is nothing but a unsubstantive resolution based upon on the issues surrounding the Obama administration and the “Fast and the Furious” fiasco.

Senate Bill 404 would:
Senate Joint Resolution 10, sponsored by anti-gun extremist Senator DeLeòn, would urge the President and Congress to pursue a comprehensive approach to stem the trafficking of illicit United States firearms into Mexico, that includes, among other things, enhanced collaboration among local, state, and federal agencies, the allocation of a permanent source of federal funding to sustain local and state law enforcement operations to combat firearms trafficking and other border-related crimes, the redirection of federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and United States Customs and Border Protection resources towards this effort, reenactment of a strong federal assault weapons ban, and stronger federal authority to crack down on corrupt gun dealers.
