Members of the state Assembly Public Safety Committee MUST hear your OPPOSITION
Your immediate attention is needed on two anti-gun bills scheduled to be heard on Tuesday, June 25, in the state Assembly Public Safety Committee. Members of the state Assembly Public Safety Committee MUST hear your opposition to these unnecessary and misguided bills TODAY. These anti-gun bills will do nothing to reduce California’s crime rate and will one affect law-abiding citizens, because law-abiding citizens are the only ones that respect the law. Contact information for the members of the committee can be found below.
Senate Bill 299 (DeSaulnier) requires law-abiding gun owners who are victims of gun theft to report that loss within 48 hours of when the owner knew or “should have known” it was lost or stolen. To view a copy of the NRA’s letter of opposition to SB 299, please click here.
Senate Bill 475 (Leno) requires the prior approval of the board of supervisors of both the County of San Mateo and the City and County of San Francisco to allow a gun show at the Cow Palace. To view a copy of the NRA’s letter of opposition of SB 475, please click here.

The NRA recognizes that California is one of the most active Second Amendment "battleground states," so for decades NRA has devoted substantial resources to fighting for the right to keep and bear arms for Californians. The NRA has full-time legislative advocates in its Sacramento office fighting ill-conceived gun ban proposals. NRA coordinates a statewide campaign to fight ill-conceived local gun bans and regulations. And NRA has been litigating cases in California courts to promote the right to self-defense and the Second Amendment for many years. NRA’s California legal team continues to work pro-actively to strike down ill-conceived gun control laws and ordinances, and to protect the Second Amendment rights of California firearms owners. For information about NRA’s litigation efforts, see www.nraila.org/legal/litigation.aspx
