APPEARS IN Hunting

California Members--Update on AB 352, SB 357 and AB 1002

Monday, May 2, 2005

SB 357 would establish a program requiring serialization of handgun ammunition to be enforced by the Department of Justice. The manufacture, transfer, and possession, of non-serialized handgun ammunition after July 1, 2007 would be considered a crime. SB 357 would also require ammunition vendors and manufacturers to register with the Department of Justice. SB 357 passed out of the Senate Public Safety Committee and is on its way to the Senate Appropriations Committee. Please contact members of the committee at (916)651-4101 and urge them to oppose SB 357.

AB 352 is on the Assembly floor and could be heard at any time. AB 352 expands the definition of "unsafe handguns" to include semiautomatic pistols that are not designed and equipped with a microscopic array of characters which identify the make, model, and serial number of the pistol, etched into the interior surface or internal working parts, and which are then transferred by imprinting on each cartridge case when the firearm is fired. Please contact members of the Assembly at (916) 319-2800 and ask them to oppose AB 352.

AB 1002 prohibits the possession of any ammunition, including bullets and shot, other than non-lead ammunition when hunting within the known or likely range of the California condor. A commission would be established to determine all hunting areas within the state and to certify what qualifies as non-lead ammunition. Thanks to your calls, AB 1002 was pulled from the committee and is temporarily stalled in the Assembly Water, Parks & Wildlife Water Committee. Please continue to contact members of the committee at (916) 319-2096 and urge them to oppose AB 1002.
