Assembly Bill 352 was not heard today. Instead, AB 352 is now expected to be heard on the Assembly floor this Thursday, May 12. AB 352 expands the definition of "unsafe handguns" to include semi-automatic pistols that are not designed and equipped with an array of microscopic characters, which identify the make, model, and serial number of the pistol, etched into the interior surface or internal working parts, which are then transferred by imprinting on each cartridge case when the firearm is fired.
Please continue to contact members of the Assembly before Thursday, May 12, asking them to oppose AB 352. Assembly Members can be reached at (916) 319-20 then your district number. You can find further contact information on your elected officials by using NRA-ILA`s "Write Your Representatives" feature.
Senate Bill 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. This anti-gun legislation is waiting to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Please continue to contact members of the committee at (916) 651-4101 and urge them to oppose SB 357.
Please encourage your friends, family, and fellow sportsmen to contact their Legislators, as well!
