Anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 357, is still to be considered in the full Senate. This bill 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.
Please contact members of the Senate and ask them to oppose SB 357. Please encourage your friends, family, and fellow sportsmen to contact their State Senators, as well. You can find contact information on your elected officials by using NRA-ILA`s “Write Your Representatives” tool. Make sure your voice is heard on this important issue!
The California Assembly will consider Assembly Bill 352 at any time. 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 by imprinting the characters on each cartridge case when the firearm is discharged. This legislation could essentially ban all semi-automatic pistols commonly used by California gun owners.
Please continue to contact members of the Assembly through Friday, June 3, and ask them to oppose AB 352. Assembly Members can be reached at (916) 319-20 (plus your 2-digit district number for the last two numbers).
The deadline for voting on both AB 352 and SB 357 is Friday, June 3.
