APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Anti-Gun Measures Continue to be Considered by the California Legislature!

Friday, August 26, 2005

Since reconvening, the California Legislature is still considering several anti-gun measures.  Assembly Bill 352 has been re-referred and is expected to be considered by the Senate Committee on Appropriations.  However, as of yesterday, August 25, AB 352 has been placed on the inactive list. 

 

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.  AB 352 can be removed from the inactive list at any time, please continue to contact members of the Senate and ask them to oppose AB 352. 

 

Assembly Bill 996 has been voted off the Senate Floor, and now heads once more to the Assembly for a final concurrence vote.  AB 996 would require all retailers to display and sell ammunition in a manner that is only accessible by an employee, not the purchaser.  Any violation of this measure would result in a misdemeanor.  Please contact members of the Assembly and ask them to oppose AB 996.  

 

Although news sources have reported anti-gun measure Senate Bill 357 as shelved by Senate sponsor, Joseph Dunn (D-34), similar legislation could still be attached to another bill.  Despite postponement, it is imperative Assembly members continue to be contacted and asked to oppose SB 357 or any amendments with similar language.  Postponement of SB 357 can be canceled at any time and hearings would continue on short notice.

 

For Assembly and Senate members’ contact information,

please visit www.assembly.ca.gov or www.sen.ca.gov

We will continue to keep you posted on any hearings scheduled on these measures!
