California Legislative Update!

Thursday, April 12, 2007

Two bills aimed at dissolving the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Californians are headed to the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 17.

Assembly Bill 1471, sponsored by Assembly Member Mike Feuer (D-42), would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing.  Per AB1471, handguns that did not include their identifying information would be defined as “unsafe,” and their manufacture, sale, and transfer would be a crime.

Also, Assembly Bill 362, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin de Leon (D-45), would require identification be presented for all mail order and face-to-face ammunition sales.  Sellers of ammunition would be forced to keep detailed and accurate sales records. 
No retail seller of ammunition would be able to sell, offer for sale, or display for sale, any ammunition in a manner that allows that ammunition to be accessible to a purchaser without the assistance of the retailer or authorized employee.

However, not all is bad in the Golden State.  Two NRA-supported measures, Assembly Bill 1645 and Assembly Bill 1105 will also be heard on Tuesday, April 17, in the Assembly Public Safety Committee.

 

AB1645, sponsored by Assembly Member Doug La Malfa (R-2), will protect the Second Amendment rights of Californians to keep and bear arms from executive authority during a state of emergency in California. Existing law authorizes the Governor to invoke various powers in the event of an emergency.

 

Also, AB1105, sponsored by Assembly Member Martin Garrick (R-74), would require the Department of Justice to complete a study identifying what actions would be required to reduce the waiting period for firearms transfers in California.

 

Please contact the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee at (916) 319-3744 and respectfully urge them to oppose AB1471 and AB362, and to support AB1645 and AB1145.
