On Monday, September 10, AB 1471 was voted off the Assembly floor 43 -29. It now goes to the Governor for his consideration. Please contact Governor Schwarzenneger immediately and respectfully ask him to veto this bill.
AB1471 would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number of the firearm 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. Under AB1471, the manufacture, sale, and transfer of handguns that do not include their identifying information would be a crime.
Please contact Governor Schwarzenegger immediately and respectfully ask that he veto this legislation.
