California Anti-Gun Bills to be Considered on Tuesday, April 8!

Thursday, April 3, 2008

Make Your Voice Heard Today!

Three bills threatening our Second Amendment rights in the Golden State are scheduled to be heard by the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 8.

The first,
Assembly Bill 2062, State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition.  Applicants for a “permit-to-purchase” would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit. 

Under AB2062, it would be unlawful to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database.  Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.  The bill would also require vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyer’s name, driver’s license, the quantity, caliber and type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice.  Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database, to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale.  All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax.  Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.  Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

Also up for consideration is
Assembly Bill 2948, introduced by State Assembly Member Mark Leno (D-13).  AB2948 would ban the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace.

Finally,
Assembly Bill 2566, introduced by State Assembly Member Loni Hancock (D-14), would repeal statewide preemption statutes and allow cities, counties, and other such localities to enact their own forms of restrictive regulation on handguns.  Uniform laws regulating firearms and ammunition are necessary to protect the constitutional rights of California’s law-abiding gun owners and to prevent anti-gun municipalities from passing their own laws, which may conflict with state law.  

Please contact the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB2062, AB2948, and AB2566.  Contact information for the committee members can be found below.
