Yesterday, Tuesday, April 8, the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed Assembly Bill 2948, sponsored 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.
While AB2948 passed the Public Safety Committee, another anti-gun bill, Assembly Bill 2566, introduced by State Assembly Member Loni Hancock (D-14), failed to pass after several votes. AB2566 would have repealed statewide preemption statutes and allowed cities, counties, and other such localities to enact their own forms of restrictive regulation on handguns.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 continue contacting your State Assembly Member and respectfully urge him or her to oppose AB2948 and AB2566. Contact information for your State Assembly Member can be found by clicking here.
