Hearing for California Right-to-Carry Bill Re-Scheduled

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Assembly Bill 357 was scheduled to be heard by the Assembly Committee on Public Safety on Tuesday, April 14.  It has been re-scheduled and will now be heard on Tuesday, April 21.

AB357, sponsored by Assembly Member Steve Knight (R-36), would create a “shall issue” concealed handgun permit system in California.  Under current law, an applicant must show cause as to why they should be issued a permit to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense.  AB357 would remove that stipulation and require sheriffs to issue the license if all other mandated criteria are satisfied.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Committee on Public Safety TODAY and respectfully urge them to support AB357.
