California: Two Anti-Gun Bills Scheduled for Consideration on Thursday, May 28

Friday, May 22, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Assembly Bill 962 and Senate Bill 585 are scheduled to be considered on Thursday, May 28.

AB962,
sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), is in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.  AB962 would make it a crime 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 purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice.  Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. 

SB585 is currently in the Senate Appropriations Committee.  Introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), SB585 would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace.  In short, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California


Please contact the members of the Assembly and Senate Appropriations Committees and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962 and SB585.
