California: Two Anti-Gun Bills Still on the Governor’s Desk!

Monday, October 5, 2009

Additional Contact Information Listed Below!

As previously reported, the California Assembly passed Assembly Bill 962 by a 44 to 31 vote.  AB962 now joins Senate Bill 585 on the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) where they await his consideration.

AB962 requires individuals purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale, mandates that dealers keep these records and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice.  Ammunition retailers would also have to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.  Finally, mail order ammunition sales are prohibited under AB962.  Over twenty years ago, Congress abolished similar requirements because 
ammunition sales records were found to be useless for solving crimes.  AB962 is a dire threat to our Second Amendment rights in the Golden State.

SB585 would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace in Daly City, just outside of San Francisco.  Simply put, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California. 

Please contact Governor Schwarzenegger TODAY and respectfully urge him to veto AB962 and SB585.  The Governor can be reached by phone at 916-445-2841 or via fax at 916-558-3160.  To email Governor Schwarzenegger, please visit http://gov.ca.gov/interact.
