California: Governor Takes Action on Two Anti-Gun Bills in Sacramento

Monday, October 12, 2009

This weekend, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) vetoed Senate Bill 585 but signed Assembly Bill 962 into law.

SB585 would have prohibited 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 was a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California.

Unfortunately, the Governor did sign AB962.  This bill 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.

Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in opposition to SB585.

Please contact Governor Schwarzenegger TODAY and respectfully voice your disapproval with his signing of AB962.  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
