California: Two Anti-Gun Bills Awaiting Action in Sacramento

Friday, April 16, 2010

Please Stand Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Two very serious threats to the rights of California’s law-abiding gun owners are currently pending consideration.  They must be stopped at all costs.

The Assembly Public Safety Committee will consider Assembly Bill 1934, a blatant attack on the self-defense rights of law-abiding Californians, on Tuesday, April 20.  Simply put, this legislation would outlaw the open carrying of a handgun for self-defense. 

Please contact the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB1934.  Contact information can be found below. 

Also, earlier this week, the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed
Assembly Bill 1810, legislation that
would establish a registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns.  AB1810 will now head to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.  No hearing date has been scheduled.  

Under AB1810, the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser would be recorded and kept on file by the California Attorney General’s office. 

If AB1810 were enacted, violent criminals would continue doing what they do now – obtain firearms through illegal means.  This bill would not decrease crime but will rather have disastrous effects on the already financially unstable Golden State.  AB1810 would impose additional burdens on California’s taxpayers to maintain the registration system as well as on the state’s licensed firearms dealers, small businesses who already deal with extensive business requirements. 

One simply needs to look at Canada, a nation with draconian firearms registration, to see the results – billions in cumulative administrative costs, annual cost overruns, no clear substantiation of public safety benefits, unjust prosecution, and a bureaucratic complexity that daunts those willing to comply.  Ironically, California is considering a new registration scheme as Canada is considering doing away with its system.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee and strongly voice your opposition to AB1810.  Contact information can be found below.
