Assembly Bill 2358 is currently on Third Reading in the Senate. Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin de Leon (D-45), AB2358 is anti-gun legislation meant to “clean-up” and address problems encountered with the passage of AB962 in 2009. Make no mistake about it; this bill does nothing to improve AB962 for
AB2358 would force licensed state handgun ammunition retailers to obtain a special local license to operate in municipalities. These retailers would also be required to notify local law enforcement before conducting business within their jurisdiction.
Moreover, this bill mandates that handgun ammunition retailers submit sales records to local law enforcement agencies and allows them to maintain those records indefinitely. It does not require the same privacy and destruction requirements mandated for state ammunition vendors.
Simply put, passage of AB2358 would make it difficult for ammunition retailers to sell ammunition at sporting events and gun shows. It would also leave law abiding Californian gun owners vulnerable to identity theft and political persecution by local, anti-gun politicians.
Please contact your State Senator IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB2358. Contact information for your State Senator can be found by clicking here.
