California: More Gun-Related Bills to be Heard in the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees on April 26

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Please contact members of the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees Today!

 

On Tuesday, the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees are scheduled to hear pro-gun and anti-gun bills that are of vital interest to California gun owners. 

 

Senate Bill 427 would further restrict ammunition sales and Senate Bill 819 would allow the Department of Justice to use background check fees for other uses.  Assembly Bill 613 would remove the language of AB 962 from California law.

 

In the Senate Public Safety Committee:

SB 427, introduced by anti-gun extremist state Senator Kevin De León (D-22), would force licensed state 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. 

 

SB 819, introduced by F-rated state Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would allow Dealer Record of Sales funds (DROS) to go to the Department of Justice to help pay for the enforcement of California firearm possession laws.  The DROS fund monies were originally collected from every firearm purchaser to pay for the administrative process for background checks.  However, these funds have been raided to help the Department of Justice pay their bills.  As a result, the DROS fund will certainly run out of money.  When it does, what will be their answer to this problem – another increase in the fees for background checks.  

 

Please contact members of the Senate Public Safety Committee and urge them to stop penalizing law-abiding gun owners by OPPOSING SB 427 and SB 819.  Contact information for committee members can be found at the bottom of this alert.

 

In the Assembly Public Safety Committee:

AB 613 is a crucial bill that would remove all the anti-gun language from AB 962, which was enacted in 2009, in California’s gun statutes.  Funded by the NRA and the California Rifle and Pistol Association, a lawsuit was filed and the Fresno County Superior Court found AB 962 unconstitutional earlier this year.  The Court then issued a permanent injunction, which prevents the state and its agents from enforcing the provisions of AB 962 (Penal Code sections 12060, 12061, and 12318).  Even though the provisions of AB 962 cannot be enforced, this detrimental language needs to be removed from the books. 

 

Please call and e-mail members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and urge them to support cleaning up California’s gun laws by voting for AB 613. Contact information for the Committee can be found below.
