California Senate Appropriations Committee to Hear More Anti-Gun Bills this Monday, May 9

Friday, May 6, 2011

Contact Members of the state Senate Appropriations Committee!

 

This Monday, May 9, at 11:00 A.M. in Room 4203, the state Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to hear the following two anti-gun bills: Senate Bill 427, that would further restrict ammunition sales and Senate Bill 819, that would allow the Department of Justice to use background check fees for other uses. 

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 427 already passed in the state Senate Public Safety Committee by a 5 to 2 vote. 

 

SB 819, introduced by F-rated state Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would allow Dealer Record of Sales (DROS) funds 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.  SB 819 already passed in the state Senate Public Safety Committee by a 5 to 2 vote. 

 

Please call and e-mail members of the Senate Appropriations Committee TODAY urging them to OPPOSE SB 427 and SB 819. Contact information for the Senate Appropriations Committee can be found below.

 

These bills will only hurt law-abiding gun owners and do nothing to stop crime.
