BB Gun Bill to be Heard in California Assembly Public Safety Committee

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee TODAY to OPPOSE SB 798!

 

On Tuesday, June 14, the state Assembly Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hear legislation that will treat traditional air and BB guns like toys.  If enacted, this bill will actually increase the safety risks associated with traditional air guns for both police officers and the public alike.

 

Senate Bill 798, introduced by anti-gun extremist state Senator Kevin De León, would require the entire exterior surface of  all air and BB guns to be white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright blue, bright pink, or bright purple as the predominate color. 

 

Current federal law already mandates specific marking requirements for imitation/toy firearms, so they are not mistaken for real guns. Traditional air and BB guns are not toys and should not be treated as or manufactured like a toy.

 

SB 798 passed in the state Senate by a 21 to 16 vote on May 9.

 

Please call AND e-mail members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and ask them not to trivialize guns by making toys out them.  Urge committee members to OPPOSE SB 798.  Contact information for the Assembly Public Safety Committee can be found below.

 

Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners asking them to also call members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee to OPPOSE SB 798.
