California Senate and Assembly Committees to Hear Firearm-Related Bills Tomorrow

Monday, April 9, 2012

 Contact Members of the state Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees TODAY!

Tomorrow, April 10, the state Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees will hear one pro-gun and two anti-gun bills.  These bills are of importance to California gun owners.  Anti-gun Senate Bill 1366 is scheduled to be heard by the state Senate Committee on Public Safety at 9:30 am in room 3191 of the state Capitol, while pro-gun Assembly Bill 2376 and anti-gun Assembly Bill 2333 will be heard in the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety at 9:30 am in room 126 of the state Capitol.

Senate Bill 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost. (OPPOSE)

Assembly Bill 2333, introduced by state Assembly Member Jose Solorio (D-69), would expand the crime of bringing a BB gun onto school grounds, to include non-metallic projectiles, and would impose an unnecessary and potentially severe criminal liability on everyday toys (not just BB guns and pellet guns) with severe penalties. Under this bill, a parent who inadvertently has a toy gun in their car when picking up their child from school can end up facing felony charges and up to a year in jail; the same is true for students who inadvertently have a toy that expels a plastic (or even a foam) projectile in their backpack or car.

AB 2333 would also create a negligent storage law for BB "devices," a person who knows or reasonably should know that a minor is likely to gain access to that BB device without the permission of the minor's parent or legal guardian is subject to Civil Fines starting at $250. (OPPOSE)

Assembly Bill 2376, introduced by state Assembly Member Linda Halderman (R-29), would create "good cause" for the issuance of a CCW permit, if the applicant has a report on file with a law enforcement agency evidencing that he or she is a victim of a hate crime. (SUPPORT)

Please call AND e-mail the respective committee members TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE SB 1366 and AB 2333 and SUPPORT AB 2376.  Contact information for both the state Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees can be found below.  Ask the Senate committee members to OPPOSE SB 1366 and the Assembly committee members to OPPOSE AB 2333 and SUPPORT AB 2376.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across California and urge them to also call and e-mail members of the respective committees to OPPOSE AB 2333 and AB 2376 and SUPPORT SB 2376.
