Dangerous Gun Ban/Confiscation Bill Died TODAY, but the Anti-Gun Threat is Not Over Yet

Thursday, August 16, 2012


Please continue to contact your state legislators to OPPOSE all anti-gun legislation!


Today, the Assembly Appropriations Committee failed to consider the worst gun ban/confiscation bill in California in twenty years. Thanks to your telephone calls and e-mails this committee decided not to bring SB 249 up for a vote, resulting in this egregious gun ban stalling for this legislative session.

SB 249 would have banned the lawful use and possession of California’s modern sporting rifles and would have also led to the confiscation of these firearms without reimbursement. 

Unfortunately, the threats in Sacramento are still far from over.  On Monday, August 13, anti-gun Senate Bill 1315 passed in the Assembly by a vote of 47 to 28 and will now go to the Governor. Please contact Governor Jerry Brown and urge him to VETO SB 1315. Governor Jerry Brown can be reached at 916-445-2841 and by e-mail here.

Let the Governor know that SB 1315 is just a stepping stone to completely destroying California’s firearms preemption law. Such firearms preemption laws are in place to standardize firearm laws across the state. SB 1315 would authorize Los Angeles County to enact and enforce an ordinance that is stricter than state law regarding the manufacture, sale, possession or use of any BB device, toy gun, replica of a firearm or other device that is so substantially similar in coloration and overall appearance to an existing firearm as to lead a reasonable person to perceive that the device is a firearm and that expels a projectile that is no more than 16 millimeters in diameter.

Senate Bill 1315 – Local Regulation of Firearms

There are still several anti-gun bills in the state Assembly and Senate that could be brought up for final consideration and passage as early as next Monday, August 20. 

On the Senate floor for final consideration: Please contact your state Senator IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge him or her to OPPOSE AB 1527, AB 2333, AB 2460 and AJR 45. Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.

Assembly Bill 2333 – Liability for negligent storage of BB, airsoft and other toy guns

Assembly Bill 2460 – Ban of Law Enforcement Transfer of Firearms

Assembly Joint Resolution 45 – Reinstatement of Federal Assault Weapons Ban
