California: Anti-Gun Bills to be Heard in Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday

Thursday, April 25, 2013

On Monday, April 29, the state Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to hear several anti-gun bills.  Please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Appropriations Committee urging them to OPPOSE these anti-gun bills that will have no effect on reducing crime.  Contact information for members of this committee is provided below.

Anti-gun bills to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, April 29:

Senate Bill 108 (Yee) requires mandatory locked storage of firearms within a locked house regardless of whether anyone is present. 

Senate Bill 293 (DeSaulnier) BANS the sale of conventional handguns, if the state Department of Justice approves the sale of “Owner Authorized – Smart” handgun technology. 

Senate Bill 299 (DeSaulnier) turns victims of firearm theft into criminals for failing to report the loss of their firearm within 48 hours. 

Senate Bill 475 (Leno) requires the prior approval of the board of supervisors of both the County of San Mateo and the City and County of San Francisco to allow a gun show at the Cow Palace. 

Don't forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners throughout California and urge them to do the same.  We need all of California gun owners and Second Amendment supporters to continually call AND e-mail state legislators opposing all anti-gun legislation. The California Legislature needs to know that these egregious attacks against law-abiding citizens must stop.

The NRA recognizes that California is one of the most active Second Amendment "battleground states," so for decades NRA has devoted substantial resources to fighting for the right to keep and bear arms for Californians. The NRA has full-time legislative advocates in its Sacramento office fighting ill-conceived gun ban proposals. NRA coordinates a statewide campaign to fight ill-conceived local gun bans and regulations. And NRA has been litigating cases in California courts to promote the right to self-defense and the Second Amendment for many years. NRA’s California legal team continues to work pro-actively to strike down ill-conceived gun control laws and ordinances, and to protect the Second Amendment rights of California firearms owners.
