California: Senate Committee Scheduled to Vote on Legislation to Ban Sale and Transfer of Handguns

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Please contact members of the Senate Public Safety Committee TODAY!

Assembly Bill 169 is scheduled to be heard in the state Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 11.  Assembly Bill 169 (Dickinson) would prohibit the transfer of millions of lawfully owned handguns and jeopardize the continued ownership of constitutionally protected firearms.  Current California law allows handguns that are not on the state Department of Justice (DOJ) approved handgun roster to be sold or transferred to another individual through consignment sale or as a private party transfer, provided that the sale is completed through a licensed firearms retailer.  AB 169 would BAN the sale of ALL handguns (NEW and USED) that are NOT on the DOJ approved roster of "safe" handguns.

There are MILLIONS of handguns that were manufactured and/or purchased prior to the State’s enactment of the DOJ approved handgun roster law.   Most of the handguns lawfully possessed in California today, are not currently on the California Department of Justice (DOJ) approved handgun roster of new handguns that licensed dealers are allowed to sell to the public nor will those handguns ever be allowed to be added to the “approved” roster.  If enacted, AB 169 would leave gun owners who lawfully purchased a handgun with no legal means to sell or transfer their handgun.

Please call, e-mail AND fax members of the state Senate Public Safety Committee and urge them to VOTE NO on AB 169.  Their contact information is provided below.

Please forward this alert to family, friends and sportsmen throughout California because only a united effort will stop this egregious and misguided legislation.
