California: Two Anti-Gun Bills with Serious Consequences Scheduled to be Heard on Tuesday

Thursday, June 6, 2013

Please contact your state Senator and Senate Committee Members TODAY

 On Tuesday, June 11, two anti-gun bills are scheduled to be heard in the state Senate Public Safety Committee and the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee.  Both of these bills have already passed in the state Assembly and MUST be stopped in the state Senate.  Please call AND e-mail members of these Senate committees TODAY.  Members of these Senate committees MUST hear that YOU OPPOSE these bills!  Contact information for members of these Senate committees is provided below.

 

In the state Senate Public Safety Committee:

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 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.

 

In the state Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee:

Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) would make California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of lead ammunition for ALL hunting.  Such a ban on traditional ammunition would have devastating effects on hunting and conservation.  You cannot let this happen!  Many hunters would not be able to afford the higher cost of non-traditional ammunition.

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.
