California: More Anti-Gun Legislation Scheduled for Hearings in Sacramento

Monday, August 19, 2013

Your Privacy, Freedom and Right to Self-Defense are at Stake

This Wednesday, August 21, the state Assembly Appropriations Committee has four anti-gun bills scheduled to be heard.  It is critical that you call AND e-mail all members of the state Assembly Appropriations Committee urging them to OPPOSE the legislation below.  All of this legislation has already passed in their house of origin, so time is quickly running out to get these onerous and misguided anti-gun bills stopped.  Also, please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow sportsmen, gun owners and Second Amendment supporters, because it will take everyone in California calling AND e-mailing state legislators to stop this egregious attack on law-abiding citizens.  Contact information for this committee is provided below. 

Senate Bill 374 (Steinberg) bans the sale of all semiautomatic, centerfire rifles with a detachable magazine, even with bullet buttons attached and redefines these firearms as “assault weapons.”  This legislation would ban most common hunting rifles and rifles like the AK-47, Marlin Camp Carbines (.45acp and 9mm), Remington M81 “Woodmaster,  Winchester M1905, BAR MK II, BAR Short Trac, just to name a few of the rifles that are affected.  SB 374 would also require registration of currently owned detachable magazine rifles.

Senate Bill 396 (Hancock) bans the possession of all standard capacity magazines over ten rounds and would require confiscation of these magazines that are currently lawfully possessed.

Senate Bill 567 (Jackson) redefines shotguns to include any firearm that may be fired through a rifled bore or smooth bore, regardless of whether it is designed to be fired from the shoulder.  SB 567 also bans the sale of shotguns that have a revolving cylinder and requires registration of these currently owned shotguns.

Senate Bill 683 (Block) expands California’s handgun safety certificate requirement to apply to all firearms, and would prohibit anyone from purchasing or transferring any firearm without a firearm safety certificate.

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. For information about NRA’s litigation efforts, see www.nraila.org/legal/litigation.aspx.
