California: Help Stop the Remaining Anti-Gun Legislation

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Governor Brown MUST Hear NOW your OPPOSITION to Anti-Gun/Anti-Hunting Bills Heading to his Desk

 

The 2013 California legislative session adjourned yesterday, with major anti-gun legislation passing through their legislative chambers and now going to Governor Jerry Brown (D) for his consideration.  In the middle of the chaos at the State Capitol, a major semi-automatic ban squeaked out of the state Senate by a ONE vote margin.  Then in the waning hours of the session, the legislature DEFEATED two major anti-gun bills that would have banned the simple possession of magazines and drastically restricted the sale and possession of ammunition.

It is IMPERATIVE that every law-abiding citizen call AND e-mail Governor Brown DAILY respectfully urging him to stand up for law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and the Second Amendment.

Governor Brown needs to know that he has hundreds of thousands of constituents that are law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters.   Reassure Governor Brown that Californians do not support outrageous anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation.  Below is a list of all anti-gun/anti-hunting bills that you need to call AND e-mail to urge Governor Brown to veto.  Governor Brown can be reached at (916) 445-2841 and at http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php.

 

The following anti-gun/anti-hunting bills are going to the Governor for his consideration:

Assembly Bill 48 (Skinner) bans the sale of parts and repair kits capable of creating or converting a magazine to a capacity to hold greater than ten rounds.

Assembly Bill 169 (Dickinson) limits the sale and transfer of all lawfully acquired firearms that were never, or are no longer, on the California roster of approved handguns to two a year and redefines the technical provisions of single short pistols.

Assembly Bill 180 (Bonta) repeals state firearms preemption by allowing the City of Oakland to enact ordinances that are more restrictive than state laws concerning the registration or licensing of firearms.

Assembly Bill 231 (Ting) expands the law relating to the storage of firearms.

Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) makes California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.

Senate Bill 299 (DeSaulnier) makes it a crime if a victim of firearm theft does not report the theft within seven days.

Senate Bill 374 (Steinberg) bans the future sale or transfer of and classify ALL semi-automatic rifles with a detachable magazine or holding more than ten rounds of ammunition as "assault weapons" and the continued legal possession of these newly classified semi-automatics as “assault weapons” would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL of them.

Senate Bill 475 (Leno) effectively bans gun shows at the Cow Palace by requiring approval of the board of supervisors of the Counties of San Mateo and San Francisco prior to any gun shows.

Senate Bill 567 (Jackson) redefines shotguns to include any firearm that may be fired through a rifled bore or a smooth bore, regardless of whether it is designed to be fired from the shoulder. SB 567 also bans the sale of shotguns encompassed by the revised definitions 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 prohibits anyone from purchasing or transferring any firearm without a firearm safety certificate.

Senate Bill 755 (Wolk) expands the list of persons prohibited from owning a firearm, including persons who have operated cars and boats while they are impaired commonly referred to as DUI.

 

The following major anti-gun bills FAILED to pass in the 2013 legislative session:

Senate Bill 53 (De León) bans the online and mail order purchase of all ammunition and requires registration and thumb printing for all ammunition sales.  Further, SB 53 requires that all ammunition purchasers pay a fee (tax) to obtain an annual ammunition purchase permit.

Senate Bill 396 (Hancock) bans the possession of ALL magazines over ten rounds, including the millions of "grandfathered" standard capacity magazines currently legally possessed by Californians.

Assembly Bill 187 (Bonta) imposes an additional ten percent sales tax on ammunition.

Assembly Bill 232 (Ting) provides for an income tax credit for surrendering guns and magazines.

Assembly Bill 760 (Dickinson) imposes a sales tax of .05 cents per ammunition component (complete cartridge, bullet or case).

Senate Bill 47 (Yee) bans the use of a "bullet button" on semi-automatic rifles to comply with current law by classifying firearms with "bullet buttons" as "assault weapons" and banning their future sale or transfer.  Continued legal possession would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL of your semi-autos with “bullet buttons.”

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

Senate Bill 293 (DeSaulnier) prohibits new handguns that are not “smart guns” (aka “owner-authorized handguns”) from being added to CA’s roster of approved handguns once two “smart guns” become available for sale.
