California: Anti-Gun/Hunting Bills are both Signed into Law and Vetoed by Governor Brown Today

Friday, October 11, 2013

The wait is over for California’s law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters.  Governor Brown has signed some anti-gun bills and one anti-hunting bill into law.  However, he also vetoed several anti-gun bills.

Below is a list of the bills signed into law and vetoed as well as a link to the respective descriptions given by Governor Brown.

The NRA will be looking over all the recently signed laws and our legal options for law-abiding Californians.

Thanks to NRA members, gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters who tirelessly called and e-mailed their state legislators and the Governor urging them to oppose all the anti-gun/hunting legislation. Without your help, the veto actions on some of the deeply flawed anti-gun bills may not have occurred.

 

Bills Enacted into law:

 

Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) makes California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.  To view Governor Brown’s signing message, click here.
