California: Consideration of Anti-Gun Legislation Scheduled for Tomorrow

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Contact Members of the Senate Appropriations Committee

 

Senate Bill 199 and Senate Bill 808 were scheduled to be heard in the state Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday.

 

SB 199 was sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee’s suspense file.  Bills sent to the suspense file have a fiscal impact and the committee members vote to set aside these bills to be heard at a later date.  SB 199 would ban the sale/transfer of used and antique BB devices and imitation firearms that are not colored, as specified.

 

SB 808 was pulled from Tuesday’s hearing schedule and has been rescheduled to be heard tomorrow, January 23.  SB 808 would impose heavy restrictions and costly fees on the ability to make, or even assemble, a personal firearm.  Please contact the committee members listed below and urge him or her to OPPOSE SB 808.   Let the committee members know that SB 808 is already addressed in federal law, so it is duplicative and unnecessary.  Urge committee members to instead concentrate on meaningful legislation relating to school safety, mental health issues, marketing of violence as entertainment for our children and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.

 

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen in California and urge them to call AND e-mail members of this committee urging them to OPPOSE SB 808.
