California: Time to Put Pressure on the Legislature Again

Friday, June 6, 2014

Friday, May 30 was the last day for bills to pass their legislative chamber of origin.  Accordingly, it’s time to contact your state legislators urging them to OPPOSE all anti-gun legislation.

 

Anti-gun legislators still haven’t figured out that stripping law-abiding citizens of their rights does nothing to stop criminal activity.

 

The anti-gun bills below are scheduled to be heard this Tuesday, June 10.  Please call members of the respective committees TODAY!  Contact information for committee members is listed with each bill.

 

Senate Bill 53 would require the purchasers of ammunition to register with the state Department of Justice (DOJ) prior to purchasing any ammunition.  This registration would require the submission of fingerprints, a background check and fees to the DOJ.  SB 53 is expected to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 10.  Contact information for the committee can be found here.

 

Assembly Bill 1964 would remove existing exemptions for all single-shot pistols, other than those with a break top or bolt action, from California’s roster of “not safe” handguns.  AB 1964 is expected to be heard in the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 10.  Contact information for the committee can be found here.

 

 

The anti-gun bills below have passed in the state Senate.  Please call AND e-mail your Assemblyman TODAY urging him or her to OPPOSE these anti-gun bills:

 

Senate Bill 199 would ban the sale/transfer of used and antique BB devices and imitation firearms that are not colored, as specified.  Congress preempted state law and stated that federal statute would supersede any state or local laws requiring “markings or identification inconsistent with provisions” of the federal statute. 15 U.S.C. §5001(g). In addition, federal statute specifically prohibits a state from banning the sale of traditional air guns.  SB 199 is expected to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 24.  Contact information for the committee can be found here.

 

Senate Bill 808 would impose heavy restrictions and costly fees on the ability to make, or even assemble a personal firearm.  SB 808 is expected to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 24.  Contact information for the committee can be found here.

 

 

The anti-gun bills below have passed in the Assembly.  Please call AND e-mail your state Senator TODAY urging him or her to OPPOSE these anti-gun bills:

 

Assembly Bill 1014 would allow any person to seek a “gun violence restraining order” against another person.  A court would be permitted to issue the order based only on a person’s affidavit that “the named person poses a significant risk of personal injury to himself or herself or others by possessing firearms.”  If the court is satisfied that the affidavit is correct, then the court can issue an order prohibiting the named person from possessing firearms.  This extremely dangerous bill would essentially allow any person to create a firearms prohibition on any other person.  A committee hearing date has not been scheduled at this time.

 

Assembly Bill 1609 would impose unnecessary limitations on the transfer of firearms by law-abiding citizens, requiring that all transfers be completed through a California gun dealer, regardless of the circumstances.  A committee hearing date has not been scheduled at this time.

 

Assembly Bill 2310 would reenact provisions authorizing a city prosecutor or city attorney in specified counties to file an action for unlawful detainer to abate a nuisance caused by any illegal conduct involving firearms or ammunition.   A committee hearing date has not been scheduled at this time.
