California: Assembly to Vote on Anti-Gun Bill Any Day

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Contact your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY

 

Yesterday, anti-gun Senate Bill 53 passed in the Assembly Public Safety Committee by a 5 to 2 vote.  SB 53 will now go to the Assembly floor where it could be considered at anytime.  It is CRITICAL that you contact your state Assemblyman TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE this egregious legislation.  Contact information for your state legislator can be found here.

 

SB 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.  If passed and enacted into law, SB 53 would require the collection and reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout the state.  It would also ban online and mail-order sales of all ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition.  In addition, SB 53 would require anyone wishing to exercise their fundamental right to keep and bear arms to obtain a costly ammunition purchaser permit that must be renewed every two years.

           

In doing so, SB 53 would impose drastic and unjustified restrictions on law-abiding gun owners while doing nothing to reduce violent crime.

Here are some talking points you can use to oppose SB 53 when talking to or e-mailing your state Assemblyman.

 

  • Ammunition registration was repealed by Congress as part of the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986.
  • SB 53 imposes identical restrictions on “handgun” ammunition to those contained in AB962.  Signed into law in 2009, AB 962 has yet to be enforced due to the pending lawsuit Parker v. California in the California Supreme Court.
  • In 2011, Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation sponsored by Senator de Leon.  Governor Brown instructed that another ammunition registration bill should not be considered prior to the resolution of Parker v. California.

Again, it is CRITICAL that you contact your state Assemblyman TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE this egregious legislation.  Contact information for your state legislator can be found here.

Please forward this critical alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners and sportsmen in California urging them to call their state Assemblyman also.  California is going to need everyone to help save its Second Amendment rights.
