Wednesday, September 3, 2014

The 2014 session of the California Legislature has finally adjourned for this year.

Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen in California urging them to call, fax AND e-mail Governor Brown and urge him to VETO SB 199, SB 808, AB 1014, AB 1609 and AB 2310.

 

The following anti-gun bill has already been signed into law:  Assembly Bill 1964 unnecessarily removes existing exemptions for all single-shot pistols, other than those with a break top or bolt-action, from California’s roster of “not unsafe” handguns.  Click here for the Assembly roll call vote.  Click here for the Senate roll call vote.

 

******************************

 

Because of your efforts in the waning hours of this legislative session, Senate Bill 53 was defeated.  SB 53 would have required registration and collection/reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout California.  It also would have banned online and mail-order sales of ALL ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition.  Click here for the Assembly roll call vote.  Click here for the Senate roll call vote.

 

Some other good news for gun owners in California, anti-gun bill Senate Bill 580 failed to meet its fiscal deadline in committee resulting in its defeat for this year.

 

Senate Bill 580 would have diverted millions of dollars from the “Firearms Safety and Enforcement Fee” (FSE Fee) to fund general law enforcement activities (such as performing law enforcement “contacts” based on the Armed Prohibited Persons System).

 

Some good news for California sportsmen, the following two pro-hunting bills are pending Governor Brown’s consideration.  Please call, fax and e-mail Governor Brown urging him to sign into law the two pro-hunting bills below:

 

Assembly Bill 1709 expands junior hunting licenses to 16 and 17 year olds. Click here for the Assembly roll call vote.  Click here for the Senate roll call vote.

 

Assembly Bill 2105 requires the state Department of Fish and Game to authorize a non-profit organization designated by the department to assist in the sale of Nelson bighorn ram tags and to retain five percent of the amount of the sale price of the tag, plus any applicable credit card fees, as a reasonable vendor fee.  Click here for the Assembly roll call vote.  Click here for the Senate roll call vote.
