California: Contact the State Assembly Committee on Public Safety to Support Assembly Bill 225

On Tuesday, March 17, the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety is scheduled to hear Assembly Bill 225.

AB 225, sponsored by Assembly Member Melissa Melendez (R),would make filing a false Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO) a felony and punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for 2 to 4 years. 

The need for AB 225 came about due to the deeply flawed AB 1014 that was enacted into law last year.  AB 1014 authorizes a law enforcement officer or an immediate family member of a person to seek, and a court to issue, a Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO).  In addition to due process concerns, this could lead to innocent conduct triggering a denial of rights for individuals who pose no danger to society because of a simple misunderstanding between law enforcement and immediate family members.

AB 225 is meaningful legislation that would help deter the filing of false information by law enforcement and immediate family members with the court, for the issuance of a Gun Violence Restraining Order.
 
Please CALL the members of the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety TODAY urging them to SUPPORT AB 225.  Contact phone numbers are listed below and further contact information can be found HERE.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen urging them to also call members of the Committee.
