California: Tie Committee Vote on NRA-Supported Assembly Bill 225

Yesterday, Tuesday, March 17, the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety heard 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 committee vote was deadlocked 3 to 3. 

No Votes: Assembly Members: Bill Quirk, Evan Low, and Miguel Santiago

Yes Votes: Assembly Members: Melissa Melendez, Tom Lackey, and Lorena Gonzalez

Absent: Assembly Member Reggie Jones Sawyer

 

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.
 
AB 225 will be held in committee for the time being.  Please continue to check your email or www.NRAILA.com for future updates on AB 225.
