California: Hearing on Pro-Gun Bill on Monday, May 11

Please contact members of the Senate Committee on Appropriations urging them to SUPPORT SB 566!

NRA-supported Senate Bill 566 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee of Appropriations on Monday, May 11, at 10 a.m. at the State Capitol room 4203.  SB 566 would reduce the fee for a firearm safety certificate to $15 for an honorably discharged member of the United States Armed Forces, the National Guard, the Air National Guard, or the active reserve components of the United States, $10 of which is to be paid to the Department of Justice to cover costs.  Please call AND email the members of the Senate Committee on Appropriations urging them to SUPPORT SB 566.  Contact information can be found here.

Earlier this week, NRA-supported Assembly Bill 499 passed the state Assembly by a unanimous vote and will now move to the Senate.  AB 499 would authorize a person with a valid license to carry a firearm capable of being concealed on the person, consistent with the terms of that license, while engaged in the taking of deer with bow and arrow.  AB 499 has not been assigned its next hearing date at this time.

Also earlier this week, anti-gun Senate Bill 347 was sent to the Senate Committee on Appropriations suspense file due to its fiscal impact.  This bill could come up for a vote in the Senate Committee on Appropriations as early as May 27.  SB 347 would add to the list of misdemeanor convictions that would result in a 10-year prohibition on the possession of firearms.
