Anti-gun Assembly Bill 96 was passed off the Assembly floor by vote of 62 to 14 and will now move to the Senate for consideration.  AB 96 would prohibit a person from purchasing, selling, offering for sale, possessing with intent to sell, or importing with intent to sell ivory or rhinoceros horn, except as specified, and would make this prohibition enforceable by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
