California Call to Action:  Time to Increase the Pressure to STOP AB 96, AB 1134, SB 347, and SB 707 TODAY

The war over anti-gun legislation is heating up in Sacramento with the 2015 legislative session ending in less than two weeks.  Anti-gun advocates are working hard and we must work even harder to stop these misguided anti-gun bills from getting to the Governor’s desk.

All gun owners and sportsmen MUST CALL AND EMAIL their state Senator IMMEDIATELY.   To ensure this message gets out to as many Second Amendment supporters in the Golden State, please forward this alert to all your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen, so they can also express their OPPOSITION to AB 96, AB 1134, SB 347, and SB 707.  

 

Assembly Bill 96 and Assembly Bill 1134 are waiting for a floor vote in the Senate, which can happen at any time this week.  It is CRITICAL that you contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE AB 96, AB 1134, and SB 707.

Assembly Bill 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.  Lawfully obtained ivory components are commonly found on many antique firearms.

Assembly Bill 1134 would allow sheriffs to make agreements with and delegate the processing of all carry license (“CCW”) applications to a police chief of a city within the county.  If enacted into law, AB 1134 would only increase the red tape and costs associated with CCW issuance and not allow Californians in their jurisdictions the ability to apply for CCW permits to every agency they can legally apply to. 

Senate Bill 707 would prohibit CCW holders and retired law enforcement officers from possessing firearms on any properties that make up the grounds of a K-12 school or university, including many parking lots, common areas that may not be readily identifiable as school grounds, and student apartment buildings.  

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

Senate Bill 347 has already passed the Senate, but was amended by the Assembly and will be returning for a concurrence vote by the Senate.  That is why it is imperative for you to let your state Senator know he or she must OPPOSE SB 347 when this bill returns for its concurrence vote.

Senate Bill 347 would add to the list of misdemeanors convictions that would result in a 10-year prohibition on the possession of firearms.  The addition of these misdemeanor offenses to the prohibited category list that include the “transfer” of firearms or ammunition could entrap family members who are giving firearms to relatives and are unaware of the requirements for firearm transfers through licensed dealers.

Don’t forget to check out our California update webpage here and feel free to pass it along to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen.
