On Wednesday, March 16, the Senate Education Committee passed SB 1006. The bill is set to establish the California Firearm Violence Research Center as part of the University of California (UC) system.
Anti-gun lawmakers are attempting to fund potentially biased research with tax dollars. Research that can later be used as a further assault on our Second Amendment rights. Senator Huff called the bill a "sole source contract" for a constituent in senator Wolk's district. A researcher with a record of biased anti-gun research.
SB 1006 will now be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee. A hearing date has not been set yet.
The following senators DID NOT support the bill: Tony Mendoza (916) 651-4032, Bob Huff (916) 651-4029, and Andy Vidak (916) 651-4014. Please call and thank them for not supporting the bill.
