California: Pro-Gun Bills Expected to be Heard on Tuesday, March 29

Monday, March 28, 2016

On Tuesday, March 29, the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety is scheduled to hear two pro-gun bills, Assembly Bill 2340 and Assembly Bill 2508.   The hearing will be held at the State Capitol in Room 126 at 9:00 am.  Please contact the members of the Committee on Public Safety and urge them to SUPPORT AB 2340 and AB 2508.

 

 

AB 2340 would exempt a person holding a valid license to carry a concealed firearm and who is also protected by a domestic violence protective order, from both the school zone and the university concealed carry prohibitions.

AB 2508 would allow handguns that match the original intent of the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale (the “Roster”) to be reconsidered for the Roster.

Also, on Tuesday, March 29, the state Assembly Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials is scheduled to hear Assembly Bill 1776.  The hearing will be held at the State Capitol in Room 444 at 1:30 pm.  Please contact the member of the Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials and urge them to SUPPORT AB 1776.

 

 AB 1776 would clarify that “disposal” of hazardous waste does not include the onsite movement of soil at an active outdoor shooting range if this movement is done to facilitate the removal and recycling of spent ammunition materials existing on the site as a result of the normal use of the shooting range and the residual soil is replaced within the area from which it was originally removed.  This bill will allow organizations to use federal best practices regarding lead recycling at training facilities without conflicting with state law.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners and sportsmen, so they can also contact the above committees and urge them to SUPPORT AB 2340, AB 2508, and AB 1776.
