California: Anti-Gun Bills Now Moving in the Senate

On Tuesday, April 5, the Senate Committee on Public Safety has scheduled a hearing at 9:00 AM at the State Capitol in the John L. Burton Hearing Room (4203).  The below anti-gun bills are expected to be heard.  Please contact the members of the Committee and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 894 and Senate Joint Resolution 20.

SB 894 would require a victim of a crime to report to local Law Enforcement the theft of a firearm within an arbitrary time requirement of five days and the recovery of the firearm within 48 hours.  Governor Brown has twice vetoed similar legislation stating, “I was not convinced that criminalizing the failure to report a lost or stolen firearm would improve identification of gun traffickers or help law enforcement disarm people prohibited from possessing guns. I continue to believe that responsible people report the loss or theft of a firearm and irresponsible people do not.”

SJR 20 would urge the Congress of the United States to lift a prohibition against publicly funded scientific research on the causes of “gun violence”and its effects on public health.  The basic point is that this bill isn't about problem solving through science; it's cloaking a pre-existing anti- gun political agenda in the mantle of science.

Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsman and urge them to take action also.

 

Update on March 29, Committee hearings.

AB 2340 failed to pass the Assembly Public Safety Committee.  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 has been rescheduled to be heard on Tuesday, April 5 by the Assembly Public Safety Committee.  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.  

AB 1776 unanimously passed the Assembly Environmental Safety and Toxic Material Committee.  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.
