California: Firearm-Related Bills scheduled to be heard Tuesday, April 12

 

On Tuesday, April 12, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety has scheduled a hearing at 9:00 AM at the State Capitol in Room 126.  The following firearm-related bills are expected to be heard.  Please contact the members of the Committee and urge them to OPPOSE Assembly Bill 2459 and SUPPORT Assembly Bill 2508 and Assembly Bill 2340.  Committee contact information can be found here or through the call to action button below.

OPPOSE - AB 2459 was originally scheduled to be heard on April 5th, but has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 12.   As previously reported, this bill would be devastating to California’s gun owners.  AB 2549 is detrimental legislation that would lead to the close of all the gun shops in the state of California, leaving Californian’s unable to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

SUPPORT - 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. 

SUPPORT - 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.

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

Update on April 5, Committee hearings.

SB 894 was rescheduled to be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 19.  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 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee by a party-line vote of 5 to 2.  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.
