California: FFL Ban to be Heard in Committee Tomorrow, April 19

Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 19, the Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection is scheduled to hear Assembly Bill 2459.  This detrimental bill, authored by NRA-PVF “F” rated Assembly Member Kevin McCarty, would close practically every gun store in the Golden State if enacted into law. Gun control advocates have made their agenda very clear – removal of firearm availability piece by piece, until it is completely gone in California.  Committee contact information can be found here or through the TAKE ACTION button below.   

AB 2459 would make four serious changes to California’s dealer licensing requirements.  

  1. ​​​​A prohibition on licensee business premises being on a residential property.
  2. ​A clear statement that localities may impose more restrictive requirements on licensees than those imposed by state law.
  3. ​A requirement that licensees maintain full color video surveillance that is of sufficient quality to provide for facial recognition and records all firearm transactions on the premises, all locations where firearms and ammunition are stored, the immediate exterior of the licensed premises, and all parking facilities owned by the licensee.  The video equipment would be required to run during all business hours and be set to begin recording when motion is detected at all other times.  The licensee would have to certify to having compliant video equipment at least yearly and make any needed repairs to the equipment within 15 days of any damage.  The footage would need to be stored on the premises for at least five years, but that could be extended if the footage may be part of a law enforcement investigation.  Licensees would also be required to post a prominent sign indicating that customers are being recorded.  
  4. ​​All licensees would be required to have a liability policy of a minimum of $1M per incident to cover liability arising from "theft, sale, lease or transfer or offering for sale, lease or transfer of a firearm or ammunition, or any other operations of the business and business premises."

The cost of compiling with these unnecessary and ineffective changes would drive FFL’s out of business.  

Please take a moment to forward this important alert to all your family and friends and ask them to also contact the committee to OPPOSE AB 2459.
