Today, June 1, the state Assembly leadership used a procedural move called “without reference to file” to move four anti-gun bills, AB 1664, AB 1673, AB 1674 and AB 1695 , from the second reading file to the third reading file. This move allowed final Assembly consideration without notice to the public of their eligibility for a vote. The result was the passage of these four bills along with AB 2607, which already appeared on the third reading calendar. So much for allowing citizen participation in the law making process.
These five anti-gun bills will now move to the Senate for further consideration. For further descriptions on these bills, please click here to read our previous alert.
Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who have contacted their Assembly Members and to those state Assembly Members who supported the Second Amendment and voted against AB 1664, AB 1673, AB 1674, AB 1695, and AB 2607.
