On June 28, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed Assembly Bill 450 on a party line vote. AB 450, sponsored by “F” rated Assembly Member McCarty, is a “gut and amend” that covered a completely different subject matter until last week. Now, AB 450 is aimed at arguably the most law-abiding citizens, CCW permit holders. The bill seeks to increase fees to not only cover issuance but also enforcement. Exactly what “enforcement” is to cover remains unclear, however what was abundantly clear is McCarty’s disdain for concealed carry permit holders and his desire to put a price tag on permits beyond the reach of average citizens.
It is important that you forward this alert to your family, friends, and fellow guns owners and sportsmen and urge them to contact state Senators and Assembly Members.
