California: One Anti-Gun Bill Still Pending Governor’s Consideration

One anti-gun bill remains on Governor Brown’s desk awaiting his consideration, Assembly Bill 857. Time is running out for the Governor to take action. Continue to contact Governor Brown and urge his veto of Assembly Bill 857.

Governor Brown can be reached at (916) 445-2841, at https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php or by using our TAKE ACTION button below.

Assembly Bill 857 would require an individual to request a serial number from DOJ for home-built firearms.  Anti-gun advocates are under the impression that criminals who are already ignoring the law will apply for a serial number issued from DOJ prior to use.  This bill would do nothing but entrap law-abiding citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights.  Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2014.
