California: Less Than Two Weeks Left in the 2016 Legislative Session

Please contact your state legislators TODAY!

As the California Legislature enters the last two weeks of the 2016 legislative session, several bills remain in process that need the attention of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters.

SUPPORT - AB 2510 would allow local law enforcement authorities to issue concealed carry weapons (CCW) identification cards approved by the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) as proof that individuals are licensed in the state. The permits can be used in lieu of the obsolete typed paper form provided by DOJ. AB 2510 passed the Senate and is now headed back to the Assembly for a concurrence vote. Contact your Assembly member and ask that they support AB 2510.

OPPOSE – SB 1332 would modify the firearm registration process to allow for joint registration by spouses and domestic partners and require DOJ to maintain both names on the registry. In addition, SB 1332 would further complicate California’s already stringent firearm loaning process and would allow DOJ to take money from the non-related Firearm Safety and Enforcement Special Fund for other DOJ projects. The practice of utilizing fees paid by gun owners on unrelated projects needs to stop. This attempt comes on the heels of a failed audit request of the Dealer Record of Sale (DROS) special fund. The DROS account held a massive surplus just a few short years ago and now is in a state of structural imbalance due to similar practices. Please contact members of the Assembly and ask that they oppose SB 1332.

OPPOSE - AB 450 would delete the $100 fee limit on CCW application processing and require more fees to cover issuing and enforcement of a license. The enforcement aspect of this bill is so ambiguous that it could only be perceived as an effort to price out the ordinary citizen. AB 450 passed the Senate and has now been referred to the Assembly committee on Public Safety where it has been scheduled for a hearing on Tuesday, August 23rd. Please contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and ask that they oppose AB 450.

As previously reported, AB 466 had been “gutted and amended” in an effort to redefine “good cause” as it pertains to obtaining a concealed firearms license in California. The bill never received a hearing on the subject matter and has been “gutted and amended” once again but now deals with Tribal Gaming instead of CCWs.

Veto Gunmageddon:

The referendum effort continues to push forward with more petition locations added across the state. For more information on the efforts and to locate a petition in your area please visit https://www.vetogunmageddon.org/.

 Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow guns owners and sportsmen.
