California: Counting Down to the end of the 2016 Legislative Session

California: Counting Down to the end of the 2016 Legislative Session

Please contact your state legislators and the Governor TODAY!

 As the California legislature enters the final days of the 2016 legislative session your action is needed on several bills. This week both a pro-gun bill, AB 2510, and an anti-gun bill, SB 1332, were passed and enrolled to the Governor.  In addition, the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed anti-gun AB 450 making it eligible for a concurrence vote by the Assembly and one step closer to the Governor.  For more information about the pending legislation and to take action please see below.

Awaiting Governor Brown’s decision:

AB 2510 sponsored by Assemblyman Eric Linder, 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. Please contact Governor Brown using our TAKE ACTION button below urging him to sign AB 2510 into law.

SB 1332 sponsored by Senator Tony Mendoza, 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 use our TAKE Action button below to contact the Governor and urge his VETO of SB 1332.

 

In the Assembly:

AB 450 sponsored by Assemblyman Kevin McCarty, 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. If the proponents were truly interested in reducing costs of issuance by the responsible authority they would have considered lengthening the time a permit is valid to reduce administrative costs.  AB 450 is eligible for a concurrence vote by the Assembly. Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to contact your state Assembly Member and urge them to OPPOSE AB 450.

 

Webinars on Signed Legislation:

The NRA in conjunction with CRPA have hosted two webinars about the recently signed anti-gun legislation. The third and final webinar will be hosted on Wednesday August 31st at 12pm. The final webinar will cover AB 1511 (restrictions on lending firearms), AB 1695 (False Reports Lost/Stolen Firearms) and SB 1446 (Magazine Restrictions). To register click HERE.  In the event you missed the first two webinars you are able to watch the archived versions by clicking on the links below.  

Webinar #1 – Covering SB 880/AB 1135 (Bullet Button Ban) and AB 857 (Ghost Guns)

Webinar #2 – Covering SB 1235 (Ammo Registration)

 

Veto Gunmageddon Update:

Recently there has been increased attention on the referendum effort and questions regarding the number of petitions. Currently there are seven firearm related petitions. Two unrelated petitions have been lumped in with the package. The NRA has not taken a position on these two petitions as they pertain to court access in child custody cases and electronic signatures for referenda and initiatives.  It should be noted that the electronic signature petition is something to carefully consider if presented with the petition.  While electronic signatures could be beneficial to some efforts, it could also be used to qualify many issues that are of concern to gun owners.   Be aware that anti-gunners such as Bloomberg and Newsom are currently paying millions of dollars to signature gathering firms to qualify initiatives in various states. With digital signatures this could significantly reduce their costs, resulting in additional gun control initiatives. 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.
