California: 2016 Legislative Session Scheduled to Adjourn Tomorrow

Please contact Governor Brown TODAY! 

The 2016 legislative session will adjourn tomorrow, August 31.  Today, the Assembly concurred with the Senate amendments to anti-gun bill AB 450, clearing the last legislative hurdle.  AB 450 will now join anti-gun bill, SB 1332, and pro-gun, AB 2510, for consideration by Governor Brown. 

Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to respectfully urge Governor Brown to VETO SB 1332 and AB 450 AND to SIGN AB 2510 into law. 

VETO - 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. 

VETO - 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. 

SIGN - 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.
