On Tuesday, March 28, anti-gun SB 497, is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Public Safety Committee. SB 497 would expand the existing one handgun a month law to include ALL guns. Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2016. Governor Brown states in his 2016 veto message, “Given California’s stringent laws restricting gun ownership, I do not believe this additional restriction is needed.”
It is obvious this legislation is another attempt to place more costs and barriers to those exercising their rights and does nothing to address the criminal misuse of firearms or firearm trafficking. Criminals who generally acquire their firearms through illicit means will continue to ignore California’s stringent laws including limitations on the number of firearms that can be acquired within a 30 day time period.

Forward this alert to your family, friends, and fellow gun-owners and urge them to attend the Tuesday, March 28 hearing.
