California: Open Carry Ban Passes in the Assembly

Yesterday, the state Assembly passed Assembly Bill 7 by a vote of 44 to 29.   AB 7 sponsored by Mike Gipson (D-64), would further extend California’s ban on the open carry of an unloaded firearm while in or upon a public place or public street within a prohibited area located within the unincorporated area of a county. AB 7 is now in the Senate pending a committee assignment.   

AB 424 was not considered during yesterday’s floor session, however it remains eligible for a vote at any time.  Please continue to contact your Assembly Member by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge him/her to OPPOSE AB 424.     

AB 424 sponsored by Kevin McCarty (D-7), would remove the authority of a school district superintendent, his or her designee, or equivalent school authority to provide written permission for a person to possess a firearm within a school zone.
