California: One Gun a Month Bill Scheduled for Hearing

California: One Gun a Month Bill Scheduled for Hearing

Senate Bill 497, is scheduled to be heard on Monday, May 15 in the Senate Appropriations Committee.  SB 497, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), 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.  Please contact the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge them to OPPOSE SB 497.  

Assembly Bill 521, which passed out of Assembly Appropriations last week is now eligible for third reading and a vote on the Assembly floor. AB 521 sponsored by Assembly Member Jim Frazier (D-11), with the new amendments, would significantly reduce California’s high-priced resident elk tags from nearly $450 to $100 and would additionally create an allocation of an apprentice (youth) elk tags for $20 per tag. Currently, youth hunters pay the same price for elk tags as adults.   Please contact your Assembly Member by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge them to SUPPORT AB 521.    

Assembly Bill 424 has still not been considered by the Assembly and remains eligible for a vote at any time.  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.  Please continue to contact your Assembly Member by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge them to OPPOSE AB 424.
