California: One-Gun-a-Month Bill Passes Senate as House of Origin Deadline Approaches

The deadline to pass bills from their house of origin is this Friday, June 2.  Yesterday, May 30, the Senate passed anti-gun bill, Senate Bill 497, which extends California’s one-handgun-a-month limitation to all guns, by a vote of 25 – 13.  It is obvious this legislation is another attempt to place more barriers on 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. SB 497 will now move to the state Assembly.  Please contact your Assembly Member and ask them to oppose Senate Bill 497 by using our TAKE ACTION button below.

Anti-gun Senate Bill 464 and pro-hunting Assembly Bill 521 remain eligible for a vote at any time.  Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to contact your state Senator and urge him/her to OPPOSE SB 464 and contact your Assembly Member and urge him/her to SUPPORT AB 521.

SB 464, sponsored by Senator Jerry Hill (D-13) would increase the storage and security requirements of all firearms in the inventory of a licensed firearms dealer.  California already has some of the strictest laws in the country regarding how dealers must store and secure firearms.  This bill simply places more costs and mandates on law-abiding business owners.

AB 521 sponsored by Assembly Member Jim Frazier (D-11), 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.
