California: Anti-Gun Language Amended into Budget Bill

Assembly Bill 103, a budget trailer bill, was recently amended to include substantial policy changes that could remove your Second Amendment rights without due process. AB 103 is scheduled to be heard on Tuesday, June 13. Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to contact the members of the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee and also CALL the Committee Members and urge them to OPPOSE AB 103.  Committee member phone numbers are listed below. 

 

Current law prohibits a person from owning, purchasing, receiving, possessing, or having under his/her custody or control a firearm upon conviction of a felony or for ten years upon conviction of a specified misdemeanor (29085 pc). 

AB 103 would make a substantial change to current law by significantly expanding the prohibiting categories to include persons who have a warrant for a felony or disqualifying misdemeanor. This drastic policy change will violate an individual’s right to due process as warrants can be issued without notice or hearing. Furthermore, this policy is not germane to the budget and would circumvent the normal legislative process for policy measures. 

AB 103 also contains additional money and a time for the Department of Justice to implement and allow for the registration of newly classified “assault weapons.” To read more on the recently submitted “assault weapon” regulations click here
