California: Anti-Gun Bills to be Heard in Committee on Tuesday, June 27.

On Tuesday June 27, the Assembly and Senate Public Safety Committees will be hearing anti-gun bills SB 464, SB 497 and AB 424. Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to email members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and urge them to OPPOSE SB 464 and SB 497 and the Senate Public Safety Committee to OPPOSE AB 424. 

 

In the Assembly Public Safety Committee:

Senate Bill 464, sponsored by Senator Jerry Hill (D-13) would further increase the mandatory storage and security requirements for licensed firearms dealers. 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. 

Senate Bill 497, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would extend California’s one-handgun-a-month limitation to all guns.  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.

The following Assembly Public Safety Committee Members need to hear from you! 

AssemblyMember Reginald Jones-Sawyer (Chair) – (916) 319-2059

AssemblyMember Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher – (916) 319-2080

AssemblyMember Bill Quirk – (916) 319-2020

AssemblyMember Blanca Rubio – (916) 319-2048

AssemblyMember Miguel Santiago – (916) 319-2053 

In the Senate Public Safety Committee:

Assembly Bill 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, absent very limited exceptions.   

The following Senate Public Safety Committee Members need to hear from you! 

Senator Nancy Skinner (Chair) – (916) 651-4009
Senator Steven Bradford – (916) 651-4035
Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson – (916) 651-4019
Senator Holly J. Mitchell – (916) 651-4030
