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.
