Yesterday, September 5, the state Senate concurred on the Assembly amendments to SB 464 by a vote of 23 to 14. SB 464 has been sent to engrossing and enrolling before heading to the Governor for his consideration. Please use our TAKE ACTION below to email Governor Brown and urge him to VETO SB 464. If you would like to CALL and FAX the Governor, his office phone number is 916-445-2841 and fax number is 916-558-3160.
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.
Earlier today, the Senate passed Assembly Bill 424, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin McCarty (D-7). AB 424 will now be sent back to the Assembly for a concurrence vote.
It’s important you use our take action button below to contact your Assembly Member and urge their opposition to AB 424 as well as AJR 24. In addition, please contact your Senator to Oppose AB 7. If you would like to call your state legislator please click here to find their contact information.
