California: Pro-Gun Bills Fail to Pass Public Safety Committees

Today, the Assembly Public Safety Committee failed to pass Assembly Bill 1394, sponsored by Assembly Member Travis Allen (R-72). AB 1394 would have addressed the inequitable nature of California’s current concealed carry law by removing the “good cause” requirement and turning California into a “shall issue” state.  

In the Senate, the Public Safety Committee failed to pass Senate Bill 710. Sponsored by Senator Joel Anderson (R-38), SB 710 would have allowed the use of sound suppressors on firearms while taking wildlife. 

The Committee did pass Senate Bill 459, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25). SB 459 will require the California Department of Justice (DOJ) to conduct inspections of federal firearm license (FFL) dealers at least every 2 years. Currently, DOJ already has the authority to inspect FFLs but are not mandated on the frequency.
