California: This Week's Committee Hearings

The Assembly and Senate Public Safety Committees will be hearing bills this week that will negatively impact your Second Amendment Rights. Contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee to oppose AB 2847 and AB 2362 and also contact Senate Public Safety Committee members and urge their opposition to SB 914. 

Assembly Public Safety:

Tuesday, May 19, 10 a.m.

AB 2847, sponsored by Assembly Member David Chiu (D-17), revises the criteria for handguns to be certified for sale by requiring a microstamp in one place on the interior of the handgun (current law requires two imprinting locations).  The bill would also require the removal of three certified handguns from the roster for each new handgun added.​  It should be noted that no new semi-automatics have been added to the handgun roster since microstamping was certified in 2013. This legislation is nothing more than means to reduce the options you have to protect yourself and your family.  To read more about California's microstamping law click here.  

AB 2362, sponsored by Assembly Member Al Muratsuchi (D-66), authorizes the Department of Justice to levy monetary fines of up to $1,000 on licensed firearms dealers for minor technical violations.  This bill is an obvious attempt to drive dealers out of business for inconsequential violations. ​ ​​

Senate Public Safety:

Wednesday, May 20, 9 a.m.

SB 914, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would limit when a hunting license satisfies the requirements for purchasing a long gun for those under 21 by requiring the license to be currently valid.  This means an individual who has purchased a license for an upcoming season will not satisfy the requirements of the bill. Additionally, SB 914 narrows the exemptions of loans of long-guns to minors and raises the fees the California Department of Justice can charge for eligibility checks on certain ammunition purchases and precursor parts.
