California Anti Gun Bill Committee Hearings This Week

California Anti Gun Bill Committee Hearings This Week

This week, a number of anti-gun bills are receiving committee hearings.

On April 20th, the Senate Public Safety Committee will hear Senate Bill 715. This bill limits when a hunting license satisfies the requirements for adults under 21 purchasing a long gun 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 715 makes changes to the restrictions on gifts and loans of long-guns to minors in a way that is confusing for well-intentioned individuals trying to understand what is permitted and required.

Click the button below to ask committee members to oppose SB 715.

On April 22nd, the Senate Governance and Finance Committee will hear Senate Bill 264. This bill bans county and state officers, employees, operators, lessees or licensees from entering into any agreement to allow for the sale of any firearm, firearm parts, or ammunition on property that is owned, leased, occupied or operated by the state or county. This imposes a one-size-fits-all restriction upon all jurisdictions in the whole state, to prevent them from deciding how to use their venues. In addition, this prevents tax-paying businesses from renting taxpayer-funded venues for lawful activities.

On April 22nd, the Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee will hear Assembly Bill 1237. The Assembly Public Safety Committee previously passed it last week.

Assembly Bill 1237 mandates that the California Department of Justice (DOJ) supply state information, including personal identifying information, to the UC Gun Violence Research Center at UC Davis, and allows the DOJ to provide this same information to certain non-profits and state agencies. This legislation creates grave privacy concerns, as well as concerns that this information could be provided to groups that create biased “research” to push gun control policies without actually researching root causes of violence.

Click the button below to ask committee members to OPPOSE AB 1237.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to oppose these bills.
