Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a work session for Assembly Bill 286, where it will have a vote. They heard AB 286 just yesterday and added the bill to today’s agenda this morning. Despite opponents bringing up many issues with the bill, they are pressing forward with a vote. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE AB 286.
Assembly Bill 286, sponsored by Assembly Member Sandra Jauregui (D-41), essentially bans home-built firearms for personal use by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law. It prohibits private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms. This confiscatory bill also bans possession of existing, legal, home-built firearms.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE AB 286.
