Yesterday, the Assembly voted 51-21 to pass Senate Bill 264, previously amended by the Assembly Appropriations Committee to narrow the scope of the bill to prohibit firearm, ammunition, and parts sales in the 32nd District Agricultural Association (Orange County/Costa Mesa). It will now head back to the Senate for concurrence. Please contact your state Senator and ask them to OPPOSE SB 264.
Senate Bill 264, as amended, prohibits officers, employees, operators, lessees, or licensees of the 32nd District Agricultural Association from entering into any agreement to allow for the sale of any firearm, firearm parts, or ammunition on property or buildings that comprise the OC Fair and Event Center or properties in Orange County and Costa Mesa that are owned, leased, operated, or occupied by the District. This imposes a one-size-fits-all restriction to prevent officials from deciding how to use venues. In addition, this prevents businesses from renting taxpayer-funded venues for lawful activities.
Again, please contact your state Senator and ask them to OPPOSE SB 264.
