Tomorrow, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety will hear Assembly Bill 1869, to impose excessive penalties for violating California’s law regarding firearm markings. Please contact Members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and urge them to oppose AB 1869.
Assembly Bill 1869 increases penalties for violating California’s law on serializing home-built firearms and buying, disposing, possessing, etc., any firearm with the manufacturer name, model designation, or serial number altered or obliterated, from misdemeanors to felonies. The existing California law already goes above and beyond federal law in regulating markings on firearms. These penalties are for mere possession, which could cause otherwise law-abiding citizens, without any criminal intent, to permanently lose their Second Amendment rights.
