California: Legislature Returns from Spring Recess With More Anti-Gun Hearings Scheduled

This week, the Legislature will return from their spring recess ready to continue their assault on Second Amendment rights. Four separate policy committees are meeting to hear anti-gun bills. Please use the “Take Action” buttons below to contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE these bills.

Senate Public Safety Committee at 9:00AM on April 19th

Senate Bill 1384, introduced by Senator Dave Min (D-37), requires all licensed firearm dealers to have a digital video surveillance system meeting certain standards, to have general liability insurance coverage of at least one million dollars, and to require certain training for all employees annually. California’s firearm retailers are responsible businesses that are heavily regulated by the federal government and through complex California laws and regulations. This proposed legislation only serves to pile more unnecessary costs and regulatory mandates on them.

Please click here to contact the Senate Public Safety Committee and ask them to OPPOSE SB 1384.


Assembly Judiciary Committee at 8:00AM on April 19th

Assembly Bill 1594, introduced by Assembly Member Phil Ting (D-19), creates a private right of action against firearm industry members for failure to implement "reasonable" controls. This intentionally vague term could subject the industry to crippling lawsuits regardless of whether there was any actual violation of law. The firearm industry is already highly regulated through federal and state laws, with violations carrying stiff penalties. This is the latest salvo in gun control advocates' long-running effort to circumvent the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which ensures Americans have reasonable access to firearms.​ The PLCAA does not prohibit lawsuits against the firearm industry for knowingly unlawful sales, for negligent entrustment, and on traditional products liability grounds.

Please click here to contact the Assembly Judiciary Committee and ask them to OPPOSE AB 1594.


Assembly Public Safety Committee at 9:00AM on April 19th

Assembly Bill 1621, introduced by Assembly Member Mike Gipson (D-65), expands what is considered a "precursor part" under existing law and requires serial numbers on those parts. Further, it expands the definition of firearm for purposes of criminal and regulatory penalties to include "precursor parts." And finally, it prohibits the possession, transfer, sale, or advertising of milling machines that have the sole or primary purpose of manufacturing firearms. Unfinished frames or receivers are not regulated as firearms under federal law; however, they are already regulated under state law and are limited to being transferred by licensed vendors in California. Such restrictions continue to cut off access to law-abiding individuals who are looking to acquire firearm parts in accordance with existing law and continue to discourage law-abiding hobbyists who like to build their own firearms, such as to suit their own needs, for the pursuit of the craft, or to explore emerging manufacturing techniques.

Please click here to contact the Assembly Public Safety Committee and ask them to OPPOSE AB 1621.


Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee at 1:30 PM on April 19th

Assembly Bill 2571, introduced by Assembly Member Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D-16), bans advertising or marketing firearms or ammunition in a way that is “attractive to minors,” replacing the language in current law banning specifically “advertis[ing] to minors.” This vague term can potentially ban all firearm advertisements or activities involving firearms, such as hunting and hunter education. Though minors may not purchase firearms or ammunition from dealers under state and federal laws, many minors do use firearms for legitimate purposes under adult supervision and instruction, such as for hunting, competition shooting, and recreational shooting. Advertisements appealing to adult shooters and hunters also appeal to young shooters and hunters. While these young shooters and hunters are not buying firearms or ammunition themselves, their mentors do often include them in the process when shopping to teach them about selecting equipment that is safe and suitable.
