Today, the Public Safety Committees of each chamber will hear bills for even more gun control laws in California. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE these bills.
Assembly Public Safety Committee at 9:00AM
Assembly Bill 455 expands California’s prohibited persons categories for certain misdemeanor crimes. This bill was rescheduled from last week.
Assembly Bill 667 expands California’s flawed “red flag” gun confiscation scheme by allowing the orders to be renewed for up to ten years each time. The bill does not add any additional due process protections. This bill was rescheduled from last week.
Assembly Bill 1089 expands California’s ban on private citizens and non-professional users making firearms with CNC milling machines or possessing CNC milling machines that have the “primary” or “intended” function of manufacturing firearms to also include 3D printers. This is simply another scheme to harass law-abiding hobbyists by preventing them from using modern manufacturing techniques for otherwise lawful purposes.
Senate Public Safety Committee at 9:30AM
Senate Bill 2 is an attempt to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Bruen case, which affirmed the right-to-carry. Among other things, it creates new subjective criteria for the issuance of carry permits to allow authorities to arbitrarily deny applicants, restricts permit holders to carry only handguns registered to themselves, increases the requirements to apply for a permit, and increases “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless.
Senate Bill 368 mandates that licensed firearm dealers offer the service of storing firearms for safekeeping, prohibits firearm dealers from offering items in games of chance (such as by raffles), and expands prohibited persons categories for certain misdemeanor crimes.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE these bills.
