Next week, three committees will hear anti-gun bills. Please use the “Take Action” buttons below to contact committee members and get involved in protecting our Second Amendment rights in California.
Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee at 2:30 PM on Monday, April 24th
Assembly Bill 28 places an excise tax of 11% on the sales price of all firearms, firearm precursor parts, and ammunition. These taxes are to be collected from California retailers and placed in a newly created “gun violence” fund for appropriation by the state legislature. It is unjust to saddle law-abiding gun owners with special taxes. Such a measure makes it more expensive for law-abiding citizens to exercise a constitutional right, and discourages them from practicing to be safe and proficient with their firearms for purposes such as self-defense, competition, and hunting.

Assembly Public Safety Committee at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, April 25th
Assembly Bill 36 denies Second Amendment rights to respondents of protective orders for an additional three years after the order expires.
Assembly Bill 732 goes above and beyond federal law in its requirement for individuals to relinquish their firearms upon conviction of a prohibiting offense. In addition, it creates a verification and enforcement procedure that can potentially violate the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
Assembly Bill 733 prohibits state and local government entities from selling off surplus firearms, ammunition, and body armor. This prevents them from being good stewards of taxpayer money and prevents the public from buying these taxpayer funded items, which are lawful to own.
Assembly Bill 1420 broadens the grounds for firearm dealer inspections and punitive measures for technical violations. In addition, it requires that prospective firearm purchasers and recipients list their email address on the DROS forms.
Please click this button to ask the Assembly Public Safety Committee to OPPOSE Assembly Bills 36, 732, 733, and 1420.

Senate Bill 8 requires gun owners to maintain liability insurance and to keep proof of insurance at each location where firearms are stored.
