CRPA Supports Law Enforcement and Keeping Our Communities Safe! Support AB 216!

March 18, 2021

The California Rifle & Pistol Association stands in support of AB 216 and strongly urges a YES vote on this legislation.

AB 216 clarifies rules for off-duty law enforcement officers, exempting them from prohibitions on carrying licensed concealed firearms into establishments open to the public.  In California, off-duty peace officers often find themselves in situations where an event or location open to the public, such as sporting events, concerts, amusement parks, carnivals, and fairs, prohibits off-duty peace officers from carrying licensed concealed weapons into the venue.

Sadly, we live in a different world with crimes, civil unrest and active shooter events on the increase proper in-the-moment response is vital to critical intervention and often the difference between life and death. Our law enforcement officers have the ability and are trained to respond to a serious situation that endangers life or property.

CRPA stands with our law enforcement officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe.  Making the law clear to allow them to be armed only makes them and our communities that much safer!

AB 216 is set for Assembly Committee on Public Safety on Tuesday, March 23.
