CRPA Alert: Anti-2A Bills On Hold

Three bad bills aimed at your rights on pause at least for now
AB 12 (Irwin), AB 61 (Ting) and AB 879 (Gipson) were all heard in Senate Appropriations Committee today. Because of enormous price tags to you the taxpayer all three were placed in suspense file, where hopefully they stay.

AB 12, was written to increase the duration of the gun violence restraining order and the renewal of the gun violence restraining order to 5 years (a 400% increase), subject to earlier termination or renewal by the court.
AB 61, would similarly authorize, an employer, a coworker, or an employee of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended in the last 6 months to file a petition for an ex parte, one-year, or renewed gun violence restraining order.
Finally, AB 879 would require the sale of firearm precursor parts, as defined, to be conducted by or processed through a licensed firearm precursor part vendor.
Rest easy tonight, CRPA continues to stand up and fight against anti-2A bills in the legislature.
Stay tuned for more updates!


  • I see a huge number of anti-gun laws proposed by the members of the state legislature, and I see that CRPA and NRA are taking some actions to attempt to void them legally, (and I might add that I am eternally grateful to C.D. Michel for taking on the Presidency of CRPA), but what I don’t see are any results. How long should it take to get any results for these inane laws that are on the books and those that are proposed by the nitwits in office that have no clue what firearms are about or the reasons for their existence and use by legitimate owners? I keep hoping for some results, but I don’t see much if any, although I understand that there have been filings for the horrid ammunition law that has been passed and signed by Governor Newsom. I wonder if there are any efforts to eliminate the “Handgun Registry” that prevents me from buying a few firearms that I would really like to have, and cannot buy because they are not on that list, which is in my mind a ridiculous affront to folks that want something not on the list, like a Kimber EVO that I would love to have, or a SCCY CPX2 that is an ideal carry firearm. I suppose that there are resources that are dedicated to those areas that we might see some success, but I have no clue what those areas are and I would sure like to know, and although I donate to CRPA and am a member for many years now, it just seems to me that the odds are so long that we have no chance of ever getting anywhere in this state. Am I wrong? Is there some success in the offing somewhere, sometime?
