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!
