CRPA Firing Line Update

July 21, 2016

Earlier this month, our bi-monthly magazine, CRPA Firing Line, included an error stating that we supported three bills that we in fact oppose.

Each of the bills that were misplaced under “support” can be found below:

AB 1695 (Bonta): AB 1695 would make it a misdemeanor to report to a local law enforcement agency that a firearm has been lost or stolen, knowing the report to be false and create a 10-year firearm prohibition for someone convicted of this offense. (Signed by the Governor)

AB 2706 (Ting): AB 2607 would’ve allowed for an employer, coworker or mental health worker to file a restraining order on an individual to keep them from owning a gun. This individual would not be allowed to defend themselves until 21 days later. In this time, they would have their right to bear arms stripped from them, regardless if the claims were true or not. (Vetoed by the Governor)

AB 1664 (Levine & Ting): AB 1664 would extend the definition of an assault weapon to include all semi-automatic rifles and pistols with a removable magazine and that use “bullet button”. For example, an AR-15 would be included in this. (On the Senate Floor)

We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused and would like to reiterate that we are firmly against any attempt to limit a law-abiding individual’s right to keep and bear arms.

Thank you for your continued support in all of CRPA’s endeavors.
