Anti-Gun Bills One Step Closer to the Governor’s Desk

June 26, 2018

This week, our rights are under attack on all fronts. With bills to restrict gun sales, the sale of basic firearms parts, and to effectively ban African hunting, our legislators show a blatant disregard for our Constitutional rights.

These bills trample our rights, overstep the boundaries of state legislative authority, and flagrantly defy federal law.

Unsurprisingly, under the chairmanship of the anti-gun Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer, a bill restricting long gun sales easily passed Assembly Public Safety. Despite testimony by CRPA and our allies, our lawmakers would rather pursue their gun ban agenda than abide by the Constitution.

In addition to this, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed Assemblymember Mike Gipson’s draconian restrictions on firearm parts. AB 2382 will end the online sale of “firearm precursor parts” such as barrels, 80% lowers, and certain trigger groups, and will require a background check to purchase them. This bill is a hideous infringement of our Second Amendment rights and will fail to stop criminals from obtaining and using firearms.

In a laughable act of hubris, the Assembly Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee voted to openly defy federal hunting law by banning Californian’s from possessing animals legally harvested in African Nations. In addition to dramatically curtailing the rights of California hunters, this bill will hurt African conservation efforts and pull vital resources away from California Game Wardens.

These bills are all one step closer to the governor’s desk. We need your help more than ever to stop this bad legislation. Join the fight today and be prepared to call, write, and email your representatives to fight these bad bills.
