FFL Inspections Should Be Left To The Professionals, Not Politicians

January 18, 2018

Today, the CA Senate Committee on Appropriations passed a costly and unnecessary bill to further regulate California firearm dealers. SB 459 aims to create mandatory inspections of firearms dealers every two years, even though DOJ can already inspect them whenever they want to. California’s dealers are already subject to some of the strictest laws in the country regulating the sale of firearms; they don’t need more red tape.

With over 2500 licensed dealers in California, the increased rate of inspection will place a massive strain on an already overburdened DOJ. As evidenced by their recent failure to implement ammunition regulations and issue ammo vendor licenses, DOJ has shown that they are unable to handle their current workload. Coping with an increased inspection rate will only lead the department to continue failing in its regulatory role.

Despite this setback, CRPA would like to thank Senators Bates and Nielsen for voting against this needless regulation of California’s firearm dealers.

Our team in Sacramento is fighting hard against this bill, but we need your help. Contact your State Senator today and tell them to vote against more unnecessary red tape for our state’s FFLs; make sure they know that inspections should be left to the professionals, not politicians. Thank you for your support!
