Anti-gun Legislation Passes Assembly Floor

August 7, 2018

Gun ban and anti-hunting zealots have succeeded in pushing their unconstitutional agenda through the California Assembly. Their relentless attack on our Second Amendment and Hunting rights concluded in today’s Assembly floor session. These bills undermine the rights of California gun owners and hunters.

SB 221 (Weiner, D) this bill bans gun shows at the Cow Palace Arena in Daly City. Despite opposition from the fair board and the department of finance, which made valid points about the potential loss of revenue and the poor precedent set by this bill, SB 221 passed the Assembly floor.

SB 1177 (Portantino, D), is a repeat of a similar bill from last session. Despite having been vetoed by Governor Brown twice before, Senator Portantino insists on resurrecting the one long gun a month bill. Restricting long gun sales to one a month will not do anything to reduce violent crime or access to firearms by criminals. Our lawmakers can’t seem to understand that criminals do not buy their firearms legally at their local FFL; this bill will only hurt law-abiding gun owners. Hopefully, Governor Brown will veto this bad bill one last time.

Each of these bills is an attack on our right hunt and to keep and bear arms. These bills are now headed back to the Senate for a rubber stamp concurrence vote. Once passed the Senate, these bills will head to the governor’s desk. We must stop this NOW. Contact Governor Brown and urge him to veto all of these bad bills. Together, there is still a chance to stop this.
