Legislative Alert: Gun Bills To Be Heard In Public Safety Committees

January 12, 2018

On January 9, 2018, the Assembly and Senate Committees on Public Safety will hear the first gun bills of the 2018 session.

Oppose:

SB 459 (Portantino, D) would require mandatory inspections of all California firearm dealers at least every two years, even though DOJ can already inspect dealers whenever it wants to. This proposed bill would put an unnecessary and oppressive burden on California’s FFL’s, who are already subject to some of the strictest laws in the country regulating the sale of firearms. This bill will also add more to an already overburdened DOJ. As shown by their complete failure to roll out the new “assault weapon” regulations, ammo regulations, and ammo vendor license issuing system on time, DOJ is unequipped, and unable, to perform its legally mandated regulatory obligation to manage the myriad of gun laws coming out of Sacramento.

Support:

SB 710 (Anderson, R) would end the ban on suppressors in California. By doing so, this bill will make it legal to possess a suppressor so long as the proper federal regulations are followed. Additionally, SB 710 would allow anyone who is legally allowed to possess a suppressor to use it to hunt birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, or amphibians.

AB 1394 (Allen, R) would remove the good cause requirement for the issuance of a CCW in California. If passed, this would make California a “shall issue” state. This would enable thousands of Californians who are currently prevented from carrying by unconstitutional “good cause” requirements to exercise their constitutional right to self protection.

Contact the committee members and tell them to vote no on SB 459 and tell them to support SB 710 and AB 1394. Contact information is below.
