California Legislature to Consider Anti-Gun Bills Very Soon
August 25, 2009

Please Contact Your State Legislators Immediately!

As we have reported, there are two very serious anti-gun bills pending action in Sacramento.  These bills could be heard as early as Thursday so it is critical that your contact your legislators in opposition.

Assembly Bill 962 is currently awaiting action in the Senate.  Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database.  Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.  The bill would also require that purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be kept in dealers' records and subject to inspection by the Department of Justice.  Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. 

Senate Bill 585 is pending a vote by the full Assembly.  SB585, introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace.  In short, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California. 

It is imperative that you stand-up and respectfully make your voices heard!  Please contact your State Senator and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962.  Also, please contact your Assemblymember and ask them to oppose SB585.  Contact information can be found here.
