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