California Assembly Approves Long Gun Registration Bill
Sacramento, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- After a lengthy debate which featured passionate opposition from Assembly Members Bill Berryhill and Jim Nielsen and quotes from the California Outdoor Heritage Alliance's opposition letter, AB 1810 passed off of the Assembly Floor this afternoon by a vote of 43-28. The measure now moves to the Senate.
Under the provisions of AB 1810 (Feuer), those who purchase or transfer a shotgun or rifle will be required to register that firearm by submitting their name, address, place of birth, phone number and occupation to the California Department of Justice.
The California Outdoor Heritage Alliance (COHA) will continue to fight this intrusive and unnecessary piece of Legislation as it heads to the Senate.
COHA would like to thank all of those who submitted a letter of opposition to their Assembly Member in anticipation of today's floor vote. Watch for future Field Wires for your opportunity to assist COHA in defeating this bill in the Senate.
