Columbus, OH –-(Ammoland.com)- A gun registry bill in California is dangerously close to passage.

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance sent out an action alert to California sportsmen earlier in the week on Assembly Bill 1810.

The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D- LA), would require the state to keep registration information for all firearm transfers, including from transfers of commonly used hunting rifles and shotguns.

Current California law requires the state to keep a database containing information acquired from handgun transfers only. The information kept by the state includes the owner’s name and address as well as a description and serial number of the handgun. Under AB 1810, this same information would be kept for all firearms transfers.

“It’s bad enough that the state keeps personal information from handgun transfers,” said Jeremy Rine, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance associate director of state services.

“There is no compelling reason for Californians’ Second Amendment rights being further infringed through this legislation.”

Earlier this year, AB 1810 passed the California Assembly and, on August 12, the bill passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee. The bill could now be voted on by the full Senate at any time.

Take Action! California sportsmen should immediately contact their state senators and urge them to oppose AB 1810. Tell them there is no justification for expanding the state’s registry to include all firearms transfers by law abiding gun owners.

    1. There is a scene in the movie No Country for Old Men where the old father of the sheriff says "You can't stop what's coming." I believe these to be prophetic words.

    2. This Kalifornia resident will be joining the approx 200,000 who leave the state every year.

      I am taking my tax-paying, benefit-to-the-community (registered nurse & firearms instructor) employment with me.

      I am headed to Wyoming to escape this sort of nanny state nonsense, practice my survival skills, and provide a safe haven for friends and family when/if they become refugees.

    3. At what point will the gun owners of CA say enough is enough and do what they gotta do? And if they do it, will the so called "3pers" step up and help them?

    4. compelling reason…..

      Why do we adopt their definitions?

      They have no right to do anything they are doing or have done, even though they lie and say that they do.

      AND…. They're going to continue to do so because they are the masters, and we are their peasants, and if they can manage it, slaves.

    5. CALIF. 'is' one of the most profitable States in the Union!! And continues to be the with strong leadesrship of Gov. Schwarz… They CAN afford it.

      Thats why Tax-payer funds for 'any' idea that supports convenience & safety in Calif. is NOT a big deal. I support MORE taxes from the people for this initiative!

      {PS: I live in AZ.}

      GOV. Schwarz. 4 Re-Election!! Because only CA. knows hows to spend without end!!!

    6. Canada spent 2 Billion dollars registering 6 million firearms and is currently in the process of scrapping that registry as useless.. Wow California must be a VERY wealthy state, in great financial condition to even consider following this Canadian Farce all the way to the poorhouse!
