Roseville, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Earlier yesterday, the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed AB 2459, the bill that will wipe out every gun store in the State of California.

The bill bans all home FFL dealers, requires constant video surveillance of all parts of the store, and mandates the purchase of an insurance policy that does not exist. In essence, it will eliminate every gun store and, with it, the 2nd Amendment.

That bill now heads to the Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection. With the massive surveillance requirements in the bill, we hope we can reason with a committee that has expressed Constitutional concerns on privacy violations; the same kinds of violations that are within the language of this bill.

But we need you to keep the heat on AB 2459 and continue to voice your opposition.

BEAT AB 2459 IN THE NEXT COMMITTEE

The Committee also killed two commonsense bills sponsored by FPC.

AB 2229, authored by Assemblymember Shannon Grove, would have waived the 10 day wait period if the gun purchaser passed their background check and was either authorized to carry a concealed firearm, possessed a valid Certificate of Eligibility, or owned a registered firearm to pick up a purchased firearm.

The Chair went as far as to silence the voice of Assemblymember Grove when she tried to explain the merits of the bill. They literally turned off her microphone to shut her and the 2nd Amendment down!

AB 2508 by Assemblymember Devon Mathis would have allowed handguns to be reinstated to California’s diminishing Handgun Roster if it did not fail a safety test, allowing the handgun manufacturer to make necessary improvements based on customer feedback and supply chain changes.

Although they were faced with a thinning roster that has had no new handguns added to it, the Public Safety Committee would not allow this reasonable measure through because the guns would not incorporate microstamping. As you know microstamping is a technology that doesn't exist.

VOICE YOUR OPPOSITION TO AB 2459

Even though yesterday was not as advantageous as we would have liked, we still know that we can beat these anti-gun bills and politicians.

Keep up the fight and make sure your voice is heard. The Chair of Public Safety can't turn off your microphone.

    1. Typical California liberal progressive crap.

      Jones Sawyer (D-Los Angeles) “the Legislature sometimes ignores whether or not it’s constitutional or not – we go ahead and make laws because we’re California and we do it anyways….”

    2. These US Codes need to be enforced!!!

      Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241
      Conspiracy Against Rights

      Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
      Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

      UNITED STATES CODE, TITLE 42, SECTION 1983

    3. All the anti freedom laws are unconstitutional and a violation of US Code.

      Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241 
Conspiracy Against Rights
      This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).
      It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.
      Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to ten years, or both; and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or may be sentenced to death.
      Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
      Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law
      This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.
      This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.
      Acts under “color of any law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under “color of any law,” the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

EVERY PERSON SHALL BE LIABLE IN AN ACTION AT LAW SUIT IN EQUITY N0 EXCLUSION FOR JUDGES BY ANY ACT OF CONGRESS.

    4. Well people of California, your liberal democrats have sold you down the drain. With a gun free California the illegals & radicals with their illegal guns can just take what they want and you Californian’s have nothing to protect you and family.

      1. Other states had better take this as an object lesson. Don’t blame the people. This is the same state that gave you Ronald Reagan, that innovated itself into the world’s 8th largest economy. The decent people have either ended up fleeing, or getting used to being ignored. This travesty has only become possible because of decades of well off eastern liberals flooding in to escape the messes they made in their own states and then voting for the exact same policies that caused those messes, and years of rigged elections that nobody with the authority did anything about beyond some yelling and grumbling. The government here no longer has any need to be concerned over the wishes of the electorate. The same thing has already started in several other states. If the bill becomes law, it will result in the collapse of the rule of law, as ordinary citizens will defend themselves, against both the ordinary criminals and the public criminal class (aka any law enforcement agency that sides with Sacramento and attempts to confiscate arms). The eventual result will be martial law and possibly the revocation of the State’s charter. Of course, this is what the technocrats want.

    5. The insurance rrequirementin this bill will cost gun shops more than it is worth, what they want is for the gun shops to pay the price if a gun is used in a crime making the gun shops and owners responsible for any and all crimes committed that involve the use of a gun. It looks like the government wants to make every one but the criminal responsible for crime. Lets get this straight it is the thug that commits the crime NOT the GUN, guns have no power or life.
