Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Earlier this week, we stopped the Senate from sending some of the Gunpocalypse bills forward without a vote.
They just voted to allow their version of Gunpocalypse to skip the Appropriations Committee, which is supposed to judge the bills based on their fiscal impact to the State of California.
These bills had an estimated cost of over $4 million!
Apparently they are not concerned with the cost of innocent gun owners who are going to be thrown in jail.
They are not concerned with the cost of enforcing a whole slew of unenforceable laws.
And they are not concerned with any of their own Legislative rules while they make rules for YOU to live by.
The bills that skipped the process:
- SB 880 (Hall): Bans common and constitutionally protected firearms that have magazine locking devices
- SB 894 (Jackson): Re-victimizes victims by criminalizing the failure to report lost and stolen firearms
- SB 1235 (de Leon): Now mirrors Gavin Newsom's Safety for All Act/Ammo Ban
- SB 1446 (Hancock): Confiscation of lawfully acquired, standard capacity ammunition feeding devices
Now that these bills have bypassed the Appropriations Committee without even a single vote, they will be eligible to be voted on this coming Monday.
Not only are these gun bills horrendous, but they have totally skirted the legislative process.
