Contact Your Assemblymember and State Senator and Urge “NO” Votes
California –-(Ammoland.com)- The California Legislature is set to return next week from a month-long recess, but with their return comes the potential for the pending anti-gun bills to make progress. There are still numerous bills pending in the Legislature that will negatively affect firearms retailers.
SB 497 would extend the current prohibition on purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period to also include rifles and shotguns. SB 497 is in the Assembly Appropriations Committee Suspense File. It is tentatively scheduled to be heard on Sept. 1, 2017. Please contact your assemblymember now to urge a “NO” vote on SB 497!
SB 464 would create government mandated standards for how firearms retailers must secure and store their firearms when they are closed for business, while allowing different laws, ordinances or regulations governing retailers’ security measures to be adopted by any local jurisdiction. SB 464 is currently pending action on the Assembly Floor and could be taken up for a vote at any time. Please contact your assemblymember now to urge a “NO” vote on SB 464!
AB 1525 would, without any increase in public safety, add to the packaging and literature warnings that are already required, thus needlessly increasing the production and distribution costs of manufacturers and the operational costs of retailers. AB 1525 is currently pending action on the Senate Floor and could be taken up at any time. Please contact your state senator now to urge a “NO” vote on AB 1525!
