No rest for the wicked: California Lawmakers are back to their old, anti-gun tricks again. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -( This week, the California Assembly returned to work after an extended recess due to the COVID-19 crisis.  The word was that the legislature would return to focus on certain priority issues.  While we all crave to return to some level of normalcy, one thing we were hoping to leave behind was the continued assault on our Second Amendment Rights by the California Legislature.  However, they just can’t help themselves.

The Assembly Public Safety Committee has announced their agenda for the May 19 hearing and you guessed it, your gun rights are on the table!
Please use the contact information below to call AND email the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee today and urge them to OPPOSE AB 2847 and AB 2362!

* As previously reported, the legislature has implemented new social distancing policies which include limited access to the Capitol, reduced staff size, and special protocols for policy hearings.  To read more about the social distancing policies, please click here.  ​

Tuesday May 19 – Assembly Public Safety Committee Hearing:

AB 2847, sponsored by Assembly Member David Chiu (D-17), revises the criteria for handguns to be certified for sale in California by requiring the microstamp to be imprinted in one place on the interior of the handgun (currently requires two imprinting locations) in addition to the other current requirements.  It would further require the department to remove three certified handguns from the list for each new handgun added.​  It should be noted that no new semi-automatic handguns have been added to the California handgun roster since microstamping was certified in 2013. This legislation is nothing more than an effort to continue to shrink the options you have to protect yourself and your family.  To read more about California’s microstamping law click here.

AB 2362, sponsored by Assembly Member Al Muratsuchi (D-66), authorizes the Department of Justice to levy monetary fines on licensed firearms dealers, in addition to the existing enforcement mechanisms which includes, up to the revocation of a dealer’s license.  This increased authority to levy fines up to $1,000 for minor violations is ripe for abuse and could ultimately drive dealers out of business for inconsequential violations. ​

I remember When California was Great, Good Luck God Bless You All…


This state is run by elected lunatics. Nothing here makes any sense. San Francisco just started giving free booze and drugs to the homeless but taxes soda and ice cream as a health incentive.
Released convicted criminals are let out, but the
law-abiding are demonized for trying to arm themselves. These vipers have no intention of following 2nd Amendment as evidenced by the asinine gun restrictions. Each session of government only brings more proof that the insane are running the asylum.


California is a lost cause. One in four is foreign born. This means most don’t know anything about, nor do they give a rats behind about traditional American values or rights. Frankly, the Leftist elite has easily purchased its votes with welfare programs and gov. pensions. They have consolidated their position with motor voter laws, same day registration and now vote by mail. You have to hand it to them, they have been planning and building their power, step by step for years, and have succeeded in creating a single party state.

I’m behind enemy lines and I agree with you. We have our imports from India, not exactly a country that is a bastion of freedom, ChiCom imports, various border jumpers and the occasional EU refugee and of course the SandBox & Africans. Every last one is from a country that isn’t free and they don’t have a clue about great freedom we have here, but yet they come here for the opportunity to be free and are clueless about the basis of that freedom.


It is a shame that these people HATE America to such an assinine degree. Since they HATE America, they can move to a COMMUNIST nation of their choosing. Thus, leaving American FREEDOM lovers alone to live our lives in peace.

@Yak, Why don’t you lead the way and violently resist the gubbmnint and police forces. Show us how it is done, brother.

Wild Bill

Yakup, You wrote, “See I’ve been trying to get gun owners to violently resist gubbmint and police forces for a long time. ” You admit that you are a manipulator.


Didn’t Heller clarify that they cannot outlaw all handguns? Isn’t that the clear intent and eventual effect of that first bill? How can anyone with a hint of legal knowledge think such a bill will stand? Guess as politicians they don’t give a hoot for practicality, effectiveness or legality of their proposals – just how it will sell to their “core” constituents. I predict that both bills will pass. Benitez will throw out the first with clear and eloquent opinion layout out how it flies in face of constitution, SCOTUS precedence, practicality and fairness – then will be overturned by… Read more »


@Finnky, they could just enact the legislation, then revoke it as soon as it gets to SCOTUS. LIke NYC. SCOTUS couldn’t attack it.


Right! So, how can people still be confused about this?

It ought to be illegal to vote against the 2A.

@Yak, Sun Tsu said, ” If the commander strengthens one front he weakens another.


I think that we were speaking on purely hypothetical terms here Wild Bill.

Wild Bill

@GF, So was Sun Tsu. You should read his book.


Agreed. Everyone should read “The Art of War”, not only once, but many times. Perhaps a mini version to keep in one’s pocket. Like the US Constitution.


I would sponsor Idaho as one of the extremely pro-gun states Jacob. 🙂

Boris Badenov

For a while they will be. Unless the legislature there comes up with bills that state there can be NO anti 2A laws without a 99% vote of the residents and this can’t be changed without a 99% vote of the people, it won’t be for long, all those imports and the anti-freedom loons will f’up Idaho too.


These A-holes will never stop until they are stopped permanently! Calicrap voters should know by now what the democrats are really like when they are in control.


Oh, sure they do. The fact is, they are so scared that they are running away to Republican-held states.

Wild Bill

@uimage, Even after death … they continue to vote.
