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

U.S.A. -( week, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed SB 118, the budget trailer bill that includes an expansion of California’s “Assault Weapons Control Act” and expedites the effective date on firearm parts checks from 2024 to 2022. Additionally, various policy committees continued to push anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation through the process. Below, are bills scheduled to be considered next week. Use the “Take Action” buttons below to contact members of the committees to oppose these measures. 

Tuesday August 11:

Assembly Appropriations Committee 1:00 p.m.

SB 914, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), limits when those under 21 can purchase a long gun by requiring their hunting license to be currently valid. This means an individual who has purchased a license for an upcoming season will not satisfy the requirements of the bill. Additionally, SB 914 narrows the exemptions of loans of long-guns to minors and raises the fees the California Department of Justice can charge for eligibility checks on certain ammunition purchases and precursor parts.  SB 914 passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee on August 6.

SB 1175, sponsored by Senator Henry Stern (D-27), prohibits the possession of certain African species of wildlife.  The true goal of the bill is to ensure that individuals are not allowed to bring home lawful hunting trophies—even with the approval of the U.S. Government. SB 1175 passed the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee on August 4.   ​​

Wednesday August 12:

Senate Natural Resources Committee 9:00 a.m.

AB 3030, sponsored by Ash Kalra (D-27), seeks to preserve 30% of California’s land areas, waters within the state and oceans off the coast by 2030. NRA joins a broad coalition of conservation minded groups in opposing this legislation as it fails to clearly protect hunting and angling opportunities. AB 3030 was rescheduled from the August 5 hearing date to August 12, due to committee time constraints.

Thursday August 13:

Senate Appropriations Committee time TBD 

AB 2847, sponsored by Assembly Member David Chiu (D-17), revises the criteria for handguns to be certified for sale by requiring a microstamp in one place on the interior of the handgun (current law requires two imprinting locations). The bill also requires the removal of three certified handguns from the roster for each new handgun added.​ It should be noted that no new semi-automatic handguns have been added to the handgun roster since microstamping was certified in 2013. This legislation is nothing more than a means to reduce the options you have to protect yourself and your family. To read more about California’s microstamping law click here.​ AB 2847 passed the Senate Public Committee on August 1.

In California like no other place we see the Ghost of Gramsci at work. Incrementalism, the long march through the institutions and the quiet war on values is how leftists will kill your liberty. California has an unusually high percentage of Progressives, Bolsheviks and useful fools in its population and that is why the governing elites can shred the culture and traditions so easily. Read the bills. Read the vague language. After all, the Queen of California progressives, Nancy Pelosi will tell you that you have to pass and sign laws first and once in law the governing classes will… Read more »


What is the intent of their actions? “Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they… Read more »


If the dumb ass liberals defund the police, who will take away our


No dumb. Evil.


After more than 60 years of Liberal Democrat destruction. I fear that California can not be saved by the Ballot Box or Jury Box, Which Leaves but one choice. The Courage of those who still cherish Liberty and Freedom. To use the Bullet Box. As became clear to Our Founding Patriots after many years of Oppression and Tyranny by the Ruling Higher Class of their time.


Something, something about dominoes…..


Killing hunting they are. What are they (The Dems/Commies) What are they going to say when the Gougers start carrying little kids.
They have really thought this trough.
THE ONLY THINK ON THEIR MIND IS STRIPPING AMERICANS OF THEIR SECOND ADMEN DENT RIGHTS. Nothing else, criminals can rape pillage and plunder. But we are not allowed to stop them. Something is really smelly in Denmark.


Talk about Killing Hunting, New Jersey did that years ago with their restrictions on Bear Hunting in their state! Sussex County in Northwest NJ is a prime area for bears and they have problems at the Fair Grounds with bears disrupting events there, but the goody two shoes don’t seem to care, they haven’t lost any children yet, but sooner than later it will happen, Bears are always looking for an easy meal!!!!!!!!!!!! It is on both ends of the country, EAST and WEST COAST!!!!!!!!!!

The California assembly must not have any other problems in the state to address other than guns, I guess they have cured the drug problems, the gang problems, the homeless people must all have new houses, the pandemic is gone and the state is flush with money to pay their bills.
What is wrong with these people can’t they move on to real problems that the citizens need help with.
Democrats gone crazy.
