This week, both the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees will be considering anti-gun bills. The Senate Public Safety Committee will be considering Assembly Joint Resolution 4 and Assembly Joint Resolution 5 , which have been rescheduled from last week’s committee hearing, in addition to Assembly Bill 893. The Assembly Public Safety Committee will be considering Senate Bill 220. Please use the Take Action buttons below to contact members of the respective committees to urge their opposition.
Bills in the Senate Public Safety Committee:
Assembly Bill 893, sponsored by Assembly Member Todd Gloria (D-78), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Del Mar fairgrounds located in the 22nd District Agricultural Association on and after January 1, 2021.
Assembly Joint Resolution 4, sponsored by Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-4), would encourage Congress to adopt the Background Checks Act of 2019.
Assembly Joint Resolution 5, sponsored by Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-59), would urge the federal government to adopt universal firearm laws using California as an example. California is far from the example when it comes to firearm laws. Lawful gun owners must navigate a maze of gun laws that are ever changing. Each year the legislature considers numerous proposals that continue to place additional restrictions and costs on lawful gun owners while ignoring the fact that criminals are already ignoring the hundreds of laws on the books.
Bill in the Assembly Public Safety Committee:
Senate Bill 220, sponsored by Senator Jerry Hill (D-13), would further increase the mandatory storage and security requirements for licensed firearms dealers. California already has some of the strictest laws in the country regarding how dealers must store and secure firearms. This bill simply places more costs and mandates on law-abiding business owners.
