Contact Members of the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety!
Firearm season has started in the California Assembly. Around the same time every year, the California Legislature starts assigning firearm bills to committee. This year is no different. The state Assembly Committee on Public Safety is expected to hear two anti-gun bills this Tuesday, March 27 at the State Capitol in room 126 at 9:00 a.m.
Assembly Bill 1527, introduced by anti-gun state Assembly Member Anthony Portantino (D-44), would expand on last year’s ban on open carrying of an unloaded handgun to also include unloaded rifles and shotguns.
Assembly Bill 2182, introduced by state Assembly Member Norma Torres (D-31), would require that a person be arrested if they inadvertently attempt to bring a firearm through an airport TSA checkpoint and ban that person from entering that airport in the future.
Please call AND e-mail members of the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE AB 1527 and AB 2182. These bills do nothing to prevent crime and are only trying to stop law-abiding gun owners from exercising their Second Amendment rights in California.
