If Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) has her way, shall issue CCW will be coming to California. Melendez has introduced AB 757 to put an end to California’s may issue system; a system that is rife with corruption. Under current California practice, CCW permits are issued at the discretion of local law enforcement. Many authorities who do issue these permits do so only to their more prominent campaign donors or close friends. Others do not issue permits at all by setting requirements that are impossible to meet.

Melendez said of her bill:

“It is our Constitutional right to defend ourselves… Californians should not be subjugated to the personal beliefs of one individual who doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment. If a citizen passes the background check and completes the necessary safety training requirements, there should be no reason to deny them a CCW.”

Of course, there’s little chance that her bill will make it out of whatever committee is assigned to kill it. But Democrat lawmakers really ought to consider it. The alternative is CCW in California where the issuing authority is another State such as Utah. As we’ve mentioned before, nationwide CCW reciprocity is on its way. California can either get out in front of Washington D.C. or get steamrollered.

SUNDAY, MAY 15, 2016

The Senate Appropriations Committee added additional anti-gun bills to the agenda to be heard Monday, May 16, at 10am in the John L. Burton hearing room (Rm 4203).  It’s important to contact the members of the Senate Appropriations committee and urge them to OPPOSE SB 880, SB 894, SB 1006, SB 1407, AB 156, AB 857, AB 1135, and AB 1511.  Contact information can be found here or by clicking on the TAKE ACTION button below.

In addition to the previously scheduled bills, the following bills have been scheduled:

Senate Bill 880 would make changes of monumental scale to California’s firearm laws byreclassifying hundreds of thousands of legally owned semi-automatic rifles asassault weapons.  These areconstitutionally protected firearms that have no association with crime.  These changes would happen quickly with great individual costs to many gun owners and no public notice.  Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2013.

Senate Bill 894 would require a victim of a crime to report to local Law Enforcement the theft of a firearm within an arbitrary time requirement of five days and the recovery of the firearm within 48 hours.  Governor Brown has twice vetoed similar legislation stating, “I was not convinced that criminalizing the failure to report a lost or stolen firearm would improve identification of gun traffickers or help law enforcement disarm people prohibited from possessing guns. I continue to believe that responsible people report the loss or theft of a firearm and irresponsible people do not.”

Senate Bill 1006 would enact a California Firearm Violence Research Act and would declare legislative intent regarding the principles by which the university would administer the center and award research funds with taxpayer money.  SB 1006 is research that will do nothing but attempt to convince Californians that lawfully owned firearms are a public menace.

Senate Bill 1407 would make it a crime under California law for an individual to manufacture a firearm without first obtaining California Department of Justice (DOJ) approval to do so and subsequently engraving a DOJ-provided serial number on the firearm.  This legislation should be opposed because it will effectively nullify the long-standing and constitutionally protected activity of building one’s own firearms.   Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2014.

************************

Anti-gun bill, AB 2607, is still awaiting third reading and could be voted on any day.  If you have already not done so, please contact your state Assembly Member and urge him/her to OPPOSE AB 2607.  Contact information can be found here or by clicking on the TAKE ACTION button below.

OPPOSE – Assembly Bill 2607 would amend the “Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO)” procedures that were created by AB 1014 (2014).  GVRO’s were opposed by NRA during the 2014 session because of the lack of due process when depriving an individual of their right to keep and bear arms.  AB 2607 would compound the existing problems by significantly expanding the class of individuals who could seek a GVRO.

************************

On Thursday, May 12, pro-gun bill, Assembly Bill 2510, unanimously passed the Assembly and will be sent to the Senate.  We will send out an update when its next committee hearing has been scheduled.

AB 2510 would allow local law enforcement authorities to issue concealed carry weapons (CCW) identification cards approved by the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) as proof that individuals are licensed in the state. The permits can be used in lieu of the obsolete typed paper form provided by DOJ.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners and urge them to contact the Senate Appropriations Committee and their state Assembly Member about these important firearm-related issues.

AB 2459, which would have outlawed gun dealers in California, failed to pass out of the Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee. But, that didn’t stop the rest of the Legislature from flexing their stoopid…

In what critics call “Gunmageddon,” California lawmakers passed more gun restrictions and magazine bans out of committee on Tuesday.

AB 2510 also passed out of committee. This bill requires the AG’s office to develop a uniform CCW license card. Right now, each county has its own design. While LEOs may recognize the formats used by neighboring counties, it’s unlikely that an Imperial County deputy has ever seen a Shasta County permit.

Shockingly, AB 2478 did not pass out of committee. This bill would have made gun theft a felony. Prop. 47 reduced the theft of many firearms (Those with a price tag under $1000) to a misdemeanor.

MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2016

On Tuesday, April 19, both the Senate and Assembly Committee on Public Safety have hearings scheduled on firearm-related bills.

The following firearm-related bills are expected to be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee.   Please contact the Senate Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 880, Senate Bill 894, Senate Bill 1006, Senate Bill 1037, Senate Bill 1407, and Senate Bill 1446.  The contact information for the Senate Public Safety Committee can be found here or at the TAKE ACTION button below.

Senate Bill 880 would make changes of monumental scale to California’s firearm laws – banning millions of constitutionally protected firearms that have no association with crime.  These changes would happen quickly with great individual costs to many gun owners and no public notice.  Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2013.

Senate Bill 894 would require a victim of a crime to report to local Law Enforcement the theft of a firearm within an arbitrary time requirement of five days and the recovery of the firearm within 48 hours.  Governor Brown has twice vetoed similar legislation.

Senate Bill 1006 would enact a California Firearm Violence Research Act and would declare legislative intent regarding the principles by which the university would administer the center and award research funds.  Let’s be clear, the NRA is not opposed to research that would encourage the safe and responsible use of firearms and reduce the numbers of firearm-related deaths.  Safety has been at the core of the NRA’s mission since its inception.  But that is not the goal of the gun control advocates who are behind Senate Bill 1006.

Senate Bill 1037 would effectively eliminate the statute of limitations for many minor firearms offenses by making these crimes “continuing offenses.”  The bill would also create a presumption that a person is in possession of a firearm if the person is listed as the owner of the firearm in the Consolidated Firearms Information System.

Senate Bill 1407 would make it a crime under California law for an individual to manufacture a firearm without first obtaining California Department of Justice (DOJ) approval to do so and subsequently engraving a DOJ-provided serial number on the firearm.  This legislation should be opposed because it will effectively nullify the long-standing and constitutionally protected activity of building one’s own firearms.   Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2014.

Senate Bill 1446 would ban the simple possession of ammunition feeding devices/magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 cartridges.  The federal “large-ammunition feeding device” ban of 1994-2004 was allowed to sunset due in part to its ineffectiveness.  Yet, California anti-gun legislators still are persisting with this ban knowing that the congressionally-mandated study concluded that “the banned guns were never used in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders” before the ban and the bans 10-round limit on new magazines was not a factor in multiple-victim or multiple-wound crimes.

The following firearm-related bills are expected to be heard by the Assembly Public Safety Committee.   Please contact the Assembly Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE Assembly 2607 and SUPPORT Assembly Bill 2510.  The contact information for the Assembly Public Safety Committee can be found here or at the TKAE ACTION button below.

Assembly Bill 2607 would amend the “Gun Violence Restraining Order” procedures that were created by AB 1014 (2014).  NRA opposed the current GVRO procedures because they provide a mechanism for an individual to lose the right to keep and bear arms with no due process of law.  AB 2607 would compound these problems by significantly expanding the classes of individuals who could seek a GVRO.

Assembly Bill 2510 would allow local law enforcement authorities to issue carry concealed weapons (CCW) identification cards approved by the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) as proof that individuals are licensed in the state. The permits can be used in lieu of the obsolete typed paper form provided by DOJ.

Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsman and urge them to take action also.

Update on April 12, Committee hearings from Tuesday, April 12 and Wednesday, April 13.

OPPOSE – AB 1673 and AB 1674 both detrimental “assault weapon” ban bills were sent to the Assembly Appropriation suspense file for the time being.  We are not expecting any more movement on these bills until May.

SUPPORT – AB 2340 would exempt a person holding a valid license to carry a concealed firearm and who is also protected by a domestic violence protective order, from both the school zone and the university concealed carry prohibitions.  AB 2340 originally failed passage, but has been granted reconsideration by the Assembly Committee on Public Safety.  This hearing date has not been scheduled as of yet.

SUPPORT – AB 2508 would allow handguns that match the original intent of the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale (the “Roster”) to be reconsidered for the Roster.  AB 2508 also originally failed passage, but has been granted reconsideration by the Assembly Committee on Public Safety.  This hearing date has not been scheduled as of yet.

WAPO Fact Checker: Claims that Senate is Shirking a “Constitutional Duty” on Merrick “Mostly False”
Probably one of the earliest lessons most people learn in life is, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” Nobody likes a hypocrite, and when you apply a standard to someone else, don’t expect much sympathy when that same standard gets applied to you. Take Judge Merrick Garland, Barack Obama’s pick to replace Justice Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. We’ve heard a lot recently from the president’s cheerleaders about who Judge Garland is. Judge Garland was willing to defer to the government on how long it could keep firearm purchaser information from NICS background checks on file, because even though the law states it has to be “destroyed,” it did not specify when. “To begin with,” according to the opinion in NRA v. Reno that Judge Garland joined, the law “does not say ‘destroy immediately’; it says only ‘destroy.’” In other words, the mere existence of a duty does not imply any necessary timeline for that duty. Or so Judge Garland himself obviously believes.

Anti-gun members of Congress and California lawmakers are not only determined to advance their campaign against lawful gun ownership, they intend to make you pay for it. Earlier this month, a group of anti-gun U.S. Senators, along with a colleague in the House, took aim at NRA-supported appropriations language that prevents the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from using taxpayer funds to advocate on behalf of gun control. Meanwhile, California lawmakers are moving forward with plans to establish a publicly-funded gun control research center to be run out of the University of California.

SJR 20 would urge the Congress of the United States to lift a prohibition against publicly funded scientific research on the causes of “gun violence”and its effects on public health.  The basic point is that this bill isn’t about problem solving through science; it’s cloaking a pre-existing anti- gun political agenda in the mantle of science.

California: Pro-Hunting Bill to be Heard April 8th (Today)

Posted on April 7, 2014

Call members of the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee Immediately

Tomorrow, Today, the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee is scheduled to hear Assembly Bill 1709, a pro-hunting bill.

AB 1709 would revise the eligibility age to purchase a junior hunting license to include minors that are 16 and 17 years of age.  Under current law, minors over the age of 15 are not authorized to purchase the affordable junior hunting licenses.

This important pro-hunting bill will help promote youth hunting in California by extending the junior hunting license eligibility to persons under the age of 18 and will provide more young people with an opportunity to participate in hunting activities, and to take advantage of special opportunities offered to junior hunters through hunting and wildlife programs.

Last year, the NRA and its state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) supported Senate Bill 610, a major concealed carry policy revision, and it was enacted into law.  For 2012, the NRA and CRPA are supporting the following NRA/CRPA-initiated bills:

Senate Bill 1367, introduced by state Senator Jean Fuller (R-18), would allow a concealed carry permit holder to carry concealed for self-defense while archery hunting.  California law already allows permit holders to carry concealed during firearms seasons.  SB 1367 has been assigned to the state Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee.

Senate Bill 1567, introduced by state Senator Doug La Malfa (R-4), would REDUCE the current firearms transfer waiting period from ten days to “instant” for persons licensed to carry a concealed firearm. SB 1567 is expected to be assigned to the state Senate Public Safety Committee.

Senate Bill 1569, also introduced by Senator Fuller, would REDUCE the current firearms transfer waiting period from ten days to three days. SB 1569 is expected to be assigned to the state Senate Public Safety Committee.

To pass these new pro-gun bills and defeat any anti-gun bills that we may be facing in 2012, it is critical that you start calling your state legislators in Sacramento TODAY!  We are going to need to make the maximum effort to get our pro-gun bills passed and to elect more pro-Second Amendment supports to the legislature in the upcoming elections.  Please call AND e-mail members of the state Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and urge them to SUPPORT SB 1367.  Members of the committee can be found below:

More Pressure Needed Opposing Anti-Gun Legislation in Sacramento

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Contact your state Senator and Assemblymember TODAY!

The California Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees are scheduled to hear several anti-gun bills this Thursday, August 25.  It is crucial that all California gun owners and sportsmen contact the members of the state Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committee to OPPOSE the following anti-gun legislation and SUPPORT the NRA-backed CCW reform bill.

Assembly Bill 809 would require the registration of long guns and is a direct assault on gun rights.  The only value of registration is to help governments confiscate firearms in the future.  Not only does AB 809 violate Second Amendment rights, but it expands the registry to include rifles and shotguns. It would also be a huge waste of taxpayer money at a time when California is drowning in debt.  Gun control advocates estimate the cost of this registration at $400,000, a number that is almost certainly far less than it will actually cost to implement and enforce this registry if enacted.

 Please call and e-mail members of the Senate Appropriations Committee TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE AB 809.

Contact information can be found here.

Senate Bill 124 (OPPOSE) would require every hunter and target shooter in the state to be fingerprinted whenever they purchase ammunition and prohibit the mail order purchase of all ammunition. This would include ammunition popular for hunting and sport shooting that has no association with crime.

Senate Bill 819 (OPPOSE) would allow the Department of Justice to use the Dealer Record of Sales (DROS) funds to help pay for enforcement of California firearm possession laws in the Armed & Prohibited Persons Systems program. The DROS fund monies were originally collected from every firearm purchaser to pay for the administrative process for background checks. This bill will divert and drain hundreds of thousands of dollars of DROS fee monies that YOU have paid for background checks. As a result, the DROS fund will certainly run out of money. When it does, they will almost certainly want another increase in the fees YOU PAY for FIREARM background checks.

Senate Bill 610 (SUPPORT) would standardize the application process for a permit to carry a concealed handgun.  SB 610 would also delete the requirement that a CCW applicant obtain liability insurance as a condition of obtaining a CCW permit.

 Please call and e-mail members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE SB 124 and SB 819 and SUPPORT SB 610.

Contact information can be found here.

Anti-gun extremists are working hard to eliminate gun ownership in California by any possible means.  WE need to work harder to remind them that the Constitution still applies to California. Take action today and help save California from destroying what our Founding Fathers established over two centuries ago.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across California urging them to contact members of the state Senate and Appropriations Committee.
