The bills below are now pending on the Assembly floor and they could be voted on as early as TODAY. It is CRITICAL that you call AND e-mail your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY urging him or her to OPPOSE SB 53 and SB 199. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.

Senate Bill 53 would require the collection and reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout California. It would also ban online and mail-order sales of all ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.

Senate Bill 199 would remove the BB device exception from the imitation firearm prohibition. This would effectively prohibit the manufacture, purchase or sale of anything that was previously considered a BB device (including traditional air guns) unless the entire exterior surface of the device is brightly colored or translucent. Under federal law, airsoft guns are already subject to very specific marking requirements mandated by the federal imitation firearms law. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.


The bills below are now pending on the Senate floor and they could also be voted on as early as TODAY. It is CRITICAL that you call AND e-mail your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY urging him or her to OPPOSE AB 1609 and AB 2310. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.

Assembly Bill 1609 would make it a state crime to transport or otherwise import firearms into California that were acquired from out of state, unless the firearms are sent to and transferred through a licensed California firearms dealer. Despite the author’s intentions, this legislation is misguided for several reasons. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.

Assembly Bill 2310 would allow city attorneys in Los Angeles and Sacramento Counties to initiate unlawful detainer actions against residents who have been arrested for any firearm-related crime.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
