Three Anti-Gun Bills Awaiting California Governor's Signature
THREE ANTI-GUN BILLS AWAIT GOVERNOR'S SIGNATURE . . . Despite much greater problems in the state, the California legislature passed three anti-gun laws in the final days of session that now await Gov. Jerry Brown's signature. The bills on the governor's desk are SB 427, which would implement a handgun ammunition registration law (AB 962) and add new provisions impacting retailers; AB 809, which would require firearms retailers to report the same sale records for long guns that they currently collect for handguns; and SB 819, which would allow the Department of Justice to use Dealer Record of Sales (DROS) funds to help pay for enforcement of California firearm laws. The governor has until Oct. 8 to decide on the fate of these bills. Please contact him ( http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php
) over the next three weeks via phone calls and emails and urge him to veto SB 427, AB 809 and SB 819.
