Attention California Gun Owners: Make Your Voice Heard and
Help Fight the Assault on Ammunition Sales!
Please Contact the California Assembly Today!





Anti-gun hysteria has reached a fever pitch in the Golden State. The California Assembly is considering a bill (Assembly Bill 2062) this session that, if passed, will have dire consequences for Californias law-abiding gun owners.

AB2062 is scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, May 7 in the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Sponsored by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition. Applicants for a permit-to-purchase would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit.

Under AB2062, it would be unlawful to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a handgun ammunition vendor in the Department of Justices database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyers name, drivers license, the quantity, caliber, type of ammunition purchased, and right thumb print, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

Heres what you can do to help protect our Second Amendment freedoms:


Participate in NRAs Virtual Lobby-Dayon Tuesday, May 6 and tell the Assembly to stop supporting ill-conceived anti-gun proposals like AB2062.


On Tuesday, May 6, call, fax, and email the Assembly between 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM and voice your opposition to more gun control proposals. Respectfully, tell your Assembly Member to oppose any assault on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. To identify your Assembly Member and to get contact information, please click here. A roster of the entire Assembly can be found here.


Firearms owners able to travel to the State Capitol will be visiting the legislative offices at the same time your calls, faxes, and emails will be arriving. Please be polite while you address your concerns! The combination of your calls, faxes, and emails, together with those personal visits, will show legislators that California's firearms owners strongly oppose AB2062 and similar anti-freedom proposals.


Forward this message to every gun owner you know and include all gun clubs, stores, ranges and Second Amendment groups. Please cross-post this on the internet on websites and firearm-related forums.




TOGETHER, OUR VOICES WILL BE HEARD!

TOGETHER, WE CAN STOP THE ANTI-FREEDOM FORCES AND
PROTECT OUR RIGHTS!

They have already said, I believe, that this is dead in the water.

I'd still voice your opinion. We've had some bills here in CO that were "dead" and somehow keep slipping up the ladder.

DW, that's what they said three years in a row about the lead ban. And voila... fourth time's the charm!

You can't turn your back, because this is a never-ending battle. They will continue to throw these things in front of the politicos until the apocalypse. It's a battle of attrition, and as long as they beat the anti-gun drums, more and more gun-owners will tire of the fight and fade away... and then more gun rights will disappear with them.

The antis have nothing to lose but time. We have everything to lose.

Breaking News of AB 2062 .....

Breaking News of AB 2062 – Ammo Registration

The Assembly Committee on Appropriations has just placed AB 2062 on the Suspense File. Even though any bill with costs of over $150,000 automatically goes to suspense, Assemblyman Kevin DeLeon amended his bill in an attempt to get below this fiscal threshold.

We’ve heard from our supporters that members of the Appropriations committee admit to having received many hundreds of phone calls on AB 2062 since our Lobby Day on May 6th, and virtually 100% in opposition. Key Democrat staffers answering the phone have indicated that their bosses believe that there is no support for this bill and it will die.

The Suspense File is often used by the committee as a tool to bury bills they want to see go away. They simply leave the bill on suspense until after the deadline to take up any more bills. They then claim that the state does not have enough resources to fund the bill which allows the author to save face.

If AB 2062 stays on the Suspense File, we will all know the real reason.

Ask any pro-gun member of the Appropriations Committee and they will tell you that the lobbying effort spearheaded by Gun Owners of California was timely and effective. We will continue to lead the way.
