On Friday, August 30th, the Assembly Appropriations Committee will be holding a series of historic votes on gun rights in California. In essence, the Legislature controlled by Democrats is about to define then ban most handguns, clips, magazines, and rifles as assault weapons; and require registration for and of ammo. Additional registration and additional taxes will be required to maintain possession of grandfathered weapons; some banned altogether.
Currently the following bills are in this committee suspense file due to the excessive cost of MILLIONS of dollars for implementation being imposed on YOU and the other citizens of California.
Senate Bill 47(Yee) would ban the use of the “bullet button” on semi-automatic rifles to comply with current law and classify firearms with “bullet buttons” as ”assault weapons” and ban their future sale/transfer. Continued legal possession by YOU would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL of your semi-autos with “bullet buttons.”
Senate Bill 53(DeLeon) would require Californians to obtain a permit BEFORE purchasing ammunition, require a background check before every future ammunition purchase and require registration of ALL ammunition that you purchase.
Senate Bill 374(Steinberg) would ban the future sale/transfer and classify ALL semi-automatic rifles with a detachable magazine or holding more than ten rounds of ammunition as “assault weapons.” Continued legal possession would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL your semi-autos newly classified as “assault weapons.”
Senate Bill 396(Hancock) would ban the possession of ALL magazines over ten rounds, including the millions of “grandfathered” standard capacity magazines currently legally possessed by Californians.
It is essential that you voice your opposition to these nonsensical bills that would only affect and punish law-abiding citizens. Please contact AssemblySpeaker John Perez TOMORROW and ask him to keep ALL anti-gun bills in Assembly Appropriations suspense file and NOT move them to the Assembly floor for a vote.
