On Monday, August 12, the California Legislature returns from the Summer recess and will be considering firearm- and hunting-related bills in both the Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees.
Monday, August 12, the Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to consider AB 1254 and AB 1669. Please click the TAKE ACTION BUTTON below to contact the members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE AB 1254 and AB 1669.
Assembly Bill 1254, sponsored by Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-54) would prohibit the ability to hunt, trap or otherwise take a bobcat except in specified circumstances including depredation permits.
Assembly Bill 1669, sponsored by Assembly Member Rob Bonta (D-18), would raise the fees paid by consumers when purchasing firearms. The DROS account has generated a massive surplus at times, so much so that tens of millions of dollars that have been utilized to fund other DOJ programs including a $24 million dollar loan to the Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS) just a few years ago. This legislation appears nothing more than an effort to put more cost constraints on gun owners to foot the bill for the massive cost pressures the legislature has put on DOJ in recent years including ammunition background checks and long gun registration to name a few.
Wednesday, August 14, the Assembly Appropriations Committee is scheduled to hear SB 172. Please use the TAKE ACTION BUTTON below to contact the committee and urge them to OPPOSE SB 172.
Senate Bill 172, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would expand California's existing storage laws.
