    Thanks Pops. We do have a good one that needs lots of support and some more that need "defeat" support. We can't give up on flooding our reps with opposition, or at least in one

    Two Bills, Assembly Bill 357 and Assembly Bill 962, will be considered by the Assembly Committee on Public Safety on Tuesday, April 21.

    AB357, sponsored by Assembly Member Steve Knight (R-36), would create a “shall issue” concealed handgun permit system in California. Under current law, an applicant must show cause as to why they should be issued a permit to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense. AB357 would remove that stipulation and require sheriffs to issue the license if all other mandated criteria are satisfied.

    AB962, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends,...(posted at Pop's link)

    On Tuesday, April 28, the Senate Public Safety Committee will hear Senate Bill 776 and Senate Bill 697.

    SB776, sponsored by State Senator Loni Hancock (D-9), would mandate the registration of all magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition. The possession of unregistered magazines would be a crime and punishable up to a year in prison.

    SB697, authored by State Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would prohibit the sale of handguns other than "owner-authorized (or “smart”) handguns" -- that is, handguns with a permanent, programmable biometric feature that renders the firearm useless unless activated by the authorized user. No proven, viable handgun of this type has ever been developed. The bill would require the California Attorney General to report to the Governor and Legislature on the availability of owner-authorized handguns; once the Attorney General finds that these guns are available, only “owner-authorized” handguns could be approved for sale in California.
