California: "Smart Guns" Bill to be Heard in Sacramento on Tuesday, April 28!

Please Contact the Members of the Senate Public Safety Committee!
On Tuesday, April 28, the Senate Public Safety Committee will hear Senate Bill 697.

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.

Please contact the Senate Public Safety Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose SB697. Contact information can be found below.

California: Gun Show Bill to be Heard Next Week!

Please Contact the Members of the Senate Appropriations Committee!

Senate Bill 585 is scheduled to be considered by the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, April 27.

Introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), SB585 would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace. In short, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California.

Please contact the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose SB585 when it comes before them for consideration. Contact information for the committee can be found below.
