Thank you very much for your support of my legislation, AB 1663 which would have repealed AB 962.

Unfortunately this bill failed to pass the Public Safety Committee on March 23rd. The votes were as follows:

- Chair Assemblyman Tom Ammiano – NO d

- Vice-Chair Assemblyman Curt Hagman – AYE

- Assemblyman Jim Beall, Jr. – NO

- Assemblyman Danny Gilmore – AYE

- Assemblyman Jerry Hill – NO

- Assemblyman Anthony Portantino – ABS

- Assemblymember Nancy Skinner – NO

I, along with leadership members of the NRA, presented solid testimony and numerous reasons why AB 962 punishes both responsible businesses and law-abiding gun owners. Bill Ortiz, Vice President of Turner’s Outdoorsman, gave excellent testimony on the harms AB 962 and his assistance was much appreciated. Thanks to your efforts, we presented over 76,000 letters from people like you from all over California who supported AB 1663.

Unfortunately, the majority party blocked this common sense legislation from even reaching the Assembly Floor for a vote.

Though this was obviously not the desired outcome, I truly appreciate all of your support. It is citizens like you that will help lead the way to a better California. I will not give up the fight to protect our basic rights and I hope you will also continue this cause. Thank you.

It is an honor to serve you.

Assemblyman Curt Hagman

District 60
