Updated Info: 06/22/2012 - SB 249 began its travel through the legislative process this year as an agricultural bill. On May 22, after the time for introduction of new bills had passed, SB 249 was completely re-written (gutted and amended) into a bill that now proposes to restrict magazine release components in semi-auto firearms. The bill suddenly changed into its new form following a CBS news story focusing on some semi-automatic firearms.

NRA's concerns regarding SB 249 include the fact that it would make it illegal to possess parts for magazine releases on most semi-auto firearms with detachable magazines.

After NRA explained our concerns about SB249, Senator Yee stated that he would not "move" this severely flawed legislation. However, two members of his staff, Adam Keigwin and Johannes Rognerud decided to proceed with the bill and now the SB249 is in the Assembly Public Safety Committee. To reach these staff members for Senator Yee, call (916) 651-4008.

There are hundreds of thousands of firearms that could be impacted by SB 249, firearms that are currently legally owned and enjoyed by California residents. SB 249 could potentially make criminals out of law-abiding citizens.

The bill has been referred from the Assembly Rules Committee to the Assembly Public Safety Committee and will most likely be heard on July 3. Both the CRPA and NRA are working to stop this bill; please use your power as a law-abiding voter of California to voice your opposition to SB 249 and help to defeat it immediately!

Please make sure to contact ALL of the legislators on the Assembly Public Safety Committee and ask them to OPPOSE this unreasonable bill. Don't hesitate to use the NRA One-Click system to contact all of the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee.
