        The California Assembly waived its own rules and took up a number of anti-gun bills without notifying the public. Unfortunately, Assembly Bills 1664, 1673, and 1674 were all approved and now advance to the California Senate. As we have been warning, the California Legislature is engaged in an all-out assault on your right to bear arms and your right to know. NSSF will continue to fight these misguided bills.

        AB 1664 would redefine “detachable magazine” to include any ammunition feeding device that can be removed without disassembling the firearm action, thereby expanding California’s current assault weapons ban. This measure would unjustifiably ban the future sale of many modern sporting rifles commonly used for hunting, firearms training, including hunter safety training and marksmanship practice.

        AB 1673 would redefine firearm in the California state code to include any “unfinished” receiver or frame that can be “readily converted” to a functional frame or receiver. This proposed language is extremely vague in its definition of what could be considered a frame or receiver.

        AB 1674 would prohibit someone from purchasing more than one firearm in a 30-day period. This would include both handguns and long guns.

        A number of bills are still pending Assembly consideration.

        Please contact your Assembly Member and respectfully urge him or her to vote “NO” when the following bills come up for consideration: AB 156 and SB 1235 (ammunition background checks and purchaser database), and AB 1135 and SB 880 (expansion of California’s assault weapons ban).
