California: Two Anti-Gun Bills to be Heard in Senate Committee

Gun Rights

Today, June 25th, the California Senate Public Safety Committee will be holding a public hearing on two anti-gun bills. NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to contact members of the committee and encourage their opposition to these bills!

Assembly Bill 1252 codifies the Office of Gun Violence Prevention created by Attorney General Bonta in 2022 and would additionally create a Commission to End Gun Violence within the Department of Justice. While proponents claim the purpose is to conduct “research”, the Office of Gun Violence Prevention and newly established Commission will likely only serve to advocate for gun control policies using tax-payer dollars.

Assembly Bill 2917 expands upon California’s existing Gun Violence Protective Order to allow the court to also consider “threats” directed towards a group or location when deciding whether to issue the order. If issued, Gun Violence Protective Orders result in a five year firearm prohibition, subject to indefinite renewals. These so-called “red flag” orders deprive citizens of their fundamental rights and property without due process safeguards and a clear evidentiary basis.
