    A New California Gun Bill: Contact Your State Legislators

    A friend just set a copy of this bill on my desk. The author, Lori Hancock is molded after Barbara Boxer and I assume no additional description is required.

    If you are a fellow Californian please contact your state legislator and ask them to oppose. The authors comments are typical. She references an incident where a criminal, already breaking several california gun laws, shot a student with a stray bullet. NONSENSE, but the shameful thing is, this bill might just pass.

    The link only referenced the status of the bill, didn't describe the bill itself... Do you have more info? I'm all for opposing anti-gun legislation but I'd like to read it first... (And I'm not even in Cali, heh.)

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    I found this:

    CA Legislative Info and Contact Tools

    Description: Assembly Bill 2566 (Hancock) would repeal preemption and allow local governments to pass anti-gun ordinances.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    AB 2566, as amended, Hancock. Firearms: prohibitions.
    Existing law states the intention of the Legislature to occupy the whole field of regulation of the registration or licensing of commercially manufactured firearms, and that those provisions shall be exclusive of all local regulations relating to registration or licensing of commercially manufactured firearms by local government entities, as specified.

    This bill would except from those provisions the regulation of the registration or licensing of handguns, as specified.

    Existing law provides that no permit or license to purchase, own, possess, keep, or carry, either openly or concealed, shall be required of any citizen of the United States or legal resident over the age of 18 years who resides or is temporarily within this state, and who is not within the excepted classes, as specified, to purchase, own, possess, keep, or carry, either openly or concealed, a handgun within the citizen's or legal resident's place of residence, place of business, or on private property owned or lawfully possessed by the citizen or legal resident.

    This bill would provide that, these neither those provisions nor any other provisions may not be construed to prohibit the regulation by a city, county, or city and county of the possession of handguns of law would limit the authority of any city, county, or city and county to regulate or prohibit the purchase, sale, ownership, possession, keeping, carrying, manufacture, transfer, or distribution of handguns within the jurisdictional limits of that city, county, or city and county, provided however, that any local regulation would be required to exempt peace officers and the transportation of handguns through the local juri sdiction, as specified, from the application of the local regulation .

    So it looks as if some of these localities like SF want DC type handgun bans. Should be moot after this summer, if the state doesn't smack this down first.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."
