California Ammo in Trouble
The California bill to serialize and micro-stamp each piece of ammunition has passed the full Senate and moves to the Assembly. Senate Bill 357 “would require all “handgun” and rimfire ammunition to be serialized and have the purchaser’s identity stored in a Department of Justice-run database. This legislation will be expensive for consumers, threatens law enforcement training and budgets, targets law-abiding citizens and does nothing to minimize or decrease criminal activity.”
For those of you in California, Senate Bill 357 will be heard in the Assembly’s Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 28. Please take action and contact your legislators today! The website that is used to find your legislator is http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html.
Your Support Needed Now for S. 397
SCI is calling on all its members to immediately contact their U.S. Senators in support of Senate Bill 397. This bill will do one thing and one thing only – block the baseless, dangerous lawsuits against the firearms manufacturing industry which seek to blame gun makers for the illegal misuse of their products by criminals. A recent decision in the D.C. Court of Appeals has made the situation more urgent, opening the door to another wave of lawsuits that could topple the industry. Left unchecked, these lawsuits will leave SCI members unable to purchase the firearms of your choice, at any price. Last year, this bill was poisoned by the addition of irrelevant anti-gun amendments, so please be sure to emphasize to your Senators that you urge them to support this bill without ANY anti-gun amendments. You can call the Senate switchboard at 202-224-3121, or you can find detailed contact info for your Senators at www.senate.gov . It is especially important that SCI members in Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, North Dakota and Ohio contact their U.S. Senators without delay.
