Assembly Bill 1674, authored by California Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D – Los Angeles), would make it a crime to attempt to purchase more than one firearm of any type in any 30-day period.
If this sounds familiar, these rules already apply to handguns.
Additionally, it would delete the private party transaction exemption to the 30-day prohibition, making it illegal to purchase more than 12 total firearms in a year.
Gone will be the days of picking up a couple of lowers at a time and paying one DROS fee. If this bill passes, you’ll have to make four trips to the same store and pay a DROS fee per lower.
Want a new rifle and a shotgun for next year’s hunting seasons? You better plan out your purchases a couple months in advance.
Think some smaller gun stores are going to be able to stay in business after this bill passes? Think again.
AB 1674 is supported by well-funded gun control groups like the Brady Campaign and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
It is their priority mission to stop ALL gun sales nationwide.
By rationing all gun purchases to one every thirty days, the Legislature will be giving them a decent start.
