Assembly Bill 1134: What it Does
- AB 1134 is a direct attack on the pro-gun lawsuit victory in Lu v. Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca.
- AB 1134 would allow elected sheriffs to delegate carry license (“CCW”) applications to local police chiefs and “opt-out” of processing carry license applications.
- AB 1134 would make California carry licenses even more difficult to get.
- AB 1134 may even affect existing CCW licensees if issuing sheriffs push renewal applicants who reside in incorporated cities to renew through local police departments that are hostile to Second Amendment gun rights.

Assembly Bill 1134: Talking Points
- AB 1134 is NOT SUPPORTED by the California Police Chiefs’ Association.
- AB 1134 is NOT SUPPORTED by any individual police chiefs or law enforcement groups like Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC).
- AB 1134 undermines the will of the Legislature and the wisdom of the courts that “[a]pplications for licenses…. shall be uniform throughout the state.” (Penal Code § 26175.)
- AB 1134 does not require any public notice or comment period prior to any proposed agreements or changes to policies.
- AB 1134 would allow sheriffs to make backroom deals with police chiefs that affect thousands, if not millions, of their residents with nothing more than a phone call.
- AB 1134 threatens the democratic process and local accountability by allowing elected sheriffs to delegate important, legislatively-mandated duties to city-appointed, un-elected police chiefs.
- AB 1134 does not require any publication of agreements and allows local governments to play “hide the ball.”
- AB 1134 is about one thing, and one thing only: Saving the civil-rights violating Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department from a losing legal battle.
