Tomorrow, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will be taking up AB 1673, which will criminalize the possession of unfinished lowers and even the raw materials (aluminum blocks, sheet metal, etc.) used to build firearms.
FPC already beat this bill once. The last time it was up in Committee, our legislative advocate and thousands of pro gun supporters calling in were able to convince the Chairman to not take a vote on the bill due to the fact that it is completely ridiculous. But like most things in Sacramento, it never truly dies until we can drive the final nail through its coffin.
This is our chance.
We need to make sure that we are lighting up their phones every single day in order to defeat this and other anti-2A measures.
HOW TO FIGHT:
1. Sign the petition below opposing AB 1673
2. CALL the author of the bill and ask that he pull the bill from the hearing. It is a ludicrous idea; one that needs to go away
3. CALL the Assemblymembers listed below — ask them to “vote NO on AB 1673”
4. Share this email and help us get the word out — time is of the essence
AUTHOR: Asms. Mike Gipson (D – Carson).
WHAT IT DOES: AB 1673 would expand the definition of “firearm” to include the “finished frame or receiver of the weapon, or the unfinished frame or receiver of a weapon that can be readily converted to the functional condition of a finished frame or receiver.”
LOCATION: Assembly Public Safety Committee.
STATUS: AB 1673 will be voted on next Tuesday, March 15th. If passed, it will head to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
