Assemblymember and former police officer Mike Gipson (D-Carson) is moving forward with AB 1673, his bill that would define things that ARE NOT firearms AS firearms.
AB 1673 re-defines “firearm” to include “…the unfinished frame or receiver of a weapon that can be readily converted to the functional condition of a finished frame or receiver”
An unfinished frame can include a block of aluminum or a sheet of metal.
AB 1673 would also require that these same bricks or sheets of metal be transferred through a licensed dealer, submitted through DROS, and subjected to an unconstitutional 10-day waiting period.
That’s right — Assemblyman Gipson wants you to undergo a background check, pay for a DROS transfer, and suffer a 10-day wait— for a paperweight.
A firearms safe-handling demonstration would also be required. How exactly you’re supposed to do that on a solid block of metal is left to the imagination.
Worse than that, Assemblyman Gipson wants to incarcerate you for buying and selling pieces of aluminum or sheet metal that could potentially become guns if you don’t go through the “proper channels”.
But we’ve defeated this kind of knee-jerk insanity before. And we can defeat it again — if you stand with us and FIGHT BACK.
Please sign our petition to oppose AB 1673 and ask your friends and family to do the same.
