California Senate Bill 678 has been scheduled to be heard by the Senate Committee on Appropriations. We need your help to kill this so-called “smart gun” bill before it advances to the Senate floor!
SB 678 would, among other things, force the California Department of Justice to “[s]urvey the state of the current user-authorized firearm industry….Assess market conditions and the barriers to the market for user-authorized firearms in the state….Investigate methods to increase the availability and use of user-authorized firearms in the state…..convene a working group in 2016 [that]….shall consist of, but not be limited to….Firearm safety advocacy organizations….[and] report its findings to the Legislature.”
FPC President Brandon Combs voiced strong opposition to SB 678 in a recent FPC letter of opposition to the Committee, saying that “Senator Hill’s SB 678 is, at best, a bill rife with conflicts of interest and is nothing short of a taxpayer-funded boondoggle that would directly benefit a small number of for-profit corporations.”
Don’t let this become the next Handgun Roster requirement — TAKE ACTION and oppose SB 678 today!
