In an effort to promote proper firearms safety, Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) has introduced AB 2540... and it will be heard tomorrow in the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee.
Meaning we need you to act now!
AB 2540 provides tax relief and incentives for firearms safety devices and storage products, such as safes, by exempting them from sales tax.
Given that California law requires firearms purchasers to provide proof they own the mandated firearm safety devices or state approved locking containers, it only makes sense that the state should also allow for a tax holiday.
This will encourage gun owners and would-be gun owners to acquire the best safety products that fit the needs of their households.
Although it is a modest bill, it has the potential to save millions of dollars for gun owners across California, while increasing public awareness that law-abiding gun owners are responsible and safety-conscious individuals.
The Revenue and Taxation Committee needs to hear your voice.
