We have issued a gun-bill-update-916-16 for your review. As you can see there are still seven bills that are sitting on the Governor’s desk waiting for him to sign or veto.  If the governor vetoes legislation after adjournment, bill must be returned to the legislature within 3 days after the beginning of the next session. The governor must sign or veto legislation within 15 days after transmittal, or it becomes law without his/her signature. The bills in question are: AB450, 1999, 2165, 2361 and 2510. SB 869 and 1332. Contacting government officials and your vote in the November election are CRITICAL to our second amendment rights.

The Bills Explained

Arroyo Grande Sportsmans Club, Club News, Government, Guns, Hunting, In the News, Legislation, NRA
We have tried to explain each bill and it's time for implementation.  Some are very complex and will require the Department of Justice to create new systems to accommodate the required data.  The flyer for informing gun owners of gun safety will be quite expensive to implement. Our guess is while signed implementation might be difficult and time consuming at best and might get delayed or modified.  Also, the NRA and CPRA may bring about law suits.  We'll keep you posted.

As part of California's ban on the use of traditional ammunition for hunting, Phase 2 of the nonleaded ammunition implementation process will begin tomorrow.  Per the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, "Effective July 1, 2016, nonlead shot will be required when taking upland game birds with a shotgun, except for dove, quail, snipe, and any game birds taken on licensed game bird clubs. In addition, nonlead shot will be required when using a shotgun to take resident small game mammals, furbearing mammals, nongame mammals, nongame birds, and any wildlife for depredation purposes." This is the second of three phases.  The final phase, effective July 1, 2019, will require the use of nonleaded ammunition for ALL hunting in California. *Information received from nssf.org.
