There are multiple bills pending that will be voted upon when Legislature returns from their recess next week.  We encourage you to contact your representatives and urge them to vote NO on the following bills: SB 497 would extend the current prohibition on purchasing more than one handgun within a 30 day period to also include rifles and shotguns. SB 464 would create government mandated standards for how firearms retailers must secure and store their firearms when they are closed for business, while allowing different laws, ordinances or regulations governing retailers' security measures to be adopted by any local jurisdiction.

A recent report in Business Insider (with data collected by State Firearm Law) points out some interesting information about the correlation between gun laws and gun crime/suicides by state. California is listed as having the most gun laws with 104, while Alaska, Idaho, and Montana each have less than 4.  The average number of gun laws per state is 27.  Are you surprised to know that even more gun laws are on the agenda for us this year? The current bills in the House and Senate are as follows: Assembly Bills (AB): 7, 8, 424, 521, 539, 573, 693, 721, 736, 757, 785, 986, 1192, 1195, 1471, 1525, 1544, and 1559 Senate Bills (SB): 22, 299, 464, 497, 536, 620, 652, and 710 For more information about these bills, we recommend…

The Second Amendment, and Your Rights.

Arroyo Grande Sportsmans Club, Government, Guns, Hunting, Legislation
Your gun rights are under attack! Many politicians and dangerous extremists are closing in to take your rights away. Those of us who do not take the time to follow and understand the steps being taken to take away any right are at fault. Following both California and federal anti-gun bills, and the proposed legislations right now is critical if you wish to keep your rights. Equally important is to make your voice heard.
