 AB 7 (Gipson) – Open Carry of Long Guns – REQUEST FOR VETO

As recently amended, AB 7 – legislation by Assembly Member Mike Gipson (D/64-Carson) – would make it illegal to carry an unloaded long gun in a public place or on a public street within a prohibited area located within the “unincorporated” area of a county.

Under the provisions of AB 7, a hunter or shooter could be committing a serious crime simply by carrying his or her unloaded rifle or shotgun to the gunsmith or on their way to a sporting goods store – should they unknowingly pass through a prohibited area. Further, AB 7 would only impact long guns – the rifles and shotguns that are most commonly used by law-abiding hunters, and most rarely used by criminals for committing a crime.

AB 718 (Frazier) – Mosquito Abatement Districts: Wetland MOU – REQUEST FOR SIGNATURE AB 718 – legislation authored by Assembly Member Jim Frazier (D/11-Oakley) – is intended to reduce or eliminate charges currently imposed by mosquito abatement districts for mosquito control on private property managed as wetland habitat. As currently amended, AB 718 would authorize a private landowner to enter into an MOU with their local mosquito abatement district to establish a process to implement best management practices on their managed wetlands which provide for the ecological control of mosquitoes.

SB 464 (Hill) – Firearms Dealers: Storage and Security – REQUEST FOR VETO

SB 464 (Hill) – legislation authored by Senator Jerry Hill (D/13-San Mateo) – would require dealers who sell firearms at a street level location, and who secure firearms at their location with the steel rod or cable method, to install concrete or hardened steel bollards or other devices with a similar structural integrity to protect the location’s front entrance, any floor-to-ceiling windows, and any other doors that could be breached by a vehicle.

California already places severe security requirements on our firearms dealers. Existing California law already

requires firearms dealers to store their inventory in a “secure facility” which, as defined, includes numerous security precautions – all of which must be satisfied. SB 464 would impose unnecessary additional security requirements costing tens of thousands of dollars on most firearms dealers. Although some larger firearms dealers may be able to absorb these costs, SB 464 would have a devastating financial impact on most smaller dealers – driving many of them out of business.

    In AB 718 there is a mention of cost, but not exactly what it would be. There are best practices for mosquito abatement that private landowners may be able to do cheaper than turning it over to Vector Control. I see no comment in here where a private property owner could be given the opportunity to achieve the same goal as vector control by themselves.
    Consider what happens to private property owners when they have to make clearance of weeds around their property to meet fire standards and apply that same to mosquito abatement, is all I’m suggesting.
