Yesterday, several anti-gun measures were heard in the California State Assembly’s Public Safety Committee.
Cal-FFL’s Legislative Advocate, Craig DeLuz set the tone as he pointed out one of the many flaws in Assembly member Nancy Skinner’s AB 48.
KGO-TV out of San Francisco aired a report that focused on the issue that AB 48 would turn parents or scout leaders into criminals for providing their kids ammunition while teaching them how to safely use firearms.
“I take my daughter to the firing range to teach her how to use our legally-owned firearm and by handing her a magazine with ammunition in it, I am now in violation of the law, and she is now in violation of the law,” said Craig DeLuz from the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees.
The Sacramento Bee reported on an exchange between DeLuz and Skinner regarding the possibility of gun rights groups supporting her measure.
Skinner asked if the industry associations would support or be neutral on her bill if she amended it to satisfy those concerns.
DeLuz responded by saying he has a 10-page list of deficiencies in the measure.
Despite excellent arguments made by gun rights advocates and the member’s stunning inability to address simple questions on the bill, AB 48 would eventually pass out of the committee on a party-line vote.
AB 48 will next be heard in Assembly Appropriations Committee.
