Hagman introduces gun rights protection amendment

Latest Press Release from Assemblyman Hagman.

Assemblyman Hagman's bill will take back the rights of gun owners in California

Assemblyman Curt Hagman will amend his AB 373 to be an immediate repeal of AB 962 by Assemblyman De León. AB 962 requires individuals purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale, mandates that dealers keep these records and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice. Ammunition retailers would also have to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers and mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

"The laundry list of new requirements in Assembly Bill 962 treats law abiding citizens like criminals. The only people this bill will affect are those already following the law," stated Assemblyman Hagman, "My bill will ensure that California's responsible gun owners are not punished by this excessive regulation from Sacramento."
