Anti-Gun Legislation Moving in Sacramento

Please contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee

This Tuesday, April 8, anti-gun Assembly Bill 2305 is scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee. AB 2305 would significantly expand California law by imposing criminal liability if an individual unknowingly carries a firearm on or about his or her person. AB 2305 improperly seeks to bypass a recent decision by the California Court of Appeals. Also, it fails to advance any legitimate public safety interests and will result in inadvertent criminal liability for law-abiding citizens. More importantly, AB 2305 directly conflicts with constitutional protections for carrying a firearm for self-defense as recently confirmed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

AB 2305 is being pushed by Los Angeles prosecutors in an effort to circumvent the recent California Court of Appeals decision in People v. Pellecer, 215 Cal.App.4th 508 (2013). That case specifically held that individuals should not -- and cannot -- be held liable for unlawfully carrying items properly stored in a backpack or purse, instead of carried directly on their person. In the Pellecer case, an individual was wrongly charged with carrying a knife in his backpack. AB 2305 would end-around that decision, and go so far as to apply the expanded carry prohibitions to firearms.

Using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee urging them to OPPOSE AB 2305.
