    California Moves Closer to Banning Open Carry & Registering All Long Guns
    Keep The Pressure On Stop Ab 1810 & Ab 1934.
    [​IMG] California Rifle and Pistol Association

    Sacramento, Ca --(Ammoland.com)- Keep the pressure the legislature on AB 1810 and AB 1934.
    Voice your opposition!
    Both of these bills have made their way to the Senate, and the time for you to act is now! Use the CRPA website to CONTACT YOUR SENATOR TODAY and urge defeat of these bills!
    AB 1810 RIFLE AND SHOTGUN REGISTRATION
    AB 1810 SUMMARY: Applies the same regulations relating to the reporting and retention of records for handguns to long guns, as specified. Specifically, this bill conforms reporting and record retention provisions in order that transfers and information reporting and retention requirements for handguns and firearms other than handguns are the same.
    AB 1810 requires registration of rifles and shotguns in the same way handguns are now registered in California. Under current law, the information collected at the time of purchase of a rifle or shotgun (serial number, make, and model) is destroyed after the background check is completed. AB 1810 will require that the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, as well as the identifying information of the purchaser, be recorded and kept on file by the California Attorney General’s office. AB 1810 will also impose additional costs on firearms owners to maintain the registration system as well as on the state’s licensed firearms dealers and small businesses who already deal with extensive recordkeeping requirements
    Assembly Member Feuer, the author of AB 1810, claims that the registration of rifles and shotguns will help law enforcement track down criminals and persons prohibited from owning firearms. This logic is flawed. Studies have shown that violent criminals steal firearms to commit crimes and of course they do not comply with current law by registering their stolen handguns.
    It is already against the law to possess a stolen firearm or to possess any firearm if you are prohibited from possessing a firearm by law. And most criminals file off the serial numbers on guns used in crimes. In truth, the only persons impacted by this unnecessary proposed law are law abiding citizens.
    AB 1934 OPEN-CARRY BAN (Unloaded Handguns)
    AB 1934 SUMMARY: Makes it a misdemeanor for any person to carry an exposed an unloaded handgun outside a vehicle on his or her person while in any public place or on any public street in an incorporated city. Among other things this bill makes it a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed six months, by a fine not to exceed $1,000, or by both a fine and imprisonment when any person carries an exposed and unloaded handgun outside a vehicle on his or her person while in any public place or on any public street in an incorporated city, or in any public place or on any public street in a prohibited area of an unincorporated territory.
    AB 1934 deletes provisions of current law that allow a firearm to be carried openly in a belt holster. If this bill passes, the open carrying of an unloaded handgun will be illegal with few exceptions. For example, licensed hunters, fishermen, and campers that historically have carried a handgun in a belt holster would be prohibited from carrying a firearm in any prohibited area of an unincorporated area. This would include forest service roads, trails, and campgrounds.
    The problem with AB 1934 is that it does not provide a way for the average person to carry a firearm for self-protection or other legitimate purposes. The direction of this bill is contrary to common sense and the approach taken by most other states. For example, Arizona just passed a law allowing for concealed carry without a concealed carry license.
    THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING OUT AND HELPING TO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS!
    The California Rifle and Pistol Association “CRPA,” founded in 1875, is dedicated to defending the rights of law-abiding citizens to responsibly use firearms for self-defense and the defense of their loved ones, for sport, and for all other legal activities.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    "Yeah....I love this state".

    I have no doubt it will pass, and our wonderful Rhino of a Governor will sign it into law.
    I'm glad I didn't vote for him.

    I wonder in how long they will ban guns from Cops to use when on duty....just like in the U.K.

    AB1810 is not retroactive so it will only affect purchases of new long guns. All your existing long guns are safe from this proposed law.

    AB1934 isn't so bad... It will have great unintended consequences for the anti's. Who cares anything about carrying unloaded handgun in open carry method? That's not self defense.

    We in California are about 1 year away from getting concealed carry for the masses. We can thank the Calguns Foundation , Ed Peruta, Second Amendment foundation, and Alan Gura for the Heller and McDonald supreme court cases which have established so much for us.

    Here are the two civil cases which may win carry for California.

    Peruta v. County of San Diego
    Sykes v. McGinness
