California FFLs Striking Back Over Proposed Regulations

It’s no secret that living in California has been no picnic for law-abiding gun owners. The Left Coast has prided itself on harsh gun controls and strict regulations that make it difficult to even own a gun. The draconian laws also threaten the very livelihood of gun dealers. In response, the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees (CAL-FFL) is fighting back.

A report from the Gun Feed notes that CAL-FFL has asked the state legislature to reject SB 497, SB 464 and AB 1525. These measures, respectively, call for a limit of one gun purchase a month and mandate cost-prohibitive storage, security and signage requirements.

“These bills add to the ever-increasing number of unnecessary laws and regulations that restrict how, when and where we are able to engage in the business of facilitating the exercise of a constitutionally enumerated right,” said Mike Baryla, president of CAL-FFL. “By limiting how many firearms we can sell to our customers and putting costly mandates on us, the legislature is hitting us from both ends.”
