California Bill Could Close Nearly All Gun Stores In The Golden State

posted on April 20, 2016

A California Assembly committee yesterday considered legislation that could drive nearly every gun store in the state out of business. Assembly Bill 2459 would: 

  • ban businesses operating on residential property;
  • allow localities to impose restrictions in addition to, and more onerous than, state law;
  • require gun stores to record continuous video during business hours of all customers, all locations where firearms are stored, parking lots, and the exterior of the store premises, and store that video for five years; and
  • require dealers to maintain $1-million-per-incident liability insurance. 

The combined expense of these additional onerous requirements would make selling firearms in California unaffordable.

Use Your Power!

California residents, don’t let firearm and ammunition dealers be driven out of business in the Golden State. To contact your State Assembly Member and urge him or her to oppose AB 2459, click here.
