Police Chief Association Chairman Argues Against Prop 63

posted on October 28, 2016

In a Sacramento Bee op-ed, California Police Chiefs Association Chairman Rudy Escalante outlines why the state’s divisive Proposition 63 should be rejected by voters. He argues the legislation would add complexity to myriad existing laws while making it harder for police to do their job. 

Escalante points out that “Proposition 63 would create a system that requires individuals to purchase a separate license just to buy ammunition. … It also does not include exemptions that the Legislature provided to allow police departments to continue purchasing ammunition freely for on-duty purposes, a mistake that will cost taxpayers.” 

Escalante also warned, “While CPCA supports efforts to remove firearms from people who clearly should not have them, this new process creates multiple safety risks for the officers trying to seize them.”
