Shall-Issue Carry Measure To Be Considered Today In California Committee

posted on April 4, 2017

This morning, Assembly Bill 757, which would effectively transform California into a “shall-issue” concealed-carry state, will be heard before the Assembly Public Safety Committee.

The measure, sponsored by Melissa Melendez, would resolve vague and confusing passages in California’s carry statute. The state’s current “may-issue” carry permit system outlines several requirements for application approval, including the existence of “good cause.” But the fact that “good cause” isn’t defined creates a loophole, allowing biased issuing authorities to discriminate against certain applicants as well as creating justification for anti-gun officials to issue as few permits as possible. If passed, AB-757 would clearly define the criteria for “good cause” and mandate that a license must be issued if those criteria are met.
