Yesterday, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 28, to place an excise tax of 11% on the sales price of all firearms, firearm precursor parts, and ammunition. These taxes are to be collected from California retailers and placed in a newly created “gun violence” fund for appropriation by the state legislature. It now goes to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his consideration. Please contact Gov. Newsom and ask him to VETO AB 28.
In addition, the other anti-gun bills still remain eligible for floor votes. Please continue to contact your legislators and ask them to OPPOSE these bills.
