California: Ask Committee to Oppose SB 715

On April 20th, the Senate Public Safety Committee will hear Senate Bill 715. This bill limits when a hunting license satisfies the requirements for adults under 21 purchasing a long gun by requiring the license to be currently valid. This means an individual who has purchased a license for an upcoming season will not satisfy the requirements of the bill. Additionally, SB 715 makes changes to the restrictions on gifts and loans of long-guns to minors in a way that is confusing for well-intentioned individuals trying to understand what is permitted and required.

Please ask committee members to oppose SB 715.
