‘Shall-issue’ legislation introduced to Calfornia Assembly

http://www.guns.com/2014/04/25/shall-issue-legislation-introduced-to-calfornia-assembly/

A sweeping handgun carry license reform bill introduced into the state Assembly could make California a ‘shall-issue’ state if adopted. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, (R), would be the biggest change to the Golden state’s gun laws since 1923.

It follows in the wake of the groundbreaking Peruta decision by a federal appeals court which found San Diego County’s ‘may-issue’ standard of granting concealed-carry permits to be unduly harsh. “AB 1563 fixes California’s handgun carry license system by implementing a fair, efficient, and effective framework that eliminates the burden on local law enforcement while still requiring background checks and that licensees be law-abiding people,” said Donnelly of the bill.

“What we’re doing is unwinding decades of unconstitutional laws and replacing them with a framework that respects our Second Amendment rights, bringing us in line with dozens of other states.”

Donnelly’s bill, AB 1563, is a multi-tiered attack on the California stringent concealed carry laws. Proposing to scrap the current chapter of the state’s penal code on carry licenses, it would replace it with a ‘shall-issue’ standard that accepts ‘self-defense’ as sufficient cause for a law-abiding gun owner to request a license.

Unfortunately for Californians, there is almost no chance of this becoming law.

1. At least the hand-wringing will be entertaining.

 

No chance of passage, but the screeching will be epic.

2. Has the current bribery and crony system been challenged?
