AB1297 – California’s Bill to Make CCW License Fees Un-affordable.
California Bill AB1297 which is in the Senate is another ploy to make carrying a CCW License affordable. California continues to do everything it can to interfere with the rights of the Citizens. This Bill in its text is going to allow California to raise the Costs of obtaining a CCW to anything they want it to be.
California continues to attack good people who are trying to follow the law and want to protect their families. Imagine a CCW fee that is $2000 for a couple of years. Who could afford that? Right now the fees are $175 for a 8 hour class, which does not include the range fees or cost of ammunition for the live fire qualification tests or the fees for doing the background check which are over $100 and the physiological evaluation of $150 if the want to do that.
I realize that having the right to conceal carry is a privilege. In California this is the ONLY way to carry a gun because the state outlawed our Constitutional Right of Open Carry which is currently in the courts. California wants to render its citizens helpless. Criminals don’t get permits to carry their guns. Criminals don’t obey the law. California continues to attack law-abiding citizens thinking that these laws will reduce gun crime when in actuality it does nothing.
The background check on each purchase of ammunition is another piece of red-tape.
California is in the process of passing legislation to require your guns locked up at home AT ALL TIMES. Explain to me how I am supposed to protect my family on a home invasion when my gun is supposed to be locked up and my ammunition stored in another location. This type of law is stupid and is setting up people to be taken advantage by criminals. The Castle Doctrine in California allows me to protect my family with lethal force if someone breaks into my home. Explain to me how I could protect my family with my firearms under lock and key.
There is more pending – like a 5 cent tax on each bullet.
Something to think about.
