    Assembly Passes Leno Bill Taking Illegally Possessed Firearms Off Streets

    http://sd11.senate.ca.gov/news/2013-...rearms-streets

    April 18, 2013


    SB 140 Allocates $24 Million to the Department of Justice to Address California’s Backlog of Illegally Possessed Guns
    SACRAMENTO – The Assembly today passed legislation that would take illegally possessed firearms off the streets and out of the hands of potentially dangerous people who are prohibited from having them. Senate Bill 140, authored by Senator Mark Leno and Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg, appropriates $24 million to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) to enhance the identification and confiscation of handguns and assault weapons that are in the hands of convicted felons, persons who are determined to be mentally unstable, and others who have criminal backgrounds that prevent them from legally possessing guns.

    “We are fortunate in California to have the first and only system in the nation that tracks and identifies individuals who at one time made legal purchases of firearms but are now barred from possessing them,” said Senator Leno, D-San Francisco. “However, due to a lack of resources, only a few of these illegally possessed weapons have been confiscated, and the mountain of firearms continues to grow each day. This legislation makes a significant reinvestment in our state’s unique tracking system to help eliminate this troubling backlog of illegal weapons and protect public safety in our communities.”

    Did we really need a bill to get rid of illegal firearms? Seems redundant


    The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"

    It doesn't make sense to me either. I mean, they are illegal to begin with.

    States have the right to pass these laws.
    The fed does not.

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it looks like a bill allocating money to improve the enforcement of the current laws. I thought that's what people wanted...

    Sounds like a good plan I think they should track them like sex predators

    I'm not FOR that.

    But I'm damn sure for that more than passing more new laws.

    Funny how there's plenty of money to pay legislators and make laws isn't it?

    You're not for enforcing current laws or not for preventing criminals and the mentally insane from having guns? Or is it just any law that has the word "gun" in it?

    I know I'm Florida we have the 10, 20 life law when it comes to crimes involving guns yet state attorneys rarely use them
