Ask your Assembly Member to vote “NO” on AB 1223!
AB 1223 is now on the Assembly floor and will be brought up for a vote by Friday, June 4!

AB 1223 would impose an 11% tax on all long gun and ammunition purchases, along with a 10% tax on handgun sales. This bill is said to “mirror” the federal excise tax paid by sportsmen and women to fund conservation efforts via the Pittman-Robertson Act. The revenue generated by AB 1223, however, would not be used to fund conservation. It would instead fund a program that helps deal with criminal activity.
