Update from Assemblymember Hagman

This is the update I received earlier today.  Sadly, it's not good news.  Our state is in dire need of a real hero.

Thank you very much for your support of my legislation, AB 613 which would have repealed several provisions of last year’s AB 962 that both impinge on the Second Amendment rights of California’s gun owners and create restrictions that make the sale of ammunition costly or impractical.


Unfortunately, on April 26th, this bail failed to pass out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee. The votes reflected party lines.


I, along with leadership members of the NRA, presented solid testimony and numerous reasons why AB 962 punishes both responsible businesses and law-abiding gun owners.

Unfortunately, the majority party blocked this common sense legislation from even reaching the Assembly Floor for a vote.


Though this was obviously not the desired outcome, I truly appreciate all of your support. It is citizens like you that will help lead the way to a better California. I will not give up the fight to protect our basic rights and I hope you will also continue this cause. Thank you.


It is an honor to serve you.

District 60


Note: In January of this year, AB 962 was ruled unconstitutional by Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Hamilton and its requirements were thereby put on hold. I introduced AB 613 to simplify matters and avoid a court appeals in hopes the NRA and other organizations can focus their efforts elsewhere.
