AB 2062 Placed On The Suspense file. Letter from Sam Parades:
Breaking News of AB 2062 Ammo Registration
The Assembly Committee on Appropriations has just placed AB 2062 on the Suspense File. Even though any bill with costs of over $150,000 automatically goes to suspense, Assemblyman Kevin DeLeon amended his bill in an attempt to get below this fiscal threshold.
We’ve heard from our supporters that members of the Appropriations committee admit to having received many hundreds of phone calls on AB 2062 since our Lobby Day on May 6th, and virtually 100% in opposition. Key Democrat staffers answering the phone have indicated that their bosses believe that there is no support for this bill and it will die.
The Suspense File is often used by the committee as a tool to bury bills they want to see go away. They simply leave the bill on suspense until after the deadline to take up any more bills. They then claim that the state does not have enough resources to fund the bill which allows the author to save face.
If AB 2062 stays on the Suspense File, we will all know the real reason.
Ask any pro-gun member of the Appropriations Committee and they will tell you that the lobbying effort spearheaded by Gun Owners of California was timely and effective. We will continue to lead the way.
Thank you to all of the other organization who took part in our Lobbying Day. We make a heck of a team when we work together.
We will keep you informed about any change in status on AB 2062.

The sign advertisement was taken down around April 12th after all the complaints started to roll in!
We would like to thank our members and all the second Amendment Groups and individuals in California and other states who responded to our email blast, passing on the information, and most importantly, calling the East Palo Alto Police Department number.
United in purpose, we CAN make a difference!
ALERT: East Palo Alto Police are paying people to give them information on gun owners!!!
While I was driving south on 101 I passed by the Ikea store which has a big electronic sign.
There was one ad that said:
"$1000 REWARD For info on people with guns”
The sign had a silhouette of an AK and the logo for a police dept. The sign advised people to report gun owners at the following number 650 321 1112
Ikea appears to own the sign but they use a company called Smart Sign Media to take care of the ads that run. (800-549-7300)
I called Smart Sign Media and was told by "Cheryl" that the ad was placed by the East Palo Alto Police. They were offering up to $1000.00 reward.
I called the 650-321-1112 number and was routed to a lady in police admin at 650-853-3160. I could not get the lady's name but she told me that the program was designed to get the public to report young men who were seen with guns in the street.
When I asked her what happened with these reports she said that these were only considered “incidents" until an officer checked them out.
When I asked her what she meant by checking them out, she said they would dispatch an officer to the address and see if the person had the “proper paperwork" for the weapon. If not, they would confiscate the gun and hold it pending further investigation. At this point a true report would be filed.
When I asked her to define "proper paperwork”, the process for getting a gun back, etc. she got very evasive and said I had to talk to a sergeant. I was then left on terminal hold. I called back twice with the same result.
I need the following:
A. Include a request to have as many people as possible call 650 853 3160 and ask to speak to the sergeant on duty. Get as much info as you can about the program and the details.
B. Get people to start calling Ikea in
C. Get this information out to as many other 2A groups as possible.
