"Smart" Gun Bill to be Considered on

Tuesday, April 15 in the California Assembly!
  Please Contact the Assembly Public Safety Committee Today!
  On Tuesday, April 15, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will
consider Assembly Bill 2235, a bill to forbid the sale of handguns other
than "owner-authorized (or "smart") handguns" -- that is, handguns with
a permanent, programmable biometric feature that renders the firearm
useless unless activated by the authorized user. No proven, viable
handgun of this type has ever been developed.

Introduced by Assemblyman Mark DeSaulnier (D-11), AB2235 would require
the Attorney General to report to the Governor and Legislature on the
availability of owner-authorized handguns; once the Attorney General
finds that these guns are available, only "owner-authorized" handguns
could be approved for sale in California.

The law enforcement community has even expressed concerns about the use
of this technology in firearms. How often has your computer
malfunctioned while simply sitting stationary on your desktop? With
that in mind, are you willing to put your personal safety, and that of
your loved ones, in the hands of a sensitive computer system exposed to
recoil, heat, solvents, dirt and grime? For an informative article
about smart guns and the New Jersey law this bill is based on, please

Please contact the members of the Public Safety Committee today and
respectfully urge them to oppose this ill-advised proposal. Contact
information for the Committee can be found below.
