Gloria Bill Requires Safety Training to Carry Concealed Gun

Friday, February 16, 2018

(San Diego)  – Joined by supporters from Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D–San Diego) announced new gun safety legislation. His Assembly Bill 2103 would require in-person fire arms training before receiving a permit to carry a concealed handgun in public. Assemblymember Gloria pointed out that California currently requires more training to get a driver’s license than it does to get a concealed gun permit. “In fact, we require first time drivers to receive 25 hours of classroom training and another 50 hours behind the wheel,” Assemblymember Gloria said, “Yet state law fails to prescribe similar requirements for firearms and that’s why we’ve introduced AB 2103.”
