Assemblymember Levine: “Bullet Button” Loophole Must be Closed

Thursday, May 19, 2016

(Sacramento) – With relatives of gun violence victims looking on, Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-Marin County), Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and several other Assembly Democratic lawmakers gathered for a news conference in the State Capitol to discuss the upcoming National Gun Violence Awareness Day (June 2nd) and pending gun related legislation. Assemblymember Levine authored Assembly Bill 1664 to remove the “bullet button” loophole in California’s assault weapons ban. “We raise our children in communities, not war zones,” said Assemblymember Levine. “Military assault weapons have no place on our streets and gun violence must not be tolerated. AB 1664 closes a loophole that allows military-style assault rifles to be sold legally in California.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
