On Tuesday, April 17, the Assembly Public Safety Committee failed to pass both AB 3026 and AB 2860. AB 3026 was granted reconsideration by the committee for a later date. 

Assembly Bill 3026, sponsored by Assembly Member Melissa Melendez (R-67) would improve California’s concealed carry permit system by defining “good cause” and requiring that the issuing authority “shall” issue a permit if the statutorily required criteria is met. In addition AB 3026 creates the ability for non-residents to apply for a California permit.
