California Lawmakers Want to Limit Gun Raffles Benefitting Conservation Efforts

First they came after the AR-15s, now they come after gun raffles benefitting conservation.

A newly-introduced bill in the California legislature would severely cripple conservation efforts in the Golden State if…

AB 3199, which would amend how firearms are transferred, would limit gun raffles hosted by nonprofits to three a year under this proposed bill. Prominent wildlife and habitat conservation groups heavily rely on gun raffles to raise money for their efforts—even in California. Excise taxes collected on firearms—much like hunting and fishing licenses—directly go back to conservation efforts through the Pittman Robertson Act to be administered in individual states.
