Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 567 without my signature.

Current law defines assault weapon to include any shotgun with a revolving cylinder. In modifying the definition of shotgun to include certain rifles with a revolving cylinder that can fire both shotgun and rifle cartridges, this bill bans a small group of specialty rifles with no identified impact on public safety.

I am not convinced that this amendment is necessary or justified at this time.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
