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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1927 without my signature.

This bill would require the Department of Justice to study options, and recommend and approach, to developing a system whereby an individual can opt to prevent themselves from buying a firearm.

While this is an interesting area of inquiry, I do not believe that we need to mandate an additional study of this type.

The Department of Justice is currently implementing a number of large scale changes to our gun laws, and I think that any information regarding a system for self-exclusion from gun purchases can be obtained through existing means. The Legislature's standing committees, as well as California's Violence Prevention Research Center are existing avenues through which this inquiry can be conducted.
