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

I am returning Assembly Bill 1673 without my signature.

This bill seeks to stem the growing tide of untraceable homemade firearms on our streets.

While I appreciate the author's intent, the actual wording of this bill is unduly vague and could have far reaching and unintended consequences. By defining certain metal components as a firearm because they could ultimately be made into a homemade weapon, this bill could trigger potential application of myriad and serious criminal penalties.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
