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

I am returning Assembly Bill 603 without my signature.
 
This bill would add an additional exemption for possession of large capacity magazines and expand access to licenses to carry concealed weapons in California.  
 
When it comes to our gun safety laws, I believe that our focus should be on strengthening safety protections - not expanding exemptions.
 
Furthermore, measures to amend these provisions of Proposition 63 are premature until ongoing litigation is resolved.

Sincerely,



Gavin Newsom
