De León is an advocate of gun control. He proposed an annual permit tax of up to $50 to pay for background checks for criminal records and mental illness.[2] In February 2008, as an assemblyman, De Léon introduced AB 2062 regulating sales of handgun ammunition; the bill passed the Assembly but died in the Senate.[3] In December 2012, De León introduced Bill SB 53 in the California Legislature, in which he proposed stricter gun control by requiring ammunition buyer permit requirement and face-to-face ammo sales only at licensed dealers.[4] De Leon has also criticized NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.[5]

DeLeon was the sponsor and author of California Assembly Bill 962[6][better source needed] (AB 962) a gun control law in California, later signed into law by Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger on October 11, 2009. AB 962 was set to take effect on February 1, 2011, but was ruled unconstitutional by Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Hamilton on January 18, 2011, in Parker v. California.[7][better source needed]

DeLeon drew the ire of gun rights advocates following a January, 2014 press conference, in which he improperly and ignorantly used various pieces of weapon terminology interchangeably. He did so in a way that both contradicted the actual functions of those items, and incorrectly claimed that a semiautomatic firearm was capable of firing as many as thirty rounds in one half of one second, which is a higher rate of fire than the MG 42 heavy machine gun and similar to that of the airplane-mounted GAU-12 Equalizer:[8]


This is a ghost gun. This right here has [sic] ability, with a thirty caliber clip, to disperse thirty bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip... in half a second.

08/15/2013 - SB 53 was held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and put on the suspense file. This indicates that the bill is suspended from further committee action
If they don't trust us with guns, how can we trust them with the government?

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen". Samuel Adams,
