California Governor Schwarzenegger Needs to Hear From You!

Friday, September 29, 2006

 

Governor Schwarzenegger has still not made a decision on SB 59, sponsored by Senator Alan Lowenthal (D-27) and AB 2714, sponsored by Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20). 

There is still time to contact Governor Schwarzenegger by phone at (916)-445-2841, by fax at (916) 445-4633, or via e-mail by visiting www.govmail.ca.gov/ to urge him to protect your Second Amendment freedom by vetoing SB 59 and AB2714. 

SB 59 will expand the definition of the term “firearm” to include the frame or receiver of the gun for purposes of the offense of failure to report a stolen or lost firearm.  This bill also makes it a crime for any person whose handgun is stolen or irretrievably lost to not report the theft or loss to a local law enforcement agency within five working days after his or her discovery of the theft or loss; or within five working days after the date he or she should have reasonably known of the theft or loss.  SB59 will allow local governments to impose even stricter reporting requirements. 

AB 2714 will require that no ammunition (including reloads) may be sold in a retail transaction unless the purchaser personally presents evidence of his or her identity and age, as specified, to the seller of the ammunition.  Additionally, it would severely undermine California’s state preemption law.  Spread the news to fellow gun owners, family and friends that it is critical to call Governor Schwarzenegger and urge him to veto SB 59 and AB 2714.
