APPEARS IN Hunting

Attention California Gun Owners: Please Contact Governor Schwarzenegger Today!

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

NOTE:  On October 13, 2007, Gov. Schwarzenegger signed AB 1471 and AB 821.

Three pieces of firearm-related legislation are currently on the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) awaiting his consideration.

Assembly Bill 1471 would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number of a firearm be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing.  The manufacture, sale, and transfer of handguns that do not imprint their identifying information on a cartridge case would be a crime.

Assembly Bill 821 would ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting in areas occupied by California condor.  By passing AB 821, the Legislature has usurped the authority of the Fish and Game Commission over the regulation of hunting and the management of the state’s wildlife.  Unlike the Fish and Game Commission, the Legislature did not take into account the effects of a lead ammunition ban on the state’s hunters.  Studies show that a ban will force many hunters to quit hunting altogether having catastrophic consequences on wildlife management practices and the state’s hunting heritage.

Assembly Bill 1645 will protect law-abiding gun owners during a declared state of emergency from the seizure or confiscation of any lawfully carried or possessed firearm or ammunition.

Please contact the Governor and respectfully urge him to veto AB1471 and AB821.  Also remind him to protect your Second Amendment rights during a state of emergency by signing AB1645.  Governor Schwarzenegger can be reached by phone at (916) 445-2841, fax at (916) 445-4633, or visit

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox sent letters to Governor Schwarzenegger urging him to veto AB1471 and AB821.  Click the links below to read them.
