Help NRA Defeat Long Gun Registration and Other Anti-Gun Bills

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee!

On Tuesday, April 20, the Assembly Public Safety passed Assembly Bill 1934.  The bill now joins Assembly Bill 1810 and Assembly Bill 2223 in the Assembly Appropriations Committee where they await consideration.  These bills will be heard on Wednesday, April 28.

AB1934 is a blatant attack on the self-defense rights of law-abiding Californians.  Simply put, this legislation would outlaw the open carrying of a handgun for self-defense. 

AB1810 would establish a registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns. 

Under AB1810, the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser would be recorded and kept on file by the California Attorney General’s office. 

If AB1810 were enacted, violent criminals would continue doing what they do now – obtain firearms through illegal means.  This bill would not decrease crime but will rather have disastrous effects on the already financially unstable Golden State.  AB1810 would impose additional burdens on California’s taxpayers to maintain the registration system as well as on the state’s licensed firearms dealers, small businesses who already deal with extensive business requirements. 

One simply needs to look at Canada, a nation with draconian firearms registration, to see the results – billions in cumulative administrative costs, annual cost overruns, no clear substantiation of public safety benefits, unjust prosecution, and a bureaucratic complexity that daunts those willing to comply.  Ironically, California is considering a new registration scheme as Canada is considering doing away with its system.

AB2223 would outlaw the use of lead shot when shooting or hunting in state-run wildlife management areas.  There is no scientific evidence justifying this proposed ban.  It is intended only to discourage hunting in California and that is why the Humane Society of the United States is in full support.

AB1934, AB1810, and AB2223 are very serious threats to the rights of California’s law-abiding gun owners and must be defeated.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee and strongly voice your opposition to AB1934, AB1810, and AB2223.  Contact information can be found below.
