California: Two Anti-Gun Bills Scheduled for Hearings in Sacramento

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Assembly Bill 1934 is scheduled to be considered by the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 22.

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

AB1934 is a knee-jerk reaction by anti-gun legislators to punish citizens for engaging in the legal act of openly carrying an unloaded handgun.  In reality, the open carrying of firearms by law-abiding citizens is forced by California's unfair concealed carry law, which allows some citizens from some counties to receive a permit to carry, while their neighbors in the next county are denied that basic right for political, not public safety, reasons.


Assembly Bill 2223 will also be heard on June 22 but in the Senate Natural Resources Committee.


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.

Please contact the members of the Senate Public Safety Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose AB1934.  Also, please contact the Senate Natural Resources Committee and ask for their opposition of AB2223.  Contact information for both committees can be found below.
