Please contact your state Assemblyman TODAY to OPPOSE AB 144!
The California Assembly could vote on the open carry ban bill () TOMORROW. It is imperative that you call and e-mail your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY urging him or her to OPPOSE AB 144. Forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners and urge them to call their Assemblyman also. Contact information for your state Assemblyman can be found here.
It is currently legal to openly carry an unloaded handgun into most public places within the state, including restaurants and malls. Crimes are not being committed by individuals who openly carry an unloaded firearm, so how is banning the open carry of an unloaded firearm in California going to lower the state’s crime rate?
This bill is just another way anti-gun activists are trying to further stifle law-abiding gun owners from exercising their right to keep and bear arms in California.
Introduced by anti-gun Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44), AB 144 would change the state’s gun laws and prohibit law-abiding citizens from carrying an unloaded handgun openly.
Remind your state Assemblyman that California is part of the United States and your firearm rights are protected under the Second Amendment. AB 144 will do nothing to stop crime in California.
