California: Time is Running Out for Governor to VETO Several Anti-Gun/Anti-Hunting Bills

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Contact Governor Brown TODAY urging him to VETO all anti-gun/anti-hunting bills

Governor Jerry Brown has until Sunday, September 30 to make a decision on whether to VETO or sign several anti-gun/anti-hunting bills or these bills will go into law without his signature.

Call AND e-mail Governor Jerry Brown TODAY urging him to VETO SB 1221, SB 1366, AB 1527, AB 2460 and AB 2333.  Also, forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners in California and urge them to do the same.  California is going to need all Second Amendment supporters and sportsmen contacting the Governor urging him to SUPPORT the Second Amendment and California's hunting heritage.

Let him know that these bills will only hurt law-abiding gun owners because they are the only ones who respect and obey the law.  These bills will do nothing to reduce California's crime rate.

Governor Jerry Brown can be reached at 916-445-2841 and by e-mail here.

Urge Governor Brown to VETO the following bills:

Senate Bill 1221 – Hunting Ban

SB 1221, introduced by state Senator Ted Lieu (D-28), would ban hunting bears and bobcats with dogs.  Hunting with dogs is a tradition that continues across the country.  Many dog breeds with select characteristics for hunting can be traced back for thousands of years.  Seventeen states allow bear hunting with dogs.  The use of hounds for hunting has never been shown to have an adverse impact on wildlife numbers.  Biologists and other wildlife experts determine regulations and bag limits, just as they do with other hunting seasons.

 

Senate Bill 1366 – Lost and Stolen Reporting of Firearms

SB 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost.  Law-abiding gun owners should not be made a victim twice and punished for theft of their firearm(s).

 

Assembly Bill 1527 – Open Carry Ban (of unloaded long guns)

AB 1527, introduced by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44), would expand on last year’s ban on open carrying of an unloaded handgun to also include unloaded rifles and shotguns.

 

Assembly Bill 2333 – Liability for Negligent Storage of BB Devices

AB 2333, introduced by Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-69), would expand California’s negligent storage law to any person who knowingly or reasonably should have known that a minor is likely to gain access to a BB device without the permission of the minor’s parents or legal guardian and the minor carries the BB device in a public place.  The definition of “public place” includes a “front yard, driveway, doorway or entrance to a building or dwelling.”  If a minor possesses a “BB device” that is visible from your own private property you and your child would be in violation.  Violators would be subject to a civil penalty and/or community service.

 

Assembly Bill 2460 – Ban of Law Enforcement Transfer of Firearms

AB 2460, introduced by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson (D-9), would ban law enforcement officers from transferring handguns that are not on California’s approved “roster” to anyone but law enforcement officers.  Currently, California law allows for the transfer of firearms that are not on the approved "roster" to be transferred to law-abiding civilians.  These transfers must go through a licensed firearms dealer and are only transferred when the new civilian owner has passed a criminal background check.
