California: Pro-Gun Bill to be Heard in Committee on April 2

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Please contact members of the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety

On Tuesday, April 2, the state Assembly Committee on Public Safety will hear pro-gun Assembly Bill 871.  AB 871, introduced by "A+" rated state Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-71), changes the definition of "good cause" for the issuance of Concealed Carry License (CCW) to include "Personal Protection or Self defense" creating a statewide standard for issuing of CCW permits.

It is imperative that you call members of the Assembly Committee on Public Safety and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT AB 871.  The right to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense is a constitutional right and law-abiding citizens who apply to carry concealed should be allowed to exercise that right rather than it being a discretionary decision at the local level.  Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners in California and urge them to do the same.
