APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

California: Anti-Gun Bills Have Committee Hearings Tomorrow

Monday, April 15, 2013

Contact your State Legislators in Sacramento IMMEDIATELY


Many anti-gun bills are scheduled to be heard in committee TOMORROW.  Call AND e-mail your state legislators TODAY urging them to OPPOSE the bills listed below. 
Remind them
 that a criminal by definition does not obey or respect the law and any legislation infringing on gun owners will do nothing to affect criminals or their
access to and misuse of firearms. 
 Instead, urge them to focus on meaningful legislation relating to school safety, mental health issues, marketing of violence as entertainment for our children and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.


Tomorrow, April 16 in the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks and Wildlife at 9:00 a.m. in Capitol room 437 (Click here to listen to this hearing):

Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) BANS the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.

registration, requires registration of ALL those semi-auto rifles that are currently possessed to retain legal possession in the future, and subjects these firearms to all other "assault weapon" restrictions.

Senate Bill 396 (Hancock) BANS the POSSESSION of any magazine with a capacity to accept more than ten cartridges, including currently legally possessed "grandfathered large capacity” magazines.

Senate Bill 567 (Jackson) expands the definition of shotgun for “short-barreled shotguns” that are illegal to own.

Senate Bill 755 (Wolk) expands the list of persons prohibited from owning a firearm.


Your state Senator and Assemblyman MUST hear from you TODAY urging them to OPPOSE the anti-gun bills listed above.  Don't forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners throughout California and urge them to do the same.  We need all of California gun owners and Second Amendment supports to continually call AND e-mail their state legislators.  The California Legislature needs to know that this egregious attack against law-abiding citizens needs to stop.

The NRA recognizes that California is one of the most active Second Amendment "battleground states," so for decades NRA has devoted substantial resources to fighting
for the right to keep and bear arms for Californians. The NRA has full-time legislative advocates in its Sacramento office fighting ill-conceived gun ban proposals. NRA coordinates a statewide campaign to fight ill-conceived local gun bans and regulations. And NRA has been litigating cases in California courts to promote the right to self-defense and the Second Amendment for many years. NRA’s California legal team continues to work pro-actively to strike down ill-conceived gun control laws and ordinances, and to protect the Second Amendment rights of California firearms owners.

litigation efforts, see www.nraila.org/legal/litigation.aspx
