California: More Anti-Gun Bills to be Heard in Sacramento This Week

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Contact your state Legislator!

The state Senate Appropriations Committee is not the only committee hearing anti-gun bills this week.

On the House Floor on Monday:

Assembly Bill 169 (Dickinson) is expected to be voted on in the state Assembly on Monday.  AB 169 BANS the sale of handguns not on the state-approved roster.  The proponents of AB 169 are pushing this bill as an answer to California’s crime problem.  This legislation, however, would have no impact on violent criminals or gun violence.  Instead, AB 169 would prohibit the transfer of millions of lawfully-owned handguns and jeopardize the continued ownership of these constitutionally-protected firearms.  Please call AND e-mail your state Assemblyman today urging him or her to OPPOSE AB 169.  Contact information and help identifying your state Assembly Member can be found here.

In the state Assembly Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, May 1:

Assembly Bill 231 (Ting) expands the law for Criminal Storage of Firearms and child access.  Another bill that will do nothing to reduce California's violent crime problem and only turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals whether or not anything harmful actually happens, and regardless of whether there was any misconduct on the part of the gun owner.  Ultimately, AB 231 is an ill-conceived proposal that places drastic and unprecedented liability on those who choose to exercise their fundamental rights to keep and bear arms.

We MUST continue to fight.  Don't forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across California and urge them to do the same.  We need all of California gun owners and Second Amendment supporters to continually call AND e-mail state legislators opposing all anti-gun legislation.  The California Legislature needs to know that these egregious attacks against law-abiding citizens must stop.

You can write your representative here urging them to OPPOSE the anti-gun bills listed above.  Please feel free to also copy and paste all the bill information to ensure your state legislators know which bills to OPPOSE.

You can also send a letter to all elected officials in California here.  Please feel free to copy and paste all the bill information above to ensure the elected officials of California know which bills to OPPOSE.

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.
