California: Contact a Key Legislator who MUST hear Your Opposition to Drastic Anti-Gun Legislation

Monday, August 26, 2013

Vital for you to contact the Chairman of the state Assembly Appropriations Committee Now

 

This Friday, August 30, the Assembly Appropriations Committee will be casting a series of historic votes on gun rights in California.  Currently the following bills are in this committee suspense file due to the excessive cost of MILLIONS of dollars for implementation being imposed on YOU and the other citizens of California.

Senate Bill 47 (Yee) would ban the use of the "bullet button" on semi-automatic rifles to comply with current law and classify firearms with "bullet buttons" as "assault weapons" and ban their future sale or transfer.  Continued legal possession would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL of your semi-autos with “bullet buttons.”

Senate Bill 53 (DeLeon) would require Californians to obtain a permit BEFORE purchasing ammunition, require a background check before every future ammunition purchase and require registration of ALL ammunition that you purchase.

Senate Bill 374 (Steinberg) would ban the future sale or transfer and classify ALL semi-automatic rifles with a detachable magazine or holding more than ten rounds of ammunition as "assault weapons."  Continued legal possession would require that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL your semi-autos newly classified as “assault weapons.”

Senate Bill 396 (Hancock) would ban the possession of ALL magazines over ten rounds, including the millions of "grandfathered" standard capacity magazines currently legally possessed by Californians.

It is essential that you express your opposition to these nonsensical bills that would only affect and punish law-abiding citizens.  Please contact Mike Gatto, chairman of the Assembly Appropriations Committee, tomorrow, Tuesday, August 27 and ask him to keep ALL anti-gun bills in Assembly Appropriations Committee suspense file and NOT move them to the Assembly floor for a vote.

 

Assembly Appropriations Committee Chairman Mike Gatto

Phone (916) 319-2043

Fax (916) 319-2143

E-mail – assemblymember.gatto@assembly.ca.gov

 

In addition, please urge your family, friends, fellow sportsmen, gun owners and Second Amendment supporters throughout California to contact Chairman Gatto and tell him to keep all anti-gun legislation in the Assembly Appropriations suspense file and not move this legislation to the Assembly floor for a vote.
