California: Governor Must Hear Your Opposition to ALL Anti-Gun and Anti-Hunting Bills

Thursday, September 19, 2013

With several severe anti-gun bills and one egregious anti-hunting bill on his desk for consideration, Governor Jerry Brown (D) MUST hear the VETO request of every law-abiding Californian DAILY.  Governor Brown needs to know that the liberal media has it wrong and that California has hundreds of thousands of law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters as residents and voters.  Governor Brown has until October 13 to make his decision on the bills listed below.

 

It is CRITICAL that every law-abiding citizen call AND e-mail Governor Brown DAILY respectfully urging him to stand up for law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and the Second Amendment.

 

Reassure Governor Brown that Californians do not support outrageous anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation.  Below is a list of all anti-gun/anti-hunting bills that you need to call AND e-mail to urge Governor Brown to veto.  Governor Brown can be reached at (916) 445-2841 and at http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php.

 

Several labor unions have joined with the NRA, conservation associations and other organizations in opposing AB 711.  We appreciate these efforts to stop this ill-advised law, and ask that if you are a member of a union, please let the Governor know this when you submit your veto requests to him.

 

The following anti-gun/anti-hunting bills are going to the Governor for his consideration:

 

Assembly Bill 48 (Skinner) bans the sale of parts and repair kits capable of creating or converting a magazine to a capacity to hold greater than ten rounds.

 

Assembly Bill 169 (Dickinson) limits the sale and transfer of all lawfully acquired firearms that were never, or are no longer, on the California roster of approved handguns to two a year and redefines the technical provisions of single short pistols.

Assembly Bill 180 (Bonta) repeals state firearms preemption by allowing the City of Oakland to enact ordinances that are more restrictive than state laws concerning the registration or licensing of firearms.

Assembly Bill 231 (Ting) expands the law relating to the storage of firearms.

Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) makes California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.

 

Senate Bill 299 (DeSaulnier) makes it a crime if a victim of firearm theft does not report the theft within seven days.

 

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

 

Senate Bill 475 (Leno) effectively bans gun shows at the Cow Palace by requiring approval of the board of supervisors of the Counties of San Mateo and San Francisco prior to any gun shows.

 

Senate Bill 567 (Jackson) redefines shotguns to include any firearm that may be fired through a rifled bore or a smooth bore, regardless of whether it is designed to be fired from the shoulder. SB 567 also bans the sale of shotguns encompassed by the revised definitions that have a revolving cylinder, and requires registration of these currently owned shotguns.

 

Senate Bill 683 (Block) expands California’s handgun safety certificate requirement to apply to all firearms, and prohibits anyone from purchasing or transferring any firearm without a firearm safety certificate.

 

Senate Bill 755 (Wolk) expands the list of persons prohibited from owning a firearm, including persons who have operated cars and boats while they are impaired commonly referred to as DUI.
