Anti-Gun Bills Must be Stopped in Sacramento

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Contact Your State Legislator TODAY

 

 

There are three anti-gun bills that your state Legislators must OPPOSE.  Your state Senator and Assemblyman MUST hear from you TODAYContact information can be found hereBelow are the bills that MUST be OPPOSED and stopped in Sacramento:

 

Senate Bill 53 would require the collection and reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout California.  It would also ban online and mail-order sales of all ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition.

 

Senate Bill 199 would ban the sale/transfer of used or antique BB devices and imitation firearms that are not colored, as specified.  This is already covered by federal law.

 

Assembly Bill 1014 would allow law enforcement officers to acquire a "gun violence restraining order" against any person by showing only "reasonable grounds" that the person is dangerous.  This bill's low evidentiary standard and lack of a mechanism for individuals to present their own defense before being deprived of their constitutional rights fail to meet American standards for due process of law. Just as restraining orders are abused in other contexts, the proposed "gun violence restraining orders" can be easily abused and issued in cases where officers lack sufficient evidence for an arrest, but wish to deprive an individual of their right to bear arms.  We all know how hard it is to get something back or even corrected after the government seizes it, so it's important for gun owners to have the opportunity to put on their own defense before losing their Second Amendment rights.   

 

The 2014 legislative session is expected to adjourn at the end of August, so this legislation will move quickly.  You must move even quicker to spread the word to your family, friends, fellow gun owners and sportsmen in California urging them to call their state Senator and Assemblyman to OPPOSE SB 53, SB 199 and AB 1014. 

 

Urge your state Senator and Assemblyman to OPPOSE SB 53, SB 199 and AB 1014. 

 

Let them know that criminals do not respect or obey current firearm laws and they will simply ignore any new firearm laws, so let’s try a new strategy and protect law-abiding gun owners.
