California: Coalition for Civil Liberties Announces Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys Opposition to Newsom Ballot Initiative

California: Coalition for Civil Liberties Announces Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys Opposition to Newsom Ballot Initiative

Today, March 17, 2016, the Coalition for Civil Liberties announced that the Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADAA) officially delivered a letter to Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom OPPOSING his gun control ballot initiative misnamed the “Safety for All Act of 2016.”  The Coalition for Civil Liberties Official announcement is below.  We commend the ADAA for taking this position.

Today, the Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADAA) delivered a letter to Newsom’s campaign office announcing its opposition to Gavin Newsom’s ill-conceived ballot initiative.

ADAA President Michele Hanisee writes:  “[Newsom’s initiative] would do nothing to stop criminals from getting ammunition or larger-capacity magazines.  The actual result is that it further incentivizes the criminals to commit residential burglaries and armed robberies of gun stores.”  You can read the full letter on our website and read the story in the Los Angeles Times.

Earlier this week, the California State Sheriffs’ Association sent Newsom a similar message, which was reported by The Sacramento Bee.  The Sheriffs and Prosecutors working to keep criminals off California’s streets are in agreement:  Gavin Newsom’s self-serving ballot initiative must be stopped.

The scope of the opposition to Newsom’s initiative is growing, but he’s already raised more than $1 million and has a significant advantage with an office in the Sacramento Capitol building.  We need to tell Newsom that he cannot use ISIS-inspired attacks to deceive Californians into giving up our civil liberties.  We need to preserve our right to protect our families and ourselves as we choose.  You can help by:

  • Donating to the campaign.  Again, Newsom has already raised $1 million and counting!  Help us catch up with a donation
  • Following us on social media.  Share our content and engage every gun owner you know before it is too late.  We’re on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Spreading the word at your local clubs, ranges, stories and places of worship.  There are excellent resources on our website at www.stoptheammograb.com.  Print them out and share them wherever you can.
  • Registering to vote for the June primary and November general elections.  Make it easy and vote by mail.  Learn more about the requirements here.
  • Reporting fraud by signature gatherers.  We’ve heard some of the people collecting signatures for Newsom’s proposition are distorting the truth.  If you see fraud, report it to Secretary of State’s Elections Division at (916) 657-2166.
