California: Veto Gunmageddon

Monday, August 15, 2016

California: Veto Gunmageddon

In July, after Governor Brown signed several anti-gun bills, a grassroots effort to refer the enacted legislation to the ballot was launched.  The petitions for that effort began distribution at locations across the state late last week with more locations becoming available every day.  To locate a petition in your area click HERE.

Referendum Process:

Bills that have been passed by the legislature and signed into the law by the Governor may be prohibited from becoming law through a successful referendum. In order to qualify a referendum for the ballot must be submitted within 90 days of the Governor’s signature; the proponent must 1) present the referendum to the secretary of state; 2) be certified by the secretary of state; and 3) collect the required number of signatures and return them to the respective counties prior to the deadline. If successful, the measures will appear on the ballot for a vote of the people.  To read an analysis of the referendum process and the challenges that it faces, please click here.  For a breakdown of deadlines and signature requirements please see below:

The success of Veto Gunmageddon effort depends on citizen involvement.  This is a multi-year process assuming the effort gathers enough valid signatures by the deadline.  

While gun rights organizations, including the NRA, were not responsible for initiating this citizen effort, we have provided legal assistance and will be making the petitions available at events across the state in conjunction with our state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association.

The NRA continues to fight for your Second Amendment Rights in California and will continue to pursue legal, political and legislative action to protect and preserve your Second Amendment rights.  For an update on California legal matters please click here, legislative updates visit www.nraila.org and political activities visit www.nrapvf.org.
