California: Signature Efforts Still Underway for Veto Gunmageddon Referendum

The deadline to submit signatures for the Veto Gunmageddon Referendum effort is just weeks away! Click HERE to find a signature gathering location in your area.  

The success of the Veto Gunmageddon effort depends on citizen involvement.

In July, after Governor Brown signed several anti-gun bills, a grassroots effort to refer the enacted legislation to the ballot was launched – Veto Gunmageddon. While gun rights organizations, including the NRA, were not responsible for initiating this citizen effort, we have provided legal assistance and have been making the petitions available at events across the state in conjunction with our state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association. To locate a petition in your area click HERE.

Referendum Process:

Bills that have been passed by the legislature and signed into 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:
