California: Self-Defense Bill to Be Heard in Committee on Tuesday, January 14


On Tuesday, January 14, at 9:00 a.m. in State Capitol room 126, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will hear Assembly Bill 503, a pro-gun measure sponsored by Assembly Member Heath Flora (R- 12).  AB 503 would allow an individual with a valid concealed carry weapons license to carry to, from, or in a church, synagogue, or other place of worship on the grounds of a public or private K-12 school when the individual has the written permission of the school authority.  Use the TAKE ACTION button below to contact Members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and urge them to SUPPORT AB 503. 


There is no such thing as a gun free zone.  A person intent on criminal violence will not be deterred because of a “no guns” sign or an anti-gun law.  The only consequence of such measures is to ensure law-abiding citizens are disarmed and vulnerable.   

AB 503 would not change prohibited person laws, BUT would allow properly licensed individuals the opportunity to defend themselves and others when criminals take advantage of gun free zones.

Make sure you forward this message to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners and urge them to contact the members of the Committee TODAY.
