California: our state Senator and Assemblyman MUST Hear Your Opposition to Several Anti-Gun Bills.
Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Several anti-gun bills last week have made it to the state Senate and Assembly floor.
It is CRITICAL that EVERY gun owner, sportsman and Second Amendment supporter in California keep up the pressure on their state Senator and Assemblyman OPPOSING ALL of the anti-gun bills listed below.
Tell your state legislators 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 by opposing the listed bills below.
Contact information for your state legislators can be foundhere. Contact information for members of the Senate Appropriations Committee can be found here. Contact information for members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee can be found here.
The bills below are now pending on the Assembly floor and they could be voted on as early as TODAY. It is CRITICAL that you call AND e-mail your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY urging him or her to OPPOSE SB 53 and SB 199. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.
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. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.
Senate Bill 199 would remove the BB device exception from the imitation firearm prohibition. This would effectively prohibit the manufacture, purchase or sale of anything that was previously considered a BB device (including traditional air guns) unless the entire exterior surface of the device is brightly colored or translucent. Under federal law, airsoft guns are already subject to very specific marking requirements mandated by the federal imitation firearms law. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.
The bills below are now pending on the Senate floor and they could also be voted on as early as TODAY. It is CRITICAL that you call AND e-mail your state Assemblyman IMMEDIATELY urging him or her to OPPOSE AB 1609 and AB 2310. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.
Assembly Bill 1609 would make it a state crime to transport or otherwise import firearms into California that were acquired from out of state, unless the firearms are sent to and transferred through a licensed California firearms dealer. Despite the author’s intentions, this legislation is misguided for several reasons. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.
Assembly Bill 2310 would allow city attorneys in Los Angeles and Sacramento Counties to initiate unlawful detainer actions against residents who have been arrested for any firearm-related crime. The NRA believes that AB 2310 is misguided for several reasons. To view the NRA’s letter of opposition, please click here.
The 2014 legislative session is expected to adjourn at the end of August, so this legislation is moving 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 AND e-mail their state Senator and Assemblyman to OPPOSE the anti-gun bills listed above.
