Fullerton, CA – -(AmmoLand.com)-CRPA and NRA are acting now to cosponsor Assembly Bill AB 373 (R-Hagman), which is targeted at repealing AB 962, the handgun ammunition registration bill signed into law by the Governor on October 11. With your help, we intend to repeal AB 962 before it takes on February 1, 2011.
Hearings on AB 373 will begin when the Legislature returns from recess in January 2010.
At the first hearing for AB 373 we want the Legislature and the Governor to see a flood of letters and to know that tens-of- thousands of CRPA and NRA members are demanding immediate action to begin the process to pass AB 373.
To accomplish this, we have attached a form letter for your use in sending a strong and loud message to the Legislature and the Governor. Please get the word out about this letter campaign. Copy and distribute this letter far and wide. Send it to gun clubs and hand it out at gun shows, gun stores and to fellow firearms owners – give a copy to everyone.
Letters are to be mailed to the CRPA office; the address is listed on the bottom of the attached form letter. All letters received will be personally delivered to the Capitol by CRPA's lobbyist.
It only takes a few moments to complete the bottom portion of the letter and send it to CRPA. Help us restore your right to purchase ammunition without excessive government intrusion.
Please contact the CRPA office if you have any questions (714-992-2772). To join CRPA and NRA, please call (800-305-2772).

LETTER IN SUPPORT OF ASSEMBLY BILL 373
REPEAL AB 962 – SUPPORT AB 373!
As a resident of the State of California, I hereby voice my strongest opposition to the passage of Assembly Bill 962 (Deleon) [Restrictions on ammunition sales] by the California Legislature and Governor in 2009.
This action was an attack on common sense and an insult to law-abiding firearms owners throughout the state. Furthermore, AB 962, taking effect on February 1, 2011, mandates individuals purchasing ammunition to be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale and outlaws mail-order ammunition purchases. AB 962 also requires dealers to maintain these records for at least five years and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice. As an additional burden, ammunition retailers are also required to store ammunition away from purchasers.
This scheme to register firearms owners, as if they were common criminals, must not be allowed to be implemented! Therefore, I respectfully urge the passage of Assembly Bill 373 (Hagman) [Repeal of AB 962].
If passed, AB 373 would return a level of sanity to the issue of obtaining firearms ammunition by law-abiding citizens. Since it is well-known that most criminals don't purchase their firearms and ammunition from lawful sources, AB 373 would allow our already over burdened law enforcement agencies to focus on catching criminals instead of turning them into paperchasing clerks attempting to implement the ill-advised scheme that is AB 962.
It is for these reasons, and many more, that I must respectfully, but strongly, urge legislative support for Assembly Bill 373.
