Your senator Feinstein was just now on Fox News in an exchange between her and Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and she was downright nasty with him (3:30pm EDT). According to her we ‘don’t need Bazookas or any other high powered weapons”. There are some 2000 weapons exempted (So how can she discriminate between weapons that are now legal?). I notice that the CA legislature now plans to ban .22 rifles with detachable magazines, or fixed with more than 10 rounds (many pump and lever rifles). This is the first time I have seen an effort to include .22 rimfire weapons… Read more »

I have already contacted my representatives I also told each one that I spent over $225 on hunting and fishing licenses and tags in Ca,I also stated I refuse to hunt or fish in the state of Ca,instead I will spend my money in a state that respects my rights and the second amendment


Talk about a bunch of scum with “mental issues” ! HBH


One way to contact these clowns is to use a zip code in their district as this seems to be the “screener” that is used to “allow” your comments to go through or not. I’ve used this method with the fed legislators. Instead of getting the “thanks for your comment but we only respond to constituents in our district” letter/email, I get actual responses from the clowns. Everything else I put on is correct except the zip code. Even if I’m in another state from the one they “represent”. And I use the term “represent” rather loosely.
