The NRA has full-time legislative advocates in its Sacramento office fighting ill-conceived gun ban proposals. NRA coordinates a statewide campaign to fight ill-conceived local gun bans and regulations. And NRA has been litigating cases in California courts to promote the right to self-defense and the Second Amendment for many years. NRA’s California legal team continues to work pro-actively to strike down ill-conceived gun control laws and ordinances, and to protect the Second Amendment rights of California firearms owners.

It is really sad to see one of our own 50 turn to and embrace communistic (devilcrat ideoligy so much it makes a real American sick to my stomach . Maybe it’s time for the big one, earthquake that is . It would send the entire state further west and closer to the communist regimes they seem to be adoring so much as to want to emulate and join! I for one would not miss them at all? And the good old USA would be better off without their cancer! Now if we could only arrange for the parasites of… Read more »

These people have to be voted into office the people of California must get together and get them out of office there own studies show that these laws have no effect on criminals just punish the law abiding people.


Do not worry men, The next earth quake will take care of california. Nevada will become the state next to the ocean. You can bet on that.


How can we sit back and be happy with just “calling representatives and urging them to…?” Wow! The American people had better STAND UP NOW and demand no more gun control!!! The treasonous acts politicians have committed against us are so much worse today than what King George did to us in the late 1700’s. Enough is enough! We all know it’s coming to a physical confrontation between the American people and the American thuggish govt! This is absolutely ludicrous!!! We had better get off our butts and get busy with restoring this Republic while we still have even the… Read more »


For the protection of the rest of the country lock down the California border. History continues to show that where Californians run to the ultimately install the same insane laws and politics they ran from. They are universally hated all over the US for this very reason. KEEP them locked down in California make them live in the mess of their own creating.


I am a disabled Vet and on a fixed income so moving is out of the question. One of four things will happen in Kalaforthem in the next few years. Gun owners with money will leave the state and the state will declare bankruptcy because it will not have enough people to over tax. Gun owners will just do as they have done for the last thirty years just roll over and give up their rights. Third gun owners will be fed up and blood will be in the streets when the state comes to take them. I am praying… Read more »


Hey Roy, I really resent that statement about Kommiefornia Republicans spreading their cheeks for the DemocRATS! I mean it’s obvious you don’t understand the concept of being outnubbered 10 to 1. I don’t care how much it might be desired to kick a lot of these little tyrants out of office, but if you don’t have the votes, you don’t have the votes! I don’t like it at all, but until a lot of these booger eatin’ air-headed knuckleheads wake up and stop sniffing unicorn farts, we’re stuck with the mini-nazis.


It’s no surprise! Cali has been leading the way towards communism for a long time now and the gun owners in that state just let it happen… That’s what you idiots get for compromising with the gun-grabbers to begin with…
Don’t come to my state and turn it into another Cali like you did with Colorado!
Keep in that filth you’ve created!


Robert sounds like you need to get the frack out of Kalifornia sounds like Nazi Germany or Communist Russia!! If this is where your at Im sorry that this has happened and the Infestation in the Legislating body their. All those bans and draconian laws do nothing but infringe on law abiding citizens giving the criminals which we all know do notfollow the law the upper hand. Im sure the criminals, low lifes, dirtbags are applauding these MORONS who are introducing and passing these STUPID LAWS like the criminals are just gonna use 10 rd mags huh?? And register their… Read more »
