Sacramento, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- Unsurprisingly, the Brady Campaign is strongly backing two very extreme anti-rights bills, SB 53 (Senator Kevin de León's Orwellian ammunition purchase and sales restrictions) and SB 755 (Senator Lois Wolk's outrageous expansion of those categorized as “prohibited persons” who can't possess or acquire guns or ammunition).
They're asking their supporters to call, write, and fax the Legislature — running a drill on our rights –– but we can make sure to give the Legislature something else to consider by sending letters using FPC's built-in Take Action tools, sending faxes, and keeping the phones ringing off the hook Monday and Tuesday.
Don't just take my word for it. Here's what Dallas Stout, President of the California Brady Campaign Chapters, had to say about SB 53 and SB 755 just yesterday in an email to their contacts:
“The California State Assembly is scheduled to begin its Independence Day recess soon. However, before lawmakers leave Sacramento for the holiday, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will vote on two key LIFE Act (Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement Act) bills — SB 53 and SB 755. These bills are crucial to preventing gun violence and creating a safer California. SB 53 and SB 755 have already passed the Senate and are ready to move forward. But the Assembly Public Safety Committee members need to hear from you.”
Make no mistake: both SB 53 and SB 755 are key parts of the gun control movement's 3-step plan to destroy the Second Amendment and undermine your fundamental civil rights: 1) Compile a database of gun and ammunition owners; 2) Expand the classes of prohibited people/guns/ammunition/etc.; 3) Disarm by force. And now the CA DOJ has $24 Million of YOUR MONEY to pay for step 3 (thanks to SB 140)… They're looking to round out steps 1 and 2 in SB 53 and SB 755 – DON'T SIT BACK AND LET THIS HAPPEN!
Bottom line: GET LOUD AND GET TO WORK OPPOSING THESE BILLS! Don't wait for the other guy to stand up for YOUR RIGHTS. Take this personally and let's make Brady wish they had the numbers of passionate citizen activists that we do.
