DOJ handgun roster shrinking again…
California -(AmmoLand.com)- Every year on January 1, all California-approved handguns come up for renewal on California’s Roster of “not unsafe” handguns.
And every year we see our Second Amendment rights being held hostage by anti-gun Attorney General Kamala Harris and her California Department of Justice. Unless DOJ lets a handgun back on the Roster — or if a manufacturer forgets to pay the $200 Roster renewal fee on time — perfectly safe and State-tested handguns “magically” become “unsafe” overnight.
This year alone, dozens of handguns were removed from the Roster because of unconstitutional laws and DOJ’s red tape. Without a gun rights victory in our critically-important Second Amendment lawsuit Peña v. Lindley, DOJ will no doubt administratively strangle your access to constitutionally-protect safe, modern handguns and shrink the Roster into oblivion.
Help us STRIKE DOWN the Handgun Roster & Microstamping
For years now, DOJ has required handgun manufacturers to attest — under penalty of perjury — to the specifics of their entire supply chain in a bureaucratic move to force handguns off the roster….and out of your hands.
And if a manufacturer makes even a small improvement to a handgun for safety, reliability, or as a response to customer feedback, the DOJ kicks it off the Roster.
Worse, thanks to California’s “microstamping” requirement — a legal mandate to implement a non-existent technology — the de-listed handguns can never be re-listed on the Roster even if they pass the State’s rigorous safety tests.
Peña v. Lindley is the ONLY Second Amendment challenge to California’s unconstitutional handgun Roster laws AND microstamping requirements.
And if you ever want to buy popular handguns like Glock’s Generation 4 models or Springfield Armory’s “XD-S” series from a California retailer, our Peña v. Lindley case needs your support.
Support the Peña v. Lindley lawsuit
We are fully committed to eliminating California’s unconstitutional handgun lawseven if that means going to the U.S. Supreme Court. And Peña v. Lindley is up on appeal to the Ninth Circuit with a hearing expected to be scheduled sometime this year.
But gun rights lawsuits are expensive and we simply can’t win back your Second Amendment rights without your help.
