Assembly Bill 1663 would expand the classification of assault weapons to include the M1 Carbine, Ruger Mini-14 and more…
- This bill would expand the reach of California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” to ALL semi-automatic center-fire rifles with detachable magazines, regardless of if they are equipped with a “bullet button” or magazine locking device.
- It would BAN your family’s heirloom rifles from WWII through the Vietnam War.
- It would BAN Ruger’s Mini-14 ranch rifles and the venerable M1A— because they have a detachable magazine.
We are talking about Assembly Bill 1663, authored by California Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and sponsored by gun-grabbing Attorney General Kamala Harris.
Other recent attempts to expand California’s “assault weapons” ban failed passage in the Legislature or were vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown, thanks in part to a massive outpouring of opposition from the gun rights community.
Those previous measures pale in comparison, however, to AB 1663, which would ban the previously mentioned common rifles, as well as the M1 Carbine.
Yes, you read that right. They are coming after the most collected and cherished rifles, and classifying them as “assault weapons.”
In fact, just last week thousands of M1 Carbines were distributed to civilians by the U.S. Goverment through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).
But now, Assemblymember Chiu knows better than the folks running the CMP and wants to classify any M1 Carbine as an “Assault Weapon,” forcing their owners to jump through even more hoops.
You can help us stop this assault on your rights TODAY. Take a minute to fill out our petition and let your voice be heard. We need you to tell Sacramento politicians ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
