Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Just as vote-by-mail ballots are about to land in mailboxes, the Firearms Policy Coalition is releasing their legislative report card for the 2015 legislative session.
Each legislator is graded based on how they handled priority legislation. Actions such as voting record, authorship and co-authorship of bills were included in the analysis of their records.
The highest scores in the California State Legislature belong to Republican Assembly members James Gallagher and Melissa Melendez, as well as Republican Senator Tom Berryhill, who all scored an A+ grade—and have been labeled Defenders of Liberty; a distinction that not only demands a stellar voting record, but also requires the member to actually author or co-author a pro-gun bill.
Other notables include top scoring Democrats Senator Richard Roth who received an
“A” and Assembly member Jim Frazier with a “B”.
In contrast, Senator Hannah Beth Jackson, and Assembly member Nora Campos bottomed out their respective houses scoring the lowest grade of “F-” and could be considered the most committed anti-gun owner and anti-gun rights Members of the Legislature.
