California – -(Ammoland.com)- That’s right – if you think things couldn’t get any worse in California, Los Angeles Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) just introduced a bill that would outlaw any organization from raffling firearms.
AB 3199 would prohibit an authorized raffle conducted by eligible organizations (which Gun Owners of California and many like-minded groups are) from offering a firearm as a “prize.”
This is clearly a case where Democrats are doing everything they can to defund – and to eliminate organized opposition to their anti-gun policies.
Regardless of their intent, this will have no bearing whatsoever on crime in California. It is a punitive measure aimed directly at the thousands upon thousands of grassroots individuals who are members of organizations dedicated to the protection of the 2nd Amendment, hunting, firearms safety and training.
For years, Gun Owners of California has conducted fundraising raffles – which are duly registered with the Department of Justice – without incident.
