California Democrats Intro Bill To Stop 2Nd Amendment Groups From Raising Money

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.

Gun Owners of California will be joining with other groups to defeat this proposal and we need your help. Click here to find out who represents you in the Assembly, and make your opposition known.

Also, contact Assemblyman Chris Holden by calling (916) 319-2041 at the Capitol or his district office at (909) 624-7876.

Be armed. Be informed. Join Gun Owners of California.

Public notice to all Californians flee the state: You will be flee to a free state, we would like it to remain so. Please learn your lesson with California. In that regard, do not agree with the fallacy of gun control on any terms, We do not want anymore government funded programs or or taxes increase. Be smart and please purchase a local home at market value and put the rest of the money you received from selling your home into a retirement fund. Remember the locals citizens of the free state were there first. It is your responsibility to… Read more »

Strange, but I had thought that the ballot, voting in elections held in this country was, for some reason, restricted to citizens of this country. I guess that California, among some other locales is one of those “special cases” one hears about. If I may make so bold, how come this seeming anomaly?

I’ll try again since my original post hasn’t been posted: The California system is corrupt. The democrats ensure re-election by doling out entitlements. They expand their voter base with more and more benefits/entitlements for illegal aliens. Their oath of office means NOTHING! This allows them to continue to undermine basic freedoms. Activists Justices on the California Supreme Court and the 9th Circuit Court of appeals are just as complicit. When a court decision favors pro 2A, they call for a redo (en banc). There is always an “en banc” review when a decision favors pro 2A. The reverse never occurs.… Read more »

Actually it is the illegals who are voting the Democrat party line. That’s why they have Some districts voting at 110% or more of eligible voters

Wouldn’t that be an attack on their 1st Amendment???? I spoke with a person the other day who said I shouldn’t want to have a gun, I replied by telling him he should go buy a gun that day. He replied , “No I won’t.” then I asked what gives you the right of choice but I am not entitled to my opinion or choice ? Oh, I was a former LEO and took an Oath.

Comment…I for the life of me cannot see why any and all companies having to do with firearms would stay in commiefornia (80% Arms are you listening ?) I can purchase the same merchandise in Florida .

It’s OK for the anti gun types to use public time and apparatus for their fund raising, right?

@Alan, no but we should study the methods of our enemies and use their techniques to our advantage.

Yes, that is so. Of course, problems arise from the fact that mass media does not present an honest picture.

@Steve, That’s Excremento! Leave the arms at home. Go to a car lot, take a car for a test drive, park in front of the legislature, get out and throw away the key. Leave the sales man standing there. Put your protest sign on the windshield. Then go home.

What needs to happen is that ALL Gun makers And ALL gun related products companies need to refuse to sell any of their products to ANYONE in California.

I would advise all Kalifornia gun owners to exit that state with their arms while they still can. There is no chance to overturn these draconian measures. The ball is rolling downhill and will nt stop until it smashes the gun owners. Meanwhile criminals are let go by Kalifornia’s idiot officials.It is your own fault for keeping these goons in office.

Funny you should say that.
I work at Honor Defense and a California company called to solicit our business yesterday.
Unfortunately, since our pistols are not welcome there, we did not welcome this companies’ products for us.

Thank you….leaving town is not the best responce…I sent Brown an email, which is the least one can do…we must maintain our forceful political presence in the hope that it will prevail and if not then to implement options. Never to relent. Never to negotiate our political presence; rather, to maintain currently and constantly. Vigilance is necessary for our Republic to survive.

Amen to that White Rose! We will prevail because we have greater ones to fight for us – mainly our Lord and his Army! Let’s keep up the good fight and press in. We are learning the enemies ways and we will defeat them!
