You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. - Charles Austin Beard

Now Is The Time To Stand Up for 2nd Amendment

Now Is The Time To Stand Up for 2nd Amendment

Below are three bills that passed the State Assembly (over my objections in committee and on the floor). These bills are now awaiting action in the State Senate. While the Senate is on a break, find your State Senator and tell them to vote for freedom and against these three bills.

AB1934 seeks to punish citizens for engaging in the legal act of openly carrying an unloaded handgun. If California had a reasonable concealed carry law that was consistent and fair there would be no need for citizens to carry a gun in open.

AB2223 seeks to outlaw the use of lead shot when shooting or hunting in state-run wildlife management areas. Anti-hunting groups want to make it harder to hunt and this bill would do it.

AB1810 seeks to establish a Canadian style registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns. Under AB1810 require the Attorney General to keep the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser on file. If only the British had such a list!
