Over the Fourth of July one could not help think of the brave few men who took on the greatest empire on the Earth in order to be free. It is no coincidence that after gaining independence the Founders went about guaranteeing God given rights from a potentially tyrannical new government.
The Second Amendment and the right to bear arms guaranteed the First amendment and all others.
Recently over the last couple years and just last month the United State Supreme Court has struck down laws that infringed on that right.
Unfortunately, the California State Legislature hasn’t gotten the message about protecting our freedoms.
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
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!
This bill would increase state cost and do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of real criminals.
Now is the time to stand for freedom. Remember what our Founders fought for.
