Stop California Governor Jerry Brown From Signing Anti-Gun Bills into Law!

Messages Sent So Far

Yesterday, we sounded the alarm on the draconian gun control bills the California Legislature just passed in our article titled, "SB 374: Assault Weapons Ban Passes, California Legislature Sends Bill to Governors Desk." Today, we are going to analyze these bills and see what exactly they mean to us.

First, we must understand there is still time to stop these bills from becoming law. We implore you to take action NOW! Call California Governor Jerry Brown in addition to emailing and faxing him. Tell him NOT to sign these bills. Do not remain idle. Everyone from all 50 states needs to take part in this effort.

First it was New York, then it was Colorado. Now it is California, tomorrow it will be your state if you continue to remain silent. Please share this with your family and friends! Call California Governor Jerry Brown and tell him to not sign these bills!

Website: Governor Jerry Brown - Phone: (916) 445-2841 - Fax: (916) 558-3160

The following bills passed both the California State Assembly and Senate: SB374, SB567, SB683, SB755 and AB170. With that said let us now analyze these bills.

Second Amendment: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." - Amendment II

SB-374 Firearms: assault weapons - California Legislature
SB374 covers a verity of topics. Let us start with the definitions for a magazine which are as follows.

"(1) ?Detachable magazine? means an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm without disassembly of the firearm action.
(2) ?Fixed magazine? means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action."
This bill now defines an assault weapon as follows.

"This bill would, instead, classify a semiautomatic centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept no more than 10 rounds as an assault weapon. The bill would require a person who, between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2013, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, and who, on or after January 1, 2014, possesses that firearm, to register the firearm by July 1, 2015."

I am a proud American who enjoys the freedoms this country has given us and the opportunity to succeed in the American dream. I realize there's got to be some regulations on certain issues that are for the better good of the people. However things are getting scary in all areas of our lives(economic, foreign affairs, government). What ever happened to "common sense" laws and regulations that most folks agree on. Why does politics play this ridiculous role in forcing there view and law, why not just come to agreement between both parties that's acceptable for All . I'm a younger man who is worried what the country will look like for my children and I've heard this from countless peers. Regarding these gun laws and regulations, some make sense. Most do not and its terrible that u guys r trying to enforce something that will only affect "LAW ABBIDING CITIZENS". The people who respect the country and its laws! NOT the criminals who will still rob,kill,terrorize,etc the communities they live in. Shooting guns has become a very fun hobby with my family in recent years and yes, it doesn't hurt to be able to protect my family if someone try's to come into my home to do any harm to us. Mr. brown, please put aside your political stance and just abide by what the constitution reads. You are only helping bad people do more bad things..God bless us all
