Editor’s Note: The following is a news alert from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association.  In a nutshell, it’s do or die time for California gun owners!  If they fail to contact Gov. Brown and voice their opposition to this latest assault on their 2A rights, they may lose what little 2A rights they have left.  See the list of bills below.

The California Legislature chose to disregard legislative process and procedure, sending a package of gun control bills to Gov. Jerry Brown earlier today. Anti-gun Assemblymembers and Senators have denied Californians the right and time to provide their input.

Having failed to promote his failed anti-gun agenda throughout the country, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg turned his sights to California, spending large sums of money to promote his anti-Constitutional ideas.

The bills listed below will further infringe on the constitutional rights of law-abiding Californians, making it more difficult to legally purchase firearms and ammunition. Make no mistake about it, this is not about public safety, rather self-promotion and interests.

  • AB 1135 (Levine) Firearms: assault weapons – Expand the definition of assault weapons based on whether a semiautomatic firearm has a detachable magazine, banning thousands of popular firearms
  • AB 1511 (Santiago) Firearms: lending – Make it illegal to loan a firearm to a person who is personally known to you (except for family members with restrictions)
  • AB 1673 (Gipson) Firearms: unfinished frame or receiver –  Expand the definition of a firearm to partially finished frames and receivers (no definition of what this means) and require their registration
  • AB 1674 (Santiago) Firearms: transfers – Make it illegal to buy or receive more than one firearm in any 30 day period
  • AB 1695 (Bonta) Firearms: false reports –  Expand the definition of a firearm to partially finished frames and receivers (no definition of what this means) and require their registration
  • SB 880 (Hall) Firearms: assault weapons – Expand the definition of assault weapons based on whether a semiautomatic firearm has a detachable magazine, banning thousands of popular firearms
  • SB 894 (Jackson) Firearms: lost or stolen: reports – Make it a crime not to report lost and stolen firearms to law enforcement
  • SB 1235 (de Leon) Ammunition –  Require authorization to buy ammunition and track what and how much ammunition each person buys, creating a database of ammunition purchasers
  • SB 1446 (Hancock) Firearms: magazine capacity – Make it illegal to possess magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds no matter how long a person has owned them

It is critical that you contact Gov. Brown IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge him to VETO all of these anti-gun bills. Let him know that you object to the Legislature’s denial of your right to voice your input on each of these measures and that you are offended by the Legislature’s disregard for legislative rules and procedural abuse.

Gov. Brown has indicated he will act on these bills by Friday at 11 a.m., prior to leaving the country for his European vacation. Time is of the essence! Contact information for Gov. Brown can be found below.

    Wow, that’s enough illegal Totalitarian anti-2/A laws to disarm several MORE millions of “Shall NOT be infringed American Patriots after they automatically violate these ‘laws’ once they are in place and therefore become criminals subject to permanent gun possession bans! Well, the writing’s on the shithouse, uh…FEMA Camp wall. They’ll never stop. California and New York are test beds infested with poisonous snakes and filthy rats getting ready to unleash total disarmament leverage when They take over again–as Early as the 2018 Midterm elections, and go all out to get these ant–2/A laws in universal application.

    It’s now evident that with the turncoat traitor RINOS that Trump’s so-called Victdory for the 2nd/A by being elected president was only a postponement of the inevitable.

    I warned everyone for years now, that we can only break the back of Tyranny ‘Creep’ by completely repealing, nullifying, enforcing current statutes that prohibit making laws against the Constitution and anything else it takes to kill All gun control laws starting with the mother(fucker) of all gun laws, the 1968 Gun Control Act and then the Brady Bill. This would effectively remove ALL incentive to regulate or control or register, or tax private gun ownership because if you did commit a crime by violating any of these illegal laws, or any other laws or ‘non-laws’ like highly subjective domestic violence or being ‘psychologically disposed to unmanageable ‘ANGER’ (right up their on the next leftist’s Fiat Mandate agenda) It would be Illegal to permanently remove ANY your natural inalienable rights like voting or weapon ownership After you paid your dues and were released from prison back into society.

    Otherwise, we’ll get what we ‘deserve’ by out unwillingness to be proactively diligent, as so many of our Founders advised us preserve our private liberties. And of course, then, we’ll deserve what we get.

    So s all start joining Activist groups and supporting them like The Rutherford group who, unlike the NRA, who actually are fighting police state Nazi take over of the country with lawsuits and political pressure.

    Before it really, really, IS… Too fucking late.

    As other pro 2nd amendment people already have rightfully posted a lot on this website, guns are not the problem. It is the people, very often the mentally ill, that fire them. And I tell you guys that I see California, or let’s say a specific place of it, as one of the many reasons why so many people turn mentally ill, especially young people, and then start to shoot and that the government is doing a huge mistake of pointing at guns.

    It happens right there in San Fernando Valley, northeast of Los Angeles, where 90% (!) of the American adult productions are being made. Today we live in times where quite every household has an affordable flat rate for a 24/7 internet connection and as you surely know parents cannot always be around to take care of their kids, especially not in today’s economical hard times where both parents have to work hard with many overtime to at least get themselves and their children across the line of survival, every one of the years 12 months. So, when the kids are home from school their parents are mostly not. And this is dangerous because the internet is available to quite everyone today and I guess you know already what I will write about now:

    It has already been scientifically proven that all these pictures and videos kids and teenagers see there are dangerous for their mental stability. They see all these heavily steroid filled bodies of men and the heavily operated bodies of women and of course they see what they do with each other. It has nothing to do with the reality but those young people might start to believe this. Adult productions also have become more and more extreme over the last two decades, from what I saw so far, to shock the people and I better don’t go into detail here. But I can tell you that I once believed this crap as well because I was single all my life and during my teenage years really believed that this stuff must be reality, which obviously isn’t. And then you become insecure about yourself, for example about the size of some of your body parts, and some of the young can dramatically become depressed of it, yet they still watch this sick stuff as to them it is a drug that gets them deeper and deeper into trouble, just like Hashish and all this stuff.

    And this is, in my personal opinion, a huge problem and again this already has been proven scientifically. With things like this, as well as with TV advertisements of perfect bodies and posters on the streets, they are not making the overall situation better. It is not the one and only reason but it is something that Mr. Brown should attend to because it all happens under his watch, right there in the San Fernando Valley. But instead of stopping this madness and infringe it, he infringes the 2nd amendment, which shall not be infringed at all. I guess money talks, because the adult industry is too big and too wealthy and it is extremely hard to find a good politician that stands to his beliefs and would never listen to what the industry sais. It’s disturbing that the gun industry is always in a bad light, although it gives people tools with which they can defend themselves, while the adult industry is producing some kind of visible extremism that heavily disturbs the mental stability of the children. And these are the ones I fear to become the next mass shooters and not because they had “easy access to guns”. Many of these were disturbed because of that and felt therefore rejected by girls as well because they believed that they do not fit into the “standards” the adult industry shows them in the net every second of the day, for example:

    Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris (Columbine 1999). I don’t know if they watched the stuff but Dylan felt rejected by girls and Eric wanted to rape them which you can read in their diaries. Tim Kretzschmer (Winnenden, Germany 2009). Police found a lot of BDSM pictures on his computer and he mainly targeted girls on his rampage. Cho Song-Hui (Virginia Tech, 2007). I’ve read that he was a strange guy that photographed knees of female students but I cannot clearly say if he watched too much of the adult industry stuff and turned out to become like this. And last, but surely not least, Elliot Rodger (Isla Vista, California 2014). His motive is, according to murderpedia.com, unclear but it’s believed as a revenge for sexual and social rejection and on his profile on that website you can see a graph he made (2nd photo gallery, the 2nd last picture counted from top).

    So, if Mr. Brown really wants to change something about mass shootings or about violence in general, he should, in my personal opinion, finally infringe the adult industry and its crazy madness it produces today but NOT the 2nd amendment of rights. Thank you.

      I totally agree with Cristian with you more gun Laws don’t Solve the problem. More ccw Laws for the 2nd amendment will help save lives.

    Ahhh… Commie fornia. Land of criminals and victims. When all gun rights are squashed illegal drugs and guns will be the main import. They will definitely see a rise in automatic weapons. Why choose an illegal semi auto when it’s the same as having a full auto? Then they will see an even higher death rate in shootings.
