NSSF Action Alert! Urge California Gov. Jerry Brown to Veto Gun Control Bills

(Editor’s note: The following is an action alert from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association.  Californians once again find their backs against the wall as anti-gunners in the legislature have succeeded in passing even more legislation aimed at curtailing the 2A rights of law-abiding citizens.  While it may be a Hail Mary at this point, NSSF is urging residents to contact Gov. Jerry Brown ASAP and tell him to veto these four bills: SB 221, SB 1100, SB 1177, SB 1487.  See details and contact information below.)

The California Legislature adjourned last week for the year, but before adjournment, they approved a number of bills that would create more gun control in the state and attack hunting rights. NSSF worked tirelessly at the California State Capitol this session, but our work is not over and we need your help.

Please contact Gov. Jerry Brown immediately and respectfully request that he veto the following bills:

SB 221: This bill would prohibit gun shows at the Cow Palace by making the lawful sale of firearms and ammunition illegal there. There is no valid reason why firearms and ammunition sales at gun shows held there should be stopped as the shows are safe, secure and conducted lawfully. The Department of Finance has weighed in on this bill and is opposed. It states that gun shows produce ± 13 percent of the Cow Palace’s net revenue; thus banning gun shows would reduce its ability to generate essential revenue for continued fair operations.

SB 1100: This bill would raise the minimum age from 18 to 21 years old to purchase any firearm with limited exceptions.

SB 1177: This bill would, with few exceptions, would prohibit someone from purchasing more than one firearm in a 30-day period.

SB 1487: The so-called “Iconic African Species Protection Act” would prohibit the importation, and possession in some instances, of certain, legally-taken, African species.

There is no evidence that such an age limit or a limit on gun purchases to one per month would have an impact on the criminal misuse of firearms. These bills will do nothing to increase public safety, or in the case of SB 1487 improve conservation efforts.

Gov. Brown has until September 30 to either sign or veto these bills. Please contact Gov. Brown immediately and respectfully urge him to VETO SB 221, SB 1100, SB 1177, and SB 1487. Contact information can be found below.

    Liberals know a civil war is coming . That’s why they are so incensed with disarming is. Yet they support violent communist groups like ANTIFA who want nothing more than to bash our heads in and destroy out Constitution & American way of life . Than replacing it with Stalinist rule .

    I have considered corresponding with most elected representatives here in the Democratic People’s Republic of Kalifornia a waste of time for decades. They do not represent me, and will not entertain reasoned argument. Doubly so now that Governor Clown is on his way out the door.

    I spent my first 60 years in Cali. I was there because of better wages and more work. As soon as I retired, I left the Nanny state for a neighboring state with few gun controls. I have never looked back and feel sorry for my firearms friends. There is no turning back in Cali concerning gun control, it is a done deal. The best thing to do is leave and let those who stay, give up their freedoms for a fake belief in safety.

    Please veto all the current gun bills submitted to you for approval. They do nothing to assure safety and only restrict law abiding citizens for no reason other than to make a politician look like they are passing bill for votes on the far left of the voters in our state.
