Dear Governor Schwarzenegger,
Two anti-gun bills AB962 and SB5 were passed by the legislature and are now on your Desk.
If you don't veto them, by default, they become law.
AB962 (DeLeon) AMMUNITION SALES RESTRICTIONS
This bill would require individuals purchasing ammunition to be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale, mandates that dealers keep these records and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice. Ammunition retailers would also have to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. Finally, mail order ammunition sales are prohibited under AB962. Over twenty years ago, Congress abolished similar requirements because ammunition sales records were found to be useless for solving crimes. AB962 is a dire threat to our Second Amendment rights in the Golden State.
More than fifteen County Sheriffs officially oppose AB962. I stand with law-enforcement.
SB585 (Leno) â€“ GUN SHOW BAN
This bill would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Cow Palace and would thereby make a violation of that prohibition a misdemeanor. This bill would ban having a gun show at the Cow Palace, which is a state owned facility in the South San Francisco area. If it passes, it will likely be expanded to ban gun shows on any public property, such as fairgrounds, throughout the State. It is a major attack on the right of sportsmen and other firearms owners to assemble, communicate with each other, and to purchase new, used and collectible firearms, accessories and sporting supplies.
Facts regarding SB585:
Â· Law enforcement fears that the lack of the gun show would drive firearms sales underground due to the lack of a the gun show as a regulated location for such sales to take place.
Â· The unfair lack of access to this publicly-owned venue restricts the First Amendment Rights of many thousands of attendees who have done nothing wrong and should not have to endure such censorship.
The gun show promoters, including Crossroads of the West (who produce the show at the Cow Palace) worked with law enforcement, the state fair board and others, in support of AB295 several years ago. AB295 provided protections, including event operation under the strict scrutiny of law enforcement, at all gun shows in the state.
Gun show promoters in California, including Crossroads of the West, have a close working relationship with law enforcement agencies (at all levels) due to the nature of cooperation that exists at gun shows, such as the one at the Cow Palace.
California has the toughest gun show laws of any state in the nation. Currently, California's gun shows are monitored by local, state, and federal enforcement agencies and all firearms transactions are required to be processed by dealers who possess federal, state, and local licenses.
Buying a firearm at a gun show is no different than going to a firearms dealer's store. All firearms transactions occur only after a comprehensive background check that includes a 10-day waiting period before a firearm can be delivered to the new owner. SB585 is an attempt by anti-firearms rights activists to find more creative ways to discourage people from owning firearms! Like most such bills, it would have no impact on criminals, just on lawful individuals!
Both of these bills infringe on Right to Bear Arms. Don't whimp out on law abiding citizens. Stand up to those Special interest groups whom wish to ruin the rights guaranteed by the constitution.
Do your job to represent the majority of Americans in California VETO AB962 ~&~ SB5 !
VETO THEM BOTH!
Thank you, Jeff O
