Just found this in my mail, will stick it here.

Let's keep calling (see #s below) and make sure the bill dies the death it deserves.

This bill is part of the 'culture wars' - attacks on our venues attacks our rights by attrition.

This bill has been granted "reconsideration" and can be voted on again. Please make sure to ask the Senators to continue to oppose AB2948.

Continue to contact the members of the Senate and urge a NO vote on AB 2948.

copy of e-mail i sent to my state senator and i'm going to follow up with a phone call:

Dear State Senator Simitian,

I am writing to you as a voting constituent who does not belong to the NRA or the Republican party. I want you to know that I OPPOSE AB 2948 regarding firearms sales at the Cow Palace.

I am a legal owner of firearms and make many purchases at the Cow Palace. Given that existing law already regulates the transfer of firearms, I am puzzled as to why this unnecessary legislation is taking up time and money that could be well spent on more worthwhile endeavors.

I urge you to oppose AB 2948 and look forward to your response. Thank you.
