A friend of mine e-mailed Assemblywoman Diane Harkey regarding AB962 (73rd district) and received this response - it's a good one!:

Dear Scott:



Thank you for taking the time to contact my office regarding our mutual gun
rights in California. First, let me be clear - I am an ardent supporter of
the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms. I do not support AB 962 and will
oppose it in Appropriations Committee.



I believe AB 962 puts more limitations on the rights of legal gun owners.
This bill will do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of criminals or
dangerous people living in our communities. Limiting the transfer or sale
of ammunition to 50 rounds per month, the equivalent of one box of handgun
ammunition, will have a devastating impact on legal firearms retailers.
Average sales volumes regularly exceed the proposed limit, which would
subject the majority of firearms business owners to a new set of
bureaucratic rules and regulations regarding licensure, storage and sale
procedures. This would force many small businesses that rely on ammunition
sales as their primary revenue to incur additional costs in order to comply
with the provisions of AB 962. As one may guess, such costs would
definitely be passed along to the consumer. This burdensome and unnecessary
regulation would drive a sizable number of retailers out of business
altogether.



Further, AB 962 would hinder the ability of law abiding citizens to transfer
ownership of ammunition between private parties such as family members by
requiring individuals to be licensed by the Department of Justice if the
50-round thresholds are exceeded.



This outrageous proposal adds yet another layer of red tape where
appropriate regulation already exists and infringes further upon individual
freedoms of every California citizens' Right to Bear Arms.



I truly appreciate you taking the time to make your voice heard - I stand
with you on this issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff at
(949) 347-7301 if I may be of further service.



Sincerely,



DIANE L. HARKEY

Assemblywoman, 73rd District

If she is your assemblywoman, PLEASE consider supporting her in her next election with your money and/or time.

I'm on my ipod and read the small text too fast and read Diane Feinstein.

Regardless, this is encouraging news!

Why was her party affiliation not mentioned until I pleaded for it twice, in all the earlier posts in this thread (Almost as if OP and follow up posters here thought it would be bad form to tout her party affiliation ?:confused:

Her party affiliation is posted in several other threads about AB962.

She is a Republican. I have met her and had a couple of short discussions with her.

She seems like a very smart lady, and she believes in the 2A.

I voted for her, and I feel like she is helping in the legislature.

Elated and relieved to hear such an encouraging reply. To think that not all the lawmakers are ignorant fools. Hope it all goes well.
