For those of you who are unaware, this is about AB962, a mail order ammo ban, so please call and oppose.

Step 1: Call the number in the subject
Step 2: Press 1 for English.
Step 3: Press 2 for commenting on a bill on the Governor’s desk
Step 4: Press 2 for AB962
Step 5: Press 2 for Oppose
Step 6: Repeat as necessary (preferably once or twice a day).

Thanks,

Scott

Carry on

This is Freaking GREAT!!!! I called several times and it works. You get a busy signal every once in a while but keep calling guys. If you dont say anything they will take it away from us. Kudo's to racer x 123 for posting it

I posted this in another thread but I dont think everyone frequents all the threads on CalGuns. So I will post it again since I feel it is extremely important.


http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=5083


Assembly Bill 962 is currently awaiting action in the Senate. Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require that purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be kept in dealers' records and subject to inspection by the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

Senate Bill 585 is awaiting consideration by the full Assembly. SB585, introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace. In short, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California.

Bump because this is FREAKING IMPORTANT. Call from your home, work, cell, spouses cell, friends phones, any phone you can get ahold of. It seems easier to get through after business hours. It takes seconds. Do it.

Have a geek friend at Michigan Tech University.

He owed me a favor so he set up a program to call the number, with set delays and entries so it will oppose AB962, and repeat the cycle every 5 minutes until he tells it to stop. It's running 24/7 to oppose AB962, so 288 calls per day opposing the bill.

I have written to the author of the ammo bill numerous times and no response. I have written Arnold numerous times and no response, I have called. I have written my reps here in OC, they are Repubs, no response. Who do they work for , it surely isn't me.
