View Full Version : AB 1810 & AB 223, call NOW!!!916.319.2011

I just got a voicemail from NRA and the statement is to call:
916.319.2011 and let Tom know that you oppose both AB 1810 & AB 223.

There is another thread regarding AB1810, but I saw nothing about AB 223, which is to ban all lead in 'sensitive' areas.....which simply gives government the open book to make that decision.

Call now as these are scheduled for 4/28 TOMORROW!!!!!!!

My call said to call Charles Calderon, the Majority Leader. I just did, and then decided to hit all of them per a NRA-ILA alert I received a few days ago. Calling all of them took just over 15 min and was free w/my cell phone.

Below is the email I got a few days ago from the NRA-ILA. EVERY Calgunner, whether a NRA member or not, should sign up for the NRA-ILA email alerts at:


California: Long Gun Registration and Lead Shot Ban be Heard on Wednesday, April 28!
Please Contact the Members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee Today!

On Wednesday, April 28, the Assembly Appropriations Committee will hear Assembly Bill 1810 and Assembly Bill 2223. The committee members need to hear from you today regarding these continued attacks on our Second Amendment rights.

Under AB1810, the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser would be recorded and kept on file by the California Attorney General’s office.

If AB1810 were enacted, violent criminals would continue doing what they do now – obtain firearms through illegal means. This bill would not decrease crime but will rather have disastrous effects on the already financially unstable Golden State. AB1810 would impose additional burdens on California’s taxpayers to maintain the registration system as well as on the state’s licensed firearms dealers, small businesses who already deal with extensive business requirements.

One simply needs to look at Canada, a nation with draconian firearms registration, to see the results – billions in cumulative administrative costs, annual cost overruns, no clear substantiation of public safety benefits, unjust prosecution, and a bureaucratic complexity that daunts those willing to comply. Ironically, California is considering a new registration scheme as Canada is considering doing away with its system.

AB2223 would outlaw the use of lead shot when shooting or hunting in state-run wildlife management areas. There is no scientific evidence justifying this proposed ban. It is intended only to discourage hunting in California and that is why the Humane Society of the United States is in full support.

AB1810 and AB2223 are very serious threats to the rights of California’s law-abiding gun owners and must be defeated.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee and strongly voice your opposition to AB1810, and AB2223. Contact information can be found below. Also, please contact your Assembly Member in opposition to these bills. Their contact information can be found here.

If you want a shot at actually getting your opinion to count call the committee directly. On the last go round with the Public Safety Committee the official count against this stupid bill was....5 private citizens
Calling emailing and faxing committee members may make you feel good but if they are voting the other way they will never disclose your opinion.

Call the Committee phone# and tell them to count you as a private citizen against this nonsense.
