-------------------------------------------------
California NRA Members' Councils
The California Grassroots Gun-Rights Organization

Working in close association with NRA's top staff in
the Golden State, the California NRA Members' Councils
are NRA's "Army on the Ground". This 100% volunteer
state-wide network stands ready day or night to respond
to the needs of NRA to further gun-owner interests
at all levels of government. No other group or
association has the membership to support such a
necessary effort, employing consistent, experienced
and reliable volunteers on a massive scale throughout
the state.

Have you joined your local NRA Members' Council yet?

I was just starting to doubt my NRA membership was worth it! No more doubts.

Where do we sign up to provide help if needed?

It's taken the NRA a long time to act here in California, but, now we're starting to see something. I'll be watching these bills closely with optimism.

That form uses your zip code to identify your local NRA Members' Council - they have monthly meetings in over 25 locations all across California!

The assault weapon bill still gives the DOJ total control over who they issue permits to.

This isn't a step forward, but at least it's not a step back. There's no progression in that bill at all, we still won't be able to buy them because the DOJ doesn't want us to. They won't issue any permits, because they don't issue permits now.

The only way we are going to fix it is to remove the laws the DOJ uses to bite us with.

Yes, but it will permit the inheritance of registered assault weapons. That's a huge step towards progress.

Many people here, including myself, would like to see our collections passed on to our children.

It will also never make it past the Public Safety Committee.

I'm, frankly, surprised by this... the NRA backing one sure loser, one almost-sure loser, and one probably-sure loser that's meaningless if it passes. This might be a good sign. But reform of our gun laws is not going to come from the Legislature as long as it exists in its current form. The initiative process is the only way we have a chance to see changes made.

I'm with jnojr on this one. The bills don't seem very impressive, either in substance or probability of passing. I'm wondering of the NRA has a strategy here or is just flinging sh*t against the wall to see if any sticks?

In addition, the WORKER'S PROTECTION - AB 1912 bill seems to have been addressed recently in a OK case, with a outcome unfavorable to the NRA's stance. (http://www.occupationalhazards.com/articles/14725)I can't say I support the NRA on this one.

These bills are all good. The antigun people didn't pass their bans the first time they tried, but eventually they got their laws through. I see these bills as the first step to turning backt the red tide. You are right the bills have little chance of getting past those wacko liberals lead by Mark Leno in the Public Safety Committee, but he won't always be the chair of that committee. We should start now and keep hammering at the gun grabbers, just like they started in the 1980's to take away our 2nd A. rights.
