View Full Version : I called Governor on AB 2714 & SB 59 today

09-08-2006, 9:59 AM
I just got off the phone with the Governor's office IRT SB 2714 and SB 59 asking him to Veto both.

Took about 8 minutes to get through the menu and "Please hold through the silence" messages. A young lady came and took my info, didn't ask for name or where from.

I did ask her why there was no separate menu option for these 2 bills and she said they only put up the ones generating the most traffic. Not her exact words, but close.
I asked her if they were on his desk for signing or veto and yes they are ready for signature.

Best start calling and emailing and faxing.

I called in.

Am I mising something? What about AB 2728, that's on his desk too? :(

09-08-2006, 1:13 PM
2728 is our wolf in sheep's clothing...

09-08-2006, 1:23 PM
Yes, the AB 2728 bill is also on his desk.

I don't know what to make of that one and the NRA Member Council has a hyphen in place of support or oppose.

I'd like to have something more definitive but there has been much debate here regarding the pros and cons of this bill.

I'm leaning towards what someone else posted saying that since the Attorney General/DOJ put it up I'm suspicious. The NRA also seems to be scratching their heads.

I'd think the Governor would veto it just because it doesn't really say anything
Flip a coin I reckon.

Does Schwarzenegger's office also have a direct email address (and not a web address)?

I wouldn't mind using that one as well. AB 2714 is just plain wrong!

09-08-2006, 1:46 PM
The NRA isn't scratching its head, its just not commenting. Think that through.

Quick Question, is Ahnold the govenator pro-gun or anti-gun. Its not like its a councilmember. The govenor will veto or sign what he believes either way.

09-08-2006, 5:06 PM
The governor will veto or sign what he believes either way.

Maybe true however, we ought to give him our inputs either way. I wouldn't want him to say at a later date:

"Da gun people, they never told me what to do, so I just tink back to da old country and sign my name, so be it."

Its our Republic, we should treat it that way.

The thread over on Thehighroad.org has a C&R type email. You can type up anything to oppose the bills. Just a quick "Please veto AB 2714" is sufficient for a count. Same with SB 59.

If you want to be a bit more elaborate, you can cut and paste justifications from the NRA Member Councils oppostion.
AB 2714

This bill would provide, subject to exceptions, that no ammunition or reloaded ammunition may be delivered pursuant to a retail transaction unless the purchaser personally presents bona fide evidence of his or her identity and age, as specified, to the seller of the ammunition and that the delivery container contain specified language. Violation of these provisions would be an offense punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for a term not to exceed 6 months, or by a fine not to exceed $1,000, or by both imprisonment and that fine, with increased penalties for 2nd or subsequent violations. The bill would provide that it does not apply to ammunition or reloaded ammunition that is rimfire ammunition.
SB 59

Existing law generally regulates the possession of firearms. This bill would make it an infraction for any person whose handgun is stolen or irretrievably lost to fail, within 5 working days after his or her discovery or knowledge of, or within 5 working days after the date he or she should reasonably have known of, the theft of or loss, to report the theft or loss to a local law enforcement agency of the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred or in which the person resides. The bill would require specified notices of this requirement to persons acquiring handguns after July 1, 2007, as specified.

The bill would provide that local governments are not prohibited from enacting ordinances imposing reporting requirements that are more strict than those specified in the bill.

Take anything from there or use your own thoughts to register opposition.

Call, email and FAX.

I keep getting a busy signal-I guess the switchboard is tied up...

Apparently there is not yet enough traffic to warrant putting these on the menu tree.

Burn up the fax, your tax dollars paid for the ink and paper.
