OK folks, let's do it again!!

This time it's the Assembly, and this time we want them to vote NO on AB809, Feuer's long-gun
registration bill. Relevant talking points are below.

Remember Feuer is a real anti (microstamping, etc.) and it's important to stamp out his work.


More info on the bill: http://nramemberscouncils.com/legs.shtml?summary=ab809&year=2011

Scroll down & find AB809 and do a 'one click' email to Assembly: http://nramemberscouncils.com/legs.shtml#contactinfo

Contact info (phones, emails) for CA Assembly members: http://nramemberscouncils.com/legs/asm.shtml


Send emails and faxes, sure - but during that coffee/smoke break at work you normally take, you could step outside with your cellphone and tie up a switchboard for a few minutes and burn a few legislative staffers' time - and it'll only cost you a few cents' airtime (whatta bargain!)



=================================================
PLEASE CIRCULATE AND CROSS-POST TO ALL GUN OWNERS
=================================================

To all:

Please contact the members of the CA State Assembly and urge them to vote NO on Assembly Bill 809 (Feuer: long gun registration).

Some talking points regarding AB809:

Assembly Bill 809 will require the registration of rifles and shotguns at the point of sale.
.
The implementation of AB809 mandates the borrowing of start-up money from the Department of Justice
DROS (Dealer Record of Sale) account. The start up costs of creating a computerized registration system
to implement AB809 could be close to a million dollars. This cost will drain the already depleted DROS account
and could lead to an increase in the DROS fee in the future.
.
AB809 will weaken the enforcement of firearms laws in California, because the DROS funds are used to pay
for DOJ enforcement officers to enforce current firearms laws, inspect licensed dealers and regulate gun shows.
.
Long gun registration has been tried in Canada and has failed. After spending over two BILLION dollars, Canada
is now considering full elimination of the registration program.


Remember, contact the Assembly and urge them to reject this wasteful and un-necessary registration scheme. Circulate this entire message to all gun owners, clubs, forums, blogs, etc. Spread the word and keep up the pressure!

If you have any questions, please contact me using the contact information below.

Great, so let's do the same for the Senate. Not that my local rep could care. She loves all anti-gun laws & just laughs when I call to suggest she shouldn't support things like AB962

What is the status of AB 809?

What is the status of AB 809?

Passed by the Assembly, so now it moves on to the Senate committees, followed by a full vote of the Senate, then on to the governor's desk.

I tried to email but, for some reason, it said delivery failed permanently. Using Gmail by the way.

Any ideas as to why?

If this doesn't pass the Senate tomorrow it is dead. Correct? Let us hope it fails like last time.

My letter to my Senator:

Re AB 809

Senator XXX,

Please oppose Assembly Bill 809. The fiscal effects of this bill include $100K in software development and more than $300K in ongoing costs. For what? An inaccurate database that will also exclude millions of previously owned firearms? In a time of financial crisis, it's not necessary to dump half a million dollars down a hole that has limited utility.

There's also the chilling effect on freedom. How freely would you use your library if you knew that the government was keeping records of what you read? How about keeping records of what you watch on TV? The sites you browse on the internet?

As a member of the NRA and the California Rifle and Pistol Association, I urge you to please reject this bill.

Best regards,

jdberger

Not one of my finest, but it does a couple of things.

1) It registers my opposition to the bill. Remember, for every person who contacts their legislator, 100 hold the same views.
2) It identifies me as an NRA and CRPA member. Though neither weild a significant amount of political power in this state, it's well known that we vote - and have the ability to swing elections.
3) It shows that we're paying attention. We can't win if we don't know what's going on.

Please folks, take a second and write a quick note to your Senator and urge them to oppose this bill (which is going to the floor today).

If you don't know who your Assemblymember is, the Bradys have a handy little tool that can help you find them.

C'mon folks. We can't win if they don't know that we're here.

We can't win if we don't show up.

No, June 3rd is the last day for a bill to pass out of its house of origin. Now, the Senate has until September 9th to pass any Assembly bills, such as this one. Unfortunately, all anti-gun bills have been passed by their house of origin, AB809, SB124, SB427, AB144, SB798.
