CALNRA: 9/13/2007 5:00 AM

The legislature has adjourned for the remainder of 2007. (Your NRA-ILA State Liaison, Ed Worley, was at the Capitol on the last day until 3:20 AM.) Bills that failed to pass the legislature have been turned into 2 year bills, meaning they can again become active when the legislature reconvenes in January, 2008. For more information on bills that were stalled, visit:
http://calnra.com/legs.shtml

Firearm-related bills on the Governor's desk:

AB 821 Lead Ammo Ban / Condor Bill - OPPOSE
http://calnra.com/legs.shtml?year=2007&summary=ab821

AB 1471 Microstamping - OPPOSE
http://calnra.com/legs.shtml?year=2007&summary=ab1471

PLEASE CONTACT THE GOVERNOR AND URGE A VETO ON AB 821 AND AB 1471. In California, the Governor must actively veto legislation sent to him within 30 days to prevent it from becoming law. If he ignores the bill, it becomes law by default at the end of that period.

AB 1645 Katrina Protections Bill - SUPPORT
http://calnra.com/legs.shtml?year=2007&summary=ab1645

PLEASE CONTACT THE GOVERNOR AND URGE HIS SIGNATURE ON AB 1645.

Contact tools have been provided at the above URLs.

FYI, at this time, NRA has already passed 1 pro-gun bill into law:

AB 854 PUBLICATIONS - SUPPORT

I heard there may be a special session this fall to deal with health care legislation. Does anyone know if any of the 2-year bills can be considered during this session? Not that I don't trust the legislature or anything like that, but it could be an ideal time to sneak through a few loose ends.

No, I am pretty sure there's a subject limitation on special sessions - a 'health care' session can't deal with other matters (kangaroo hunting, freeways, guns, etc.)

Good, as long as they're not in session they can't pass any more stupid bills.

Two anti gun bills, two pro gun. One anti affects almost all of us, one affects some. One pro gun helps us if a disaster strikes, one helps about 200 gun writers in CA.

Anyone care to handicap the outcome?

Don't diss the gunwriter bill. Great trees from little acorns grow. Right now it just helps Petersen, but anything for gunnies helps.

And Calguns may very well be a publication with a review staff :)

AB 821 - Gov will sign (everyone loves big bird), Barnes Triple-Shock X is available
AB 854 - Easy, already signed
AB 1471 - Veto
AB 1654 - Gov will sign, likely with some extra press.

Hmmmm..... now does a 'Publication' require being in print or does a website qualify?
Hmmm.....

While CDFG is the appropriate place to address the issue, and appears to be headed in a similar direction, their relative inaction puts pressure on the Gov to sign or allow 821 to become law. Clearly, hunter education or even a requirement to bury gut piles would be sufficient. However, this is the PRK. AZ has the same problem and I'm sure will follow a different path. Since when does mediocre science get in the way of anything? Have you heard of global warming and the "consensus" that humans are the sole cause?

However, I've made the rounds on every phone in the office and home, as well as numerous e-mail accounts (I hope the Gov doesn't remember who Arnold Ziffle was). Sent a letter via FedEx today for good measure.

Wasn't he that couch potato from around Pixley?
