I am really sorry you lost your family heirloom revolver. This really was California stupid at its finest.
This law will be in effect January of 2014, it is not a proposed law. The link in my first post tells you what the new law is and when it takes effect. I absolutely get riled up about proposed bills. If we don't, the legislature will do as they see fit. Letters are fine and I am sure they help, but if people don't fight back HARD against proposed bills, we get more stupid laws that restrict our rights. We really can't afford not to pay attention to any proposed laws.
I don't expect everything handed to me. Just set it down anywhere.
