Default NRA and CRPA California Legal Affairs Report (AUGUST 2017)

Hello Calguns!

My name is Matthew Cubeiro. I am one of the attorneys with Michel & Associates, and have been with the firearms regulatory compliance and litigation team since 2014. If you don’t already know, our office represents both the National Rifle Association of America and the California Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc., in their ongoing efforts to protect the right to keep and bear arms in California.

Many of you have seen prior posts from Clint Monfort and Sean Brady highlighting NRA and CRPA efforts in California. Today, I am pleased to announce that our office has prepared an updated and much more comprehensive NRA and CRPA California Legal Affairs report which is now available.

The complete NRA and CRPA California Legal Affairs Report can be found HERE.

This report provides an overview of just some of the efforts the NRA and CRPA are taking to protect the rights of California gun owners. Although litigation plays an extremely important role in the fight for the right to keep and bear arms, NRA and CRPA are heavily involved in many other tremendous and equally important endeavors throughout California and across the nation.

As has been and always will be the case, NRA and CRPA invest enormous amounts of resources to protect the Second Amendment at all levels of California’s government, including all 58 counties, all 482 municipalities, and all state and local agencies tasked with enforcing the myriad of complex and ever expanding state and local gun laws.

NEWLY FILED AND SOON TO BE FILED LAWSUITS

NRA and CRPA are working together to file multiple lawsuits challenging multiple anti-gun-owner laws signed by Governor Jerry Brown in July 2016 and passed as part of Proposition 62 (which was overwhelmingly opposed by police). These statutes have become known collectively as “Gunmageddon” among California’s roughly 10 million gun owners, will do nothing to stop terrorists or violent criminals, and infringe on your right to keep and bear arms. Below are just some of these lawsuits that have been filed or will soon be filed:

Lawsuit Challenging the Expanded “Assault Weapon” Ban
SB 880 and AB 1135 expanded the AWCA to include certain semi-automatic firearms equipped with “bullet-buttons” or similar magazine locking devices. This lawsuit, Rupp v. Becerra, challenges the ban on the possession of certain semi-automatic firearms listed by make/model or those firearms equipped with certain “features” as unconstitutional Second Amendment, Due Process Clause, and Takings Clause violations.

Lawsuit Challenging California Department of Justice’s “Assault Weapon” Regulations
This lawsuit challenges proposed regulations for the registration of modern sporting rifles newly misclassified “assault weapons” under SB 880 and AB 1135. DOJ first submitted proposed regulations in December 2016 that far exceeded its regulatory and statutory authority and included over 40 new definitions, burdensome registration requirements, and restrictions on modifications of firearms once registered. NRA and CRPA submitted joint-opposition letters, and DOJ subsequently withdrew their proposal. But on May 15, DOJ re-submitted their proposed regulations without significant changes. This lawsuit challenges DOJ’s proposed regulations as a violation of California’s Administrative Procedures Act.

Lawsuit Challenging the Ban on Possession of Standard Capacity Magazines
SB 1146 and Prop 63 prohibit possession of the magazines that can hold over ten rounds after July 1, 2017. This lawsuit, Duncan v. Becerra, challenges the ban on Second Amendment grounds.

Lawsuit Challenging California Department of Justice’s “High Capacity” Magazine Regulations
This lawsuit challenges proposed regulations that would expand the types of magazines considered to be “high capacity” magazines. DOJ first submitted proposed regulations in December 2016 that far exceeded its regulatory and statutory authority. NRA and CRPA submitted joint-opposition letters, and DOJ subsequently withdrew their proposal. When they are reissued, this lawsuit will challenge DOJ’s regulations as a violation of California’s Administrative Procedures Act.

Lawsuit Challenging Ammunition Sales Registration and Licensing Statutes
Effective January 1, 2019, SB 1235 and Prop 63 require the sale and transfer of ammunition to be conducted through face-to-face transfers and prohibit online orders of ammunition. On July 1, 2019, there will be a background check requirement for purchase of ammunition. This lawsuit will challenge the constitutionality of these laws as violations of the Second Amendment and Commerce Clause. CA DOJ has yet to propose regulations for the new requirements. Should these regulations exceed DOJ’s authority, a separate lawsuit may also be necessary.

Lawsuit Challenging DOJ’s Ammunition Sales Registration and Licensing Regulations
The California DOJ has yet to propose regulations to implement these new laws. But when it does, a legal challenge will undoubtedly be called for.

Lawsuits to Bring “Shall-Issue” Public Carry to California
The Peruta v. California case challenges San Diego County Sheriff’s “good cause” requirement for the issuance of a CCW, but could have statewide impact. In June 2016, an 11-judge “en banc” panel of the Ninth Circuit reversed an earlier 3-judge panel decision which had held the Sheriff’s policy violated the Second Amendment. A Petition to the United States Supreme Court was filed on January 12. The case is currently awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court on whether or not it will rehear the case. A decision can be expected as early as June 26.

Lawsuit Challenging Los Angeles County’s Public Carry Ban
Whether the Supreme Court takes the Peruta case or not, Flanagan v. Harris was filed in direct response to the “en banc” panel opinion in Peruta. This lawsuit seeks to strike down the complete prohibition on the right of law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm for self-defense that exists in many local jurisdictions.

Lawsuit in District of Columbia Circuit Court to Strike Down Bans on Public Carry
The Grace v. District of Columbia lawsuit challenge Washington D.C.’s “good reason” requirement to get a license to carry a firearm in public. The D.C. law is similar to California’s “good cause” requirement, and a win would be helpful legal precedent in California. In May 2016, the district court granted a request for an order blocking enforcement of the “good reason” requirement. The government has appealed. Oral arguments were held on September 20, 2016. A decision is expected anytime. This case may provide another opportunity for the Supreme Court to confirm that the Second Amendment protects the right to carry firearms for self-defense.

Default FIREARMS LITIGATION

FIREARMS LITIGATION

The litigation report provides a brief overview and update on NRA and CRPA’s recent litigation efforts in California, including amicus and consulting support in other firearm related cases throughout the United States.


NRA/CRPA California and 9th Circuit Litigation Matters

Rupp v. Becerra – Challenge to California’s “assault weapon” restrictions. Filed on April 24 in response to Senate Bill 880 and Assembly Bill 1135. Plaintiffs will soon be conducting discovery and will file a motion for summary judgment. http://michellawyers.com/rupp-v-becerra/

Duncan v. Becerra – Challenge to California’s standard capacity magazines restrictions. Filed on May 17 in response to Senate Bill 1446 and Proposition 63. Plaintiffs have filed a motion to suspend enforcement of California’s new ban against “possession” of standard capacity magazines while the lawsuit is pending, which is set to take effect July 1, 2017. http://michellawyers.com/duncan-v-becerra/

Flanagan v. Becerra – Challenge to CA and Los Angeles firearm carry restrictions that prohibit both open and concealed carry. This case was filed on August 17, 2016 as a direct response to the “en banc” Peruta decision. The suit seeks to force the court to decide whether or not it is willing to uphold a complete prohibition on the right of law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm for self-defense. http://michellawyers.com/michelle-fl...-harris-et-al/.

Additional upcoming lawsuits challenging the new laws that were passed in 2016 aptly titled “gunmageddon,” including Proposition 63, that improperly punish law-abiding gun owners.

Peruta v. California (formerly Peruta v. San Diego) – Challenge to “good cause” requirement for CCWs. In June 2016, a divided “en banc” panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 7-4 in favor of the County, holding that the government’s denial of the only means of carrying a firearm under state law does not implicate the Second Amendment. On January 12, NRA and CRPA attorneys submitted a petition for review to the United States Supreme Court. Several amicus briefs in support of the petition have been filed. A decision on whether or not the Court agrees to hear the case is expected shortly. http://michellawyers.com/perutavsandiego.

Bauer v. Becerra – Challenge to CA DOJ’s excessive DROS fees that generated a massive surplus. On June 1, the 9th Circuit affirmed the district court opinion. Plaintiffs now have the option of submitting a petition for review to the United States Supreme Court or requesting an “en banc” review by a larger panel of the 9th Circuit. http://michellawyers.com/barry-bauer...justice-et-al/.

Gentry v. Becerra – Challenges CA DOJ’s use of the DROS surplus to fund the Armed Prohibited Person System database. The case is expected to go to trial in 2017. http://michellawyers.com/gentry-v-harris/.

Belemjian v. Becerra – Challenge to CA DOJ’s underground regulations regarding the Firearm Safety Certificate Program. This case forced DOJ to finally begin the process of enacting proper regulations for the program in February 2015. Briefing concerning attorneys’ fees has been completed, and oral arguments are expected to take place in late 2017. http://michellawyers.com/kim-belemji...-harris-et-al/.

Parker v. California – Vagueness challenge to AB 962’s “handgun ammunition” sales registration requirement and mail order ban. As a result of Prop 63, the California Supreme Court dismissed its review of the Court of Appeals’ opinion that upheld the trial court’s order striking down AB 962. The Court of Appeals decision now stands as the final opinion in the case and Plaintiffs will seek recovery of their attorneys’ fees. Separate litigation is being prepared to challenge the ammunition restrictions in Prop 63. http://michellawyers.com/guncasetrac...ervcalifornia/.

Fyock v. Sunnyvale – Challenge to Sunnyvale’s 10+ round magazine possession ban. As a result of the passage of Prop 63 and SB 1446, the case was dismissed without prejudice in December 2016. The Duncan case has been filed to challenge the State’s restrictions. If Duncan is successful, this case will be refiled against the City of Sunnyvale. http://michellawyers.com/fyock-v-sunnyvale/.

Bosenko v. City of Los Angeles – Preemption challenge to the City’s ordinance banning possession of 10+ round magazines. The City is currently in the process of repealing the ordinance because it is now preempted by state law. Once repealed, the case will be dismissed. http://michellawyers.com/shasta-coun...angeles-et-al/.


California and 9th Circuit Amicus and Consulting Support

In addition to the previously mentioned cases, NRA and CRPA regularly provide consulting advice and prepare amicus curiae of “friend of the court” briefs in a number of other firearm related cases. NRA and CRPA have supported or will be supporting the following cases.

Teixeira v. Alameda County – Challenge to the county’s FFL zoning restrictions. On January 31, 2017, NRA and CRPA attorneys filed an amicus brief in the case. Oral arguments were held on March 22, and the case is currently awaiting a decision. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...f-NRA-CRPA.pdf.

Baker v. Kealoha – Challenge to Hawaii’s CCW scheme. On March 10, the 9th Circuit issued an order remanding the case to the District Court in light of the “en banc” panel decision in Peruta. The case will now proceed in the District Court. http://michellawyers.com/baker-v-kealoha/.

Pena v. Lindley – Challenge to California’s handgun roster. In July 2015, NRA and CRPA attorneys filed an amicus brief in the case. Oral arguments were held on March 16, and the case is currently awaiting a decision. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...d-Reversal.pdf.

Silvester v. Becerra – Challenge to California’s 10-day wait as applied to current firearm owners. In December 2016, the 9th Circuit issued its decision upholding the restriction. On April 4, the 9th Circuit denied Plaintiff’s petition for “en banc” review. Plaintiffs now have the option of petitioning the United States Supreme Court for review. http://michellawyers.com/silvester-v-harris/.

Tracy Rifle and Pistol v. Becerra – First Amendment challenge to California’s handgun advertising ban. In July 2015, the district court denied a request to prohibit enforcement while the case proceeds. That decision was upheld by the 9th Circuit in February 2016. Litigation will now resume in the district court. http://michellawyers.com/tracy-rifle...-llc-v-harris/.

NSSF v. Pleasant Hill – Challenge to the City’s restrictive FFL zoning ordinance. The case has been settled, with the City agreeing to pay NSSF over $400,000 in legal fees. http://crpa.org/pleasant-hill-agrees...ing-ordinance/.

Doe v. Becerra – Challenges DOJ’s underground regulation barring the sale of more than one handgun in 30 days to COE holders. The California trial court upheld DOJ’s regulation and the plaintiffs have appealed the decision to the California Court of Appeals. Briefing is currently underway. http://michellawyers.com/doe-v-harri...uperior-court/.

Nesbitt v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Challenge to the ban on possession and carriage of firearms on recreational Army Corps’ lands. The Army Corps of Engineers is reconsidering its firearms policy, and will work with plaintiffs to settle the matter outside of court. http://michellawyers.com/morris-v-u-...-of-engineers/.

NSSF v. California – State court challenge to California’s microstamping requirements. On March 22, the California Supreme Court agreed to rehear the case following a petition from the State of California. Briefing is currently underway. http://appellatecases.courtinfo.ca.g...doc_no=S239397.


National Cases with California Interest

NRA and CRPA also litigate and provide assistance in a number of critical Second Amendment cases across the country that could set precedent for future challenges to California gun laws. The following are some of the more recent and significant examples of these cases.

Kolbe v. Hogan – Challenge to Maryland’s ban on “assault weapons” and 10+ round magazines. In April 2016, the CRPA Foundation filed an amicus brief in this NRA-supported case. On February 21, an “en banc” panel of the 4th Circuit issued an opinion upholding Maryland’s ban, referring to the most popular rifles in America as “exceptionally lethal weapons of war.” Plaintiffs will soon file a petition for review to the United States Supreme Court. http://michellawyers.com/kolbe-v-omalley/.

Grace v. District of Columbia – Challenge to Washington D.C.’s “good reason” requirement for the issuance of a CCW. In August 2016, the CRPA Foundation, joined by several law enforcement groups, filed an amicus brief in this NRA-supported case. Oral arguments were held on September 20, 2016, along with Wrenn v. District of Columbia. A decision is expected anywhere in the next 3-9 months. http://michellawyers.com/grace-v-district-of-columbia/.

Default LOCAL ORDINANCE PROJECT

LOCAL ORDINANCE PROJECT

In addition to monitoring all of California’s local jurisdictions and opposing any proposed anti-gun ordinance, LOP efforts include developing and working with a network of professionals, citizens, local government officials, and law enforcement professionals to effectively oppose any local threats to California gun owners.

Opposition campaigns typically include the preparation of opposition or pre-litigation demand letters, grassroots coordination, public information campaigns, and, in some cases, appearances at city council hearings. In many instances, these efforts have prompted local governments to vote down proposals or pull them from consideration. LOP efforts also serve as the foundation for NRA and CRPA litigation efforts against municipalities that enact anti-gun legislation. Recent LOP efforts include:

Statewide Local Elections – LOP continually develops and maintains detailed voting histories of local politicians, including whether they proposed or supported any firearm-related legislation. These records are used to create local election voting guides for members. The most recent of such guides can be viewed online at http://crpa.org/local-elections/.

Palm Springs – In July 2016, the City Council introduced a number of anti-gun proposals. LOP alerted NRA and CRPA members to attend City Council meetings, and submitted two letters of opposition. LOP also published an editorial written by C.D. Michel discussing the problems with the City’s proposal. Despite overwhelming opposition, the City voted 3-2 in favor of enacting several of the proposed provisions.
July opposition letter- http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...-Ordinance.pdf.
September opposition letter- http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...cipal-Code.pdf.
C.D. Michel editorial- http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...osecutions.pdf.

City of Los Angeles – In June 2016, the City Council instructed the LAPD to target so-called “bad apple” gun dealers in the city. In a joint-effort with FFLGuard, LOP prepared and submitted a letter to all FFLs in the City warning them of the Council’s action. Not a single dealer has been prosecuted as a result of the City’s effort.

Moraga – The Town Council has listed implementation of a “safe firearm storage” and “home based firearm dealer” ordinance as a proposed goal for 2017. So far, the town has yet to introduce a draft ordinance. LOP is continuing to monitor Town Council agendas for any developments. http://www.moraga.ca.us/council/meetings/2017

Encinitas – In March 2016, City Councilmembers asked staff to prepare a mandatory locked storage and FFL zoning restriction ordinance. LOP is continuing to monitor agendas for any proposed ordinance. http://ci.encinitas.ca.us/Government/Agendas-Webcasts

Sonoma County – In October 2016, the Sonoma County Sheriff sought approval from the Board of Supervisors to increase the psychological testing fee for CCW applicants from $150 to $550. LOP submitted an opposition letter, and as a result, the Board pulled the proposal from consideration and stated it has no plans to pursue the matter further. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...-Psyc-Test.pdf.

Belvedere – In September 2016, the City introduced an ordinance mandating the locked storage of all handguns kept at one’s home, but only providing an exception for CCW holders (which no Belvedere resident has thanks to the sheriff’s restrictive issuance policy). LOP submitted an opposition letter, and in October the City agreed to amend the ordinance to at least include an exception for all law-abiding citizens when carrying the firearm. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...cipal-Code.pdf.

El Cerrito – Under the City’s “Master Fee Schedule,” individuals applying for a CCW through the El Cerrito Police Department must pay $961 for a local processing fee, well in excess of the $100 cap. LOP submitted a pre-litigation demand letter seeking repeal of the excessive fee, to which the City agreed and will soon introduce a resolution for repeal. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...Permit-Fee.pdf.

San Jose – In September 2016, the City’s Rules and Open Government Committee voted to pursue a mandatory locked-storage ordinance. LOP alerted NRA and CRPA members to attend the Committee meeting, and will continue to monitor agendas for any proposed ordinance. http://crpa.org/san-jose-rules-open-...rms-ordinance/.

Del Mar – In November, the Del Mar Fairgrounds Board of Directors held an open meeting at the request of several anti-gun residents to discuss the use of the fairgrounds for gun shows. LOP alerted NRA and CRPA members, and submitted a letter of comment detailing all of the rules and requirements gun shows are required to abide by. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...-Directors.pdf.

Orange County – Many residents of Orange County are still unclear as to the Sheriff’s CCW issuance policy. In response, LOP drafted a comprehensive guide outlining the entire application process including what is required to satisfy the Sheriff’s “good cause” policy. The guide is freely available on CRPA’s website at http://crpa.org/helpfulguides/.

Kern County – In November 2016, the Kern High School District Board voted in favor of allowing teachers and staff to carry firearms. To assist the Board, LOP provided a copy of the comprehensive guide to California’s “Gun Free School Zone” law prepared by NRA and CRPA attorneys, available on CRPA’s website at http://crpa.org/resources/.

Cupertino – On January 12, the Cupertino Public Safety Commission held an open discussion on several anti-gun proposals. LOP alerted NRA and CRPA members, and submitted an opposition letter on behalf of NRA and CRPA members. http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...OPPOSITION.pdf. A reviewed ordinance regarding security requirements for firearm dealers is expected to come before the Public Safety Commission in July.

Buenaventura – On March 20, the City Council held an open discussion on a proposed ordinance requiring FFLs to install vehicle impact security devices in the form of “bollards” at all entrances. LOP alerted members to attend and submitted an opposition letter informing the City of the ordinance’s serious legal problems. The City Council discussed the LOP opposition letter during the meeting, but ultimately voted 6-1 in favor of the ordinance.
LOP Opposition Letter - http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...mmuniti....pdf

West Covina – The City is currently in the process of selecting a new Chief of Police. LOP alerts members to attend a special meeting soliciting input from residents and businesses regarding the recruitment. A decision by the City has not yet been made.

Statewide Public Record Requests – LOP regularly seeks public records in connection with local anti-gun efforts in California. Responses to these requests often yield valuable results, such as which government officials are working with anti-gun groups, sources of funding, and other important information.

Be sure to view the complete report which links to all of LOP’s opposition letters, alerts, and other related documents for each of the above.

Default REGULATORY MATTERS

REGULATORY MATTERS

Ongoing regulatory matters include drafting regulatory comment letters, providing legal support to NRA and CRPA lobbyists, drafting NRA and CRPA member alerts, and providing advice to NRA and CRPA members. Regulatory Counsel is also responsible for many of the recently published webinars available on the CRPA’s website which provide gun owners with a comprehensive analysis of recently enacted legislation and the recently proposed “assault weapon” regulations from the California Department of Justice. Recent regulatory efforts include:

Public record requests – NRA and CRPA regularly seek and obtain public records from DOJ and local law enforcement relating to internal agency policies and interpretations of California firearm laws. Recently, responses to these requests provided key financial analysis reports regarding proposed firearm legislation, which were subsequently used in drafting legislative opposition letters and veto requests to the governor.

New California Gun Laws – NRA and CRPA regularly work to provide Californian’s with up-to-date information on California laws, regulations, and policies regarding firearms to help gun owners avoid prosecution and retainer their right to keep and bear arms. In connection with these efforts, NRA and CRPA produce webinars on a variety of topics, including the loaning of firearms, the new “assault weapon” laws, the new ammunition sales laws, and the recently proposed “assault weapon” regulations.
You can view all of these webinars for free at- www.CRPA.org/webinars

Assistance for California members – NRA and CRPA have a variety of resources available to members, including the ability to refer individuals to attorneys specializing in firearm laws. http://crpa.org/resources/.

Gun violence restraining orders – Since January 2016, new laws allow family members and law enforcement to seek “gun violence restraining orders.” In response, NRA and CRPA published a comprehensive guide for judges, prosecutors, attorneys, police, and gun owners explaining all of the aspects of the new law. https://californiariflepistol.z2syst...8&catalogId=1&.

CCW in school zones – To assist CCW holders understand California’s “gun-free” school zone law, NRA and CRPA published a comprehensive guide that has also been provided to school administrators who are considering allowing parents and teachers to carry firearms on school grounds. https://californiariflepistol.z2syst...2&catalogId=1&.

DOJ’s proposed “large-capacity” magazine regulations – In December 2016, DOJ proposed a series of “emergency” regulations relating to magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. NRA and CRPA alerted members, prepared a comprehensive analysis, and submitted a letter of opposition to the Office of Administrative Law. DOJ voluntarily withdrew its proposal, but could re-introduce it at any time.
NRA/CRPA Opposition Letter - http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...s_12.28.16.pdf.

DOJ’s proposed “bullet-button assault weapon” regulations (December 2016) – In December 2016, DOJ submitted its anticipated regulations regarding the procedures for registering newly classified “assault weapons.” In response, NRA and CRPA submitted a pre-litigation demand letter to DOJ and an opposition letter to the Office of Administrative law, and produced a webinar for California gun owners outlining the effects of the proposal. To view the webinar, visit www.crpa.org/webinars.
Pre-Litigation Demand Letter- http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...ons_1.9.17.pdf.
Opposition Letter- http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...ons_1.9.17.pdf.

DOJ’s proposed “bullet-button assault weapon” regulations (May 2017) – in May, DOJ resubmitted their regulations for “assault weapons” to the Office of Administrative Law. NRA and CRPA against alerted members to the proposal, and is currently drafting a pre-litigation demand letter. NRA and CRPA also produced a webinar outlining the new changes and requirements under the proposed regulations. The Office of Administrative Law is expected to make a decision on whether or not to publish the regulations by June 26.

Implementation of Proposition 63 – Beginning January 1, 2018, courts will require those convicted of firearm prohibiting offenses to turn in/transfer firearms pursuant to Prop 63. To better inform the courts and members of the public regarding this process, NRA And CRPA prepared and submitted a letter of comment to the Judicial Council of California. NRA and CRPA are continuing to monitor the implementation of Prop 63 and will submit further letters of comment as needed.

Assistance to gun clubs and youth groups – NRA and CRPA are currently assisting Firearm clubs and youth groups with navigating California’s many complex requirements regarding firearms and how best to avoid unintentional violations of California law.

California’s Firearm Violence Research Center – California has granted $5 million to create the “California Firearm Violence Research Center.” The individual chosen to head this center is a known anti-Second Amendment activist. NRA and CRPA will continue to monitor the center’s activities to ensure taxpayer money is not wasted on biased and unsubstantiated research.

DOJ policies prohibiting interstate PPTs of handguns – Contrary to California law, DOJ prohibits FFLs from conducting PPTs when the seller is not a California resident. NRA and CRPA have submitted a petition to the Office of Administrative Law challenging DOJ’s policy as an “underground regulation.” The Office of Administrative Law denied the petition, and further legal action is being considered.

Default HUNTING MATTERS

HUNTING MATTERS

Closely related to Regulatory Matters are NRA and CRPA’s efforts to monitor and respond to issues impacting hunters throughout California. These efforts include developing strategies and taking action when necessary before the Legislature, Fish & Game Commission, local municipalities, and other various regulatory agencies. Recent hunting efforts include:

Coalition building – NRA and CRPA recently held two full days of presentations to California hunting groups laying out the plan for addressing attacks on hunting rights in California. The groups unanimously formed a coalition and will be working together in the future to protect hunting rights here in California.

Potential legal challenges – NRA and CRPA closely monitor current and potential legal challenges to timely and effectively intervene or file litigation as appropriate.

Increasing Support for Hunting Rights – NRA and CRPA are engaged in ongoing efforts to grow hunting rights coalitions and spread awareness.

Monitoring anti-hunting forces – NRA and CRPA regularly submit public records act requests for documents concerning efforts of anti-hunting groups, analyze Fish & Game Commission meeting agendas, and prepare lobbyists for addressing matters of interest before the Fish & Game Commission and Wildlife Resources Committee.

Membership alerts – NRA and CRPA regularly prepare alerts for members regarding new hunting rules and regulations, and to encourage participation at Fish & Game Commission and Wildlife Resources Committee meetings.

Opposition to anti-hunting regulations – NRA and CRPA have prepared and submitted several petitions to repeal or amend current regulations that negatively affect hunters and to promote the adoption of regulations that benefit hunters. Most recently, petitions demanding transparency and structure for Fish & Game Commission operations and to allow archery hunters to carry side arms were submitted.

Opposition to HSUS predator policies – NRA and CRPA continually challenge HSUS regarding non-lethal coyote policies in cities where pets and family members are being attacked, and are working to broaden the coalition of individuals and groups opposed to HSUS policies in light of the dangers to typical family households.

Default RANGE MATTERS AND FULLY TIME LOBBYING EFFORTS

RANGE MATTERS

Last but not least, NRA and CRPA continually monitor environmental, land use, and design and safety issues that heavily affect shooting ranges and areas in California and throughout the nation. Range assistance efforts include regular range evaluations and meetings with Club Boards to strategize and assist with coordination of defense campaigns against “not in my backyard” efforts from anti-gun environmental groups, state and federal agencies, and municipal governments. Recent range efforts include:

Stormwater runoff – Recently, the California Water Quality Control Board has been inspecting all shooting ranges in the central valley area for potential lead contamination in stormwater runoff. NRA and CRPA range efforts have worked with ranges to ensure the Board is using the proper standards in its inspections.

Non-conforming “Use Status” and “Use Intensification” – Local jurisdictions are attempting to break the grandfathered status of many ranges as a non-conforming use under local ordinances. NRA and CRPA are working with ranges to defend their grandfather status which is crucial in keeping ranges open and operating.


FULL TIME LOBBYING EFFORTS

In addition, don’t forget that NRA and CRPA both employ full time lobbyists in Sacramento to fight on behalf of gun owners in the California Legislature. Every year, NRA and CRPA prepare comprehensive legislative updates and voting guides for local, state, and national elections, all of which are freely available online at www.crpa.org.

Thumbs up

Good read.

Matthew, a hearty thank you from a long time NRA life member ]1979[. for all your, Chuck Michels and all the attorneys in your firm. For the ongoing efforts to protect the second amendment on behalf of all Ca residents.

Maybe if some of the butt heads who own guns but are always whining about "What has the NRA done for Ca" read this, it will open their eyes and minds a bit.

Thanks Again, and keep up the good work.

well you know those gun owners think that the NRA can just wave and wand here and win.

Lets add those that don't vote and are not NRA members in this state let alone not bothering to be informed and get all pissed off when last years crap passed and they just found out.

thank you for the roll up.

That's an excellent write-up. Doing the good work is paramount BUT you never get the credit if you wait for people to hear about it "through the grape vine". Please continue to update the report, the public needs to know about all the efforts in the works.

Matthew Cubeiro, Thank You for the comprehensive update.

It will help quell the constant "NRA Doesn't Do Anything In California"
haters for a month or two before they resume their inane mantra,
so I would recommend updating the list on regular schedule.

Also, the NRA just saved the 2nd Amendment from annihilation
at the hands of Hillary and the Anti Gun Democrats:

Each of the reports will get updated on a regular basis. The most recent report will always be up on CRPA's website under the "Legal Affairs" tab at the top of the home page. Time permitting, I will update this thread as well.

Also, if you live in or around Orange County, stop by the new CRPA Training Center on February 11 between 10am and 2pm to learn more about the new Coalition of Orange County Gun Owners. The event is free and open to all. As an Orange County resident myself, I will be serving as Co-Chair and look forward to meeting all who attend. Expect to see more information about this event soon.

Excellent job on this. I see my donations to the CRPA is money well spent.
I plan to now make monthly donations, investing in the 2nd A!!

And note the just incredible breadth of the attacks.

It's almost as if it might be co-ordinated.

See also the older thread from H. Paul Payne on how to contribute.

Thank you all for your comments and for helping us get the word out on this.

It does get a bit daunting for the MAPC lawyers, CRPA staff, and NRA California staff all to be working SO HARD and then get crap from people who don't realize all that's being done, or worse, know but would rather others didn't know so they can keep fundraising for their largely redundant efforts.

On donating - Paul's thread on donating is a little dated.

Easiest way to donate is at CRPA.org.

CRPA and NRA coordinate their funds for these and other efforts, and NRA spends every dollar raised from California in California. So if you would rather give directly to NRA, that's great too.

Wow! Thank you for putting this list together and committing to maintaining it. It is the first place I will send the "NRA has written off California" crowd. Also, thank you for the donation clarification and mentioning CRPA and NRA coordinate their efforts. I have known about their close coordination but didn't know the NRA spends every dollar raised in California in California. Good to know since I just put myself on the hook for an NRA membership upgrade from Life member to Patron. Keep up the great work!!

Thanks for the update. It was lengthy and I gave a semi thorough perusal, however I don't recall seeing anything about challenging the "roster". Is there any litigation on the horizon pertaining to this matter?

Great write up! Many year NRA member and just recently joined CRPA. Had no idea you guys were doing this much work. May all non-members of NRA/CRPA/CGF etc, read this and be willing to donate the $35 or so for said memberships. This is the time to support our rights. How much do we spend on ammo, guns, range trips compared to $35? We love to complain AFTER we've lost more rights, but did we support those who have the skills/ability to affect positive change/defend those rights such as described by Matthew?

Your NRA $35 Membership is only Step One.

Your NRA Membership money IS NOT USED to fight in the Political and
Legal Arenas.

You Also need to Donate to the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action)
Which does the actual Heavy Lifting in the Political and Legal Arenas:

Quick question. The newsletter mentions that litigation against the statewide ban on LCM possession is being prepared. Is the goal to seek an injunction before 7/1 when everyone has to dispose of them all?

I have also updated the first post to include information on the lawsuits that concern "gunmageddon" and Prop 63, as well as those cases related to Peruta which seek to bring "shall-issue" to California and other states with restrictive carry schemes.
