Default We are not alone in our opposition to SB249! Sheriff opposes!

A big thank you to Sheriff Stanley Sniff from Riverside Sheriff's for supporting California firearm owners. Today he submitted the attached PDF in Opposition to SB 249.

Some key quotes:

"I strongly oppose SB 249"

"This bill focuses on a non-existent problem..."

"This rifle platform - uniquely American - is probably the most prolific in the country. It is literally the modern American "musket".

"Even more critically, we should not be turning entire classes of citizen gun-owners from all walks of life, which made good-faith lawful rifle purchases over the past few, into criminals."

We have support. We can beat this bill. So Californians, are we going to sit around and complain, or are we going to join in and back up the good Sheriff in this fight, when he has taken the steps to join us and help protect our rights?

So, not only continue calling, e-mailing, faxing, etc your local representatives, but do this also:

Call your local Chief of Police, call your local Sheriff. Ask them to join in the opposition to SB 249 and stand by not only the citizens they protect, but their brother in uniform, Sheriff Sniff. Have them give you a similar letter of opposition and fax it to Senator Yee. Also, take this letter and fax it to Yee and all other Assembly members and Senators.


The above flyer is available here: http://www.calguns.net/249/CGN-SB249-SheriffSniff.pdf
The Sheriff's letter is here: http://www.calguns.net/249/SheriffSniff-OpposeLetterSB249.pdf

That surely gives me hope! Not all is lost. Maybe I should move to Riverside just to be able to vote for him.

I hope Sheriff Sniff wears spurs and a white cowboy hat, because he's one of the good guys. What a badass.

Thanks, Sheriff.

But this is pretty good, i hope more sheriff's join the cause.

The more of us that calls our local Sheriff's and Chief's the more likely we will be to get their support. Be sure to explain that as a law abiding citizen you are gravely concerned over this bill and how it may affect their department. If we all work together on this we can garner up a lot of support in opposition to this bill.

I would agree...be SURE to stress that you realize that CA is in the middle of very difficult times and LEAs everywhere are being forced to do more with less, and given the burden they're being forced to bear by the state, does this law make any sense to them?

This.

What a great proclamation to hear from a law enforcement official. Now if only my hometown Sheriff Scott Miller would sign a similar declaration. Somehow though I doubt it.

And the chances of the sheriff of my current county of residence, Santa Clara, coming out against SB249 is probably less than the probability of me winning the lottery.
