    CA moves closer to fingerprinting ammo buyers, limiting transfer of ammo between family members to 50 rounds or less, and banning internet ammo sales.

    I urge everyone in CA to fax and write in to your reps why this bill is a bad idea.

    Please consider contacting your state Senator to voice your opinion. As of right now the bill is not dead as it is currently before the CA Senate. Here's the link for the updated bill status.

    Go to this site and enter your zip code to find out who represents you in the CA Senate and Assembly.

    To make life easier I put together all of the contact information - [phone,fax,address and email] for the CA Senate and Assembly into formats that can be imported into your addressbooks.

    You can get the contact info in either .pst or .csv for Outlook here

    In vCard (.vcf) format here

    Directions for using vCards here

    In an Excel spreadsheet to copy and paste from here

    There is also a good thread on Calguns about it here

    It appears that this will not be heard on Tuesday's session but it is up for being heard at any of the following meetings.

    Update: NRA-ILA: California Anti-Gun Bills Advancing in Sacramento
    Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!


    On June 3, the Assembly passed Assembly Bill 962 by a 42-31 vote. AB962 now heads to the Senate where it has been assigned to the Senate Public Safety Committee. Also on June 3, Senate Bill 585 passed the Senate by a vote of 21-18. It now moves to the Assembly where it will be considered by the Assembly Public Safety Committee. No hearing dates have been scheduled for either bill.

    Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

    SB585, introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace. In short, SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California.

    It is imperative that you stand-up and respectfully make your voices heard! Please contact the members of the Senate Public Safety Committee and urge them to oppose AB962. Also, please contact the members of the Assembly Committee on Public Safety and insist that they defeat SB585. Contact information can be found below.

    And I doubt if they ever look at it, but they will vote on it with out a doubt. How many of our so called leaders ever looked at the stimulus package? None, because it was over a thousand pages and they believed what the idiot president said it contained who also had never read it....

    I set up this "copy and paste" letter on FreedomSpeaks if anyone is interested. They will email and fax to all of the members that you select for free,registration is required though. It will also allow you to resend your letter, or mine if you choose to use it, multiple times.

    I spoke with Brandi at Senator Price's office and she happens to be the aide that is responsible for putting together the Senators brief on the Appropriations committee!

    I asked if the Senator had an opportunity to review the Department of Finance Bill Analyses' report on AB962 and she said that she has been so busy that she has not yet had time to get and prepare it for the Senator. I asked if she would like me to send her a copy and she said "Yes, that would save me a lot of time trying to locate it." I then asked if she would like me to fax or email it and she gave me her email address. Just called and confirmed that she did receive my email. She was very thankful for the report and assured me that Senator Price would read it before he voted.

    With all of that said, I can't stress enough how important it is for each of us to call and in a polite and respectful way let our opinion be known as you never know who you might influence.

    Called the Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday and I was told that AB962 has been scheduled for the 20th.

    Please consider sending a fax,calling the appropriations committee, even if you have already done so, asking them to oppose AB962.

    Call them and ask if the Senators have read the report by the Department of Financial Bill Analysis. Also make sure to ask them to put your name down on the Opposition list. Here's the phone number (916)651-4101 and a copy of the Report.

    AB962 is scheduled to be heard this Monday, July 20th! We've got 4 days to make sure that our voices are heard. Please consider contacting the Senators below that have an Unknown / Undecided position on this bill.

    Tomorrow is the day AB962 will be heard before the Senate Appropriations Committee!

    If you haven't called or faxed the Senators yet please do so today. I realize they will most likely not be answering phones today but that does not stop you from leaving your name and number and requesting that they add you to the OPPOSED list.

    For any of you that are not inclined to get involved, please consider the fact that if this bill passes, and you are a resident of California, you will no longer be able to purchase ammunition online or through the mail.

    To those that have contacted the Senators on the Appropriations Committee, Thank you. I would urge you to consider calling or faxing again today so that there is no doubt in their minds that the sportsmen of California will not put up with this attack on our privacy and 2nd Amendment rights.

    The new hearing date could possibly be tomorrow or sometime after the budget bill(s) are considered - one of those indeterminate times in the future.

    Daily File currently says:

    Considering that the Govenator has said that he will veto anything that comes before him that is not budget related they could do us all a favor and go on recess. That would be July 17 - August 17, if they were to keep their schedule.
