    AB 1471, the microstamping idiocy, is on Arnie's desk now. He has vetoed some bad bills before. We need help from anyone and everyone to register opposition. You can do it easily for the price of a long distance call. You don't have to speak to anyone. It's entirely automated.

    CALL Gov's Sac number (916-445-2841)

    Press 1 - for English
    Press 2 - for Voice your opinion on Assembly Bills
    Press 1 - for Micro Stamping Bill (AB1471)
    Press 2 to OPPOSE the gun control bill.

    AB 1471 is at the top of the heap, so we need to flood the automated system with as much opposition as we can. Tell your friends. Every call out here counts.

    Mods, if this was posted somewhere else, my apologies. I looked but didn't see it.

    Thanks.

    Note that the number is very busy.

    Alternatively, email via the Governor's web site also works; AB 1471 is on the list "Please Choose Your Subject" in alphabetical order at "Firearms:Microstamping".

    Short. Polite. Calm.

    Unless you have Arnie's ear directly, the folks that see this are just staff, and their main job is tallying counts for and against.

    Keep calling. It takes seconds and we have no one but ourselves to blame if the number is not kept busy with no votes.:cuss:

    "Description:



    AB 1471

    Semi-automatic pistols must have make, model, and serial number etched inside the pistol that are transferred on to each cartridge case when the firearm is fired."

    how would that work? The firing pin would act like a rough stamp?

    See this report on testing the technology.
    It sorta works, sometimes, on some guns with some ammunition.

    Don't know if I'm eligible to voice my opinion, since I reside in the US, but it took me all of 43 seconds using the phone number. It wasn't busy.

    If you reside outside of CA don't think this doesn't affect you. This odious piece of legislation, or something like it, is coming to your state as well. :mad:

    AB1471 microstamping

    Eugene DePasquale, D-York, said he regularly hears from constituents about defending the rights of gun owners.

    "The NRA has been very effective at building a very solid grass-roots organization in areas all across the state," he said. "When you hear from actual voters in your district, that has actual impact."

    Could be said better. call fax and e-mail

    I called in and will continue to do so for my brothers in California. If this passes, it will only be a matter of time before the Antis in other states start pushing this Judge Dredd technology on the rest of us. :fire:

    Wondering how much good this is doing

    My livelyhood is setting up telephone rat-mazes like the one mentioned in the above thread.

    If this were my IVR I would have 4 counters broken into instate/out of state (based on caller ID) and for/against.

    In For
    In Against
    Out For
    Out Against

    I wonder if they are doing this and if they are ignoring the out of state "voters"

    I called in but I used a caller ID block on my verizon cell phone this entails dialing *67 1 916 445 2841. Not sure how this works on other carriers or land lines.

    If you are calling out out of state you may want to block your caller ID.

    As coincidence would have it one of my office lines has a Sacramento number (I live/work in Utah) I'll call from that line incase they log the caller ID.

    Thank you all for helping us out. The lines have been extremely busy at times. Hopefully that is from all the support we are getting.

    Keep it up. We're not quitting out here.

    How does one block their ID before making a call?
    I just called, but I'll call again with the ID blocked, if I can.
