Los Angeles, CA – Firearms rights groups representing over 160,000 gun owners from around the state of California announced today that they will conduct a citizen action in Sacramento on the day the Committee on Public Safety hears twelve proposed bills concerning firearms and ammunition.
Concerned members of three California organizations; Gun Rights Across America – California, Californians Opposing Gun Restrictions and CALGUNS Shooting Sports Association will come to Sacramento on April 16 for a day of citizen action at the Capitol. The groups will present testimony, stand in support of other witnesses testifying at the hearings and protest the proposed those bills being heard on April 16th, as well as over 40 other unconstitutional, anti-Second Amendment bills proposed this legislative cycle.
California legislators are bent on depriving Californians of their Second Amendment rights – in what can only be described as an exercise in out-legislating other states. The proposed legislation does not seek to remedy any existingproblems, but would only abridge law-abiding citizen’s Constitutional Rights.
This comes at a time when California’s and the nation’s gun crime rates have been on the decline since 1991. Additionally, an overwhelming majority of over 15,000 law enforcement professionals polled recently say that firearms, magazine and ammunition restrictions and regulation would do nothing to affect crime rates.
25% of Californians own guns responsibly and in compliance with existing laws. The proposed laws are unwarranted. They would infringe on Californian’s Civil Rights as protected by the Second Amendment and do nothing about crime.
