Was stationed at Ft. MacArthur at San Pedro in the mid 60s. CA was a nice gun friendly place then. There was no problem carrying a loaded handgun in a car so long as it was not concealed. Then in 1966 the politicians became scared of the black panthers and passed the sorry Mulford Act. It's been down hill from there.

Both Democrat and Republican governors In CA have signed their share of anti-gun trash in into law. Governor Pete Wilson (R) banned the sale of ammo during the Rodney King riots in LA.

SB 124 doesn’t stop there; it could also ban virtually all non-lead ammunition used in California by reclassifying them as “armor piercing.” If this bill did not already make owning a firearm difficult, an amendment was added by the bill sponsor to further add more problems for gun owners. SB 124 would also require the registration of ammunition and banning of mail-order ammunition. This bill would have enormous ramifications for California gun owners and sportsmen to include a complete ban on hunting in the California condor zone in which the use of lead ammunition is prohibited for hunting. SB 124 passed in the state Senate by a 22 to 16 vote.
Here are some great resources you may not have thought about. The Wildlife Society, The National Turkey Federation, The Sierra Club, and perhaps other conservation groups that contain large amounts of hunters within their memberships and have dedicated professionals that could perhaps help you guys out there in Cali.

I am a member of The Wildlife Society and they have put out opinion papers dedicated to the use of lead ammo for hunting. Im sure these others would also have similar opinions. Surely this legislation would interest at least their local or state chapters?

Food for thought from your tree-huggin' dirt-worshiper.

You are most welcome, there are a "few" of us "left-wingers" who don't agree with the whole anti-gun stuff. Probably more than you think, cuz out there in Cali, you got some real "winners" that tend to be more outspoken than a most, and I think thats a real problem.

I really don't understand the whole anti-gun crowd. It just makes no since to me.
