    There people must be stopped! They certainly don't listen to a mere mortal like me. Any suggestions folks?

    From the NRA-ILA alert:

    On Tuesday, April 12, the California Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees, are scheduled to hear three anti-guns bills. Senate Bill 124 would ban virtually all handgun and rifle ammunition and cartridges, Assembly Bill 144 would ban open carry and Assembly Bill 809 would require long gun registration.

    SB 124, introduced by anti-gun extremist state Senator Kevin De León (D-22), is scheduled to be heard in the state Senate Public Safety Committee on April 12 at 9:30 am in Room 3191.

    SB 124 would create a broadly expanded and technically flawed definition of handgun ammunition which would encompass virtually all rifle cartridges. It would also ban the possession of many types of rifle cartridges and make it a felony to possess them. 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 passed, this bill could result in a complete ban on hunting in the California condor zone in which the use of lead ammunition is prohibited for hunting. This bill has enormous ramifications for California gun owners and sportsmen.

    The NRA is also expecting an anti-gun amendment regarding the registration of ammunition and the banning of mail-order ammunition to be introduced at this hearing.

    It is imperative that you call and e-mail members of the Senate Public Safety Committee IMMEDIATELY and urge them OPPOSE SB 124. Contact information for the Senate Public Safety Committee can be found at the bottom of this alert.

    Also on April 12, the state Assembly Public Safety Committee will hear two anti-gun bills at 9 a.m. in room 126 on the first floor of the capitol.

    In an effort to further stifle law-abiding gun owners from exercising their right to keep and bear arms, anti-gun Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44) has introduced legislation that would change the state’s gun laws and prohibit law-abiding citizens from carrying an unloaded handgun openly. It is currently legal to carry an unloaded handgun into most public places within the state, including restaurants and malls, but if approved, AB 144 would make it a misdemeanor to carry an unloaded handgun in public under most circumstances.

    AB 809, introduced again by F-rated Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-42), would establish a state registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired rifles and shotguns. Under AB809, the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser would be recorded and kept on file by the California Attorney General’s office.

    Please contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee listed at the bottom of this alert and urge them to OPPOSE AB 144 and AB 809.

    Also contact your state Senator and Representative and let them know that California is part of the United States and your firearm rights are protected by the Second Amendment. Let your state Senator and Representative know that SB 124, AB 144 and AB 809 infringe on your Second Amendment rights.

    I know a few things that needs to be done in Ca. but there not what everyone wants to hear. That being said I can not think of anything except muster all the Ca. Pro-gunners and head to them meatings to show support for your side and voice your opp. to the bills.

    This anti gun attitude and the expense of living here is why I want to leave. But my wife is happy with the new place, so we'll be there for an unknown amount of time. If I could escape CA, I would.

    Wow, it's going from bad to worse. I feel sorry for all the good responsible people who have a lot to lose if these measures pass.

    why do they do this to us in Ca? They've spent a lot of time opening doors and loopholes for the sale of drugs here in the last 10 years, but when it comes to a 220 year old RIGHT they pick away at it by any means necessary.

    My 2nd ammendment right is not a slab of meat... don't trim the fat and sure as hell don't burn the S#!% out of it.

    Are there any co-sponsors to those bills? If not, don't panic.

    If there are co-sponsors, you're left with four choices: 1) disarm - sell all your stuff; 2) be a good sheep and play along and register your stuff; 3) move to the United States (if you find out how to get there, please send me directions); 4) quietly refuse to comply.

    "I will not go quietly into the night"

    I will NOT disarm. I will NOT register my stuff. I will NOT move (I can't sell my house). I will NOT QUIETLY refuse to comply.
    I will not have my wife for much longer and I'm at the age that I can tell the socialist bas*ards to kiss my white okie a$$.
    Like the saying goes" If you come for mine, you better bring yours."

    FWIW, I just emailed Senate President Darrell Steinberg. He's the boss of the Safety committee :rolleyes: and my district representative.

    I had to call his office to get a valid email, his website kept me from contacting him, even though I live in his district. When I spoke with his flak catcher, she wasn't very interested in what I had to say and gave me short shrift. Perhaps I should have offered a bribe or something. :rolleyes:

    I just received the standard automated reply for Senator of the Douchebag Steinberg. I won't hold my breath for a positive outcome.

    When laws become illegal and draconian, law abiding citizens are forced to become outlaws.

    How strong is the progun movement in California? Do the members of the Progun groups stand up and voice their views to their government? The antigun groups seem to be very storng in California. Can the Progun people do any thing to put up a stronger front?

    We have a very strong pro-gun voice. CA has a LOT of shooters. For proof, just visit any IDPA or IPSC match. And visit the Angeles Range on any weekend.

    We've been trying. But the Dems have the Hispanic, Black, Illegal Alien and Old Hippie vote locked up. If it's a really tight race, they bring out the dead to vote.

    It's very tough to unseat the bastiges. That's why I threw up my hands and wanted to leave. Still want to leave actually, but I'm stuck.

    X2. Calguns.net has over 70,000 members and they are very active in the fight for our rights here in CA. Considering the cards we've been dealt here they are pretty effective as well.
