Open Carry Ban Bill Passes California Assembly
- Folks -
I will tell you right now that although I was armed with a CCW, many, many
times I intentionally carried my weapon exposed. I used it as a deterrent
and I am happy to say that it worked every time. The only times I ever got
shot at or shot while working a case was when the darn gun was in the
purse or in a shoulder holster concealed by my jacket.
Open Carry Ban Bill Passes California Assembly and Goes to the Senate
Public Safety Committee
Contact members of the Senate Public Safety Committee TODAY to OPPOSE AB
Unfortunately, the California Assembly sided with the anti-gun extremists
and passed _Assembly Bill 144_
(http://www.nramedia.org/t/83604/6924927/3113/0/) , the open carry ban bill, by a _45 to 29 vote_
(http://www.nramedia.org/t/83604/6924927/4115/0/) . This bill now goes to the state Senate and
will be assigned to the state Senate Public Safety Committee. Please call and
e-mail members of the Senate Public Safety Committee and urge them not to
fall for the rhetoric anti-gun extremists are touting about the open
carrying of a firearm causing more violence. Contact information for members of
the state Senate Public Safety can be found below.
There are currently only six states that do not allow for the open
carrying of a firearm. California is the ONLY state considering banning open
carry. In fact, many states are considering legislation to loosen the
restrictions on gun owners by allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm
without a permit.
Do anti-gun activists really think that criminals will stop committing
crimes if law-abiding citizens can no longer openly carry a firearm? Crimes are
not being committed by law-abiding individuals who openly carry an
unloaded firearm in California.
Introduced by anti-gun Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44), AB 144 would
change the state’s gun laws and prohibit law-abiding citizens from
carrying an unloaded handgun openly.
Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners
asking them to also call members of the Senate Public Safety Committee to
OPPOSE AB 144.
Help stop anti-gun activists from chipping away at our Second Amendment
rights in California by calling and e-mailing the Senate Public Safety
