ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A STUPID GOP ALLOWING MIXED-MESSAGING BY SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT REPRESENT THE GOP
Why do I believe Obama is preparing a personal defense for the day Iran announces it has gone nuclear -- perhaps with the revelation that the North Korea test was on one of their ten bombs?

CALIFORNIA HUNTERS BEWARE: LIBERAL LEGISLATORS OUT TO IMPOSE GUN CONTROL BY THE BACKDOOR

 
IMMEDIATE ACTION IS CRITICAL: PROPOSED LEGISLATION WOULD BE DEVASTATING TO HUNTERS AND THEIR OWNERSHIP OF FIREARMS!!!
 
Recent tragic and highly publicized incidents involving the illegal use of firearms and ammunition have given political momentum to those who wish to severely restrict the ownership and possession of firearms and ammunition commonly used for hunting and other lawful purposes.
 
The success of anti-hunting groups in passing legislation last year which bans the use of dogs for hunting bears and bobcats has further encouraged them to pursue additional restrictions on hunting and hunting related activities in California again this year
 
Those who support extreme controls over firearms ownership and hunting are emboldened to attempt to pass almost everything they have had on their agendas in the past but could not get through the state legislature. They are encouraged by the Governor’s approval of recent bills in these areas and think he will sign almost any bill they send to his desk!
 
PROPOSED STATEWIDE BAN ON LEAD AMMUNITION RESURFACES
 
The Defenders of Wildlife, Audubon California, and the Humane Society of the United States have proposed legislation (AB 711, Rendon, D-Lakewood) that would ban lead ammunition in California, allegedly to prevent lead poisoning of scavengers that eat gut piles and other remains of animals that have been harvested by hunters.
 
Animal rights groups believe that passing such legislation in California would establish a precedent that could be built upon to pass similar laws across the United States eventually eliminating all lead ammunition nationwide.
 
IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT ALL HUNTERS AND OTHER LAWFUL OWNERS OF FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION IMMEDIATELY CONTACT MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE, ESPECIALLY LEGISLATORS REPRESENTING THE LEGISLATIVE DISTRICTS IN WHICH THEY LIVE, TO URGE THEM NOT TO PASS MORE ANTI-HUNTING AND ANTI-FIREARMS LEGISLATION!
 
The following is a list of priority subject areas in which proposed legislation has already been introduced, or is known to be planned by future amendments, in the current California legislative session:
  1. Extra “per bullet” taxes on ammunition sales,
  2. Ammunition buyer and ammunition purchase record keeping and registration,
  3. State issued permit requirement for a person to be able to buy any ammunition,
  4. Ammunition magazine capacity limit of 10 rounds for all semiautomatics,
  5. Lead ammunition ban statewide for any kind of hunting or shooting,
  6. Forfeiture of firearms dealers licenses for yet undefined offenses,
  7. Extension of the 10 day firearms buyer waiting period in certain cases,
  8. Ban on “bullet buttons” and similar ammunition magazine release mechanisms,
  9. Possession of firearms by prohibited persons,
  10. Mandate that new handguns must be able to recognize their owners and not allow non-authorized persons to fire them (smart guns),
  11. Expansion of the assault weapon definition to include any semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable ammunition magazine or which has a fixed magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds, and
  12. Additional restrictions and bans on gun shows. Many of these are of primary interest to hunters.
There are also several place holder “spot bills” that will be re-written later to reflect their true intended legislative purpose. A number of theses are in subject areas that could affect hunters!
 
THE FOLLOWING BILLS WILL HAVE LEGISLATIVE HEARINGS SOON.  PLEASE CONTACT MEMBERS OF THE DESIGNATED COMMITTEES AND OTHER LEGISLATORS NOW TO REQUEST THAT THEY BE OPPOSED OR SUPPORTED AS INDICATED BELOW.
 
AB 760 (Dickinson) Taxes: ammunition sales – Would impose five cents per round tax on the sales of all ammunition. For example, the tax on a 50 round box of .22s would be $2.50. Position: Opposed; Location: Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation, scheduled for hearing April 15, 2013.
 
SB 53 (de Leon) Ammunition: purchase permits Would require that a). Anyone who purchases ammunition first must obtain an annual buyer’s permit ($50) from the State Department of Justice, b). Ammunition sales could only be made in a “face to face” transaction, thus making internet and mail order ammunition sales illegal, c). Retailers would have to record personal information about the purchaser, including obtaining a signature and thumbprint, and list the brand, type, and amount of ammunition purchased for each transaction, and d). Ammunition offered for sale could not be on display in a location that is accessible to customers without the assistance of the vendor or a vendor employee. Position: Opposed; Location: Senate Committee on Public Safety.
 
SB 374 (Steinberg) Firearms: assault weapons– Would declare any semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable magazine, such as the Ruger 10/22, or that has a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, to be an assault rifle, thus banning the future sale and placing assault weapon restrictions on many popular makes and models of both rimfire and centerfire rifles commonly used for hunting, competition, target practice, firearms training, including hunter safety training, and other lawful purposes. Position: Opposed; Location: Senate Committee on Public Safety.
 
AB 711 (Rendon) Fish and wildlife: method of taking – Would ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting and other lawful purposes statewide. Position: Opposed; Location: Not yet assigned to committee.
 
AB 1230 (Donnelly) Mammals: use of dogs to pursue bears and bobcats – Would remove the current prohibition on the use of dogs to pursue bears and bobcats, and instead allow the use of one dog per hunter to hunt bears during the open deer season and more than one dog per hunter to pursue bears during the open bear season, except when it overlaps with the archery or regular deer seasons. . Position: Support; Location: Assembly Committee on Water, Parks & Wildlife.
 
PLEASE TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION! CONTACT YOUR OWN STATE LEGISLATORS AND THE MEMBERS OF THE DESIGNATED COMMITTEES TO ASK THEM TO OPPOSE OR SUPPORT THESE BILLS AS INDICATED ABOVE!!
 
THE OPPOSED BILLS WOULD DO NOTHING TO SOLVE PROBLEMS INVOLVING THE USE OF A FIREARM, BUT WOULD GREATLY INTEREFERE WITH THE USE OF FIREARMS BY LAWFUL INDIVIDUALS FOR HUNTING AND OTHER LEGAL PURPOSES!!!

Bottom line …  
 
Once again, the progressives are trying to implement gun control using the environmental backdoor – especially using junk science as a basis for banning lead bullets. Truth be told the California Condors are are already an extinct species being artificially kept alive by money-hungry researchers who have made a career out of inbreeding these birds to the point of genetic weakness.
 
Stand up for the Second Amendment.
