While this is not our fight, in a larger sense, it is our fight. The anti-firearm forces who want to create a disarmed Utopian society know that if they can crimp substantially the ownership and use of firearms in California, it will have a significant impact on the overall American market. Fees, penalties, arbitrary interpretations, imprisonment, annual possession taxes, inheritance suspension, and the cascade of interference that totalitarians rely upon to harass the innocent. The never-ending effort to turn America pink will never end. That's probably why they call it "never-ending".
CONTACT GOVERNOR BROWN TODAY!!
This year the California Legislature passed the most restrictive collection of anti-gun laws in decades ALL DESIGNED TO END GUN OWNERSHIP IN CALIFORNIA!!
Our last chance to stop these laws before having to spend millions to fight them in court for years is for Governor Brown to veto them. Governor Brown needs to be reminded that he has millions of constituents that are law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters and that Californians do not support outrageous anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation, like those in New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Connecticut or worse.
If we do not stop these bills NOW our children will never know the fundamental rights of self defense, hunting, self reliance and private ownership of firearms nor the freedoms this Country was founded on.
Below are the anti-gun/anti-hunting bills you need to call, fax AND e-mail and urge Governor Brown to VETO.
Governor Brown can be reached at:
Phone: (916) 445-2841
Fax: (916) 558-3160

This was forwarded from California to El Zorro and then around the Republic of Texas through the network of happy subversives here. It might be resented by Governor Moon Beam should we dabble in his zone of prerogative, but....then again....who cares here?
