On Tuesday, April 19th, there will be 9 anti-gun bills heard in various committees; the most we have seen this year.
It is a phenomenon that we can only describe as GunMegeddon.
In order to survive, we need you to get on the phones, get on your keyboards and get active for the next 7 days. First up is AB 2607, by Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), which seeks to expand the scope of the recently enacted unconstitutional gun violence restraining orders.
If you don’t remember them, they cause California gun owners to face a loss of their Second Amendment gun rights and confiscation of their firearms without prior warning if a family member or law enforcement officer requests a gun violence restraining order.
That obviously wasn’t enough for the anti-gun elitists. AB 2607 allows an employer, a coworker, a mental health worker who has seen the person as a patient, or an employee of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended to file for a gun violence restraining order.
If this law were to pass, your boss, your coworkers or your anti-gun, indoctrinating professor could strip away your Second Amendment rights.
In order to stop this we need you to fight this bill today!
