    Subject: Urgent California open carry rights alert!

    California open carriers:

    Thanks to activism and emails to your California legislators LAST year, AB 1934 and open carry in the Golden state was saved - temporarily.

    Unfortunately this year California open carry rights are under attack again by way of two bills: AB 144 & SB 661. In fact AB 144 will be heard in Committee on April 12th at 9AM - it is urgent that you act now to stop these bills.

    Action Item 1: Sign the new petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/CalOCPet/petition.html

    Action Item 2: Contact your California Assembly member & Senator!
    Unlike members of the FEDERAL Congress, state legislators often get very little constituent contact. In many states merely 5 10 constituent contacts on a particular bill proves decisive as to how a legislator votes and/or influences her party caucus to pressure key committee members.

    So be part of the solution - find your YOUR California Assembly member & Senator at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html and tell BOTH of them to oppose AB 144 & SB 661!

    Suggested message:

    Subject: Oppose AB 1144 & SB 661

    Dear Assembly member [or Senator] _______:

    I urge you to oppose AB 144 & SB 661.

    These bills are aimed at making it difficult or impossible to open carry properly holstered handguns in California. Because California's concealed handgun permit program allows Sheriffs and police chiefs absolute discretion in issuance of concealed carry permits, open carry is the only way for most California citizens to carry handguns in public.

    If these bills pass, California gun owners will be forced to open carry rifles and shotguns in public places - something which remains legal under the bills. California residents deserve to retain their Second Amendment right to carry handguns, and proponents of these bills want to stomp our rights into the ground.

    And don't listen to these bills' backers' lies that their goal is to simply ensure that all open carriers are trained and licensed - if the bills' sponsors had introduced bills to establish a state wide "shall issue" open carry training and licensing program, then I would not be writing you.

    Please let me know what you are going to do regarding AB 144 & SB 661.

    Sincerely,

    YOUR NAME
    YOUR ADDRESS

    Letterhead

    I would like to add that opposition on letterhead to get registered needs a signature, title, city, state and letterhead which can even be a business card in the corner. I was able to get a few more registered. As of Tuesday there were 108 citizen oppositions on file with public safety some which were letterhead opposition but missing one or a small item.

    I am working to correct any and draw attention to all public safety members that they are not being told the whole story. It has become a game with the guy writing analysis (Greg Pegan).


    So we do not need to worry too much about which committee it is in I have included all leaders for oppositions and myself which I will follow these all the way out. If you want to oppose any other bills I am happy to deliver these by hand too if you take the time to write.
