here's my email to the governator
I have been following the progress of two bills, AB 821 (Nava) Ridley-Tree Condor Preservation Act, and AB 1471 (Feuer) Microstamping with some alarm.
Both are examples of the use of incrementalism towards a total ban of firearms in this state.
I am not a criminal. I do not engage in criminal activities. I store my firearms in a large, heavy fireproof safe. Yet the legislators in this state continue to try to take away my 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bare firearms as though I am a crazed drug addled thug.
By using the deceptive tactics of "it's for the environment", without taking into account there are no viable alternatives, seeking to ban lead bullets is just another example of muddled uninformed State Representatives (elected to represent the entire population, not just some vocal and politically sexy segment) utilizing bogus science to force their agenda down our throats.
Regarding the microstamping bill, I can hardly believe there are those people backing this act can have law enforcement in mind. Any day of the week I can go to a shooting range and collect spent shell casings. Since I reload my ammunition, would my recycling brass now put me in danger of prosecution because brass I collect may have stamps that could be traceable to a crime? Or if my brass was collected and used, I would again be at risk.
Neither of these bills show the slightest hint of common sense. I urge you to veto both.
