California: Governor’s deadline is Sunday (10/13) for gun control bills

18 century laws

Governor Newsom must sign nine gun control bills before Sunday for them to become law. Further support from gun reform people is needed to support him against gun fanatics who will be contacting him.

The NRA sent out an alert to their members to call or email the Governor urging him to veto these bills. He needs to know that those favoring stronger gun violence protection laws are willing to make the same effort as gun proliferation supporters. We need him to sign all of these gun reform bills. We will keep you updated with the results of the Governor’s actions.

  • Assembly Bill 61 would expand the listed types of people who can initiate a “red flag” restriction. 👍
  • Assembly Bill 879 would require sales of unfinished gun parts go through a licensed dealer. 👍
