AB 352 is to be heard on the Assembly floor tomorrow, May 19th.

Pick up those phones! Assembly Members can be reached at (916) 319‑20 (plus your 2-digit district number for the last two numbers). If you don't know your district, go to www.assembly.ca.gov/ and click on "Find My District" on the left-hand side.

I left these comments, but both my senator and assemblyman are democrats. Wouldn't it be better to talk to the republicans elsewhere?

There is absolutely no evidence that would suggest this would lead to any reduction in crime. Upon what studies did the authors base their proposal?

The cost-effectiveness of this measure was not assessed, nor were contingencies suggested should this plan have an opposite effect on crime.

Finally, wouldn't it be better to stress individual rights and responsibilities, rather than ignoring the responsibility of the criminals and trying to solve the problem by eroding the rights of the individuals that follow the law?

Anyway, let us see a pilot study before we proceed, lemming-like, into the sea.

E-mail sent. I could not believe all the idiotic laws listed at that site. It should be suggested that we elect these assembly people and then let them take a vacation for their entire term.

I am strongly opposed to all gun control measures, and either have or intend to vote against those coming before me. I've set out the worst of them below and hope that the information will be of use to you. I am a strong 2nd Amendment supporter, and will do everything I can to defeat these bills.
