I sent this email to Jerry, and thought I'd make it easy to cut and paste into his inbox if you agree with the statement. http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php
I'm a citizen of rural El Dorado county and urge you to veto all gun-control bills currently circulating in the legislature (there are simply too many to list here).
Like previous bills you signed (AB144), these are unconstitutional on face value.
Citizens are working together and donating money to get Federal injunctions (2:11-cv-09916-SJO-SS) against the State for recently passed unconstitutional legislation (AB144 specifically). These resources would be better served by working *with* the State to minimize crime and violence in California. Please allow us to help you by not passing unconstitutional legislation.
California does not have the resources to pass legislation, only to have it become unenforceable by order of the Federal courts which support and defend the US Constitution.
I urge you to veto all of the following bills:
2013 SB 47 - Yee, Assault Weapons
2013 CA AB 48 - Skinner/Ammiano, Magazines
2013 CA SB 53 - Deleon/Yee Ammunition purchase permits
2013 CA SB 108 Yee Firearms: lending and residential storage
2013 CA SB 127 - Gaines Firearms prohibition mentally ill
AB 169 - Unsafe Handguns - Dickinson
AB 170 - Bradford - Assault weapons and .50 BMG rifles
AB 180 - Bonta - Ammunition.
2013 CA AB 187 Bonta Ammunition Tax
2013 CA AB 202 - Donnelly - School security: School Marshal Program
2013 CA SB 140 Leno - Amend budget to allow DROS funds for APP enforcement
Nicely worded, and Hit!
We would do better to appeal to his pragmatist and populist sensibilities, and not raise his legal hackles. You know he went to Yale law school, right? He is actually smarter than the folks on calguns think they are.
If I were him, I would not respond well to such a letter. Of course I am not the Governor and only my dog cares what I think, but that is my two cents' worth. One will get nowhere threatening him, or warning him, or giving him legal advice.
