Pay attention: This is just the beginning as Socialist agenda gains traction
The unambiguous Second Amendment is under assault by leftists, but nowhere is the attack on our constitutional right more vigorous than in what is becoming the repressive People’s Republic of California.
In 2018, the NRA partnered with its state association, the California Rifle and Pistol Association to once again sue the state, challenging the state’s restrictions on sales of ammunition.
A portion of the Safety for All Act of 2016, (scroll past the letter to read the bill) known as Proposition 63 –– which goes into full effect in July 2019 ––requires a background check to buy ammunition. Retailers will be legally obligated to log the amount of ammo gun owners purchase. That record will then be sent to a Justice Department database.
At the time, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome, a co-author of Prop 63, responded to the lawsuit by stating, “California voters made their decision loud and clear that guns and ammo do not belong in the hands of dangerous individuals,” a disingenuous way of characterizing law-abiding gun owners. Using more honest language, he also declared, the state “would fight the NRA every step of the way.” Newsome is now the governor. He blames everyone but the lax sanctuary city policies he has endorsed and presided over.
A lawsuit was filed by Kim Rhode, six-time Olympic medal winning shooter who set a record winning her first gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games five days after her 17th birthday. She has been joined in her legal action by gun retailers across the nation.
A court-ordered temporary injunction has blocked portions of the law from taking effect, including a clause which makes large-capacity magazine possession a misdemeanor.
The Democrats are doing all they can to suppress our rights. The NRA stands as a bulwark in maintaining our freedoms.
