Though we lost the bill at the capitol we are not giving up. You can find the CalGuns legal opinion here:

Find and hold your legislators responsible here:

Long gun carry is still legal and so are many other ways to carry handguns if you fall in an exempted situation. Airguns may also be purchased and carried both handgun and long gun styles.

When in doubt there is locked unloaded concealed carry.

Stay tuned for updates and never compromise on our gun rights. Giving up one right will never lead to bettering others it will only open the way to greater impact against our rights.

Call to ACTION! Oppose AB 144 before the vote.

AB 144 will be heard either on a Monday or a Thursday. Soonest next week will be Thursday since there is only a Tuesday session where not enough members will be present.

This bill will be heard when all members are present to vote so it could be a week or so before that happens. DeLeon or Hancock will present AB 144 and I would anticipate that the presentations will not be fair and instead be filled with as much deception as AB 144.

It is imperative that you contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE AB 144. The time is drawing near, we need all who see this to make that call, send that fax…*BE HEARD!* The Senators need you to oppose this bill today before it hits a floor vote in the next week.

AB144 is:
1.Removing protections of the people
2.Allowing the bad guys the upper hand against law abiding citizens
3.Another chip at the rights of responsible California citizens

It is imperative that you contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE AB 144.

The language of AB 144 is back for a second consecutive year. This year it was introduced by anti-gun state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino. AB 144 is a clear demonstration of the irrational “gun-phobia” that so often drives our opponents. Anti-gun politicians in the legislature are not satisfied that law-abiding Californian’s are almost completely denied the right to carry; they also want to ban the open carrying of unloaded guns.

This bill is a knee-jerk reaction by anti-gun legislators to punish citizens for engaging in the legal act of openly carrying an unloaded handgun. In reality, the open carrying of firearms by law-abiding citizens is a result of California’s unfair concealed carry law, which allow citizens from some counties to received a permit to carry, while their neighbors in the next county are denied that basic right for political, not public safety, reasons.

Rather than place more restrictions on the right of self-defense for law-abiding Californians, the legislature should instead take steps to ensure that all citizens of the Golden State are treated equally by enacting a statewide “shall-issue” Right-to-Carry law, with clear standards for the issuance of a carry permit that all counties must follow.

Please call AND e-mail your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to OPPOSE AB 144. For contact information or help identifying your state Senator, please click HERE.

Please take a moment to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners. The state Senate needs to hear opposition on this bill from ALL Californians.
