Legislative hearings at the Capital
 
Is anyone plan on attending these hearing this month? After all we are the local guys.

There were 3 today.

In my last job, I attended several legislative hearing, the industry I was involved with had a small local group that made it a point of attending the hearings, one person would say a small bit, and the rest of us would stand up and be recognized in support.

This is NOT happening right now, these legislators think if no one comes out to these hearings against the gun-grab laws they are trying to pass, then the public must be for these outrageous attempts to steal our 2A rights.

If someone will join me I will go, we can coordinate via PM or email.

REALLY? NO REPLIES?

I know most have to work thus no time for such an effort, I'm semi-retired so I have time, but some can help we need to get an effort going.

Legislators may live somewhere else, but they spend a lot of time in Sacramento, they need to know they can't go home or isolate themselves at the Capital and ignore those whose 2A rights they are attempting to steal or trample on.

We CAN NOT GO DOWN SILENTLY! THEY NEED TO KNOW WE WILL FIGHT THEM EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!


Here is the dates and Bills that will come up for hearings at the Capital

Yeah, sorry about that.

I read this yesterday and brought it up to the CGSSA Planning Forum as a good idea linking this thread.

Quote:

Another Calgunner brought it up and I think its a good idea.

We ought to have a Legislative contingent at the hearings for these bills being produced in Sacramento.

At a minimum some folks flying our colors up there, maybe a mobile Booth with flyers etc.
Lobby the Lobbyists, hook up with CRPA etc.

The CGSSA President Jacob answered it as a good idea and has taken action contacting the NRA and the NRA-ILA to join up with their efforts in Sacramento.

Quote:

Agreed. I have corresponded by email and will take a few steps on this idea. I will also be reaching out to NRA-ILA regional lead
Sorry about not posting followup sooner.

Like a duck on the water looking calm, there is much activity unseen here.

Thanks,

Vick

ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!

However anti-2A is a Right vs. Left Paradigm breaking issue! Not just conservatives appreciate their Constitutional 2A right, large segments of moderates, and liberals cherish those same rights.

The battle lines are drawn, the extreme progressive/liberals have showed their hand, 2A rights are not the only rights at stake, and many thinking people recognize this.

Attempting to show we oppose these egregious regulations that trample our constitutional rights is only the start! We have a 4 year battle ahead, to turn over the status quo in Sacramento, by pursing local elections to win back those Calif legislator seats necessary to overturn needless regulations and laws.

GET INVOLVED NOW! Our children and grandchildren's future depends on it.

ALL FUTURE UPDATES TO THIS THREAD OR THE LATEST INFO WILL BE POSTED IN THE THREAD "APR 15,16 HEARINGS WE MUST SHOW UP!" located in the 2nd Amendment forum
