California: NRA/CRPA-backed Pro-Gun Legislation Needs your Support Now

Contact your state Legislators Today!

Last year, the NRA and its state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) supported Senate Bill 610, a major concealed carry policy revision, and it was enacted into law.  For 2012, the NRA and CRPA are supporting the following NRA/CRPA-initiated bills:

Senate Bill 1367, introduced by state Senator Jean Fuller (R-18), would allow a concealed carry permit holder to carry concealed for self-defense while archery hunting.  California law already allows permit holders to carry concealed during firearms seasons.  SB 1367 has been assigned to the state Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee.

Senate Bill 1567, introduced by state Senator Doug La Malfa (R-4), would REDUCE the current firearms transfer waiting period from ten days to “instant” for persons licensed to carry a concealed firearm. SB 1567 is expected to be assigned to the state Senate Public Safety Committee.

Senate Bill 1569, also introduced by Senator Fuller, would REDUCE the current firearms transfer waiting period from ten days to three days. SB 1569 is expected to be assigned to the state Senate Public Safety Committee.

To pass these new pro-gun bills and defeat any anti-gun bills that we may be facing in 2012, it is critical that you start calling your state legislators in Sacramento TODAY!  We are going to need to make the maximum effort to get our pro-gun bills passed and to elect more pro-Second Amendment supports to the legislature in the upcoming elections.  Please call AND e-mail members of the state Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and urge them to SUPPORT SB 1367.  Members of the committee can be found below:
