Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Assembly Bill 1663 would expand the classification of assault weapons to include the M1 Carbine, Ruger Mini-14 and more…
We need YOUR HELP to fight one of the worst gun control bills that we have ever seen.
- This bill would expand the reach of California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” to ALL semi-automatic center-fire rifles with detachable magazines, regardless of if they are equipped with a “bullet button” or magazine locking device
- It would BAN your family’s heirloom rifles from WWII through the Vietnam War
- It would BAN Ruger’s Mini-14 ranch rifles and the venerable M1A— because they have a detachable magazine
We are talking about Assembly Bill 1663, authored by California Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and sponsored by gun-grabbing Attorney General Kamala Harris. It is currently being held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee due to costs, but they may let it out regardless of the price tag to implement it.
That’s why we need you to help fight AB 1663 today!
FIGHT AB 1663
Other recent attempts to expand California’s “assault weapons” ban failed passage in the Legislature or were vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown, thanks in part to a massive outpouring of opposition from the gun rights community.
Those previous measures pale in comparison, however, to AB 1663, which would ban the previously mentioned common rifles, as well as the M1 Carbine.
SAVE THE M1 CARBINE
Yes, you read that right. They are coming after the most collected and cherished rifles, and classifying them as “assault weapons.”
In fact, a couple of months ago, thousands of M1 Carbines were distributed to civilians by the U.S. Goverment through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).
But now, Assemblymember Chiu knows better than the folks running the CMP and wants to classify any M1 Carbine as an “Assault Weapon”, forcing their owners to jump through even more hoops.
You can help us stop this assault on your rights TODAY. The bill is in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and can possibly be held because of its costs. But we need you to raise your voice.
Take a minute to fill out our petition and let your voice be heard. We need you to tell Sacramento politicians ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
