Our cherished 2nd Amendment right to bear arms is under attack like never before, from every branch of government, at the federal and state level. Bills being debated currently in the Assembly would confiscate certain rifles from law-abiding citizens. Our Governor-in-Waiting Gavin Newsom would extend firearm background checks to simple ammunition purchases. Obtaining a concealed carry permit is virtually impossible in Los Angeles County. Other aggressive anti-gun bills are sure to follow.Over the years California’s liberal political elite have passed some of the nation’s toughest gun control laws, but what has that accomplished other than to frustrate the Constitutional rights of law-abiding Californians?Gun control laws do not keep guns away from gang members and other bad guys. They did not prevent the San Bernardino terrorists massacre and, unfortunately, will not save us from the next attack either. As a proud Lifetime member of the NRA, I will be a strong voice for every Californian’s 2nd Amendment rights and will fight vigorously to prevent Sacramento from diminishing them further.
