Letters to the Editor Sept. 19, 2013

Call on Brown to veto unconstitutional gun bills

Recently, Colorado voters recalled two state senators responsible for forcing restrictive gun control measures onto law-abiding gun owners.

Our assemblyman, Wes Chesbro, has also voted in support of numerous gun control bills, including the onerous SB 374, which bans virtually all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns in California. Not only so-called “assault weapons,” but all semi-auto rifles and shotguns!

Chesbro also voted in support of restricting the purchase of handgun ammunition and the creation of a fingerprint database for all ammunition purchasers.

Under the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, these bills are blatantly unconstitutional. However, the gun-grabbers in Sacramento know that it will take years for the courts to rule on these matters. They are counting on eliminating these firearms before the courts can intercede.

Law-abiding gun owners must act now to protect their Second Amendment rights. SB 374 has been sent to Gov. Jerry Brown for signature. He has until Oct. 13 to veto the bill or it becomes law.

I encourage every supporter of the Second Amendment to write, fax, call, or e-mail Gov. Brown to insist he veto these unconstitutional infringements on our liberties.

We must remind our elected officials that they represent us, not the interests of their parties. Act now, or lose your constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

Dan Smith, Fort Dick
