    Here's how it works.

    Just go here: http://demandrights.com/

    Fill in your information, deselect the checkbox if you don't want to donate (no donation / purchase needed) and submit, for a message to automatically be submitted to the Governor of California and -- to get entered to win a Benelli M4 shotgun.

    Doesn't matter where you are. Head on over there now and help protect people who want to be able to exercise the 2nd Amendment in California without being harassed for it. Send the message.

    If you want to you can enter your own message, here's a suggested script:

    Governor Brown / staff, I want you to VETO these bills:

    SB 374 - Unconstitutional gun ban which would attempt to make all semiautomatic centerfire rifles, and more, illegal in California
    SB 363 - Unconstitutional. Would make it a criminal act to walk briefly away from an unloaded firearm when one is cleaning or repairing it.
    SB 755 - Unconstitutional. Proposes bans, fines, and infractions
    SB 567 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to turn any shotgun with a "smooth or rifled bore" into a destructive device
    SB 683 - Unconstitutional. Would impose a firearms safety certificate requirement even on antique and Curio and Relic long guns transfers
    SB 299 - Unconstitutional. Would criminalize law-abiding gun owners
    SB 475 - Unconstitutional. Tries to restrict firearm sales.
    AB 169 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to criminalize the act of repairing or adjusting semiautomatic handguns.
    AB 48 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to criminalize, with imprisonment and 1000$ fines, anyone who lends, buys or receives certain magazines
    AB 500 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to facilitate enforce "ammunition vendor permits", create databases on gun owners, and create more transfer delay.
    AB 170 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to make assault weapons illegal to own for any "entity" and would violate ATF trust regulations
    AB 1131 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to make five-year bans out of recommendations of psychologists who would act as State agents
    AB 180 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to make Oakland's gun laws even more strict than California's
    AB 231 - Unconstitutional. Attempts to fine and imprison gun owners who have children
    AB 711 - An unconstitutional ammo ban bill which disregards case law, provides no protection or exemption for owners of curios and relics and antiques who hunt with those firearms, and provides no area-specific nexus to its ammo requirement

    Thank you!

    Thank you!
    Also.... share this / reblog this / spread the word by whatever means seem logical to you! And if you are on twitter, follow @gunpolicy there. (It's not my account, though I recommend following / #FF (ing) @gunpolicy because this will help spread the word as well.)

    Thanks!

    In case you missed it....

    None of the gun control bills of the California Legislature have yet been signed into law by the Governor as of Monday Sept. 23, 2013 at 5:00 PM.

    However, today the Governor did approve a bill that should concern many of you.

    It was SB 568, Privacy: Internet: Minors. This bill, authored by Steinberg, one of California's most anti-gun legislators, has now been signed into law.
    What does it do, you wonder?
    Well, it tries to make California a regulator of internet content, and is written in such a way that it would "allow" the State of California to try and prosecute anyone in the world across the global internet who has content on their site that could be visible to minors.
    What is the content which the State imagines it should be able to regulate across the global internet?
    There are 19 categories:
    (1) Alcoholic beverages, as referenced in Sections 23003 to 23009, inclusive, and Section 25658.
    (2) Firearms or handguns, as referenced in Sections 16520, 16640, and 27505 of the Penal Code.
    (3) Ammunition or reloaded ammunition, as referenced in Sections 16150 and 30300 of the Penal Code.
    (4) Handgun safety certificates, as referenced in Sections 31625 and 31655 of the Penal Code.
    (5) Aerosol container of paint that is capable of defacing property, as referenced in Section 594.1 of the Penal Code.
    (6) Etching cream that is capable of defacing property, as referenced in Section 594.1 of the Penal Code.
    (7) Any tobacco, cigarette, or cigarette papers, or blunt wraps, or any other preparation of tobacco, or any other instrument or paraphernalia that is designed for the smoking or ingestion of tobacco, products prepared from tobacco, or any controlled substance, as referenced in Division 8.5 (commencing with Section 22950) and Sections 308, 308.1, 308.2, and 308.3 of the Penal Code.
    (8) BB device, as referenced in Sections 16250 and 19910 of the Penal Code.
    (9) Dangerous fireworks, as referenced in Sections 12505 and 12689 of the Health and Safety Code.
    (10) Tanning in an ultraviolet tanning device, as referenced in Sections 22702 and 22706.
    (11) Dietary supplement products containing ephedrine group alkaloids, as referenced in Section 110423.2 of the Health and Safety Code.
    (12) Tickets or shares in a lottery game, as referenced in Sections 8880.12 and 8880.52 of the Government Code.
    (13) Salvia divinorum or Salvinorin A, or any substance or material containing Salvia divinorum or Salvinorin A, as referenced in Section 379 of the Penal Code.
    (14) Body branding, as referenced in Sections 119301 and 119302 of the Health and Safety Code.
    (15) Permanent tattoo, as referenced in Sections 119301 and 119302 of the Health and Safety Code and Section 653 of the Penal Code.
    (16) Drug paraphernalia, as referenced in Section 11364.5 of the Health and Safety Code.
    (17) Electronic cigarette, as referenced in Section 119405 of the Health and Safety Code.
    (18) Obscene matter, as referenced in Section 311 of the Penal Code.
    (19) A less lethal weapon, as referenced in Sections 16780 and 19405 of the Penal Code.

    I sense lawsuits coming. Pretty soon the State of California is going to draw up a list of websites that it doesn't like and will try to prosecute website owners under this new law. Part of what will happen, quite clearly, is that people will no longer host websites in California - they'll just host them elsewhere, quite frankly, and rightly so, outside of the US jurisdiction. (I have a blog for which all of its content resides on servers completely outside of US jurisdiction, so I've already "left" the US in terms of where I am willing to have my content be hosted.) But another part of what happens is that the State is preparing to attack 2nd Amendment advocates for their 1st Amendment expression on the web, and the State of California will certainly be targeting firearm-related business websites.

    I'm not a lawyer but my initial impression to this is: Don't comply with anything the State tries to impose with respect to these digital content restrictions. The 1st Amendment trumps the State of California madness. And if you own a business that relies upon a website presence and your content is hosted on servers in the US, then consult a lawyer -- California will be trying to shut down websites soon.
