Federal Action: Call your Representative LaMalfa at 202-225-3076 (or e-mail him or fax him) to you do not support H.R. 38, which would force concealed carry in all states.  LaMalfa is a cosponsor of H.R. 38.  Please ask at least 3 friends or family members in other districts to call their Representative to oppose H.R. 38.

The number one goal for the gun lobby with the Trump Administration and Congress is National CCW Reciprocity, whereby states with strong gun laws (like California) would be forced to recognize permits to carry loaded, hidden guns in public issued by other states – even by states with virtually no standards for issuing such permits.  This bill would make states with the weakest standards into the law of the land and let criminals and other dangerous people carry concealed, loaded guns in every state.

State Action: Call Assemblymember Brian Dahle at 916-319-2001 to vote YES on A.B. 785, which would prohibit people convicted of a hate crime from purchasing or possessing a firearm for ten years.  Hate crime misdemeanor offenders are at a high risk of later committing violent crimes, so they should not have access to a firearms.  Hate and guns don't mix.
