Please urge Governator to Veto ammo sales restrictions

Recommended Posts

To: Cabela's California Customers

From: Cabela's Communications

Subject: California Assembly Bill 962

Date: Sept. 22, 2009

We are writing to inform you of pending legislation that will restrict purchases of handgun ammunition in California and will terminate our ability to service your needs for certain products.

On Friday, Sept. 11, the California Assembly passed Assembly Bill 962, by a 44-31 vote.

Among other regulations, AB 962 would:

• Ban all mail-order and Internet sales of handgun ammunition.

• Prohibit the retail sale, the offer for sale or the display of handgun ammunition in a

manner that allows ammunition to be accessible to a purchaser without assistance of a

vendor or employee.

• Require that the delivery or transfer of ownership of handgun ammunition occur in a

face-to-face transaction, with the deliverer or transferor being provided bona fide

evidence of identity of the purchaser or other transferee.

That evidence of identity, which must be legibly recorded at the time of delivery, includes:

• The right thumbprint of the purchaser or transferee.

• The date of the sale or other transaction..

• The purchaser's or transferee's driver's license or other identification number and the

state in which it was issued.

• The brand, type and amount of ammunition sold or otherwise transferred.

• The purchaser's or transferee's signature.

• The name of the salesperson who processed the sale or other transaction.

• The purchaser's or transferee's full residential address and telephone number.

• The purchaser's or transferee's date of birth.

The bill is on the desk of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, where it awaits his consideration. He will have until Oct. 11 to sign or veto the bill. If he does not veto the bill, it will become law.

If you wish to comment on AB 962, you may contact Gov. Schwarzenegger by phone at (916) 445-2841, or via fax at (916) 558-3160. To e-mail Gov. Schwarzenegger, visit

We encourage all Cabela's customers who participate in the shooting sports to contact Gov. Schwarzenegger to voice their opposition to this initiative, which will limit your opportunities to shop with Cabela's, and will restrict the sale of handgun ammunition everywhere in California.

What complete utter rubbish. I think it's time to open an ammo store just outside the state on a major freeway.

I have no problem with this being here personally. It could go to TS but may not be seen by Californians. I never really go there:excuseme:

I have a feeling the "Gubenator" will sign a lot of lame BS bills (or ignore them) before he hits the road.

This is all about government intervention in business and our personal lives. Very much simillar to the grabbing of public lands and telling us we cannot use them. Ahhhh......flame away

Hell no, Wayne. Don't delete this post. It falls so closely into the category of personal rights that we are losing, maybe it will wake some folks up.

A guy with a funny moustache took the guns away from a foreign country in the 30's...and, well...the rest is history.

Just my $.02.

Sir,

I am firmly against the current AB (962) in for your signature.

As an American I discourage the legislation against controls associated with the availability of ammunition.

I urge you to please send a clear an unalienable American rights message to the house.

Thank-you,

Robert (last Name)

It's that easy. Debate over. Stand for American or stand out of the way.

I don't have guns, and yes i am leaving. But i think i was more curious why this isn't in general discussion. I guess its hard to categorize this thread because its California specific, but doesn't pertain to dirtbiking at all.

:busted: Then dont click the link. Whats your problem if you dont like the content of the thread go read something else.....do you control your mouse or does your mouse control you:bonk:

Gun History

After reading the following historical facts, read the part about Switzerland-- twice.

1911:

Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million

Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1929: the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20

million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up & exterminated.

1938: Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

1935: China established gun control.. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1956: Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million

educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1964: Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000

Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1970: Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000

Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

That’s 56 million people exterminated--just this Century--because of gun control!

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians

disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,

gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizen!

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them

of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens.' Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade the American mainland—

because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message

to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more

important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!

SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT ISSUES a RIFLE to EVERY ADULT MALE!

SWITZERLAND has the LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE of any

CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

IT'S A NO BRAINER!

DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS

IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

Just think how powerful our government is getting!

They think these other countries just didn't do it right.

Learn from history.
