AB50 goes to the Governor's desk for Signature

Now that AB50 has passed thru the legislature, it is waiting for Governor Schwarzenegger's signature. If he signs it, we're done. But if he doesn't sign it and it just sits there, it will become law in 30 days. So the only thing we can hope for is that he vetoes AB50.

But we have to do more than hope - WE MUST TAKE ACTION.

Please contact the governor and urge him to VETO AB50 (and SB1152 while you're at it). Of course all the evidence is on our side: lack of any crime committed with a 50 caliber rifle; lack of access to 50 calibers by criminals due to their price and heavy weight; reduction in revenue to the state due to loss of retail sales of 50 cals; reduction in revenue to the state due to lack of competition shooting involving sportsmend and women from other states who can no longer bring their 50 cals into the state, and; the umpteen other reason not to ban 50s, that I'm sure you are quite aware of. You can find further justification for a veto here: .

Use these facts in your letter to Arnold and maybe he will side with reason and veto this lame excuse of a law introduced out of concern for public safety. We have to keep trying. This is OUR state - we are not going anywhere. And we won't give up until the battle is over.

Please contact the governor ASAP! (A HAND-written letter would be most effective.)

Here's the plain truth from Liberty Belles (
" Greetings Liberty Belles and Beaux,

"The California legislature has completely gone off the deep-end with today's approval to ban the .50 caliber rifle, enact a registration scheme for all ammunition purchases, and [....]. These bills will do nothing to reduce crime, will create additional unnecessary costs and bureaucracy to California citizens, certain business owners, and police, and will weaken the economy ...

"It is evident that the California legislature does not care about you, your safety, your privacy, or your financial well-being. They will work against you, the law-abiding citizen, at every turn. They want to harrass you, make you jump through hoops, give up your rights, and take away your ability to defend yourself. Gun owners in California are no longer citizens, they are subjects belonging to a lesser class in the eyes of the idiotic, gun-phobic legislature.

"California's legislature, once of the best in the nation, has gone through the looking glass and now bears more resemblance to the Mad Hatter's tea party than a first world political institution. They have turned common sense and public safety on its head and are now actively working against California citizens. The California legislature wants you to either disarm or leave the state. They're calling for your surrender.

"This battle will be won or lost based on whether or not Governor Schwarzenneger vetoes the bills. Those of you who aren't willing to go down without a fight need to call and fax the Governor office AND you need to pressure your friends and family to do the same. Telephone talk radio stations and get this issue on the air. This is our last chance to defeat these bills.

"AB50 - Bans .50 caliber rifles and ammunition. This bill passed the Assembly after a "re-vote" in which certain Assembly members voted on behalf of other absent Assembly members, apparently without their knowledge or permission. (Read the full story on the main page of the Liberty Belles website).

"SB1152 - Registration on all ammunition purchases. This bill would require the disclosure of your name, address, birthdate, and fingerprint for all ammunition transactions. Records would be available to law enforcement upon request."

This is our very last chance!!! Thank you for your support and hard work!

Never give up!
