From Petition Creator Brandon Combs: Tens of thousands of Californians and law-abiding people from across the United States joined together to stop Sen. Yee's horrible bill SB 249 in its tracks.

SB 249 is a MASSIVE GUN BAN and would make thousands of law-abiding California gun owners into criminals and subject hundreds of thousands of legal firearms to state-sponsored confiscation. We must STOP SB 249!

    6. URGENT: SB 249 becomes MASSIVE GUN BAN!!

      In an egregious move to ban hundreds of thousands of legal firearms and harm law-abiding California gun owners, California Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) has amended his bill SB 249 to make possession of all Bullet Button, or “maglocked”, firearms a criminal act as of July 1, 2013. Sen. Yee’s chief-of-staff, Adam Keigwin, has said that California should ban all guns, even bolt-action hunting rifles.

      Joining Senator Yee in his effort to take away hundreds of millions of dollars of currently-legal guns are co-authors Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) and Attorney General Kamala Harris.

      Explaining his support for the gun ban, Senator Steinberg told the Sacramento Bee that “no one will convince me it's anything other than a joke to say that having multiple clips and semi-automatic weapons that can shoot 100 or more bullets at a time is necessary in this state or in this country. It’s ridiculous."
