AMMO TAX - 10 cents a round!
PREPARE TO LOSE MORE RIGHTS
A million things run through my head and I could wirte forever, but
let's get down to the DIRT! Unless you plan on turning in your guns
in 10 years (OR LESS!) I need you to take a little time out and write
I got an email from Jeff Greene at Ray Haynes' office that AB992, the
10-CENT PER ROUND AMMO "FEE" (now called
a fee so they can pass it with fewer votes!) made it out of the Public
Safety Committee (PSC). Last session Perata tried to get a 5-CENT TAX
through committee and it died because they all laughed at him. So how
the HELL did this bill make it out of committee!??!?
Frankly, we just haven't been paying enough ATTENTION or spending enough
time writing letters, etc. So NOW, instead of having to write about
9 letters to members of the PSC, we have to write a crapload more letters
if we want this idiotic legislation to fail.
How many MORE times are YOU going to go out shooting if a box of 45
caliber target loads cost $17 instead of $12?
And how many times are you going to take your children and their
best friend out plinking if a brick of 22 ammo costs you 60 BUCKS instead
Ya know, if awful tough enough running a gun store at the margins we're
able to get ALREADY. But even though there is very little money in ammo
(guns too for that matter!), EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS. If I sell 50 boxes
of ammo and make $2 on each box, it's a hell of a lot better than making
than making $2 on NONE. And that is exactly what is going to happen
if this law survives. Frankly, OUR SURVIVAL AS A GUN STORE IN Kalifornia
DEPENDS ON YOU - THE GUN OWNER. We know that. You need to know that.
If the small gun shops go down, I'll say it again - you will have VERY
FEW choices on where you get your shooting supplies. We like it here,
REALLY. But WE CAN'T STAY IF WE CAN'T PAY OUR BILLS.
Ammo for guns is like OIL for your car. YOU NEED IT TO RUN. That is
why you'll find ammo here at low prices ALL THE TIME - not just when
there's a sale. But when the price of ammo increases 60% or MORE, just
how much are you going to buy?
And don't think "Oh, I'll just reload my own ammo." There
are sure to be "FEES" on ALL of the reloading components too.
They'll get you comin' and goin' - I think you know that.
So please - and sorry for all the YELLING, but I am WAY pissed off at
the way this state is going to hell in a hand basket - fire up your
word processor and send some letters out. Below are names and numbers
of the Health Committee members. Please send faxes ASAP as the bill
will be heard next week. Title the page "PLEASE OPPOSE AB992"
and explain to them why such a fee will not help reduce crime and that
is shifts the burden of paying for crime-related expenses to the law
abiding citizen. You can elaborate from there.
If you only send one letter to each person, then FAX IT TO THE FAX NUMBER
WITH THE (916) AREA CODE. If you are only able to send a few faxes -
START FROM THE TOP, with faxes to the CHAIR and VICE CHAIR of the committee
(these should specifically address the committee member by name). Try
to send as many as possible. If you have to, type out ONE letter and
fax it to each member WITHOUT addressing the individual names.

50 CAL BAN
Next week the Public Safety committee will also consider AB 50, the
50 caliber ban which will classify BOTH 50 caliber rifles AND the ammunition
as destructive devices, thereby banning their sale to law abiding citizens.
Contact the PSC members ASAP by sending them faxes. Their information
50 caliber rifles ahve never been used in a crime. THey weigh too damn
much for some gangbanger to hump one into a 7-11 and rob the joint.
They cost anywhere form $2200 to $10,000 and are NOT the choice of criminals
OR terrorists ans the anti-gunners would have you believe. Even if you
don't OWN a 50 and NEVER WANT TO, we need you to contact legislators
now. They is a fight for our liberty - our freedom - our RIGHT TO KEEP
AND BEAR ARMS. We pay the salaries fo these people - IT'S TIME FOR THEM
TO DO WHAT WE WANT THEM TO DO.
No more of this "silent majority"
CRAP!! We need to stand up and be HEARD WHEN WE SPEAK!!!! If you want
to preserve freedom for your children and their children too, then do
this NOW. For them. Don't wait. Please... start writing now.
