Assembly Bill 1663 would expand the classification of assault weapons to include the M1 Carbine, Ruger Mini-14 and more…

AB 1663 – Expands “Assault Weapons” Ban, Adds “Bullet Button” Semi-Auto Firearms – Status

We need YOUR HELP to fight one of the worst gun control bills that we have ever seen.

    • This bill would expand the reach of California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” to ALL semi-automatic center-fire rifles with detachable magazines, regardless  of if they are equipped with a “bullet button” or magazine locking device
    • It would BAN your family’s heirloom rifles from WWII through the Vietnam War
  • It would BAN Ruger’s Mini-14 ranch rifles and the venerable M1A— because they have a detachable magazine

We are talking about Assembly Bill 1663, authored by California Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and sponsored by gun-grabbing Attorney General Kamala Harris.

>> FIGHT AB 1663
Other recent attempts to expand California’s “assault weapons” ban failed passage in the Legislature or were vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown, thanks in part to a massive outpouring of opposition from the gun rights community.

Those previous measures pale in comparison, however, to AB 1663, which would ban the previously mentioned common rifles, as well as the M1 Carbine.

Yes, you read that right. They are coming after the most collected and cherished rifles, and classifying them as “assault weapons.”

In fact, just last week thousands of M1 Carbines were distributed to civilians by the U.S. Goverment through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).

But now, Assemblymember Chiu knows better than the folks running the CMP and wants to classify any M1 Carbine as an “Assault Weapon”, forcing their owners to jump through even more hoops.

You can help us stop this assault on your rights TODAY. Take a minute to fill out our petition and let your voice be heard. We need you to tell Sacramento politicians ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    california has already breached the constitution which restates the natural rights guaranteed by the creator such as the right to self defense and the right to keep and bear arms unconditionally. Marbury vs Madison states the any legislation in conflict or repugnant to the constitution is null and void of law from it’s inception, not from when it may eventually be overturned. Maybe the lawyers in the legislature have already forgotten their training, or they are hoping the ignorant public will remain ignorant.
