Three California gun control bills have died.
AB 1810, the long gun registration bill from Mike Feur (D), AB 1934, the open carry ban from Lori Saldana (D), and AB 2358, the ammunition vendor reporting bill from Kevin DeLeon (D) died last night.
From CRPA News and Updates, via CalGuns:
"All three of these bills posed a fundamental threat to the rights of gun owners. And there was no room for compromise any one of the bills. It was a fight down to midnight, but in the late hours of August 31, AB 1810, AB 1934, and AB 2358 were DEFEATED!
"This is a huge win for gun owners. Thank you to all members who took time to contact members of legislature and voice their strong opposition to these bills. Your collective voice was heard loud and clear at the capitol. You stoked the fire against AB 1810, AB 1934, and AB 2358 and it paid off!"
LA Anti-Establishment Examiner Charles Nichols also credits Republicans Chuck Devore, Steve Knight, Tom Berryhill and Kevin Jeffries for leadership in defeating the bills.
Good work, CA activists and all of the organizations involved, including NRA, CRPA, SAF, GOC, Responsible Citizens of California and the South Bay Open Carry Movement, and anyone I inadvertently omitted.

As some FReeper pointed out on another thread, here California is, with huge financial problems and they’re screwing around with something like this. What priorities.
I think that a few months ago, they may have passed.
The political climate is already paying off.
Except for themselves, who will be surrounded by government guns. Don Perata, the CA Senate’s king of all gun bans, himself has a concealed carry permit and carries. Doubtless he’s not the only one.
he isn’t in jail yet?
Hooray!! It seems border concerns may actually trump anti-gun hysteria in Cal.
Does anyone have the vote results for these bills? Like, how many Democrats voted for or against? And the Republican tally as well?
That is a great video.
Here’s another one
As the goa sits out another battle.
I have another motto for the goa. JOIN US. THE GOVERNMENT ACTUALLY THINKS WE DO SOMETHING
