All Members! Please Help Defeat Anti-Airgun Bill No more black airguns! If you enjoy shooting your Walther PPK/S or a Crosman C11, you better get used to them being ALL red or ALL blue or ALL green -- or completely clear! California State Senator Kevin de Leon thinks your black airguns are dangerous and has proposed CA Senate Bill 798 to stop you from having them. SB 798 states that all airguns MUST be painted brightly. No more black guns! Some background In December 2010, three boys were shooting their airsoft guns in a public park. It was dark, but their pistols had orange muzzles. The police confronted them and ordered them to put down their guns. Two boys complied but the third did not. He was shot and suffered severe injuries. To prevent another such occurrence, Sen. de Leon had a knee-jerk reaction and wrote SB 798 to stop EVERYONE from buying, owning or shooting black airguns. It gets worse! This new law also affects airsoft guns, which millions of people safely use for re-enactments, skirmishing and maintaining firearm proficiency. If you hate orange muzzles on your airsoft guns, what are you going to do when the ONLY airsoft guns you can buy, carry or shoot are red, blue, green or completely clear? California's Penal Code prohibits the sale and distribution of imitation firearms. BB devices, which are listed as airsoft guns and BB guns, are specifically excluded from that law. HOWEVER, SB 798 adds airsoft guns and BB guns to the list of imitation firearms that are prohibited UNLESS those guns are brightly colored. YOU are guilty Because you shoot a "BB device," Sen. de Leon thinks you're not a responsible person and must be forced to have brightly colored guns for your own protection. Basically, he's saying you're guilty by association because you shoot one of these guns! While we sympathize with the boy who was injured in last December's incident, that does not give Sen. de Leon the right to include every airsoft or BB gun owner as someone who needs the government to tell them what to do. What you can do If California passes this bill, other states will get similar bills going. Whether you live in California or elsewhere, show your support for airsoft and airgun owners everywhere. Click here to go to our facebook page to download a letter that you can send to Senator de Leon and your own California representatives about SB 798. Do it today -- tomorrow may be too late! http://e-lobbyist.co...its/text/241345 http://latimesblogs....d-shooting.html http://www.facebook....220859654597216

I was talking to a Calif. Highway Patrolman about this yesterday and he stated, "I guess the gang bangers will start painting all there AK 47's bright colors too. Just like now, most of the guns have the orange or red tipped barrel. That is so we will not shot first because we will think it is a toy gun. Then they have time to aim and fire.... then we know the gun is a real gun and start shooting back. But it could be to late for one of our officers."

I moved here 6 years ago from New England. I love the weather here and all the things that go with the warm weather. That being said, crap like this is making it harder to stay here. I'm one more tax hike from moving back. It's too bad, this state should be such a great place to live, but the lunatics in Sacramento have ruined it.

If these "Gang Bangers" dont understand "Drop the weapon" Send them home in a Body Bag. If its a water pistol and they dont get the meaning of confronting a LEO with it, Let them pay the price. Learn English or go home! Im tired of all of these stupid laws that protect everyone but legal citizens. JMO

Petitions have to be signed by a registered voter to have any bearing. Giving out your info on the the internet like that will only get you grief.

Time waits for no one--
treasure every moment you have.
