Since September 11, 2001, it's been clear that terrorists who hate America will exploit our weaknesses in order to destroy us. This week, Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg exploited Americans' fear of terrorism to push their latest anti-gun proposal, and in doing so showed that they're willing to destroy other parts of the Constitution, to choke its Second Amendment.
On Tuesday, as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, Lieberman held a hearing to give Lautenberg and King the opportunity to promote their bills S.1317 and H.R.2159, to prohibit the possession of firearms by people on the FBI's "terrorist watchlist," and Lautenberg's S. 2820, to maintain records of approved instant background check transactions for a minimum of 180 days. The watchlist bills further propose that a person seeking relief in court from these new restrictions would be prevented from examining and challenging "evidence" against him, and that the judge deciding whether the person had been watchlisted for good reason be limited to summaries and redacted versions of such "evidence."
McCain, Tester, Childers, and Souder Introduce Bills to Reform D.C.'s Gun Laws: Last week, Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), and Reps. Travis Childers (D-Miss.) and Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.), introduced the "Second Amendment Enforcement Act." The Senate and House bills (S. 3265, with 14 Senate cosponsors and H.R. 5162, with 64 House co-sponsors, respectively) would eliminate several of the District's most restrictive gun control laws passed in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller.
CSU System Board Rescinds Resolution on Weapons Control Policies: Last month, we reported on a Colorado chapter of Students for Concealed Carry filing suit against Colorado State University (CSU). The suit was in response to CSU's Board of Governors banning concealed carry in February, despite an overwhelming majority vote of support for gun rights by the CSU Student Senate and support from local Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden. CSU had allowed carry for several years before the change in policy earlier this year.

STATE ROUNDUP (Please note the only items listed below are those that have had recent action. For other updates on state legislation, please go to the state legislation section at, and check each week's issue of the Grassroots Alert.)
ARIZONA: NRA-Backed Bill Advances to the Governor's Desk On Thursday, April 29, House Bill 2629 passed its final reading by a vote of 55 to 2, with three votes counted as absent. The bill now moves to Governor Jan Brewer's (R) desk for her consideration. HB 2629, as amended, was added after we learned that Mojave County was registering guns when someone would check their firearm at a government building. These government buildings were recording owner information and serial numbers of firearms. HB 2629 will make the current actions of Mohave County, and any other violating county, illegal. If, after the passage of this law, they continue to illegally register guns, it will allow a private citizen to bring suit against the county. Please contact Governor Brewer and respectfully urge her to sign HB 2629 into law. You can contact the Governor by phone, at (602) 542-4331; or you can click here to e-mail her.
CALIFORNIA: Bill to Outlaw Open Carry in California to be Considered on Wednesday, May 12 On Wednesday, May 12, the Assembly Appropriations Committee will consider Assembly Bill 1934. AB1934 is a blatant attack on the self-defense rights of law-abiding Californians. Simply put, this legislation would outlaw the open carrying of a handgun for self-defense. Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee TODAY and strongly voice your opposition to AB1934. Contact information can be found here. Also, please contact your Assembly Member in opposition to this bill. Their contact information can be found here.
Long Gun Registration Bill Still Pending Consideration On Wednesday, April 28, the Assembly Appropriations Committee met to consider Assembly Bill 1810 and Assembly Bill 2223. AB1810 was placed into the suspense file due to financial costs and will be reconsidered in the near future. Please continue checking your e-mail and for any updates on AB1810. AB1810 would establish a registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns. AB2223 would ban the use of lead shot in state wildlife management areas. AB2223 was re-scheduled for next week. Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee and Assembly members and strongly voice your opposition to AB1810 and AB2223. Contact information can be found here. Assembly contact information can be found here.
Faced with NRA/CRPA Foundation Lawsuit, Berkley Repeals Ban on Possession of Certain Semi-Automatic Rifles In response to a pre-litigation demand letter sent by lawyers for the NRA and CRPA Foundation, on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, the Berkeley City Council voted unanimously to repeal that city's ban on the possession of certain semiautomatic rifles, which had remained "on the books" as Municipal Code Section 13.47 despite being obviously preempted by state law. The repeal confirms that, contrary to the gun ban lobby's claims, there are limits to what restrictions cities can place on firearms, and that Fiscal has preemptive effect throughout California. The repeal demand letter and staff report can be read at The repeal efforts were funded by the NRA / CRPAF Legal Action Project (LAP).
