rc, I'm merging your two threads, since both are about California ballot initiatives.

There was an attempt to put the RKBA into the state constitution, that should be looked at again. IIRC the voters of Nebraska did it a few years ago,

I don't disagree that an initiative putting the right to keep and bear arms into California law would be great to get on the ballot but I think right now the issue is sending a clear message to Sacramento that the government is out of control and the people won't stand for this anymore. If we go for everything all at once we'll lose just like the liberals if they tried to get everything they want all at once. I hope there are enough California readers on The Firing Line that will help gather the signatures needed for the next step. If we sit on our hands and allow the libs to prevail, they will continue infringing on our rights. We may not be able to reverse current laws but we may be able to stop the progressive gun control agenda.

Looks as though action is being taken.

It's up to registered voters in the state now.

Does anyone have more contact information for this petition drive. One of my local shops said he was going to get the petitions soon.
