Statement on Prop 63 & Where To Go From Here
November 9, 2016 By CRPA
With the passage of seven new gun bills in July that essentially duplicated Gavin Newsom’s Proposition 63, Prop 63 became redundant. So while still opposing the initiative aggressively, the Coalition for Civil Liberties’ partners, including the NRA, shifted some of their resources to fighting the battle that mattered most. With our victory in the presidential election, successful legal challenges will now be filed against all these new ill-conceived and unconstitutional laws, and those cases will be heard by a new Supreme Court that will see these laws as the Second Amendment violations that they are.
Meanwhile, Newsom’s self-promoting initiative has caused all of the major law enforcement associations to join with the Coalition and to uniformly condemn ill-conceived gun control efforts, while prompting hundreds of thousands of law abiding California gun owners to join NRA and CRPA, and to engage politically at a level not seen in decades. Those activists are now a part of the self-defense civil rights coalition political action committee, and a grassroots activist force that anti-gun-owner politicians will have to reckon with for years to come.
All of the Coalition partners greatly appreciate the efforts of and donation from these grassroots activists. NRA and CRPA are committed to marshalling our forces and newly developed resources to defend the right to choose to own a gun for sport, or to defend your family in California.
CRPA will be distributing more information about Prop 63 and the newly passed gun laws, and the Coalition for Civil Liberties’ plans for future advocacy on behalf of California gun owners within the next few days. In the meantime, you can learn more about these laws by watching the free webinars that NRA / CRPA prepared at www.crpa/org/webinars.
