The US Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, and ratified June 21, 1788.
Senate Appropriations Committee
Dear Senator Steinburg,
Please consider the following.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed was adopted on December 15, 1791.
Sen. Steinberg speaking on Global Warming
We as a Nation must follow the US Constitution. Especially, elected officials as yourself. Unfortunately, the reverse is true. It is the elected and appointed public employees that are most at fault in ignoring the Constitution or making laws, rules and regulations that diminish or cause some guarantees to be useless to void.
Rather than place more restrictions on the right of self-defense for law-abiding Californians, you the public employee legislator, should take steps to ensure that all citizens of the State of California are treated equally by enacting a statewide “shall-issue” Right-to-Carry law, with clear standards for the issuance of a carry permit that all counties must follow. It is your duty to uphold the US Constitution or step down without any further cost or burden to the taxpayer.
Last, from a financial point of view Assembly Bill 144 is unconstitutional on it's face. And, will result in millions of tax dollars wasted on a long losing court battle which will only further burden our already overburdened legal system. Not to mention the waste of public employee resources regarding productive hours worked and paid.
Thank you for giving this serious matter your attention,
