2A Gatekeeper: This Is Not Public Safety

April 24, 2018

It is obvious that Assembly Public Safety Committee Chair, Reggie Jones-Sawyer doesn’t know a thing about public safety.

Under his chairmanship, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety has voted time and again to make law abiding Californians less safe. Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer has defended convicted criminals with guns, while at the same time denying the rights of law abiding Californians to have a CCW for self-defense.

Before shouting down a “shall issue” CCW bill last week, Jones-Sawyer stated that the current “may issue” system of CCW issuance “is at perfection”. While Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer personally enjoys constant armed security, his own constituents in LA county are left defenseless by this “perfect” may issue policy. This is hypocrisy of the highest order.

This week, the Chairman has delivered yet another insult to our state’s law-abiding gun owners. Assemblywoman Catharine Baker’s AB 3064 aimed to increase sentencing for convicted felons who use firearms, and Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer has been out to kill it since the day it was assigned to his committee. When he failed to achieve the votes to silence this common-sense bill last week, he pulled it to stall for more time to ensure its demise.

Unfortunately, his efforts paid off, and on April 24th, 2018, he succeeded in stalling this bill in committee. This is a slap in the face to California gun owners, who find themselves increasingly burdened by absurd restrictions on their 2ndAmendment rights. Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer is openly favoring criminals who use guns over millions of law-abiding citizens.

Don’t let this hypocrisy go unmentioned. Contact the Assemblyman today and share your outrage over this despicable attack on our rights. Contact information for his capitol and district offices are attached below.
