right to bear arms

The United States Constitution guarantees the right of its citizenry to keep and bear arms.

One of the first acts of a totalitarian society is to disarm its people. California's gun control laws only serve to disarm law abiding citizens, not criminals. We oppose any further gun control legislation and support the right of all California citizens to own and bear guns and ammunition for any lawful purpose. We call for statewide legislation setting reasonable criteria allowing law abiding citizens in California to carry concealed weapons.

 

We support the castle doctrine and allowing citizens to use deadly force to protect lives and property. We also support including all of these rights in the California constitution. Finally, we call for the elimination of waiting periods to purchase firearms and instead support complete implementation of instant background checks.
