    Governor Frank Murkowski (R) has signed SB 200, the "Castle Doctrine"
    self-defense bill, into law. This bill simply states that if a criminal
    breaks into your home, your occupied vehicle, or your place of business,
    the potential victim does not have a "duty to retreat." The bill also
    provides protection from criminal prosecution and civil litigation for
    those who defend themselves from criminal attack. The "Castle Doctrine"
    bill met with overwhelming, bipartisan support, passing with a unanimous
    33-0 vote in the state house and 16-0 concurrence vote in the senate.
    Alaska joins 10 other states that signed similar legislation into law
    this legislative cycle. Congratulations, Alaska!


    Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20) has sponsored a bill that would
    cripple the rights of California's firearm owners. Simply put, Assembly
    Bill 2714 would ban the sale of ammunition through the mail or internet.
    Action is critical, as AB 2714 could be up for a vote in the Senate
    Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 27! Please contact the Senate
    Public Safety Committee today at (916) 651-4118 and ask them to vote
    "no" on AB 2714! Also, Assembly Bill 352, sponsored by Assembly Member
    Paul Koretz (D-42), legislation requiring that serial numbers, make, and
    model numbers be micro-stamped into the interior surface or internal
    working parts of all handguns produced after a certain date, is on the
    Senate floor and could be voted on at any moment. Please contact your
    Senator today and ask him or her to vote against AB 352. For more
    information on both of these bills, please visit


    HB 5192, by Representative Scott Hummel (R-93), drops the hunting age
    from 14 and 12 for big game and 12 to 10 for small game. The bill
    passed the House by a vote of 89-12 and now moves on to the desk of
    Governor Jennifer Granholm (D). The companion bill, SB 1105 by Senator
    Michelle McManus (R-35), is also headed to the Governor's desk after
    passing in the Senate by a vote of 28-9. The House "Castle Doctrine"
    package comprised of four bills, HB 5142 by Representative Tom Casperson
    (R-108), HB 5143 by Representative Rick Jones (R-71), HB 5153 by
    Representative Leslie Mortimer (R-65), and HB 5548, by Representative
    Tim Moore (R-97), is awaiting concurrence by the House. The two Senate
    "Castle Doctrine" bills, SB 1046, by Senator Alan Cropsey (R-33), and SB
    1185, by Senator Ron Jelinek (R-21), are on second reading in the House.
    All the bills listed above are expected to be up for a vote in the
    House this coming week. Please call your State Representative and ask
    him or her to support the House and Senate "Castle Doctrine" packages.

    Jersey City Update: Please immediately email, call, or fax the Mayor
    and City Council of Jersey City to voice your opposition to two new
    anti-gun ordinances scheduled for a public hearing and council vote on
    June 28. Please also attend the June 28 public hearing and make your
    voice heard! The new ordinances are replacements for ordinances that
    were defeated on June 14. Although they have been rewritten in an
    attempt to counter objections raised about the defeated ordinances, the
    new ordinances are still unacceptable and must be defeated. Ordinance #
    06-081 would ban affordable personal defense handguns by misleadingly
    labeling them as "Saturday night specials" and "junk guns." By banning
    affordable firearms, Jersey City is diminishing the self-defense rights
    of lower-income residents and discriminating against them. Ordinance #
    06-082 would ban the purchase of more than one handgun per month, and
    would leave Jersey City residents unable to defend themselves if their
    firearm requires repair or is stolen within four weeks of purchase. In
    addition to impacting Jersey City's lower income residents, these
    ordinances also violate New Jersey's pre-emption law, which prohibits
    municipalities from regulating matters already addressed by the state.
    Copies of the ordinances are available at If you wish to speak
    at the hearing, please call the Jersey City Office of the City Clerk at
    (201) 547-5150 to be placed on the speaker's list for the June 28
    meeting. Speakers are selected in sign-up order. You will not be able to
    speak unless you sign up in advance. If you don't wish to speak, please
    attend anyway and show your support. The meeting will be held on June
    28 at 6:00 p.m., at Jersey City Hall, 280 Grove Street, 2nd Floor,
    Jersey City, New Jersey 07302. If you are unable to attend, please call
    in opposition to the anti-gun ordinances by contacting Mayor Healy at
    (201) 547-5200 and the members of the Jersey City Council at (201)
    547-5204. State News: Assembly Bill 2602 will ban possession and
    purchase of any and all ammunition by anyone who does not possess a
    valid firearms purchaser identification card (NJFID), a certified copy
    of a permit to purchase a handgun, a valid permit to carry a handgun, or
    a valid New Jersey hunting license. Violators would be guilty of a
    crime of the fourth degree, which is punishable by a fine of $10,000 and
    a term of imprisonment of up to 18 months or both. The stated purpose
    of this bill is to reduce gang violence, but its greatest impact will be
    on lawful gun-owners and competitive shooters. For more information on
    how A 2602 will affect law-abiding New Jersey citizens, please use the
    "click here for alerts in your state" feature at This
    bill has already passed the Assembly and is awaiting a hearing in the
    Senate. Currently, the National Rifle Association is working together
    with many of your clubs, the New Jersey Sporting Clays Association, the
    Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, the National Shooting
    Sports Foundation, and various other organizations to oppose this bill
    in the Senate. Despite these efforts, your input is absolutely
    essential to help defeat this bill. Please contact your State Senator
    immediately and urge him or her to OPPOSE A2602! The general phone
    number for the State Legislature is (609) 292-4840. If you need help

    The General Assembly, set to wrap up the 2006 legislative session last
    night, continued to work into Friday. Nothing will be final until
    lawmakers actually recess and head back to their districts, but it is
    looking likely that gun owners and sportsmen will be happy with the
    outcome. Not a single item pushed by New Yorkers Against Gun Violence
    and passed by the notoriously anti-gun Democrat-led Assembly looks as
    though it will become law this year. As you may recall back in January,
    in an effort to deflect attention away from his unwillingness to get
    tough on cop-killers, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-64) championed
    a nine-bill package of meaningless measures which included A 673A, which
    creates the crimes of failure to store a weapon "safely" and negligent
    storage; A 2302, which would prohibit the retail sale of a handgun that
    does not contain a "child proofing" or integrated safety device; and A
    4471, which would ban the sale, use and possession of .50 caliber
    firearms. Also approved were: A 2837, which would outlaw many types of
    ammunition commonly used on shooting ranges and for safety and training
    purposes; A 2466A, which would drastically expand the state's ban on
    so-called "assault weapons"; and A 9280, which imposes criminal
    penalties and legal liability on legitimate licensed firearm dealers for
    any criminal activity that occurs after the retailer has sold the
    firearm to a qualified buyer, and would further require that the
    retailer obtain exorbitant insurance policies to pay for the actions of
    criminals. The bill would also require that retailers place all
    firearms in fireproof safes or vaults during non-business hours. More
    good news--lawmakers approved NRA-supported A 11864/S 2742A, which will
    extend the exemption provided for possession and use of a pistol or
    revolver at a pistol range for persons at least 14 years of age.
    Governor George Pataki's five-point anti-gun bill in 2000 made it
    illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to possess a handgun, but
    exempted 18 to 20-year olds while shooting on a range supervised by a
    qualified individual. Pataki's bill left many young competitive
    shooters under the age of 18 out in the cold. Please call Governor
    Pataki at (518) 474-8390 and urge him to correct his mistake and sign
    this legislation when it reaches his desk.


    The Pennsylvania State Senate is attempting to dissolve your Second
    Amendment rights by taking aim at preemption. Plainly put, SB 1241,
    sponsored by Senator LeAnna Washington (D-4), would allow the City of
    Philadelphia to usurp preemption statutes by limiting handgun purchases
    to one handgun a month. Immediate action is critical as this piece of
    legislation is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee
    at 11:30 a.m., in Room 8E-B, East Wing, on Tuesday, June 27. Please
    contact your State Senator today at (717) 787-5920 and ask him or her to
    protect your Right to Keep and Bear Arms by opposing SB 1241!


    Don't forget the 2006 Primary elections are being held Tuesday, June 27.
