    STATE ROUNDUP


    http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/State/ (please click to see any updates on states not listed below.)

    CALIFORNIA:

    Vote on California Microstamping Legislation Imminent! http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3197 Assembly Bill 1471 could be voted on as soon as the Senate returns to session on Monday, August 20. Please contact your State Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to oppose AB1471. Contact information for your State Senator can be found by clicking here http://www.capwiz.com/nra/state/main...ew=myofficials.

    KANSAS:

    Shawnee County Seeking to Ban Discharge of Firearms! http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3200 Shawnee County Commissioner Shelly Buhler has introduced Home Rule Resolution HR-2007-4 to impose a ban on the discharge of firearms in the Clarhan Farms Subdivision. If passed, this legislation would prohibit the discharge of firearms throughout the subdivision. While an exemption is made for discharging a firearm for self-defense purposes, this measure would outlaw hunting on one's property, even where it is safe to do so. HR-2007-4 will be heard at the Board of County Commissioners meeting on Monday, August 20 at 9:00 am in Room B11 of the County Courthouse. Please make plans to attend this meeting and make your voice heard to protect your Second Amendment rights. If you are unable to attend please contact the County Commissioners by email by clicking here http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3200 .

    MISSOURI:

    'Missouris "Hunting Heritage Protection Act" Being Undermined! http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3180 On July 3, 2007 Governor Matt Blunt (R) signed Senate Bill 225, the "Hunting Heritage Protection Areas Act" into law. Now, NRA members are anxiously awaiting the bill's effective date of August 28. Since passage in the closing days of Missouri's regular session, the Missouri Municipal League (MML) has undermined NRA members' hard work on SB 225 by urging all cities that do not currently have restrictions on hunting and the discharge of firearms to enact such ordinances prior to the effective date of the bill. Now, the MML is also trying to influence your local Park District board to undermine SB 225! Please be sure to monitor your city government and Park District meeting and agenda announcements and alert NRA-ILA of any proposal that seeks to restrict hunting and sport shooting. Please forward any information to Kris Koenen at kkoenen@nrahq.org or (703) 267-1209.

    Hazelwood City Council Crafting New Proposal at August 21 Meeting! http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3198 The City Council of Hazelwood has signaled that it is interested in the concerns of law-abiding gun owners, hunters, and shooters, and have deferred on taking any action on the city's proposed firearms discharge and hunting ordinance. A new plan will be crafted at a "special meeting" to be held on Tuesday, August 21 at 7:30 pm at the Hazelwood East Civic Center at 8969 Dunn Road. While we hope to have addressed all the concerns with the original proposal, we are still encouraging all gun owners, sport shooters and hunters to attend the August 21 meeting.

Please attend the City Council meeting on Monday, August 20 at 6:00 pm in the Council Chambers at 520 Lawrence Ave. in Ellwood City.

    Pennsylvania PICS Shut Down for Upgrade. The Pennsylvania State Police have notified us of its intent to shut down the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) from 6:00 PM Sunday, September 2, until 12:00 noon on Thursday, September 6. While we understand and appreciate the need to upgrade the system's hardware and software, we believe any maintenance should be done during non-business hours so that it does not inconvenience or interfere with a law-abiding citizen's right to purchase a firearm. NRA is working with the Pennsylvania State Police, members of the State Legislature, and the Attorney General to resolve this matter.

    VIRGINIA:

    Goochland County Reinstates Restrictions on Recreational Shooting! http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3193 The Goochland County Board of Supervisor gave in to the County Attorney and voted to reinstate an ordinance that requires commercial shooting ranges to obtain a "Conditional Use" permit. Please contact the Goochland County Board of Supervisors and urge them to take every step necessary to ensure that any change to the zoning ordinance does not apply to private ranges. For contact information for the Goochland County Board of Supervisors, please click here http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3193 .

    You know that bill in California will only result in manufacturers REFUSING to service California at all due to the varied and numerous restrictions.

    Eventually, you wont be able to buy anything in California.

    It appears that the fanatical anti-gunners are winning after all. Since they cant ban guns...they will make it so difficult for the manufacturers that they'll run them out of there

    This brings to mind an interesting question. Does the microstamping requirement apply to law enforcement agencies? If so, California police departments may find it impossible to purchase firearms in a few years.

    Im sure it would.
    After a certain period of time, all guns sold in Ca. would have to be "Ca. Compliant". They already have a bunch of guns that cant be sold there due to the evil "assault weapons" features.

    I was under the impression that a local government couldn't trump a state law.

    I also understand the issue may be focusing on the idea of what governmental property is, such as does it extend to public areas within the municipality, eg. sidewalks, parks, and so on.

    Wonder what precipitated this move by city council???
