Assault Weapons and Extended Clip Ban

Resolution Number 11-04.19

Whereas, the US Constitution guarantees the right to keep and bear arms,  at the same time we must develop reasonable laws to insure safety, responsibility, and establish practical limitations as to the availability of  assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices; and

Whereas, recent tragedy in Arizona highlights the devastation of such large capacity devices in the hands of an irresponsible individuals; and

Whereas, the laws prohibiting assault weapons, that existed for ten years have expired,

Therefore be it resolved, that the California Democratic Party urges our California Congressional Delegation to support actions which will prohibit the transfer, possession, or importation of assault weapons and extended clips, and

Therefore be it further resolved, that a copy of this resolution also be forwarded to the Democratic Members of the California State Legislature, Governor and Attorney General so that they are aware of our concerns about assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices.
