Resolution Opposing Recall of Elected California Democratic Lawmakers by Gun Lobby

13-11.04

WHEREAS, California's lawmakers have successfully, and repeatedly, balanced the Second Amendment rights of responsible gun owners in the state with the overwhelming need to reduce tragedies brought about by gun violence; and

WHEREAS, California's lawmakers have worked tirelessly to keep Californians, and our environment, safe by passing sensible and responsible gun legislation while adhering to the U.S. and California Constitutions; and

WHEREAS, conservative zealots, with the support of Tea Party Republican legislators like Assemblymember Tim Donnelly, a former border vigilante and his Party's leading anti-immigrant voice, have launched an effort to recall six members of the State Legislature's Latino Caucus.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the California Democratic Party strongly and wholeheartedly supports the six Democratic legislators and members of the Latino Caucus targeted by this unnecessary and pernicious recall effort and will defend all six from any attacks by the gun lobby and the Tea Party Republicans.
