California Gun Owners Working To “Veto Gunmageddon”

posted on September 9, 2016

Gunmageddon is coming to California, but gun owners are working hard to have their say about it. With half a dozen restrictive gun laws signed by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this year and scheduled to take effect in 2017, San Diego businessman Barry Bahrami is doing everything in his power to ensure that these laws are never enacted. He’s filed paperwork to repeal the laws and is circulating petitions to get the measures put on the ballot for a public vote this November.

With some 700 Veto Gunmageddon petitions spread across gun shops statewide, California gun owners are doing their part. “New people are coming in every day,” said a gun shop owner in Carlsbad. “They come in specifically to sign the petition once they hear about it from friends or on social media.” Promoters of the initiative are aiming to deliver 450,000 signatures to the secretary of state’s office by Sept. 29.
