Assemblyman Travis Allen Opposes 2nd Amendment Restrictions

In the face of intrusive gun legislation, Assemblyman Allen is available for comment on the importance of protecting citizens’ rights

Who:      Assemblyman Travis Allen, 72nd Assembly District

What:     Today, legislation regarding the regulation of firearms is being discussed and voted upon on the California Assembly Floor.  Assemblyman Travis Allen, representing California’s 72nd Assembly District, opposes all legislation that places unjust restrictions on law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to reduce violent crime and address the real problems facing our society.

“California already has the strictest gun laws in the nation. The simple truth is that criminals will violate any law in pursuit of their criminal acts. San Bernardino is a sobering reminder of this stark reality. These new pieces of proposed legislation will not make California safer. What they would do is make it more difficult for good law abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families. Our second amendment rights are clear. We have the right to bear arms, both in our defense and in the defense of others. These proposed “gun restriction” laws are an unconstitutional taking of our rights, and will make all Californians less safe, whether you choose to own a gun or not.”

When:     June 30, 2016
