Do You Oppose Handgun Licensing?

An Urgent Alert to Los Angeles Area Second Amendment Supporters:

State Senator Jack Scott (D-Burbank) is sponsoring SB 52, which would require anyone wanting to purchase or sell a handgun to obtain a license.

Come to the Million Mom March Meeting on Thursday, February 1st, 2001 at 7:00 P.M. at the North Valley Jewish Community Center:

16601 Rinaldi St.
Granada Hills, CA

State Sen. Scott's staff member, Michelle Brewer, will speak on the the regulatory aspects of SB 52, should it pass. Let her know how you stand on handgun owner licensing.

Be Polite. Be Positive. Be Firm. Be There.

For further information call: San Fernando Valley Member's Council, NRA--(818) 240-6183 or on the web at

I will be present, and hope for an opportunity to speak. You will recognize me as the only rabbi there wearing a black suit and black hat.

And here's the biting irony of this whole event:

It was at this very building where, on August 10th, 1999, Buford Furrow fired between 60 and 70 rounds into a room filled with children attending day care activities, wounding three children, a teenage girl, and a 68-year-old woman. ( And now these people with incredibly short memories are using the same building to show gun owners the next anti-gun law to be shoved down our throats!

We've been choking on more and more restrictions on our Second Amendment rights in California for long enough. If you are a gun owner and live in Los Angeles County or surrounding cities, make your presence known. I hope to meet you there!

In liberty,
Rabbi R. Mermelstein
