Those who own firearms in Calif. are being hit hard in a push to limit their Second Amendment rights.

The state’s Attorney General Kamala Harris is behind the gun confiscation push to rob citizens of their God-given rights to protect themselves.

There have been numerous reports of several Calif. citizens being improperly arrested and their firearms seized. This prompted the Roseville based gun rights group, The Calguns Foundation to issue a new warning to all gun owners in the state.

Brandon Combs, the group’s executive director and creator of the Foundation’s DOJ Watch project issued the following warning:

Gun confiscation efforts pushed by Attorney General Kamala Harris have apparently led to unconstitutional arrests of regular, non-prohibited gun owners as well as the seizure of their firearms and ammunition.

In 2013 Calif. passed the Armed Prohibited Persons System, or APPS for short, through Senate Bill 140. It was authored by state legislators which included San Diego-based senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine). The bill is said to have misappropriated $24 million from a fund designated for firearm background checks and used it on other unauthorized Department of Justice programs.

The misappropriated money is reportedly paying for APPS law enforcement actions such as raids and gun confiscation. These actions are violating law-abiding citizen’s rights. Combs said: “These frightening raids, often carried out by heavily armed DOJ agents and local law enforcement agencies, aren’t just hitting violent criminals. What a sad day it is when even elderly law-abiding people need to be on the lookout for Ms. Harris’ gun-grabbing goons.”

The Calguns Foundation suggests if gun owners are ever contacted by law enforcement officials, “be polite but prepared to exercise your rights.” If a warrant is ever served remember to don’t physically resist the officers. Then contact an attorney as soon as possible. They recommend not consenting to any search. A person is not required to volunteer information or open locked containers.

The Calguns Foundation has an ongoing effort in place to help defend gun owners from malicious and improper prosecutions. They recommend if a person is the target of gun confiscation the foundation suggests doing the following things:

  • Never consent to a search.
  • Exercise your right to remain silent.
  • Contact CGF’s Help Hotline by clicking here, or calling (800) 556-2109 which they say is open 24/7/365.
  • If you need immediate legal assistance, please contact an attorney (some firearms attorneys are listed on the CGF Help Hotline web page)
