Shining a light on the CA Assemblymembers who want to save lives and those who don't.

UPDATE: Four LIFE Act bills made it to Gov. Brown's desk (SB 374, 567, 683, 755). On October 10, 2013, Gov. Brown vetoed three of the four bills. The one bill he signed was SB 683, which makes some improvements to gun training requirements.

Legislators in Sacramento have a chance to give California the smartest, safest gun laws in the nation. The Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement (LIFE) Act is made up of six bills each based on scientifically proven strategies to reduce gun violence.(1)Each bill is 100% compliant with Supreme Court rulings on the 2nd Amendment.

The only questions are: Which California legislators will bow to pressure from right-wing gun fanatics representing a minority of Californians?(2)And which will stand up and defend California's men, women, and children from gun violence, despite the lies of the well-financed gun lobby?

Look up your Assemblymember below to see where they stand.
