A grassroots group of concerned California citizens calling themselves Free California will be meeting at 9:30 AM on October 5 to urge Gov. Jerry Brown (D) not to sign the “most extreme gun control bills in the nation.”
The flyer announcing the meeting says the group “will cite similar Democrat Governors in similar ‘blue states’ such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who once experienced high approval ratings but have seen their…ratings plummet more than 15 points since signing strict gun control bills in their states.”
Free California is founded by GOP strategist Jennifer Kerns, who was also the spokeswoman for the highly successful recall campaigns against Democrats John Morse and Angela Giron in Colorado.
The meeting on Oct. 5 will feature Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-San Bernardino), Assemblywoman Shannon Grove (R-Central Valley), Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-San Diego), and Tim Knight, founder of the Colorado Recalls.
Free California won’t rule out “Colorado-style recall elections” should the gun control legislation be signed into law.
The meeting is in the CRP press room, 4th floor, Anaheim hotel, at 9:30 AM PT.
