Each May our family is reminded of California's archaic gun laws. May is the birth month of my nephew, Duncan Anderson, who at 23, was shot to death just a flew blocks from his Cal State University Long Beach home on June 11, 1989.
AB1934 - Keep California Safe - is now in debate and needs your help to become California law. AB1934 revokes archaic laws that allow Californians to carry unloaded handguns in most public areas. If we had revoked these archaic laws before Duncan's death his full future and all his forthcoming contributions to California would not have been shot down by a thief with an openly carried gun -in this case loaded and deadly (can you tell if a gun is loaded on sight?).
What a waste of a precious and promising life. Duncan, an upper-division Cal State student studying industrial design, was very talented and had a promising career and a full life ahead of him that could have contributed richly to California's now stalled economy.
Act to protect civil society. Restore Californian's hope in a safe, fear-free future. Call/write your California congress persons. Instruct them to give their full support to AB1934 - Keep California Safe.
