The NWTF needs your immediate help to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. in California! Please contact each below listed member of the Assembly Committee on Governmental Organization and request they oppose AB 3199. We urge you to voice your opposition to this threatening legislation. This bill would have serious negative effects on fundraising by charitable organizations in the state of California. Passage of this bill could lead to less funding for State Wildlife Areas, habitat conservation projects, and many other vital projects critical to wildlife in California.
AB 3199 (OPPOSE) – AB 3199 would prohibit firearms as raffle prizes by charitable organizations. If passed, this bill would lead to severe declines in funding for conservation in California. Many conservation organizations rely on grassroots fundraising to fulfill their missions and make a positive impact on California’s environment. All firearms “won” as raffle prizes at fundraising events are STILL required to go through the required processes of acquiring a firearm in California, including a background check and ten day waiting period. This bill does nothing to protect Californians from gun violence. The unfortunate result will be unnecessarily restricting popular fundraising opportunities for charitable organizations aimed at bettering our communities!
