Gun Buyback Program - 323 Weapons Collected
San Diego Chapter contributed $700 to the gun buy back which was organized by the Reverend Gerald Brown of United African American Ministerial Action Committee in collaboration with SDPD, the Sheriff's department and DA's office. 323 guns were collected. We talked to many people who were turning in their guns, informing them about Brady and the ASK campaign. The majority of responses were very supportive. We were at the press conference on the Thursday before to present UAMAAC with our check.

A federal appeals court in CA has struck down California's CCW rules:
The following is a statement from Jonathan Lowy, Director, Legal Action Project, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence:
"Neither history or precedent supports this aberrant, split decision that concocts a dangerous right of people to carry hidden handguns in public places to people whom law enforcement has determined that they have no good cause or qualifications to do so. The parents of Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin, whose children were killed by licensed concealed carry holders, could educate the Court about the real dangers posed by this legal error. We are hopeful that this mistake will be corrected by the entire Court."
