The following is from the California Republican Party Platform
THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
The United States Constitution guarantees the right of its citizenry to keep and bear arms.
One of the first acts of a totalitarian regime is to disarm its people. California's gun control laws only serve to disarm law-abiding citizens, not criminals. We oppose any further gun control legislation and support the right of all California citizens to own and bear guns and ammunition for any lawful purpose. We call for statewide legislation setting reasonable criteria allowing law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons. We support an individual’s right to use deadly force to protect lives and property. We also propose amending California’s constitution to reflect all of these rights.
Finally, we call for the elimination of waiting periods to purchase firearms and instead support complete implementation of instant background checks.
