The San Jose Mercury News reported yesterday that Orange County Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva is under fire by “gun-rights activists [who] within a few weeks will be collecting petition signatures to kick several state lawmakers out of office”:
Free California, a nonprofit founded by a Republican strategist who was involved in the Colorado recalls and who is now the spokeswoman for Assemblyman Tim Donnelly’s campaign for governor, held a news conference with Donnelly and others Thursday on the steps of the state Capitol. Named as potential targets were state Sens. Norma Torres, D-Chino, and Ben Hueso, D-Chula Vista; Assemblywomen Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, and Sharon Quirk-Silva, D-Fullerton; and Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles…[the] group is picking targets who actively supported 12 gun-control bills, including SB374, which would have added all semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines to the state’s list of banned assault weapons, and AB711, which will ban lead ammunition in hunting by 2019…
Gonzalez and Quirk-Silva both issued statements saying that as mothers, they’re proud of their support for gun-safety laws that will keep their communities safer. Hueso said he stands by his voting record, “which is consistent with the views of the majority of my constituents who support common-sense changes to gun laws that do not erode Second Amendment rights.” And Torres said she has “never supported any effort to strip responsible gun owners of our Second Amendment rights.”
