Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! Hopefully everyone enjoyed a great Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends and violated as many of governor Newsom’s unlawful orders as possible. California gun owners may feel the current situation is bleak, but I would argue we have much for which to be thankful. Consider the following: Second Amendment (2A) related lawsuits – There …

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz 10 Comments

In one of the tightest — and most exciting — races for a San Diego County Board of Supervisors seat in history, former State Senator Joel Anderson has edged out Poway Mayor Steve Vaus by 282 votes in District 2, a mere one-tenth of one percent of the nearly 290,000 ballots cast in the contest.

San Diego County Board of Supervisors Turns Blue

William Del Pilar William Del Pilar 4 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… Upon entering local politics in 2015, I learned the San Diego County Republican Party (SDCRP) is one of California’s most successful! It’s where Republicans thrive, with the board of supervisors showcasing our dominance since the 1990s. Unsurprisingly, that’s come to a crashing end! Reading the San Diego News Desk article, “Democrat Victories in San …

Gunsite Alumni Shoot (GAS) – It’s a Family Affair

San Diego County Gun Owners Rostra General Posts, San Diego County Gun Owners Leave a Comment

As a gun owner and writer I’ve always emphasized two things: guns are more fun if you actually shoot them and every gun owner should train regularly. This past October I combined those two ideas by taking a five day intermediate pistol class at Gunsite Academy in Paulden AZ. and staying for the GAS match on day six. The Gunsite …

So What’s Next for Gun Owners?

On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of the United States. Sometime later in 2021 Kamala Harris will likely be sworn into the same office. What that means for gun owners is probably lots of bad things but possibly a couple of really good things. First the Bad The return of Robert Francis (hell yes I’ll …

The closest races in San Diego County

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz 5 Comments

Just a snapshot of some of the closest contests in the region, as the Registrar of Voter’s office continues the count, now slogging through the last 15,000 county-wide ballots, many of them provisionals that take more work to confirm: Only nine votes separate Nancy Orr and Rhea Stewart in the Cardiff schools race. But it’s the top two vote getters …

National total death rate now from all causes (including COVID-19) is BELOW the “expected total death rate”

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated 5 Comments

I can’t find a definitive study or conclusion about the effect of the coronavirus on the lost life expectancy of the people who die.  It’s something that is NOT being mentioned or considered by the press or pundits.  One early study claiming that the coronavirus cut 10 years off the average infected dead person’s life has been totally debunked.  But …

The surprisingly GOOD news in the California election results

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated Leave a Comment

In the midst of this California blue wave debacle, I found some remarkably GOOD news.  Mind you, I’m not a “good news” sort of guy. Let me be clear:  California is doomed.  I don’t expect that to change for decades, if ever. I write regularly about which states are best for fiscally sane, limited government, liberty loving Californians to flee …

Santee: The math in one close city council contest

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz 1 Comment

I realize the below doesn’t take into account registration, turnout, downrace dropoff, or other differences countywide or in Santee itself, but it’s one measurement to assess these things: Santee is about .017 the population of San Diego County. There are 135,000 ballots left to tally, countywide. Proportionally, based on a population calculation alone, that’s 2,295 ballots in Santee. One quarter …

Why Republicans Shouldn’t Skip Out on Voting in CA-53

Justin Schlaefli Justin Schlaefli 1 Comment

Recently, some friends asked my advice for the 53rd Congressional District race. With Rep. Susan Davis retiring after 20 years in Congress, the 53rd District will have a new representative come January. But, as you’ve no doubt noticed, there isn’t a Republican on the ballot. Because of California’s top-two primary, two Democrats advanced from the primary: non-profit executive Sara Jacobs …
