Santee is a victim of SANDAG steamroller

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated 1 Comment

For 40+ years I’ve fought against big government and their agencies. But in all my experience, no agency came close to the systemic dishonesty and actual evil that has pervaded SANDAG for decades. It’s not just SANDAG’s current Grand Ayatollah who is the problem. For decades SANDAG has been staffed by highly paid (and pensioned) central planners who consider oppressive, …

Sometimes it seems like there’s not much good news in our Second Amendment (2A) community. That seems even more so living in California where our 2A rights are routinely oppressed and abused.

CA is now a PERMANENT blue state — for reasons few will understand

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated 7 Comments

Gavin Newsom’s lopsided victory was NOT the result of voter fraud. There was no NEED for voter fraud, though some doubtless occurred.

Welcome to second class citizenry

Those who expressed a differing opinion were spreading dangerous “misinformation.” We should be very concerned about government being the ultimate determiners of just what is misinformation and what is not.

The Case Against Bump Stocks Is About Much More Than Bump Stocks

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

In March of 2019, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) took it upon itself to make a certain firearm accessory illegal to sell or possess under penalty of fine and or imprisonment.
