As Democrats plunge leftward, they push moderates and Hispanics to the right

Eric Bartl Undesignated 3 Comments

In early 2021 I reported the details of an Antifa riot in Pacific Beach on January 9, 2021. Masked militants attacked at least 16 innocent victims. You’d think such an incident would receive universal condemnation from the media, politicians of both parties and even liberal political activists. But the media gave a watered-down characterization of Antifa’s violence and fabricated a …

Recommendation for Upcoming Judical Election By Judge Joe Brannigan At this time of year, many complain about the lack of information pertaining to candidates for judge.

San Diego County Gun Owners Undesignated 1 Comment

I recently posted an article discussing the reasons SDCGO rejected John Hemmerling as a candidate for San Diego County Sheriff.  You can read the many policy issues we have with Hemmerling HERE. Our vetting process led SDCGO to proudly endorse Undersheriff Kelly Martinez for San Diego County Sheriff. Here’s why. I met Kelly Martinez after she was promoted to Undersheriff, …

Busy Day for Health

Among these were two bills that I introduced, Assembly Bills 2818 and 2768.  AB 2818 will ultimately …

Fentanyl Crisis Grows Due to Liberal Policies

Assemblymember Marie Waldron Assemblymember Marie Waldron 1 Comment

Last November the Centers for Disease Control reported over 100,000 overdose deaths in the United States, a new record. This represents a 30% increase over the previous year, a number driven by fentanyl and related substances. 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin, fentanyl is a deadly scourge.

A Ray of Hope for California – SB906 dies in committee. The bill was too much even for California legislators.

San Diego County Gun Owners San Diego County Gun Owners Leave a Comment

Miracle of miracles! The politicians in Sacramento finally produced a bill that was so grotesque that even they could not pass it. We’re referring to SB906, the proposed legislation that would have required parents to disclose information concerning their gun ownership to their children’s school. The bill died in committee last week. I wrote about SB906 here. SB906 was proposed …

Republicans vs. Democrats on the Second Amendment

San Diego County Gun Owners John McCann, San Diego County Gun Owners Leave a Comment

The 2022 primary is fairly routine in San Diego with one giant exception.  It is generally accepted that the Republicans are the party of the Second Amendment, and the Democrats aren’t.  The Democrats have earned their reputation, considering the origin of most of the horribly restrictive gun laws in California. The Republican Party, however, hasn’t done nearly as much to earn their …

Parents, Guns, and Schools – SB906 would require parents that own guns to disclose that information to their children’s school administrators. Is it any of their business?

Here’s yet another great, constitutionally sound idea from our wise and good politicians in Sacramento that will certainly increase public safety and decrease crime.
