How Fragile Our Rights

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

In the words of Rahm Emanuel “Never allow a crisis to go to waste”. The anti-Second Amendment folks are taking Emanuel’s words to heart. Amid the growing (and mostly manufactured) COVID-19 crisis we again see calls to restrict the Second Amendment (2A). This time the restrictions come in the form of attempts by state and local officials to “close gun …

The latest bill out of Sacramento intended to make us all safer and reduce crime is AB 3071. If you haven’t heard yet, this bill will make ammunition containing lead illegal to sell or use at any gun range in California, indoor or outdoor.

Every election season Second Amendment organizations reach out to candidates.  We send questionnaires and meeting requests and it is all an attempt to evaluate their candidacy for possible endorsement.  We want to know if they are pro Second Amendment, viable, and honorable because our next step is to communicate to our membership that support will be needed to get that …

Sweet Virginia – Part Two

San Diego County Gun Owners San Diego County Gun Owners 1 Comment

We have now completed part two of what I believe to be a three part Second Amendment saga in Virginia. Part two concluded with a very well attended and peaceful (much to the dismay of the left) pro-Second Amendment rally in Richmond. Part three will play out in 2020. The three parts break down as follows: Part One Part one …

Texas Church Shooting, Legally Armed Citizens, and Media Bias

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

Last week we saw another church shooting, this one at the West Freeway Church of Christ in the city of White Settlement, Texas. This incident was ended just six seconds after it began by an armed citizen volunteer of the church security team. Media coverage was predictable. Church shootings are an unfortunate reality in our society. There have been at …

Should You Consider Concealed Carry?

San Diego County Gun Owners Rostra General Posts, San Diego County Gun Owners 4 Comments

While working an RSO shift at the range last week I had the opportunity to speak with two gentlemen on the subject of concealed carry. One man was very interested and had permits in numerous states but not California. His buddy felt like he had no need to carry and cited several mutual friends that felt the same way. Carrying …

Progress in the Fight to End Gun Free Zones

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

Clear thinking Americans understand that the vast majority of gun control laws in place are completely ineffective regarding their stated purpose. That stated purpose is always to increase public safety and reduce crime. Many of these laws actually endanger the public. Most are unconstitutional in that they clearly “infringe” on our rights. Among the most dangerous of these laws are …

Reconsidering SCOTUS in the Fight for the Second Amendment

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

In 2017 I wrote an article questioning the wisdom of depending on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to protect the Second Amendment (2A) and the rights of gun owners in America. Over time there seemed to be too many instances where SCOTUS declined to hear a 2A case or when they did, the ruling seemed too weak. …

Sweet Virginia Under Siege by Anti-Gun Forces – Citizens Fight Back

San Diego County Gun Owners San Diego County Gun Owners 1 Comment

Funded by multimillionaire leftists, anti-gun forces have swept the elections and seized control of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

SASOs – American Normals Fight Back

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

When I first became a Second Amendment (2A) activist I remember thinking about the subject of Sanctuaries. At the time the idea of sanctuary cities, counties, and even states was gaining traction.

An old guy once told me life was too short to just own ugly Kydex holsters. From USPSA matches to concealed carry you’ll see Kydex holsters, and for good reason. Kydex holsters are popular because they work. A good holster needs to do three things. A good holster needs to securely hold the firearm. It needs to completely cover the …
