Greetings from California to all you Black Man With A Gun faithfuls. It’s no secret that the state of California is not friendly to the 2nd Amendment (nor any civil rights apart from those that are dear to left wing politicos). However, this past week, the CA legislature, dominated by the Democrats, has openly declared war on all law abiding gun owners in our state. It would take an essay or a novelette to document the entire slew of proposed legislation that we face, so for brevity’s sake, I’ll link a call to action from one of our newest 2nd Amendment advocacy groups in CA so you can see what we’re facing:
I’m sure none of you are surprised by what you’ve seen here and you’re wondering why state the obvious. It is my hope that with the help of Gunmovement and other grass roots, gun rights activity, we can educate and inform all Californians as well as those fortunate enough to live in free America, just what these politicians purport to be doing in our name. Far too many of our citizens, gun owners and non gun owners alike, have very little knowledge of the activity that takes place in our state capital. Others don’t consider the long term ramifications of apathy or an every man for himself attitude.
I know many will just advise that we abandon ship and move to a place that actually respects the Bill of Rights. I find that piece of advice unacceptable. First, I love this state that I live in despite the twisted and corrupt politics. I lived here long before these would be rulers infected us with their insanity, so I’m not inclined to just hand them my home on a silver platter. Second, we are not completely lost. Many gun owners are waking up and many new groups have risen up to the challenge of defending our 2nd Amendment heritage.
So why tell you all this when it’s clear we’re facing an uphill battle? To let you know that we’re on the frontlines of this cultural, ideological and political war and the like any good fighting force, we’re only as strong as the support we receive back home. It is my hope that you’d support us in spirit, morale and, for those of you so inclined, financially by lending your support to the organizations that are fighting for us, and in the long term, for all of you as well. I’d like to introduce you to two organizations which have been working diligently against these civil rights crushing efforts:
The NRA-ILA has also made the commitment to keep all funds donated by Californians in California, to fight the never ending onslaught of our would-be rulers.
While all appears bleak, we are hardly finished or done in California and I hope that, rather than being depressed by our seemingly desperate plight, you are encouraged to be more involved so that your home state will never become infected by this disease hopolophobic fascism. Remember, once a plague of locusts has finished ravaging an area it moves on. We’ll do our best here to stop them, but I don’t think anyone has the luxury of sitting back and watching from the sidelines.
