Derek will buy a cup of coffee tomorrow for Starbucks Appreciation Day. Maybe two if he’s lucky.
California’s statute on issuing a 12050 license is primarily based on a justification, or good cause when seeking permission to legally carry concealed. In many counties, good cause cannot be as simple as self-defense. It must be one that cannot be lawfully mitigated by other means, and a situation that is deemed by the government […]
Similar to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s campaign to refer to Modern Sporting Rifles, Gene Hoffman is asking for more precise word choice regarding our firearm rights. From now on: Assault Weapon Ban (OLD) = Ban on some semi-automatic rifles (NEW) CCW permit (OLD) = License to Carry (NEW) Examples: You do not have a […]

This is an attempt to get back into the swing of blogging. New elements of life came into play and I just had to put the blog away for awhile. Things are going well, though. This past weekend, Mike of CS Tactical and I instructed our first Sacramento Co. CA CCW course. It’s been in […]
New to me. Totally different reaction compared to the Ohio cop. Still have a thing against unloaded open carry if one hasn’t applied for a CCW…
Mr. Helmke will step down as President of the Brady Center. Integrity is not a word I would associate with him. h/t Of Arms and the Law.
Almost three years ago, I wrote this post on a new job. If anyone were to ask me if I was overly optimistic during my first few months, I would have said, “Hell yes.” Nonetheless, I have a new level of appreciation for a vulnerable population of society; people who don’t or no longer have […]
Article by Bill Flax at Forbes.com. Just FYI, any international treaty shall not supersede the authority of the US Constitution [Reid v. Covert]. An armed populace represents the ultimate check and balance preventing federal encroachment. As self reliant individuals, we owe it to our neighbors to remain vigilant in defense of liberty. To paraphrase Thomas […]
Two attacks within the last few weeks. Near the corner of New Market and Town Center, the weeds stand taller than a Dodge Durango. Sacramento police officers say that’s where a man was hiding before he grabbed a female jogger from behind and began choking her Friday afternoon. Sacramento Co., CA CCW, anyone?
In California, our politicians may suck, but our gun lawyers are pretty bad ass. On Thursday, June 9, 2011, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green granted a motion in the NRA and CRPA Foundation financed case against the City of Los Angeles regarding the LAPD’s concealed weapons permit (CCW) processing and issuance policies. The […]
From Gawker, Flying over Thanksgiving? Listen to the cautionary tale of blogger “Johnny Edge,” who was sent home from the airport after refusing both the TSA nudie x-ray machine and the groin-grabbing “pat-down”—and was threatened with a $10,000 fine. More here at thepeoplesvoice.org, “If you touch my junk, I’m gonna have you arrested.”
A new California state flag. I want one. From a comment left at The Firearm Blog. The good news is that favorable case law originating from states with the worst gun laws of the nation is guaranteeing every person’s rights through incorporation.
The Calguns Foundation Team, aka steamroller, is a mass of litigation knowhow not to be toyed with. CA AB962 2009 is preempted by the FAAAA. From Gene Hoffman: Jason Davis is a rock star. Today we filed our opposition to the motion to dismiss (alternate link) in OOIDA v. Lindley. In it, we release the […]
I rarely blog about what I do, but I thought this was noteworthy. Anyway… Narrative On a routine review, a gentleman complained his firearms were taken away. No crimes were committed and a CWIC 5150 was never recorded. Nonetheless, someone thought it was a good idea to take them away without cause – for his […]
It was a half day packed with more information. Tied up loose ends and met more individuals. Checked in to see if I won an M1 Garand or a signed GRPC 2010 poster; no win. Chatted it up with Tiffany (Imptwitch), graphic designer, in San Francisco and had the best Vietnamese sandwich – ever.
