A Victory In The US Senate, But Anti-Gun Bills Still Threaten California
Thanks to your flood of calls, letters, faxes, and emails, the federal “assault weapon” ban, magazine capacity restrictions, and national firearms registration were soundly defeated in the US Senate. It’s not likely these will be revived in the current Congress, although we still need to keep an eye on Washington.
Meanwhile, here in California there are dozens of anti-gun bills still moving through the Assembly and Senate.
The Gopher Flats Sportsmen’s Club (GFSC)
The GFSC is a great place to shoot Trap, Skeet, Practical Pistol, Rimfire Steel, and High-Power Rifle matches in an safe and enjoyable environment. The fourth Saturday of each month is a day of organized matches, informal target shoots, and a club barbeque.
Practical Pistol: On the fourth Sunday of each month, the Southwest Pistol League and GFSC present a USPSA Practical Pistol Match that’s open to the public. For semi-auto and revolver fans with a taste for running and gunning, this is the chance to experience the thrill of action pistol shooting.
High-Power Rifle: On the fourth Sunday of odd-numbered months, GFSC hosts an NRA-Style National Match format rifle match. Bring out the old battle rifles, iron sights, and leather slings. This is precision shooting the NRA way.
Rimfire Steel: On the fourth Saturday of each month, GFSC offers a steel target shoot for .22 handguns and rifles of all types. Even those with no previous shooting experience can join the rimfire shooters for their first exposure to shooting.
Trap and Skeet: For retirees, the idle rich, and anyone lucky enough to have a day off from work, there’s weekday morning trap. For daytime worker-bees and those who enjoy sleeping-in, there’s evening Trap and Skeet. And, on the fourth Saturday of each month, there’s all the Trap you can stand. Bring lots of shells and an appetite for lunch!
As expected, the Governor signed SB 140 into law. This robs the Dealer’s Record Of Sale (DROS) fund that firearms purchasers pay into for their mandatory background check. Once grabbed, the funds will be used by the vehemently anti-gun Attorney General to fund seizures of legally-owned firearms from anyone added to the list of those not allowed to own firearms. On the surface, it seems like a good idea. But, this will deplete the DROS fund and force the DOJ to add an even higher fee to every firearms purchase. The California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) and the NRA have filed a lawsuit to strike this law from the books. To help fund this suit, please contribute whatever you can to the CRPA. Thanks!
David Mamet is a Hollywood Screen Writer and Director best known for the fims “Glengarry Glen Ross”, “The Untouchables”, “Hannibal”, and “Ronin”. As a Show Business insider, you’d expect him to be a card-carrying member of the celebrity anti-gun crowd. But, as a Show Business insider himself, GFSC member Mike Farrow has worked with David Mamet and knows him to be a former competitive shooter. So, it wasn’t surprising to Mike, that not long after the Connecticut school shootings, David Mamet published his perspective on guns: Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm
You can hear more about David Mamet’s shooting career in the Downrange Radio audio podcast episode 313.
Being a gun guy or gal these days, it’s easy to imagine the country overrun by rampaging mobs of left-leaning, socialist, urban dwellers whose only purpose in life is to take away your guns. And, there certainly are those kinds of folk out there. But, those rampaging mobs aren’t as sizable or as prevalent as you might think. Even among the ranks of the traditionally urban, left-leaning, Democratic-party loyalists, there are unexpectedly large numbers of gun owners and supporters of the right to own guns. Here’s a surprising open letter to the Democratic party’s gun-ban crowd, from a self-professed left-leaning gun owner: Dear Gun Control Democrats…
