    Default Urgent Action Required: California Residents!

    Hello All,

    If you live in California, or have friends or relatives that live in this State; you need to ACT NOW!!!

    California AB 357: Amending two statewide Concealed Carry requirements.


    The concealed carry law in California could change substantially if Assembly Bill 357 is passed.
    As it stands now, the Sheriff in any California County can issue a CCW to a resident of the state if they meet certain requirements. The code affected is California Penal Code Section 12050, the guidelines for how one qualifies for a concealed carry permit.
    One of the most ambiguous and spottily applied requirements is the element of showing good cause to the Sheriff in applying for the concealed carry permit. Upon good cause is language whose interpretation can vary from Sheriff to Sheriff, and places the application at the discretion of the individual Sheriff. The concept of AB 357 is to remove that language so that, if the applicant otherwise meets all other requirements, then the permit is issued.
    AB 357 takes the ambiguity and wide latitude out of the hands of individual Sheriffs who may personally oppose concealed carry and compels the granting of the permit. In the language of the amended version contemplated, the words may issue are struck and replaced with shall issue.
    Good cause is of interest to every head of household in California. Being at the mercy of thugs is one concept, and being at the mercy of the system is to get it from both sides. In thinking it over, heads of household need to discover these truths law enforcement officers and 80 million gun owners know so that each parent or newlywed can make their best informed decision. This is the short version, the very short version.
    1. Police have no duty to protect you. If you cannot complete the request for emergency aid, if you cannot say it clearly, if the dispatcher cannot take the call, if someone cannot call for you and get through, if the assets are unavailable, if they cannot be sent, if they cannot drive fast enough, if they get a priority call, it is all the same: they don’t arrive in time. Lawsuit after lawsuit for failure to protect results in the same ruling: "Police have no duty to protect individuals from the criminal acts of others." For instance, Lynch v. N.C. DOJ and Castle Rock v. Gonzales, United State Supreme Court, 2005. This is no bash of our officers, it is often one of the first facts they mention on the subject.
    2. You can locate and complete as much training as you like in handgun use, concealed carry, close quarter operations, self-defense tactics, self-defense law, traveling armed, secure-your-weapon against takeaway attacks, and many more. What the anti-gun activists decline to mention is that such classes are available from FBI, Military, and Police instructors for private citizens. These courses are very affordable and offered throughout the year. The part the anti-gun movement forgets to mention is that law enforcement officers and gun owners are not foes, but allies.
    3. The average citizen is possessed of all legal authority to act in preventing a violent act, especially those acts which threaten them or loved ones. This authority follows the citizen wherever he or she goes. Individuals may use up to lethal force when facing grave danger; without this knowledge or the ability to respond in reasonable purpose, crime prevails and taxes our state on a scale some can barely imagine.


    AB 357 can change the entire complexion of how crime is managed in California. This does not mean settling disputes in anger as the issue has been deceitfully painted, nor does it mean vigilanteism; it means that honest people who might have been a statistic of violence – very severe violence, such as rape, mayhem, beatings or abductions (which are on the increase) – can stop grave danger like the millions of other acts of violence are interrupted by armed citizens nationwide on their own legal authority.
    Multiply this by thousands and you have a community which declares what it will no longer tolerate in crime, and summons the system to assist, and not to oppose citizen authority any longer.
    Americans may understand root canal, life insurance, unemployment, illness, calories, and home repair, but how the household will meet, manage and survive an encounter with violent crime is the most neglected area of household management.


    AB 357 can change this for the better. Learn more here.

    Please help all of the Patriots behind the lines, and those stuck in the FEMA Kamps (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, and others).

    Get the word out, get folks to call their Reps TODAY!!!!!!
    Imagine whirled peas

    Peace, Love, And Superior Firepower

    On the contrary, it is very good. Taking the ambiguity out of the California concealed carry law and turning it into a shall-issue law is very, very good.
