• 2nd Amendment Foundation Issues Travel Advisory: Your Gun Rights Are No Good in California



    By AWR Hawkins

    On August 7, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) issued its first ever travel advisory warning American gun owners not to go to California unless they are willing to enter the state disarmed or risk going to jail.

    The gun rights group is “warning law-abiding armed citizens that their civil rights could be in jeopardy due to that state’s restrictive gun control laws.”

    SAF founder and executive vice president Alan Gottlieb observed:

    "The California Legislature has been out of control for years when it comes to placing restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of honest citizens. Right now, I wouldn’t suggest to any gun owner that they even travel through the state, much less to it as their final destination.

    Lawmakers in Sacramento either ignored or have forgotten that in 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court incorporated the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment in SAF’s landmark case of McDonald v. City of Chicago. The Second Amendment’s protection of the right to keep and bear arms applies to state and local governments, but they seem rather oblivious to that fact in the halls of California’s Legislature."

      I say this as a Life Member of both orgs.


      Disingenuous at best.

      Len this post is so far from the truth that you should be embarrassed to have posted it.

      The NSSF filed against MA specifically and the NRA has either filed or been party to a host of lawsuits, including several against MA. Neither are simply on the sidelines "sending scare letters"; both orgs put their money where their mouth is.

      But you know this.

      I suggest you do some research on the Heller case and some others. I was not trying to address the AG issue in particular. My info also comes from a few orgs that we're all familiar with, from talking with people that run them over the years. Again I'm not stating this based on July 20, 2016. And I never mentioned NSSF in either a positive or negative way, so you and I are discussing totally separate issues and orgs here.

      "Is the one org"

      Your rhetoric betrays you.

      Again I was looking at the national landscape, Not MA-centric. VetteGirl's post that I quoted used the words "You know drag these sick control freaks into court and restore civil rights in this country?"

      MA is a lost cause and they don't even abide by Heller or MacDonald USSC rulings, so no way I was addressing MA in my response to her post. SAF helps Comm2A and Comm2A is in the forefront of MA actions, but they don't send out scare letters (and neither does GOAL who usually isn't involved in court actions).

      Again, you aren't addressing the same things that I am.
