Concealed Carry and Training

Many jurisdictions require a minimum level of training and qualification in order to issue a concealed carry permit. Many do not. California requires eight hours of training which includes passing a fifteen round qualification shoot at the range. There are many good arguments for and against a mandatory training requirement. Where there is little argument […]

Independence Day

It’s the 4th of July, Independence Day. Aside from being one of the few days of the year where I have an excuse to grill burgers and dogs over charcoal, Independence Day celebrates the birth of our nation. It celebrates our declaration of independence from the tyrannical rule of King George III of England. But […]

Who Is David Chipman and Why Should You Care?

David Chipman is the Biden administration’s pick to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). As this administration is probably the most anti-Second Amendment (2A) administration the country has ever seen, it’s not surprising they would nominate a gun-control advocate to head ATF. So why should we be concerned? For those unclear […]

Governors Stand Up to the Gun-Grabber-In-Chief

The Biden administration is probably the most anti-gun administration that the country has ever seen. Joe Biden and the current Democratic party are mired in hatred. Hatred of America. Hatred of American history. Hatred of American traditions. Hatred of anyone with whom they disagree. Hatred of the Constitution in general and the Second Amendment (2A) […]

Out of the Mouths of Babes – The Best Explanation

I had another topic in mind for this week but decided on a last minute change. I posted a picture, that I found humorous, on the San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO) Facebook page. In about 24 hours the post had reached over 23,000 people, had 750 reactions, and inspired over 500 shares. Since there […]

From Boo to Boom – The Evil Ghost Gun

There’s lots of talk nowadays regarding ghost guns. Democrats threatened by anti-gun folks want to ban them. The media is driven to a spell of the vapors at the mere mention of them. One media source said ghost guns increase the risk of right wing violence, you know, the January 6th syndrome. Apparently, criminals can’t […]

The Horror of Gun Control

This article addresses a very disturbing video that illustrates the horror of gun control. The video is an example of how dangerous laws and ignorant attitudes impact real people. To be clear, gun control laws are not intended to increase public safety or to impede criminals. Gun control laws are about power and control. Gun […]

Every Woman Has Her Own Story

This is a guest post by #NotMeSD Project Manager Desiree Bergman. Imagine a typical evening trip to the grocery store.  As you are loading groceries into your car, someone comes up from behind you and begins to drag you away from your car. This scenario happens thousands of times a year across the nation.  Knowing […]

Discovering the Winchester Model 1300

Until now I’d never owned a tactical shotgun. My shotgun experience was limited to my Ithaca Model 37 Featherlight with the rhubarb bead. My parents bought me the gun when I was in my early teens. I used it to hunt rabbits, birds and other small game with my friends and some of my cousins […]
