Welcome to the San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO) new blog page. The purpose of this page is to promote discussion of issues that are of interest to gun owners not only in San Diego County but also throughout California and across America.

Red Flag Laws – The Most Dangerous of the Gun Control Laws

Most knowledgeable people (e.g. people who pay attention) understand that gun control laws don’t increase public safety or reduce crime. That’s not the intent of people that create them. Gun control is used primarily for political power and control. The end game is to completely disarm the American people. You can fill in for what […]

Violence of Mind – A Book Review

I recently read Violence of Mind by Varg Freeborn. Anyone who chooses to take responsibility for their own safety and for that of their family has an obligation to educate himself or herself. Violence of Mind offers insight into how violent predators work. That insight can be helpful to anyone interested in avoiding an encounter with such […]

The Banning of Standard Capacity Magazines – To What End?

A favorite tool of anti-second amendment (2A) politicians is the standard capacity magazine ban. Notice I didn’t say “high capacity” magazine ban. Making up definitions like “high capacity” is also a common tactic of the anti-gun crowd. Remember the extremely successful (and made-up) “assault rifle”term. A fifteen round magazine would be considered standard capacity for […]

Gun Owners: Stop Looking for a Safe Space

In December 2018, SDCGO made a fun video for Christmas about the importance of activism. The video inspired me to go deeper into why activism for the Second Amendment in California is so important. It’s important to the entire nation and not just those of us living behind enemy lines. Daily some message board or […]

How Long to National Reciprocity for Concealed Carriers?

On Wednesday December 6, 2017 the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. Because of quisling Republicans and dishonest Democrats the opportunity for this to become law was missed. There was never any debate in the Senate and thus National Reciprocity never came to be. With the Democrats taking control […]

How Safe Is Your Place of Worship?

Violence on or around faith-based properties is increasing across our country. The reasons for this increase are likely numerous and complex. Regardless of the reasons, the question needs to be asked; how safe are you and your family at your place of worship? There have been several high profile incidents in the last year or […]

Designated Defenders?

I recently read an article by Massad Ayoob regarding last week’s bar shooting in Thousand Oaks. Reports on the shooting indicate that there may have been as many as six off-duty law enforcement officers (LEO) present at the time of the shooting. Apparently none of the officers were armed. The reason the officers were unarmed […]

Dude, Where’s My Rights

The following was written by Michael Schwartz, Executive Director of San Diego County Gun Owners PAC (SDCGO). On February 7th, 2018 at 99 Rolling Oaks Drive, Thousand Oaks, California, actor Ashton Kutcher and an accomplice committed several very serious felonies involving a firearm. How do I know? Because he told the world via Twitter. Receiving a […]

The intent of the blog page is to inspire people to think about issues of interest to the general gun owning community, and by so doing, to expand knowledge […]
