Turning Point USA
invited SDCGO to Long Beach Community College to speak on gun control and why it doesn't work. We were happy to oblige with a presentation that we hope to give across the county and state. SDCGO is doing our part to fill the enormous leadership and information gap in California when it comes to the Second Amendment and college campuses are a great place to spread the word.
The college paper sent reporters to cover the event and they were very nice. One told me that they cover a lot of speakers at their college, but this was the "first time a conservative speaker has spoken".
I thought that was interesting. I would think an institution of higher learning would have a broad array of diversity when it comes to speakers. Guess not.
I also explained that SDCGO is not a "conservative" organization nor is being pro Second Amendment a "conservative" idea. Freedom, liberty, self-defense, and safety are issues we are all concerned about. It goes across party lines and is much broader than any one political philosophy. We are proud to have members who are registered Republicans, Democrats, Libertarian, not declared, Independent, and more.
Look for SDCGO to give this presentation in front of other crowds closer to you.
