Are Gun Shows Back??
Check out the below news stories for details, but to sum it all up, the district court judge put an injunction on the gun show ban. She agreed that banning gun shows because you don't like the "culture" is a violation of our First Amendment rights to assemble and speak.
So what now? Well...we aren't positive when or if a another gun show will happen this year at Del Mar. That decision is still being made. Crossroads still has to win in court before this decision is final and, of course, there are appeals. Stay tuned and as soon as we hear there is a gun show happening, we will get the word out.
SDCGO is proudly representing your voice in the media.

What a fun Summer Picnic!!
We had a great time at our Summer Picnic this week featuring a scavenger hunt, street tacos, and special guest Tatiana Whitlock! Thank you to Gunfighter Tactical for hosting, and Doz Gordoz Tacos for the amazing tacos! And most of all, thank you to all of our members and supporters who came out to spend time with us!!
From the Office of Assemblyman Randy Voepel...
The California Department of Justice is attacking responsible gun owners again.
Despite months-long wait times for DMV appointments, the DOJ is only giving Californians 12 days to get a REAL ID. If this new rule is adopted, otherwise law-abiding Californians without a REAL ID will get denied when purchasing a firearm or ammunition.
The Department is trying to adopt this rule on an “emergency” basis, limiting public participation and commentary to only five days. I encourage you to submit comments in opposition to this absurd proposal by this Friday, June 21 to ensure your voice is heard before the deadline.

Are you A Lady Who Want to Help?
Do You Know a Lady Who Wants to Help?
Our #NotMeSD program has earned a fantastic response! And now we need more help.
If you are a woman (or know a woman) who would like to be a NotMeSD Ambassador to help women find firearms training, purchase the right gun for them, and/or apply for their CCW, please contact us.
need to be an expert in any of these fields. You just need to have a basic knowledge, be willing to help, and are open to learning. You do not give the firearms training; rather you help them find professional training they can afford and we will show you how.
You do not consult on which gun to buy; rather you help them find a shop that will assist them in purchasing a firearm they can afford.
We have a training guide for Ambassadors and over 150 women who have reached out to us for help in getting training, finding a firearm to purchase, or want their CCW.
Now we need YOU!
Interested in helping other women? Please email NotMeSD@SDCGO.org

Good News and Bad News....
: If you call and make an appointment for your CCW, your appointment date will be almost a year from now.
: You will not have to wait that long and your appointment will be moved up.
Over the last 1 1/2 years, the Sheriff's Department has been wonderful to work with and back in January they proved that once again. When the issue of waits time was brought to their attention they acted. They re-organized their department, hired more staff, and are putting in overtime to keep up with demand. They are also implementing software to run the CCW program.
So even though the date you get might be a year out, you will only have to wait a few months until you get a phone call asking you to come in early for your first appointment.
Still waiting to apply for your CCW? Don't wait!

We get a lot of questions about where you can and cannot carry so we made a quick guide. Check it out below!
Can CCW Holders Use Normal Capacity Magazines in Their Carry Gun?
We have been hearing a lot of bad information and guessing on this question. People want to know, does the sheriff have a restriction on using a magazines that holds more than 10 rounds in their carry gun?
The answer is a CCW holder can use a normal capacity magazine in their carry gun.
We asked the sheriff to add this to their FAQ section on their CCW website so he did. You can see the screenshot on the left or check out the link below for the web page.
Please forward this to everyone you know to help us get the word out.
