CALL TO ACTION!!
Don't Let San Diego City Council
Tell You What To Do In Your Own Home!
The San Diego City Council is, again, putting their jobs aside to instead make it more difficult for a gun owner to protect her life, and easier for gun owners to be arrested for normal activity.
In short, the Safe Storage of Firearms ordinance dictates that your firearm must be stored in a safe or rendered inoperable by a trigger lock, unless it is in your immediate control. If passed, everyone who lives in San Diego will have to store their firearm inoperable or be arrested.
Clearly, this flies in the face of
Heller v. D.C.
so why should we be worried? Lawyers will fix this, right?
Not so fast. In Jackson v. San Francisco, the 9th Circuit ruled that this ordinance is legal and different from Heller v. D.C. When they tried to appeal this to the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case at that time.
The Public Safety Committee met last month, and SDCGO members and staff were there to voice their opposition. However, it got the votes it needed to move to the full City Council.
Now we need YOU to show up and tell the City Council why arresting you and taking your gun away is wrong.
Please mark your calendar and show up on
July 15th at 2pm
at San Diego's City Hall and voice your opposition for this overreaching and dangerous law.
Monday, July 15, 2019 at 2:00 P.M.
City Administration Building
202 “C” Street, 12th Floor
San Diego, CA 92101
Those who wish to speak should be residents of the City of San Diego, or representatives of organizations with members in the City of San Diego.
Ask your boss for the afternoon off, clear your schedule, and make sure your voice is heard.
San Diego County Gun Owners PAC Calls for Resigning, Replacement of Del Mar Fairgrounds Board
In the wake of the deaths of children and thoroughbred race horses at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, as well as violence at a rap artist’s concert and a federal judge’s injunction on the violation of San Diegans' First Amendment rights, the San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO), a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights, is calling for the resignation and replacement of all members of the Del Mar Fairgrounds board of directors.
“The time is up for asking how the board will fix their many problems. Instead, it is time for a new board,” said Michael Schwartz, SDCGO executive director. “San Diego County Gun Owners is calling on Gov. Gavin Newsom to replace every member of the Board of Directors of the 22nd District Agricultural Association for the safety and welfare of our community.

Are you A Lady Who Wants 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!

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 wait 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.
