Last month, Michael Schwartz of San Diego County Gun Owners, a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights, noted support of the gun show by local city officials.
“The letters … were from several city mayors, including Bill Wells of El Cajon, Sam Abed of Escondido, Peter Weiss of Oceanside, Jim Desmond of San Marcos and Richard Bailey of Coronado,” Schwartz said in a news release. “Additional letters were from members of local city councils throughout San Diego County, including Rob McNelis of Santee, Kristine Alessio of La Mesa, Matt Mendoza of Lemon Grove, John Masson and Mike Morasco of Escondido, Jerome Kern and Jack Feller of Oceanside, Kristal Jabara of San Marcos, Mike Diaz of Chula Vista, Chris Cate of San Diego, John Mullin of Poway and John Aguilera, Amanda Young Rigby and John Franklin of Vista.”
“I am in receipt of your letter…and want to verify that the position you have taken in your letter regarding show shows at the Del Fair Fairgrounds reflects your personal views and not those of the city as a whole,” Shewmaker was quoted as saying in his letter to the elected city officials.
