Message from Our Executive Director
SDCGO Members and Supporters,

By now you have heard about the database leak by the State of California. The name, address, and age of everyone who has a California CCW was posted to a California DOJ webpage for the entire world to see.

This is completely and totally unacceptable. Whether it was incompetence or malfeasance, it is horribly offensive. We will do our part as an organization to ensure there is an investigation, people are held accountable, and appropriate lawsuits happen.

I have received more emails, texts, phone calls, and messages about this database debacle than anything ever in the history of SDCGO. We hear you, and we are just as outraged.

What can you do now?

While lawsuits and investigations are being coordinated and considered, this is a great time for you to evaluate all that you are doing to remain safe and secure against all attacks. As bad as this is, there are activities people do every day that put them at far more risk of being the victim of crime. Are you doing everything you can do to make sure you and your family stay safe?

Consider security systems and cameras at your house.
Make sure all your virus software is installed and updated.
Consult with security professionals to make sure your home, computer, and business are all protected.
Monitor your credit. One of the best ways to protect yourself from identity theft is to monitor your credit history. To obtain free copies of your credit reports from the three major credit bureaus go to https://www.annualcreditreport.com.
Consider placing a free credit freeze on your credit report. Identity thieves will not be able to open a new credit account in your name while the freeze is in place. You can place a credit freeze by contacting each of the three major credit bureaus:
Equifax: 888-766-0008
Experian: 888-397-3742
TransUnion: 800-680-7289
Place a fraud alert on your credit report. A fraud alert helps protect you against the possibility of someone opening new credit accounts in your name. A fraud alert lasts 90 days and can be renewed. To post a fraud alert on your credit file, you must contact one of the three major credit reporting agencies listed above. Keep in mind that if place a fraud alert with any one of the three major credit reporting agencies, the alert will be automatically added by the other two agencies as well.
Additional Resources. If you are a victim of identity theft, contact your local police department or sheriff’s office right away. You may also report identity theft and generate a recovery plan using the Federal Trade Commission’s website. For more information and resources visit the Attorney General’s website.
There are endless sources, articles, books, and professionals that can give you advice. Everyone’s situation is different, but the worst thing you can do is nothing. The risk of you being targeted due to this CCW data dump by the state is likely to be low, but use this as a catalyst to make sure you are doing all that you should to stay safe. If anything does happen, contact law enforcement and SDCGO immediately. We are happy to help in any way we are able.

Together, We Will Win. It is not just our motto. It is how we live. Let us know if you need help.

Thank you.

Michael A. SchwartzExecutive Director

MAJOR Civil Rights Victory in NYSRPA v. Bruen
Last week, the Supreme Court issued a ruling striking down New York State’s CCW law! Since our inception, SDCGO has made the case that carrying a firearm outside of your home for self-defense is your right. We have worked hard to make concealed carry more accessible in San Diego. Our success in San Diego was used as an example to the Supreme Court, and helped them make the right decision.

The Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen is another clear message that the right to keep and bear arms is the right of the people. It is not a second class right. It is not only for certain people. We look forward to all the positive impact this will have on public policy and the positive impact this will have on an individual’s ability to defend his or her life.
You can read the full text of the decision HERE.
You can read the Amicus Brief submitted by San Diego County Gun Owners HERE.
At this time, the “good cause” question on your CCW application can be answered with “N/A.”
We will continue to provide updates as they come in.
Gun Prom was AH-MAZING!
We were blessed to be able to celebrate and honor the Second Amendment this past Saturday at the Town & Country Hotel with over 700 guests attending!

Thank you to those who attended and HUGE thank you to our sponsors and donors.

County Votes to Sue Gun Manufacturers and Gun Shops
As if suing manufacturers for the violence committed by criminals isn’t bad enough, Supervisor Nathan Fletcher swept in at the last minute and added gun shops and gun distributors too! The Board of Supervisors has requested the county’s lawyers to examine reports from the sheriff’s office. If they see crimes committed with guns, they will look for ways to sue the manufacturer of the gun and/or the gun shop where the gun was purchased. The original proposal was bad enough; suing manufacturers for the decisions criminals make. It turned ludicrous when Fletcher, at the last second, made a motion to add gun shops and their distributors to the mix.
Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with public safety and was just an excuse to get Supervisors Fletcher and Lawson-Ramer in front of cameras. This won’t stand up in court.
So, what can you do now? Join us so we can fight back and don’t forget that Fletcher is running against SDCGO endorsed candidate Amy Reichert this November! Here is her website: https://amyforsandiego.com/
