California DOJ Withdraws "Assault Weapon" Registration

As I posted with a Daily Shooter video the other day, the website set up by California DOJ to allow California citizens to register "assault weapons" and "bullet button" rifles was a massive failure.  

A poorly designed government website set up to mandate that people register for something goes down due to too much traffic... gee.... sound familiar?

"The FPC and several other Grun Rights groups are suing the DOJ over the mishandling of the registration process which kept some people attempting to register their rifles from doing so by the July 1 deadline.  Also the DOJ withdraws "Assault Weapon" ban regulations from OAL."

The California DOJ had to pull their requirement for registration due to these massive failures and because of lawsuits pressed by various gun rights organizations.  While this is a win for our side, we must not get complacent, and we must remember that these leftist state and local governments will simply find a new way to infringe on our rights.

Bottom line:  when we see states and local governments trying to implement this unconstitutional gun control crap, we need to keep pressing, and we need these gun rights groups to which we are donating to make a full court press with the lawsuits.  We can win, and we must keep winning.

The Criminals Are Calling YOU a Criminal

 Join the NRA!
Mandatory "assault weapon" registration.  The government sets up a website and then mandates that you register.  Then when law-abiding citizens try to do whats mandated of them and register, the site crashes and then they can't register.  They wake up the next day as criminals.

Soldiers are serving our country overseas.  Their guns are at home with their spouse and family.  They try to register, but the site is down.  It is crashing because too many people are trying to register.  They can't access the website.  Their family does not know what to do.  They then come home from deployment and are now criminals.

Mandatory registration on a government website that crashes on when many people access it.  Sound familiar?  Well, that's a tale we are all too familiar with.  I'll complain about that another time.

This is happening in California.  But is soon coming to your state.  I agree with what The Daily Shooter mentions in the video below:  Registration is a bad idea.  I certainly won't be registering if this kind of law comes to my state.  I will use whatever loophole I can find to be legal in other ways.  This is the law in California and I expect similar laws in my state of Colorado.  These laws will spread to other states, if the gun grabbers have their way, and I fully expect that the anti-gun groups will be pressing hard to pass these laws everywhere. 

Now what makes this whole thing worse is that this same government website was set up with (in my opinion) criminally negligent practices and structure.  The data breach, unauthorized access to other people's registration information, and an unavailable website are all yet another example of feckless processes by a government who hates gun owners.






So what can WE do?!  For one thing, get out there and support your local and national gun rights groups.  Talk to your neighbors, family, and friends, and get them out to vote!  Blog, send emails, get active on social media, and write articles for your local newspapers.  Attend pro-gun rallies. Spread the truth by any means necessary.  If we can't turn this around BEFORE bad politicians become elected, then these horrible laws will be rammed down our throats and we will ourselves one day wake up to find that we are criminals.

The lunatics are running the asylum.  The criminals are holding the keys to the prison.  They pontificate about guns, lie about statistics, spool up an ignorant public, and then pass laws born of a complete lack of knowledge about firearms.  They make criminals of their citizens.  Pathetic!

Unconstitutional "Red Flag" Laws

This is why these "Red Flag" laws must be opposed at every turn: 

 "Resident snowflakes of the knee-jerk town complained that the man openly carrying made them feel uncomfortable and unsafe. I looked for and could not find anything in the open carry statutes that mentions a prohibition of making other people feel uncomfortable and unsafe." 

 It's what I've been saying all along: Some poor snowflake gets a wild hair up their ass and reports you for something just because they feel like it. 

 They see you driving down the street with NRA stickers on your car? Well, they just follow you home, find out where you live, and then fabricate some story about road rage or something. Boom! You are disarmed. 

 Your neighbor doesn't like your dog barking? Boom! Fabricate a story about you using your dog to threaten them. You are disarmed.

The way these people lie and cry about everything, they can disarm a whole nation by making stuff up when these stupid and thoughtless unconstitutional laws are in place.

The Second Amendment is second in importance only to the First!!!  Indeed, it's the Second Amendment that allows the general population to defend all the rest of them from any attempt at tyranny.

"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny."

Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789




The following is a quote from James Madison sixteen (16) months before he introduced the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1789.


"Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of."

James Madison, The Federalist No. 48, February 1, 1788

"Weapons of War" - REALLY?!

To the legions of mindless liberal lawmakers and other progressive minions who keep pontificating to us about these so-called "weapons of war" that should not be on our streets, here's the deal: The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting, and the issue of whether or not AR-15s should be in the hands of law-abiding citizens is not yours to dictate until you are successful at changing the U.S. Constitution (but you can give 'er the ole' college try...).  The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled the Second Amendment to be an individual right, and the Second Amendment itself is pretty clear: "...shall not be infringed."

Sure seems to me that we have the right to self-defense, period!  And it's not up to you to tell us what we can and cannot use for that purpose.  Like Dom says in the video below, the AR-15 is an easy weapon to use.  Well, easy for most of us, anyway  And I personally prefer to have a weapon that I can put in the hands of any friend or family member and have them vanquishing our attackers quickly.




But if we're going to debate reasons for why we need a weapon such as the AR-15, the reason we need these so-called "weapons of war" is because YOU put us at war.

YOU put us at war with the thousands of MS-13 and other gang members that you let across our border and release from our prisons every single day.
YOU put us at war with ISIS and other terrorists by your constant appeasement and putting their well being over the well being of our citizens.

YOU put us at war with a criminal element that YOU refuse to prosecute and take off of our streets.

YOU put us at war by enabling and inciting your ANTIFA goons to show up at our peaceful rallies and speaker venues to cause mayhem, destroy property, and attack our attendees.

YOU put us at war with an insane philosophy of making new gun laws, but yet you refuse to enforce the laws you already have on the books.

And YOU put us at war with YOU! By your constant meddling in our business and over-stepping your bounds, and your practice of constantly protecting criminals and referring to We The People as the enemy.

So here's a little snippet about the weapon you hate so much. I hope your head explodes watching this.

URGENT: Join The NRA Today!



Shameless commercial plug - I am an NRA Recruiter and get a commission for signing up new NRA members.  But here's the deal:  Our 2nd Amendment Rights Count On It...

We need your help!  There is no doubt that the 2018 legislative session in the state of Colorado and the nation is going to be tough on gun rights.  There is still yet a lot of work to do to save our rights and our future as gun owners.  The new gun-friendly administration has been elected, but they are under fire and being attacked by those not friendly to our rights as citizens to defend ourselves.  In fact, those wishing to take back power have even promised groups such as the "Brady Bunch" that they are will work on new gun control measures behind the scenes now and enact them once they are in power.  And unfortunately, their newly emboldened base consists of some of the most anti-gun, anti-self-defense people in history. 

But we have a strong ally:  The hard work and dedication of the professionals at the National Rifle Association will ensure that we can take the fight against draconian and excessive gun control measures to those who don't want us to defend ourselves.  Watch the short videos below about the NRA to learn more...  Then  JOIN TODAY, as we move forward in 2018 to ensure that all of us enjoy our RIGHTS for responsible gun ownership, self-defense.

My Philosophy

I believe that our Second Amendment rights afford us as law-abiding citizens the ability to own firearms, and we should be able to use the tools that we see fit to protect ourselves, our families, and our property.  The immortal and often debated meaning of the words of the Second Amendment "A well-regulated militia..." was intended to mean that all citizens have the right and responsibility to bear arms in protection of self, family, and country.  "Well regulated" at the time, meant well trained and disciplined.  We believe that the meaning and spirit of those words are just as relevant today.  Our citizens should be well trained, but "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." 

"The Gonz" is a Fort Collins-based political and gun rights activist, NRA Certified Firearms Instructor, and Law Enforcement AR-15/M-16/M-4A1 Armorer, and NRA Recruiter specializing in fostering gun rights and firearms safety.  We emphasize firearms safety and are strong advocates of a law-abiding citizen's right to own firearms for self-defense, hunting, and sporting purposes.  If you live in the Northern Colorado area, please ask how I can help you with all your firearms training needs.  By joining the NRA today, you are helping me to muster the vital resources needed to ensure that these rights are here for our children and future generations to come.
