Why YOU Should Care About 1 State’s Gun Rights Fight


For thinking people, it’s obvious that the Second Amendment should apply across the nation, that the right to keep and bear and arms is fundamental to keeping our freedoms as Americans. Sadly, thinking people are, too often, in appallingly short supply, it seems.

And that’s why you see such tough fights over gun rights in multiple parts of the U.S., especially in blue states like New York, Michigan, and California.

One lawyer says that you should be paying particular attention to California’s fight over gun rights, though, even if you don’t live there. Michael Clements writes,


Chuck Michel, an attorney and president of the California Rifle and Pistol Association, says other states would do well to watch California.

Speaking to the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, on Sept. 23, Mr. Michel said that California is a gun law laboratory.

Clements continues:

“It’s not just a California problem,” Mr. Michel said.Indeed, as gun-rights activists celebrated the ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez that the state’s magazine ban was unconstitutional, Mr. Newsom signed into law two dozen more gun control measures.

At the press conference, Mr. Newsom proudly confirmed that California is a bellwether for gun control nationwide. He said, “California has led the modern gun rights movement since 1967.”

Again, from Clements:

Mr. Michel said it is no coincidence that California is pushing similar policies [to New York’s passing more gun control after the Bruen decision]. He said national gun-control organizations are investing in the state’s gun-control movement to gather information for campaigns elsewhere.

So, what we’re seeing is that gun control pushing politicians and organizations (like Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety) are using court battles of gun control legislation in California to look for ways to try to get that through courts nationwide.

That’s right. Even if you’re peaceful (which the overwhelming majority of legal gun owners in America are) and living in an area with a really low rate of violence (which is more likely to be the case if the area isn’t trying to restrict your gun rights), then, they want to take away your guns to… make you safer?

Yes, that’s the (lack of) logic that these politicians and organizations use as their “justification” to steal your Second Amendment rights.

And we would be wise to keep an eye on their insanity in California because we don’t want what they have in the rest of the country.



  1. Calif. has had periods of mass exodus which has been on and off, most on when the state has had an idiot for a Governor, governors like Jerry Brown who has held this position several times, in office, out of office and back in. Now Troublesome Newsome is continuing the ruination of the state. I got out of there in the late 80’s when things started going to hell in a hand basket and dam glad I did so. There are so many laws in the books that have no business being a law and no one is screening those books to look for laws that are literally the stupid is as stupid does caliber, in nearly every state. It will likely never get made right.

  2. “” For thinking people, it’s obvious that the Second Amendment should apply across the nation, “”
    The Constitution says it should be like the first Amendments NO LAW SHALL BE PASSED and the 2nd. Amendments SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED mean DON’T TREAD ON ME …
    The 10th. Amendments NOR PROHIBITED BY IT TO THE STATES says that the states have the same prohibitions as the federal government …
    By the 2nd. and 10th. Amendments ALL GUN LAWS ARE NULL AND VOID and only be changed only by popular vote of the people …

  3. Progressive and Fascist: Two words, one meaning. Government control over individual autonomy. Armed citizens are at risk of the citizens over whom they empower themselves – the more so if those citizens are armed. Disarming the law abiding citizens is wise. The still armed felons can be controlled if not used.

  4. Governor Newsom signs new anti-2nd amendment bills faster than the existing ones can be overturned in court. There needs to be a way to stop this unethical (and should be illegal) process.

  5. Robert Pegram, There’s a way to stop all this. Vote all the anti Firearms people out of government period. All IS being REVEALED! The whole Global Cabal deserves DIRT NAPS. NCSWIC, WWG1WGA, and P.A.N.I.C. LGB,FJB, FGN, FCS, FNP, FJN, FHBO,

  6. In NY we have queen hochul who thinks she reigns over all, we now have a AMMUNITION BAN……NEW YORK SUCKS!!!
