California Sued Over New Anti-Concealed Carry Law

California Sued Over New Anti-Concealed Carry Law 

Earlier this week, Gun Owners of America (GOA) and the Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) teamed up with Gun Owners of California (GOC) to promptly serve California AG Rob Bonta in a lawsuit challenging portions of SB 2, a bill that anti-gun Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law yesterday. This unconstitutional legislation was passed in response to the Bruen decision (which ended the state’s draconian “may-issue” policy), and among other provisions would:

  • Enact highly restrictive “sensitive locations” where concealed carrying would be prohibited, including all private property unless expressly permitted by the owner;
  • Require 16 hours of training;
  • And significantly increase the costs associated with securing a permit.

This suit specifically goes after the “sensitive locations” provision of the law.

Several other anti-gun states have enacted similar unconstitutional legislation in response to the Bruen decision, and GOA and GOF are a part of litigation in several of these cases.

Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President, issued the following statement:           

“This is just the latest assault on our rights in California. Just as concerning, Governor Gavin Newsom has already made his anti-gun intentions quite clear: he wants to effectively repeal the Second Amendment. Sadly, his acknowledgment that doing so would be the only way to enact more gun control did not dissuade him from violating his oath when he signed this law into effect, but we are fully prepared to fight back.” 

Sam Paredes, on behalf of the board for GOF and in his role as the Executive Director of Gun Owners of California, added:   

“Pro-gun groups in California have had success when pushing back on legislation like this – just look at our victory last week against the state’s magazine ban. And just like in that case, we are confident SB 2 will be overturned. I’ve been warning governors and legislatures across the country since the Bruen decision that these “response bills” will not stand, but unfortunately, many have still been pushed through. That won’t stop us however – states should fall in line, or we will make them.”    

GOA spokesmen are available for interviews.  Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit grassroots lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over two million members and activists.

The Right To Keep And Bear Arms

**** Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

The following selection is from the reference materials found in The American Patriot's Bible (page 16):

The Right To Keep And Bear Arms

Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants...  Genesis 14:14 (NKJV)

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Having fled persecution in Great Britain, the Puritans had laws requiring every family to own a gun, to carry it in public places, and to train children in the use of firearms. In 1619, the colony of Virginia had statutes that required everyone to bear arms. Connecticut law in 1650 required every man above the age of sixteen to possess "a good musket or other gun, fit for service." 

The early laws of America are very clear about this. The people were responsible for their own defense and freedoms and needed to be prepared to fight. Thomas Jefferson said, "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." At that time, there was no concept of a professional army, created and paid to defend the colonies. George Mason, called the Father of the Bill of Rights, said, "What is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

With the approach of the American Revolution, the natural rights philosophers had established the foundation for self defense. Every man's life, they said, belongs to God, and to allow one's life to be taken because one failed to defend it was wrong. This natural law to the right of self-defense was also applied to the duty to protect one's family, community, and national liberties. For the colonists, at the heart of their religion was liberty, a sacred gift from God. 

For the most part, the colonial churches, particularly New England's Congregational congregations, believed that to revolt against tyrants, such as King George, was to obey God. It may have had its roots in the Old Testament accounts of Israel's wars for freedom, but it became a powerful fire that impassioned the citizenry. And remains a belief that continues to influence Americans' views about the right to bear arms today.

R-41 Two Additional AltNews Resources

Resistance 41

By Tim Gamble

Just a quick note to let folks know about two interesting Alternative News resources that I only recently discovered myself - Dissent Watch and American Faith. 

Dissent Watch is a link aggregation website, similar to Drudge Report or Whatfinger News. The Dissent Watch tagline is "The Web's Most Forbidden News." The website links primarily to websites, video channels, and journalists who have experienced censorship and even deplatforming by Big Tech and Social Media companies. This includes the likes of ZeroHedge, Tommy Robinson, Emerald Robinson, Gavin McInnes, Dr. Peter McCullough, and many others. Link = 

American Faith is a nonprofit news media network that provides breaking news and analysis on current events. It was founded in 2021 by Pastor Phil Hotsenpiller. The American Faith mission is "to be the most trustworthy source of news, media, and education in defense of the Constitution and Judeo-Christian faith."  Link =

Currently over 1/2 off at Amazon! Exposes the facts regarding how America's leadership (government, corporate and academic) are largely paid off by the Chinese Communist Party. Link =

R-40 Think. Don't Follow.

Resistance 40

By Tim Gamble

Be a Thinker, not a Follower

Information warfare is being waged against We The People by the Elites (see R-00). Control of information. Control of the news narrative. Control of education. Control of the language. All this is being done to control We the People. This is why I post information on identifying misinformation and propaganda (see R-20, R-23, R-29, R-34, R-35, and another post).

On Amazon.
In an information war, being skeptical and asking questions is a very good thing. No one should blindly trust any authority or expert. Question everything. 

When evaluating information ask yourself "who is putting this out, and why?" Do you actually know the source of the information? Is there an ideological bias? A political or monetary motive? Is the information fact or opinion? How accurate and trustworthy has this source been in the past? Is it an appeal to reason or to emotion? Can you verify the information, either through your own experiences or through other reliable sources? 

Many folks do a good job of being skeptical of "the other side" but we lose our skepticism when it comes to what we perceive as "our side." Question everything means questioning all sides, including our side. 

We should be skeptical of and question the mainstream news media. We should also be skeptical of and question conservative and alt news media. 

We should be skeptical of and question Democrat politicians. We should also be skeptical of and question Republican politicians. 

We should be skeptical of and question the Russian narrative of the War in Ukraine. We should also be skeptical of and question the Ukrainian-NATO-American narrative of the War in Ukraine. 

Don't blindly follow the official narrative or any official party line.

Don't blindly follow any politician or other leader. Don't blindly follow any talk show host. Don't blindly follow any pastor, priest or other religious official. Don't blindly follow Rachel Maddow or Tucker Carlson. Don't blindly follow the "Fact Checkers." Don't even blindly follow me.

Don't blindly reject information that you don't want to be true. Don't blindly accept information that you do want to be true.

Think. Question. Verify. Reason. Then decide. Don't follow.

R-39 How To Guard Your Privacy - 11 Tips

Resistance 39

"The more they know about you, the more effectively they can manipulate and control you.
How To Guard Your Privacy

1) Identify what critical information you need to protect. What is critical information? Examples of critical information may include financial information, social security numbers, passwords and PINs, medical information, political and religious affiliations, memberships in certain organizations (NRA, GOA, prepper groups, etc.), medical conditions, "jab" status, gun ownership, presence of valuable items in the home (guns, gold, silver, cash, etc.), and purchases of large amounts of food and other supplies. It also may include certain plans (home security measures, personal security measures, when and where we plan to "bug out," etc.). Even letting others know of your vacation plans may let bad guys find out when you are not going to be home. 

2) Next, make sure that everyone in your family/group understands what information to protect. Share this critical information on a "need to know basis" only. Even within your family/group, not everyone needs to know everything. This doesn't mean that you don't trust your family or group members. Rather, the less people that know something, the less chance of it accidentally being revealed. 

3) If you have children in your family, you need to talk to them about not sharing certain information with non-family members. Teach them to respond to questions about the family's finances, religion, politics, firearms in the home, parents' jab status or opinions on vaccines, by responding "I don't know," and "You'll have to ask Mommy or Daddy about that." 

This includes not answering these questions from teachers and other authority figures. "I don't know," and "You'll have to ask Mommy or Daddy" are perfectly valid answers for a child to give their teacher. Young children will need to be reminded of this often. Also, be careful about what information you share with and around your children, as they do have ears, and they do repeat things.

4) Public, and even private, conversations, can be overheard. Be aware of your surroundings and topics of conversations. Even off-hand remarks can reveal critical information. Make sure your conversations are really private before discussing critical information. Having a private conversation in a restaurant? Chances are your waitress and any nearby diners will hear at least parts of it. Having a private conversation in your backyard? The neighbor who just happens to be on the other side of that privacy fence probably can hear every word. 

5) Be aware how certain information may reveal other information. For example, that "First Baptist Church" bumper sticker reveals not only your church membership, but also tells the bad guys you're probably not at home on Sunday mornings. Think through what the bad guys may able able to deduce from seemingly innocent information you do give out. 

6) Shred or burn (instead of throwing away) all unneeded paper that may reveal critical information, including bills, shopping receipts, insurance papers, bank statements, tax records, pay stubs, ATM receipts  & other financial documents, pre-approved credit card & loan applications, prescription labels, expired passports & driver's licenses, among many others. This may also include any notes or lists you've made regarding your prepper or bug-out plans

7) Be careful of what trash & recyclables you leave at the curb. Even empty boxes may reveal to those nosy neighbors what, and how much, you are buying. Options to roadside recycling include taking the boxes to the recycling center yourself, or even burning them or using them in composting or sheet mulching. Remember to shred/burn critical papers.

8) Be cautious in your use of social media, email, text messaging, and the Internet. Realize that if you are emitting electronically, your use is being monitored, logged and stored. NEVER use electronics to commit illegal acts, make threats, or to stalk or harass others (you shouldn't be doing these things anyway). When surfing the Internet, avoid the "Red Light Districts" (adult sites, illicit drug sites, or other sites used for illegal/unethical activities), as visiting those sites greatly increases your chances for computer viruses, phishing attacks, ransomware, and attracting the attention of both the bad guys and law enforcement. 

9) Don't overshare on social media. Never share critical information on social media. Be aware of what information you might be unintentionally sharing. For example, that selfie you posted with your car's license plate clearly readable in the background. 

10) Use cash whenever possible. Cash (and barter) is the least traceable means of economic exchange, and the least likely to leave an electronic or paper trail leading back to you. 

11) Be mindful of how you use of affinity cards, as well as credit, debit, or checking cards, and even modern library cards, as they all collect and log data about you and your habits. This information may then be used by the company, shared with its vendors, sold to other companies, or stolen by company employees or outside hackers. It could also be obtained by the government (even without a warrant in many cases).
