I received an email from the Calguns Foundation today announcing this great news.
After considering the letter of opposition sent by The Calguns Foundation and California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees, the City of South San Francisco prudently rejected an outrageous gun control measure that would have banned hollow point ammunition and subjected gun owners to serious privacy risks.
Besides banning all hollow-point ammunition, this ordinance required all ammunition resellers to report to the South San Francisco Police Department everyone purchasing more than 500 rounds of ammunition. Continue reading →
If you think the current ammunition shortage is tough, just wait and see what happens when the President decides it is in the “interest of national security” to seize all the manufacturing capability of firearms and ammunition. That is what the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order does. It was signed by President Obama on Saturday, March 16th, 2013. Continue reading →
The Los Gatos Town Council has issued their agenda for a special meeting to be held on Monday, March 4, 2013.
The purpose of the meeting is to prevent the establishment of new businesses that sell firearms and to try and adopt regulations that will make it extremely difficult for Templar Sports to continue to sell firearms or ammunition through the use of abusive regulations. Continue reading →
The following reproduction of the definiton of “arms” comes from Definition 2, Col. 2, p.449, Vol 1 of 12, Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 1978. I believe it is important to note the definition of this term, especially in light of the large amount of scholarship that concludes with a degenerate interpretation of the 2nd Amendment as to where it came from and what it means. It is not unreasonable to view the definition below, read the Second Amendment as to the term “arms” and to then interpret the intent of the Founding Fathers as enabling American citizens to own more than mere “small arms”, and definitely more than non-military arms at that.
What the term "arms" meant about the time of the American Revolution
Note what the the term “arms” meant around the time of the American Revolution. Notice the difference between “arms” and “small arms” throughout the discussion. This is important because the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to keep and bear “arms”. Not “small arms”, “fire arms”, etc. This distinction has not been properly discussed in modern jurisprudence.
American Spirit Arms was contacted by the Bank of America and told they would be terminating their business arrangements. Funds were frozen and bank loans were called in because American Spirit Arms dealt in firearms.
This was the reason given by Bank of America. Watch this video where the owner of American Spirit Arms, Joe Sirochman tells us what he thinks about these anti-American tactics.
The following is evidence that registration lists have been used to confiscate guns since at least 2007 in Santa Clara County, California.

For two Mondays in a row, Second Amendment advocates and gun banners alike packed the Los Gatos City Council meeting for hearings on Templar Sports. Last night, February 11th, supporters of Templar sports seemed to grab center stage and their efforts paid off.
The Los Gatos City Council decided that the best decision was to leave Templar Sports alone to run their business. The outpouring of support for Templar sports had a lot to do with the council’s decision.
An attorney for the City of Los Gatos also testified that the best course of action was to drop all adverse actions against Templar Sports. There was no action the city could legally take to prevent a legitimate business from operating, especially since the business met or exceeded everything that had been required of them.

Robert testified before the Los Gatos City Council on February 4th in response to opposition to Templar Sports opening up at the end of December. He was joined by hundreds of supporters. There were also people present that wanted to shut down his legal business which received approval to operate by the City of Los Gatos, the California Department of Justice and the BAFTE.

A while ago in Oak Harbor, Washington, a city council member tried to make a motion to disarm a veteran who had a CCW permit during a city council meeting. The meeting was to pass a law banning CCW holders from carrying in city parks and marinas.
The councilman left the room after failing to pass the motion. The mayor apologized to the veteran who was legally carrying the concealed firearm and said for the record that he felt safer that the veteran was armed. The council members eventually passed the park and marina ban.
At the following council meeting, 160 people, most of them legally carrying firearms, Continue reading →
