Speak Up for Turner’s Outdoorsman Store in San Carlos, CA On Monday November 13th, 2017

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Turner’s Outdoorsman is California’s #1 hunting, shooting and fishing specialty store with 19 stores in California. They carry archery equipment, sportsman clothing, fishing equipment, hunting supplies and, of course, ammunition and firearms. They have been in California for over 46 years and plan to open a store in San Carlos. They have followed all the federal, state AND local laws, received all the permits and were ready to become a member of San Carlos’ business community.

All of a sudden, San Carlos has second thoughts being goaded brought up by some anti-gun nuts.

Show Up on Monday, November 13th


Talking Points

Here are some talking points. Note: Bringing up this issue as a Second Amendment issue is exactly what the gun nuts want us to do!

  • Make it about legal businesses.
  • Following all the rules: Federal, State and Local San Carlos zoning requirements.
  • Following the recent 2016 California State AW legislation – no “assault weapons” will be sold.
  • Supplying a wide range of outdoor products to the community, including fishing, archery, sports apparel, hunting supplies in addition to ammunition and firearms.
  • Don’t waste your time making this about removing the second amendment.

When we know more talking points suggested by Turners and insiders we’ll pass them on, but a large show up of our side needs preparation and planning. This time we have some notice, and the actual agenda item will be posted next Thursday, November 9th.

Show Up Early
