The general election is rapidly approaching… Tuesday November 6th to be specific.

Many people have asked for opinions on how I plan to vote and it seems appropriate to throw in my two cents .

First, consider your general strategy.

Obviously, If you know someone is a friend of the Second Amendment, vote for that person.

But if there are no 2A candidates listed, vote to minimize the impact of the people who are against us.

For example, if both the incumbent and the challenger are weak on 2A issues, why not just vote for the opponent? At least that way you are making the incumbent suffer for their actions, and potentially stopping them from moving into a higher office in the future.

Another example: if the ballot gives you the option of voting for multiple candidates, only vote for the candidate(s) that are 2A supporters and ignore the rest. Don’t feel obligated for vote for as many as they allow.

On the other hand, if the ballot gives you the option of voting for multiple candidates and none of them are 2A supporters, vote for everyone except the incumbent. This helps us punish incumbents who have not been our friend.

The main idea is to advance our friends and minimize the damage our opponents can do.

That being said, what am I considering for each of the races?

Feinstein not De Leon for US Senate: Neither of them is a friend. But Feinstein is old and feeble. If DeLeon gets in, we could be stuck with him for 3 decades. Also, DeLeon is currently out of office. If he fails in his Senate bid it will likely end his political career.

District 19  vote Aguilera  NOT  Lofgren .   There is only one race where a candidate is clearly Pro-2A. District 19 pits Zoe Lofgren against Justin Aguilera. Aguilera has an A rating from the NRA. He is my choice.

For all of the other Congressional races, I plan to vote against the incumbent. If enough people vote this way, we end the political careers of bad people.

This race pits Cox  against  Newsom. Newson is a self-serving Progressive / Communist who is out to build his career on the graves of gun-owners. Cox is the only choice.

This race pits Steve Bailey against Xavier Becerra for Attorney General. Becerra is just as bad as Newsom and Kamala Harris on 2A issues. Bailey is the best option.

For all the rest of state constitutional races ( Treasurer, Sect of State, etc) I plan to vote against the incumbents and that almost always means against a Democrat. That does not mean I support the opponent. I am voting against the incumbent.

The same holds true for the State Senate and Assembly races. We don’t have any pro-2A people to support. Accordingly, I plan to vote for any opponent to the incumbent.

When it comes to the local races, this is where it can get confusing. Fortunately, in many of the local races there are 2A supporters.


Here are a list people who support 2A rights…

Robert Varich         for Campbell Union High School District (UHSD)
Robert Imhoff        for East Side UHSD
Jennifer Imhoff     for Berryessa Unified School District.
Dion Bracco           for Gilroy City Council
Bob Nunez             for Milpitas Mayor
John Inks               for Mountain View City Coucil
Yan Zhao                for Saratoga City Council
Rishi Kumar          for re-election to Saratoga CC, he most likely stopped the anti 2A                                              ordinance.

George Yang          for Menlo Park City Council   Dist. 1


Here are a list of Local 2A enemies

Glenn Hendricks             Sunnyvale City Council
Gustav Larson                  Sunnyvale City Council
Mary-Lynne Bernald      Saratoga City Council
All incumbents Los Altos City Council
All Incumbents Town of Los Gatos

All  Incumbents of  San Carlos City Council

REMEMBER, if you are given the option of choosing multiple candidates  and none of them are 2A supporters,   vote for anyone OTHER than those who are incumbents.

Having Accuracy Problems while Shooting Your Handgun?

It may not be the firearm or the sights. Many things can contribute to inaccurate and inconsistent shots such as stance, arm position and posture. More often, it’s attributable to what happened during the moment you pull the trigger. Continue reading

Congressman Rho Khanna Is No Friend of the Second Amendment (Video)

If anyone had thoughts on Rho Khanna being a friend of our constitutional rights, this video definitely dispels that assumption. Don’t look for Congressman Ro Khanna to have your six when it comes to self-defense or bearing arms.

Congressman Khanna organized a “Gun Violence Discussion” held on Monday March 12 at the Newark Memorial High School. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, also another adversary of the Second Amendment joined him. With the pending win by the Warriors, this was a well-calculated move to attract many school children and adults who might have had a chance of taking a selfie. Continue reading

Mayors Against Illegal Guns Shooting for All Cities to Sign A Pledge for Them

The Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) in cooperation with Everytown for Gun Safety is using the shotgun (or scattergun) approach to spread their venomous lies in California. It looks like every city in the Bay Area has received an email encouraging the Mayors to sign a pledge to work with MAIG in effecting new anti-gun laws.

San Mateo Mayor Tries to Pull a Fast One

The City of San Mateo is the latest to get one of these. It appears the Mayor tried to sneak this pledge into the agenda for a meeting, without giving the three-day notice for public comment as required by the Brown Act. Continue reading

Thank You GS2AC for Years of Friendship and Support

It is with a sad heart that I need to leave you and move back east. Due to medical work restrictions I will need to move to a more affordable location. I will be moving to my Pennsylvania roots southwest of Philly in Delaware County. (Mark Towber, I may eventually be able to get a CCW there in a 2A-friendly section of the state.)

Thank You

I was deeply touched by the long standing ovation in the packed May meeting hall at Harry’s Hoffbrau when I announced my departure. I thank everyone for their fine words, too. Sam Paredes, the Executive Director of the Gun Owners of California also presented me with a GOC commemorative medallion for my long service as Webmaster and VP of the GS2AC.

There are many more people who have served longer and harder than I. I am grateful for their service. I am also grateful for our hundreds of members that have encouraged me during my tenure. Continue reading

A Lesson or a Prediction?

This came from a friend of ours LK.

At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your way.
With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.
You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open it…
In the darkness, you make out two shadows. One holds something that looks like a crowbar.

When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the shotgun and fire.
The blast knocks both thugs to the floor. One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside.  Continue reading
