Help Protect our Constitutional Rights to Own Firearms


Today I thought I would write a guest post on a subject that I have normally avoided.  That is firearms, gun control and protecting the Second Amendment.  Now, the situation I am writing on currently applies only to California. So why do you care, if you don’t live in this left wing state run by crazies? If the left has its way, these new laws will spread to other areas.

If Hillary Clinton wins the White House, a radical left wing Supreme Court, that will impact future generations and may be irreversible, you should be concerned about what is happening in California. The new laws that have been passed here may be appearing in many of your states soon.

On July 1, six new gun control laws were signed by the governor, Jerry Brown. Then, a few days later, a seventh was signed. The following is a summary of the new laws — these aren’t proposals or bills waiting for debate. They are now LAWS in the State of California. The one good piece of news is that the people of California can, through the process of petitioning, force the Assembly to put these laws up for a vote.

SIGNED BOTH-  Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880 would make changes of monumental scale to California’s firearm laws by reclassifying hundreds of thousands of legally owned semi-automatic rifles as “assault weapons.”  This legislation effectively outlaws magazine locking devices, more commonly known as “bullet buttons”.  As of January 2017, all AR-type of firearms and even some hunting rifles will no longer be legally sold in the state. There is still a lot of confusion about the law. Depending on the way it is interpreted, it may even cover M1 carbines.

If you register your gun as an assault weapon, there are draconian limitations on how you own and transport the gun. You can never sell, give, lend, or trade an assault weapon to another person. Nor can you hand down an “assault weapon” to your spouse, children, or grandchildren. Upon your death, it is turned over to the state for destruction. If you move out of the state, you cannot move back into the state with your guns.

SIGNED Assembly Bill 1511 effectively ends the long-standing practice of temporarily loaning a firearm for lawful purposes. Under this legislation, the ability to loan a firearm to anyone other than a family member would now be prohibited unless conducted through a dealer, absent very narrow and limited exceptions. A simple loan to a trusted friend for a few days would take almost a month to complete, from loan to return. It now requires two background checks, two 10-day waiting periods, two fees and multiple trips to a gun dealer.

SIGNED – Assembly Bill 1695 creates a 10-year firearm prohibition for someone convicted of falsely reporting a lost or stolen firearm.

SIGNED – Senate Bill 1235  places unjustified and burdensome restrictions on the purchase of ammunition and requires IDs and background checks for ammunition purchases. This requires a state-wide database to track such purchases. This law goes into effect in 2019. It permits the state to monitor the types of ammunition you buy, thereby identifying whether you have firearms that are not registered. It would be a crime to import ammunition from another state.

SIGNED – Senate Bill 1446  bans the simple possession of ammunition feeding devices/magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 cartridges. Even the ones that are currently grandfather in would have to be turned in or destroyed.

SIGNEDAssembly Bill 857 requires serialization and registration of virtually every firearm possessed in the State. It requires anyone who manufactures or assembles a homemade firearm to first apply for a unique serial number or other marking from the state Department of Justice, which must then be affixed to the weapon. In 2014, Brown vetoed a similar bill by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, stating, “I appreciate the author’s concerns about gun violence, but I can’t see how adding a serial number to a homemade gun would significantly advance public safety.”

Here’s what California residents can do

Under California law, if we collect 365,880 signatures on all seven petitions, the laws will be placed on hold and brought up for vote in 2018. This gives us time to campaign and educate the voters, so that we can block these laws from taking effect.

Currently thousands of volunteers are collecting signatures on all seven petitions, and it is looking like we have a good chance. The signatures have to be turned in by September 28, 2016.  California is being run into the ground by power-mad, anti-gun Democrats, but the fact remains that it is one of our most populous states and home to tens of millions of gun owners.

Calguns and the NRA are among the groups that are helping to support this effort.  Unfortunately, we are not receiving any support from three large sporting goods chains that sell firearms. They are blocking us from collecting signatures at their locations. In case you want to express your feeling to them or boycott their stores, they are Dicks Sporting Goods, Big Five and Sportsman’s Warehouse.

If you are registered to vote in California, I urge you to find a copy of the petitions and sign them. Non-residents can also help with financial support. Donations can be made to Help us stop this attack on the 2nd Amendment because it won’t stop here. The anti-gun groups have been planning draconian laws like this for decades.

Thanks,  Howard

  1. Ed Harris says:

    KGB officer Yuri Bezmenov escaped to the West in 1970. His 1985 interview with E. Edward Griffin is accessible online at A synopsis my paraphrasing:

    The emphasis of KGB active measures was not covert intelligence, but an overt, slow process of ideological subversion or psychological warfare, to change the perception of reality of every American… so that no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their family, their community or country.

    There are 4 basic stages:

    1) Demoralization: 15-20 years to demoralize a nation. This is the minimum time to educate one generation of students, to expose them to Marxist-Leninist ideology. But the Soviet-era plan was to have it pumped into their “soft heads” for at least 3 generations.
    Both Bill and Hillary Clinton were recipients of these efforts, as was Barack Obama.

    The Soviets compiled a huge files on those who influenced public opinion and divided them into two groups, those who would tow the line of Soviet foreign policy would be promoted. The others who refused would be character-assassinated or physically executed. He mentions countries in which were dissenters were executed, which included both idealists who believed in Marxist-Leninism and “useful idiots”, who would become disillusioned and be likely in the future to become political enemies.

    The main targets for infiltration were conservative media, to target people who lacked moral principles, and those who were self-important.

    “Useful idiots” or idealists [we’re like that when we’re young] are only useful for the destabilization phase, and instrumental only to that point. When their job is completed, they are not needed any longer, because they know too much. They become disillusioned and would be disappointed when they actually saw who comes to power.

    The Soviets began infiltrating our universities, teachers unions and our educational systems in the 1970s, to influence curriculum, turning the young against American principles and educating our children in the opposite ideology. Reversing this process takes 15-20 years to turn the tide of ideological perception of reality back to normalcy and patriotism.

    The generation who twice elected Obama was “contaminated”, being programmed into the leftist way of thinking. You can’t change their minds. Their basic logic of viewing the world and their behavior is set. The process of demoralization is complete and irreversible for them.

    When they see in the future what their ‘equal’ society is really about, they will revolt. They will dissent. But in a true Communist t system, as in China during the Cultural Revolution, there would be no place for dissent, and they would be squashed like cockroaches.

    The demoralization process is now complete in America. The Soviets could not even have imagined how successful it would be, he says. Most of it was done by well intentioned American liberals of mis-applied compassion who inflicted increased government control onto their fellow Americans, “for the greater good.” This was allowed to occur because of the destruction of the family unit and decline in moral standards. The demoralized person is unable to evaluate true information. You can shower him with documents, facts and pictures, but he will refuse to believe it until he is kicked in his “fat bottom” by the storm troopers.

    2) The next stage is destabilization. Economy, foreign relations, defense systems. With our hugely increased national debt, public corruption and distrust of government and a nation tired of war, we have just about completed this phase.

    3) Next stage is crisis. 3-6 weeks of chaos is all it takes. Pick your scenario.

    4) After the crisis, there is a period of “normalization” (cynical phrase), which may last indefinitely. Normalization means when the FEMA contractors, black helicopters, National Guard and the tanks roll in.

    When people allow the schmucks in power to bring the country to crisis, to destabilize the economy, eliminate the free market, and put Big Brother in power in Washington, promise loads of free stuff, and present the false illusion that things are under control.

    Most American politicians, media and the education system train the new generation to think they are living in peace time. But there is really an undeclared war on the foundations of their system by a Communist world conspiracy. If you don’t believe this read some of the related works by John Barron of the Reader’s Digest, Herbert Romerstein, former director of the Office to Counter Soviet Active Measures and Disinformation of the US Information Agency, and Major Stanislav Levchenko of the KGB, who defected in 1979. Search on Amazon or Google these people and educate yourself.

    We have a choice between acceptance of what has been started for us, or anxiety to try to turn things around and perhaps save our republic. If America has truly become too stupid to govern itself and elects to accept the outcome of a process started by Stalin and carried on under our noses ever since, all the freedoms we have ever known and strived for will evaporate.

    (End of summary)

    My comments:

    Things didn’t work out exactly the way he put it, but I don’t think it’s far off.

    I know that most people out there think that Communism was “defeated” when the Berlin Wall came down. It’s true there was some relief for people but basically this false perception can be attributed to the controlled media and distorted history, government suppression of historical incidents (“classified”/”declassified”), and government/Foundation-controlled education.

    Wall Street supported totalitarian regimes, as documented in Antony C. Sutton’s books, since the 1920’s.

    Also, according to the Reece Committee, left-wing movements had been funded by the Wall Street foundations which had systematically prepared the American system for a planned merger with the Soviet system.

    As explained in Sutton’s books, the same people who created Bolshevism also experimented with Hitler’s and Mussolini’s systems. At the top, they’re motivated by monopolistic and elitist drives. In their ideal system, the elites will be enjoying themselves just fine, and the rest will be slaving down below, doing exactly what they’re told. “Some animals are more equal than others”, as Orwell said in “Animal Farm“. All utopias on offer are like that.

    I know there are arguments out there that it is impossible for socialist or communist societies to survive, so therefore the Berlin Wall collapsing was the end of Communism. But free market systems had already been completely undermined from within, by a globalist collectivist Establishment. I think the purpose of communist nations was rapid industrialization and political modernization of temporary Communist nation-states. The stage after that is the merging of nations in global “trading” pacts, and then into a world government. If systems are not allowed to be independent, they are just standardized and there is no competition. Thousands of years of slavery and collectivism and feudalism show that elites profit from dominating everyone else.

    It seems clear to me that the U.S. government was or is divided into two Marxist factions, the original pro-Soviet faction, and then later also the Trotskyite anti-Russian anti-Stalinist faction, the neo-conservative movement in other words. So there was some kind of deliberate period of militarization under Reagan and also a time of superficial conservatism where people were given a little space to breath while the government grew much larger and technology became more advanced.

    In my opinion, Brzezinski anticipated this phase in his 1970 book “Between Two Ages” when he describes more conservative segments of society. As Carter’s National Security Advisor, Brzezinski, obviously from his writings a type of Marxist like many other American officials, and critical of the USSR, was also involved in initiating the toppling of the Soviet regime by supporting the Mujahadeen (see video especially).

    It was several years after this interview that the Berlin Wall came down and Bush Sr. announced the New World Order. He didn’t praise the virtues of freedoms and property rights. Bush talked about the promise and vision of the UN founders (Communists like Alger Hiss, socialists, world federalists, collectivists of all stripes).

    The United Nations Wall Street agents went to work on Kyoto and Agenda 21, signed in 1992. Clinton and Bush Jr. continued Reagan’s police state “drug war” and attacking freedoms. The Oklahoma City bombing “happened” and 9/11 “happened”, and Bush started eliminating more freedoms and rights with huge staged terror events as the excuse. And the phase of countless wars of domination began for so-called “Democracy” (imposing the globalist Marxist Central Banking system) with all the lying propaganda, torture, and airport security degradation.

    Another important event is the continuing establishment and strengthening of the European Union, a pre-cursor to world government.

    So all the collectivist totalitarian subversion of rights and values from the American and Western elites has been successful so far except for growing awareness among many in the public. This ideology pre-existed the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany and it has outlived them both.

    So it looks like we’re still waiting for the final stage mentioned by Bezmenov, which would be more staged crises and then troops on the streets, and the complete elimination of freedoms. All the “demoralized” stooges out there will go along with everything they’re told unless more people wake up.

    By the way, here is an example of two wealthy elitist Americans spanning generations of Communist subversion:

    Al Gore and Armand Hammer (Stalin’s picture in the background in the first image). Al Gore has pushed international “trade” agreements and “climate change” taxing agendas, which are both Marxist policies despite what people imagine, but so are a lot of other policies pushed by Western leaders over the last 100 years and more.

    Suggested Bibliography:

    Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government, 2
    by M. Stanton Evans, Herbert Romerstein. FDR was naive and feckless in allowing himself to be surrounded by and eventually grossly manipulated by Soviet agents that he was in violation of his oath of office to protect and defend the United States. These Soviet were gaining control of wartime and postwar policy making bodies, especially the State Department, purging them of anti-communist and security personnel in order to advance the interests of the Soviet Union. The Army’s G2 files on subversives were buried in the archives, and the wartime office closed down. Restrictions on employment of Communist Party of the USA members by the Government and their commissioning in the armed forces were lifted, directed by the White House at the instigation of traitors, chief of whom was Harry Hopkins. The book especially focuses on Hopkins role as the most powerful man in the Government after FDR and his unfailing efforts to give Stalin everything he wanted with no quid pro quo or consideration of American interests and to put the US Government fully behind the advancement of Soviet interests. And it goes on and on. This is well-researched and argued book, and I recommend it for every citizen jealous of his liberties. It is a cautionary tale of how the Left continues to operate to this day, distilled in the CPUSA slogan of the 1940s: “There are no enemies on the Left.” That is how the mainstream media treated Obama in the last two elections.

    The Venona Secrets: Exposing Soviet Espionage and America’s Traitors, by Herbert Romerstein, Eric Breindel. In 1995, secret Soviet cable traffic from the 1940s that the United States intercepted and eventually decrypted was declassified and became available to American historians. Romerstein Breindel reveal the full story of the days when Soviet spies ran their fingers through America’s atomic-age secrets. Included are details of spying that reached from Harry Hopkins in Franklin Roosevelt s White House to Alger Hiss in the State Department to Harry Dexter White in the Treasury, as well as links of Albert Einstein to Soviet intelligence and conclusive evidence showing that J. Robert Oppenheimer gave Moscow our atomic secrets and the previously unsuspected vast network of Soviet spies in America. The Venona documents confirm the controversial revelations made in the 1940s by former Soviet agents Whittaker Chambers and Elizabeth Bentley and the
    role of the American Communist Party in supporting and directing Soviet agents, putting the Venona transcripts in context with secret FBI reports, congressional investigations, and documents recently uncovered in the former Soviet archives. It reveals past treason conducted either wittingly or unwittingly, by our own government officials.

    This article on is as disturbing as it is thought provoking, whether you believe in his premise or not. It is worth a read. I leave you to form your own opinion:

    you think the country will go to hell if HILLARY gets elected?! you people have no idea what will happen if trump get elected either. just to give you an idea, that wealthy pencil pusher flat out said that anyone carrying a knife will be subject for arrest. you think he will defend the 2nd amendment? think again! to be honest, no matter WHO gets elected next, the america as we know it will be destroyed. the united states of america may as well be called the united SOCIALIST states of america. this is the term when our freedoms officially vanish.

    oh and forget rising up and fighting the man either. they’ve been running two supercomputers with an “unconventional war” simulator for years; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. in other words, they’ll know what any uprising will do before the uprising does. not only that, but any revolutionists will be fighting the military of the usa, canada, and a host of european countries as well. they’ll crush any rebellion just as soon as it starts.

  6. Ed Harris says:

    I believe that no matter who is elected, the congress will remain in gridlock and not much will be accomplished legislatively. In the longer term expected Supreme Court appointments potentially creating a long-term leftist slant to the judiciary for the next generation are the most worrisome.
