Gun Runnerz reckons they know “How We Can Save California and the Second Amendment.” Step 1: gunmakers should ban direct sales to California law enforcement agencies. To motivate reluctant gunmakers, the Runnerz want consumers to boycott manufacturers who continue to sell guns ‘n gear to CA LEOs. According to the video, Barrett, Falkor and Sebu have “taken the pledge.” GLOCK and Smith & Wesson, not so much.
For Step 2, Gun Runnerz call for in-state and out-of-state gun owners to light-up the switchboards and stuff the email accounts of Golden State legislators, especially those who voted for the “Gunpocalypse” bills. Better late than never? The longest journey (back) starts with a single step? Something like that.
As for Step 3, “individual actions,” methinks a gun owner boycott of California goods, service and tourism ain’t gonna have much impact. As for “organize protests,” I wonder if any of that will involve civil disobedience and if so, what kind?
It’s good to see besieged California gun owners promoting a combination of political and economic measures to fight the forces of civilian disarmament. But this video offers gun owners little hope in the face of a cataclysmic collapse of their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Truth be told, the mob has taken the field.
On this, Independence Day, it’s worth noting that there were many times the American colonists faced the prospect that their political aspirations were doomed to utter and miserable failure. Some gave up. Those who didn’t weren’t bothered by the long, seemingly insurmountable odds. As long as there was a chance of liberation from the yoke of English tyranny, they kept fighting.
Stand strong California.
