I officially pronounce the “debate” over. You’re free to believe California gun owners should leave the state to avoid the unconstitutional, indeed tyrannical after-effects of the Gunpocalypse gun control bills. You’re equally free to believe they should stay and fight.
Truth be told, there are tens of thousands of Golden State gun owners who can’t or won’t leave. They deserve the support of every American who cherishes their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
The obvious thing out-of-staters can do to help: donate money to the California gun groups continuing to battle the forces of civilian disarmament. Even if they only manage to hold the line of further infringements — and even if they don’t — they deserve our financial support. Which one or ones? Your choice. Google is your friend.
The less obvious thing? Who knows? Time will tell. But right now I invite TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia to show their support for California gun owners by sending them a simple message of support. Take a picture of yourself and your pistol or modern sporting rifle with these words on a piece of paper: “#StandStrongCalifornia” and your home state.
We’ll post the pics here and in a Facebook gallery. The images will let our fellow Americans know you’re with them in spirit. As Benjamin Franklin said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” Word.
