We're approaching the end of the year and I wanted to take a moment to look back at what CGF has done. For some who don't have the context, I wanted to have a place to point them to understand what it is that CGF is. With that, here is CGF's scorecard so far. I've broken it down into the things that the group that would become CGF did before starting the Foundation and then take it on through what we've completed and what we're still up to. Note that there are a few complete cases that are wins that I don't mention because we haven't had a chance to make them public.

Absolutely. There aren't any sheeple in the CGF.

Hopefully these victories will send a message to legislators in all states that there are still patriots in this country who will not stand for having their rights trampled.

And we will band together to prevent that from happening.

Here ya are (at the sig line), and keep up the good work, CGF! I wouldn't have ever dreamed of having the complete lower with the upper coming at tax return time if it hadn't been for CGN making it more and more possible to have our 2A rights restored!:cool:

Had my AR/OLL returned to me by the BLM ranger who wrongfully took it.
Thank you CGF

Umnnn....No!.....I hate CGF, it turned me into a AK/AR OLL addict. Being addict is bad no? Was minding my own business, happy enough with my bolt action hunting rifle then all of a sudden this?
Ok... ok, will defer my next parts kit purchase and send my share for next year.

CGF is doing good work and I'm glad to see you havent been taking on cases with obvious criminal conduct that just happen to be gun related. Those guys already have the Public Defender and ACLU to help them.

Unfortunately much of the PD's don't have a clue that the gun charges are often bogus. We're working on that too.

They are becoming like the politicians, yes they can read, but do they care?

I SJPD officer I know told me flat out, they take whatever guns they can and let the DA deal with it.
I asked what if that person needs to use it for protection? He told me to call the police.

What if it's too late......oh well.
Thats the attitude of the police in my town.........That needs to change

By "PDs" above I meant Public Defenders. The issue for Public Defenders is that they don't have the time or free funds to keep up with the fast moving law here. Remember that conventional wisdom was that an AR style rifle was illicit until 2007.

Any chance that CGF has a case in the near future that will return AR's to their god given birth configuration? I want to use my standard capacity mags without looking over my shoulder for big brother!

Quick! Everybody setup CGF in their online banking autopay/billpayer and make regular tax-deductible donations for cases like those mentioned above! Word to the wise, set it for "monthly"... only jackasses set it to weekly payments (looking in mirror)...

You guys are amazing. When things get better with the work situation, I WILL be donating to this great cause. Thank you all...

I think that the CGF, what it does, and what it stands for is incredibly important to all of us who value our freedoms.

If 50$ wasn't such a huge chunk out of my unemployment check I would. I have time though and I volunteer at the booths when I can.

Just curious while an already filed case is still kept "undisclosed"? Once it's filed it's public record isn't it?

Just curious while an already filed case is still kept "undisclosed"? Once it's filed it's public record isn't it?it may be public record, but perhaps the other side is not aware of CGF involvement at this time, and CGF is trying to keep it under wraps.

All the other side has to do is set up a particular RSS feed with "calguns" as the keyword and throw down some coin for PACER access. It's so easy, a caveman can do it. :p
