Following up on last year's CGF Booth at the 2011 World Ag Expo (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=407546) in Tulare, we're stepping it up this year and improving. Our purpose is to assist with educating as many people possible what configurations and types of firearms are legal to own in CA and what the future of firearms ownership looks like by way of a quick review of the past along with a snapshot of what is currently in progress.

Our vehicle to carry out this purpose is visual impact, informative literature, helpful volunteers and explaining different features of displayed firearms. With everything from revolvers to belt-fed toys and a sponsor's off-road rig as a display, I doubt very seriously that we'll fall short on conversation starters.

Am I OT? but I'll ask anyway. The last couple of times I went to the Cow Palace gun show, I noticed that there's no CGN booth anymore. So has CGN not doing this 2A educ. at gun shows?

All, thank you for your support. We learned a valuable lesson with Gene Hoffman dealing with that poorly written ballot initiative.

All,



I met with Dave Clark, the initiative sponsor, and Ignatius Piazza, the founder and director of Front Sight, in San Jose this past Monday afternoon.

I was able to walk through our concerns with the initiative both as written and based on the current timing vis-ŕ-vis this election cycle. We additionally discussed some of the other concerns that have come up in discussion here at Calguns.net (http://Calguns.net).

It is very clear that this proposition is through the direct and personal impetus of Dave Clark out of a sincere desire to “do something” about carry in California. As a more limited user of the internet, Mr. Clark was not as aware of the national carry strategy, its status, or how serious the Sunshine Initiative’s results already are here in California. That puts an onus back on all of us to spend more time keeping fellow shooters who aren’t online informed......-snip-.....

-Gene

Not everyone who wants to get involved knows how/where to do so, many of them don't use the internet, of the people who do use the internet, an even smaller number are aware of CGF & the License to Carry Initiative. This ag expo booth is one of several ways to get out in the middle of our community to get people more involved and to help people understand how to operate within the law so they don't get arrested on unknowingly & unintentionally violating a ridiculous, obscure law.

Even though an event like this is somewhat costly, it is still less expensive than ONE wrongful arrest/firearm confiscation or bogus configuration charge, your donations put flow charts in local Police Departments and make possible the distribution of a wealth of knowledge and encouragement to other gun owners that WE ARE WINNING.

Thank you, Gregg!

Just an FYI to all that I just noticed the store was collecting tax on the Ag Expo sponsorships (which is not supposed to be the case). I've issued credits for the difference on all orders I saw that had a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Sponsorship; please let me know if I've inadvertently missed anyone's order. Sorry about that, all,

-Brandon

A local coffee roaster here in Fresno, Lanna Cafe, has custom-roasted some coffee specifically for a CGF Label, which we'll have available in exchange "for suggested donation" (not for 'sale' which is completely different to the State of California).

Anyway, at the Ag Expo booth, we will have:

Sheriffs Sunrise - medium
CGF Steamroller - bold
Evil Black Espresso - espresso blend


It was roasted two days ago and both roast-masters are Calgunners! :eek: :D :thumbsup:

At the close of day two of this three day event, I've lost count of how many felonies were stopped/prevented because of some simple educational materials and discussions. Thank you to all the individual sponsors who stepped up to help make this epic opportunity possible.
