If you get in trouble with the law for your guns - PLEASE contact CGF
 
Folks, if you get arrested or cited for your LEGAL weapons, PLEASE CONTACT CGF.

There have been several recent cases where people have not contacted us, and/or have decided to rely on local counsel or public defenders.

If the case is appropriate, we can work WITH your local counsel or public defender to make sure that you get the best representation possible and that your counsel is educated as to your gun rights. We do this at no charge as part of our mission as a non-profit.

In certain cases, we will even have our own attorneys represent you.

If you are concerned about attorney/client confidences being breached, you may contact ME, as I am a licensed attorney and everything you say to me will be kept in confidence.

Remember, we can't help you unless you reach out to us.

To contact us, PM any of the board members such as Kestryll, Ivanimal, Bwiese, Hoffmang, etc. . . OR PM me.

ETA: You may also email the CGF Hotline at hotline@calgunsfoundation.org -- or use the confidential form at http://www.calgunsfoundation.org/hotline.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BUSINESS CARDS THAT BOXBRO MADE ARE AWESOME - HERE'S A LINK TO THEM:

It is very important that there continue to be NO SUCCESSFUL OLL PROSECUTIONS IN CALIFORNIA.

Bravo CGF, will make a Christmas donation next pay day.

Letitrip 12-01-2009 8:53 PM

I hope it never comes down to it. But if it happens, I will be contacting you. Thank you! :D

G17GUY 12-01-2009 9:01 PM

+1, thanks to the CGF and the lawyers that make it all happen!

Lone_Gunman 12-01-2009 9:11 PM

Thanks Oak. I hope I never have to use the number or the email but props for putting it out there.

cbn620 12-01-2009 9:51 PM

Awesome. Man, we need like a business card or something we can stick in our wallets.

OHOD 12-01-2009 9:53 PM

Should this be a sticky or is it posted somewhere else?

louscamaro91 12-01-2009 10:17 PM

Wow, This is such a great thing to do. I respect and appreciate this very much as does everyone else here!! This Calguns is the best thing since sliced bread! Way to go stand-up guys here. Now we need to get more people to donate to this great organization to help out these guys that are willing to put all the time/sweat to build this site into what it has become and more.

AndrewMendez 12-01-2009 10:30 PM

I am in big trouble now! I cant stop buying ammo, and I have a terrible obsession with needing to own more firearms then anyone I know!!! Help???

kcbrown 12-01-2009 11:32 PM

This thread should be stickied, methinks...

bigmike82 12-01-2009 11:56 PM

Thanks Oaklander. It's great to know that CGF is out there for these cases. :)

nicki 12-01-2009 11:57 PM

Is this California only?
 
I realize Calguns is a California organization, but we have a few people from other states.

Perhaps it would be good to know how many people are from other states because everntually we will have to network across the country anyway.

Please remember that freedom is not free! We spend a lot of money on aggressive lawyering in CA and Federal Courts.

Please use the link in my signature to donate to The Calguns Foundation.

Thank you

Blackhawk556 12-02-2009 12:09 AM

you guys are awesome

thanks for the info.
I already put you in my blackberry with all your info and i've never even met you :cool:

CABilly 12-02-2009 12:32 AM

Awesome, put it in the phone.

bwiese 12-02-2009 12:35 AM

Folks,
Here's another famous Bill Wiese "bulleted list" (I don't do pie charts like Oaklander does)...
  • We often CAN do SOMETHING, even A LOT
  • .... but we have to KNOW about it ASAP ! !
  • Even if you already have an attorney we likely can help him if he's not a gun lawyer
  • CGF's Oaklander (lawyer) or his investigator can get details of your case confidentially and decide if or how things proceed, level of support, etc.
  • Even if the case is not perfectly 'clean', we may be able to offer some personal assistance to defense atty even if CGF cannot allocate legal/financial resources due to "color"
  • If you know of a 'situation', don't try to get deep info or have your buddy dig himself a deeper hole - put your buddy in contact with us here.
  • WE CAN'T FIGHT IT IF WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT.

Casual_Shooter 12-02-2009 7:31 AM

This is good information.

Contact info of all CGF atty's should be kept on the refrigerator or in a spot easily accessible to family etc should something happen to anyone here.

I have a lawyer friend who I would normally call first, but after reading this, I would make sure he had the numbers of the people here.

Should we make a contact list in this thread? Should it also contain the advertising lawyers here: Michel and Associates, Davis and Associates?

redneckshootist 12-02-2009 7:37 AM

good info.
lets see I have oaks number on speed dial, hoffmangs number on speed dial, ivans number on speed dial.;) Ill let y'all know if I have any problems.

Satex 12-02-2009 7:39 AM

Oaklander,
Can the CGF create a "business card" we can download, print, and add to our wallets, hang on the fridge for emergencies?

GrizzlyGuy 12-02-2009 7:43 AM

Excellent info and thanks for the generous offer. You are now in my speed dial along with my regular lawyer. Now working on committing your number to memory along with hers. :D

oaklander 12-02-2009 7:43 AM

Good idea!

I know Calguns.net is working on a luggage tag - let me see if we can add some CGF contact info.

ChrisTKHarris 12-02-2009 7:59 AM

Thanks for the heads up. :)

liketoshoot 12-02-2009 8:04 AM

putting your info on my safe right under the sticker that tells the Police to have the proper warrent to open and search.

And Thanks again for being here for us.

wildhawker 12-02-2009 8:32 AM

Oak, ping me when you have a second so we can get some info rolling (hotline?).

edwardm 12-02-2009 9:36 AM

Sounds like a potentially decent use for Google Voice.

Until Oak comes up with something, which will surely be better, here's a completely amateur business card.

:D

Purple K 12-02-2009 10:05 AM

Added the phone number to the contacts list on my cel. under the premis that if I have it I won't need it.

evidens83 12-02-2009 10:15 AM

Saved info into my Blackberry. Very good to have JIC :thumbsup:

MasterYong 12-02-2009 11:31 AM

Adding info to my cell.

Thanks for everything you do, guys.

Anyone know of any of these CG members that got nailed for OLLs and didn't say anything? Seems like they're ripe for Oaklander's trout of reality...

hoffmang 12-02-2009 12:06 PM

Any call to the CGF main line comes to me 24x7 - 650-275-1015. If someone doesn't pick up, leave a voicemail and a call back number or email and someone will get back in touch with you shortly.

-Gene

Updated the amateur business card I posted to add the number.

Amen to this, especially when legal CA gun owners go out of their way to follow the laws and still have to deal with ignorance law enforcement agencies.

high_revs 12-02-2009 12:44 PM

thanks guys. thread sent to my SO also just in case they won't give me my cell phone to call cgf. imagine that... SO asks me why didn't you call me first. well, duh.. I needed a lawyer. LOL

I'll see if I can make a 3rd donation before year end. Just got a call my N6 upper came in. :)

radioburning 12-02-2009 1:07 PM

Numbers saved. Hope I never have to use 'em.

jazman 12-02-2009 4:14 PM

It would be great for CGF to develop a safe magnet warning against unauthorized entry, more impressive than a law office and maybe a way to make some money also.

oaklander 12-02-2009 4:19 PM

Since this is a "sticky" - I added the CGF number to the first post - please call BOTH numbers.
