Going to a meeting and pointing out that California has "the most stringent gun laws" of the nation and that we are all law abiding citizens to those laws are a point of fact.

Try and get into the gun business and you invite regulatory organizations at the Fed, State and local level into your business. Even inviting citizens who are your neighbors who actively oppose you when trying to get a variance to the zoning in your area and who would trade in your rights to satisfy their feelings.

Methinks that this wont be the venue to ask this question, but there will be a time in the not too distant future when the question must be asked. When are enough gun laws enough?

The battles of Lexington and Concord were about:
A. Taxes
B. Arms, munitions and military supplies
C. None of the above
D. All of the above

If you picked B. you are correct.

I am not advocating resistance but, as a student history, it is good idea to remember WHY the second amendment was installed into the Bill of Rights and what it has meant for the individual/people of the various states. That the inherent right to self defense is enjoyed by ALL freemen.

It would also be a good reminder that exercising our/your right to peaceably assemble and speak is well worth the economic challenge that might be incurred by going to this forum. Should the perception be promulgated that it would either be economically or politically expedient to shut down The Crossroads of the West, it would be, because the perception was not shaped through resistance to a minority of individuals who believe it would be OK to do so.

Bolshevik (meaning MAJORITY) was absolutely opposite to reality. A small vocal minority was able to shape and influence the outcome of the Russian revolution.

On a tangent, back to point. Go to the meeting and state your views.

Nuff said.
