Thumbs up Orange County Gun Owners PAC

Do you guys know about Orange County Gun Owners PAC?

https://orangecountygunowners.com/

https://www.facebook.com/OCGunOwners/

They're an offshoot of San Diego County Gun Owners PAC, the folk who got Sheriff Gore to liberalize issuance of CCWs in San Diego County (from ~500 CCWs early last summer to >1,650 CCWs this month).

These county-level 2nd A orgs are needed to protect gun owners, LGSs and ranges from county and city anti RKBA ordinances.

Always amazes me how horribly bad the political right fails at marketing.

Most of the OCGO target audience don't consider themselves "gun activists" or don't want to admit publicly they own guns yet they put it right in the name.

They should have named it something neutral like "Orange County Freedom & Fairness PAC" but with the same pro2A mission. I mean... who doesn't like freedom and fairness?

Facepalm

Two thoughts come to mind:

(1) They're patterning themselves after the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC who, against all odds, over the past year, has gotten Sheriff Gore to liberalize CCW issuance. Just go thru the p. 4 of posts to see how SDSO has changed and what they did to accomplish that:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...1400940&page=4

(2) To paraphrase Charles Spurgeon, I prefer the imperfect way they are doing something to the perfect way others are doing nothing....

Or, as Teddy put it:

Quote:
The Man in the Arena:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
