Default CalGuns Independent Expenditure Committee?

Has anyone looked into setting up a CalGuns Independent Expenditure Committee? In light of Citizens United v FEC, and the movement of money behind the scenes to Anti=Second Amendment candidates, maybe it's time to step the game up a little? There have been several Congressional Races in California that could have gone either way with a few thousand dollars and some good word-of-mouth (Lungren v Brea, Swalwell v Stark, Brownley v Strickland, Ruiz V Bono-Mack)

Just thinking out loud.

Already in the works.
Right now I am engaged in seeking a person that has experience as a campaign manager

What Chainsaw said. Lundgren is a statist Republican who thinks that fighting the War On Drugs trumps human rights.

Actually, Calguns did intervene in that race...against Lundgren. (And when I say "Calguns intervened," I mean that people who are recognized and respected by many of us posted here on the forums and said that we should all consider voting against him, to punish the Republican Party for supporting an anti-gun candidate.)

This is excellent news. Can't wait to donate to this. Will this be a Calguns-only or an FPC thing? We should be clear that this is non-partisan: we will support 2A irrespective if the candidate is a D, R, or whatever else.
