Default The Hypocrisy of Alameda County

Just so some of you are aware currently Alameda County is waging a war against gun shops in the unincorporated areas of the county. If you are located in San Leandro, Oakland, Hayward, San Lorenzo etc., your closest FFL dealers are in a forced lock down. Dealers such as Elite Armory and Solar Tactical in Castro Valley.

Even if you have purchased firearms ready to picked up the County will not allow these establishments to open for deliveries of Firearms.

Meanwhile if you crossover into Dublin (Alameda County) or Livermore (Alameda County) gun shops are allowed to remain open to deliver. These two cities mentioned are incorporated.

Looks like as residents of the cities of Oakland, Hayward, San Leandro, and San Lorenzo are being regarded as second class citizens. Their second amendment right is being seen as a second class right. It appears evident that the state and county would rather people die than be able to defend themselves

I really feel for those people who are unable to pickup their firearms purchases. My concern is that this is going to be the new normal.

P.S.
Marijuana Dispensaries, Liquor Stores, Fast Food joints are still open. Looks like the state is trying to keep everyone fat, drunk, high, and happy.

Many (many) years ago there was a liquor store in Campbell that also had an FFL. Maybe its time for FFL's to sell beer!

Not only should they sell beer and firearms, they should also sell tobacco products.

That should be illegal in the mind of progressives.
The same ones who support decriminalizing marijuana.

I just want to point out that Oakland, Hayward, San Leandro are incorporated cities. Castro Valley and San Lorenzo are unincorporated along with part of San Leandro along 580.

They told me they weren't allowed to conduct any business, even by appointment.

Update: After reading news articles, I found Firearms Policy Coalition's Covid19 Legal Action form and filled it out. I was surprised to get a call back within a couple of hours. I told them my specific situation, provided info about the shop, the shutdown, etc. and they mentioned they are already working to take action.

They did not ask me for donations.

If you need to make a purchase and want to use/help Solar Tactical or Elite Armory (I think they were impacted too, correct?), I would highly encourage you to fill-out the form. Just be prepared to act/get involved. Don't fill it out just to rant and complain. I intend to put effort and/or commit some time if they decide to pursue my specific situation further...
