Default Junior Sports Magazines, Inc. v. Bonta (Challenge to AB 2571) (Filed July 8, 2022)

For Immediate Release:


July 8, 2022- Last Friday Governor Newsom signed AB 2571 into law under an emergency order to have the law go into effect immediately. The law is will cripple youth shooting in California as it prevents the promotion of firearms and firearm-related products and events to youth.

This new law impacts Associations, Camps, Clubs, FFLs, Hunter Education, Instructors, Firearms Trainers, Youth Organizations, ranges, and those who work in association with any youth shooting program -- including firearm safety training. Any promotion of firearms to those under 18 years of age may lead to hefty fines of $25,000 per incident.

Today CRPA, Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of California, and others are standing up to Newsom and his propaganda. These groups filed a lawsuit to stop the further implementation of this unconstitutional law and are seeking an immediate injunction to block the law from taking effect.

“This law is a clear First Amendment violation of speech and assembly. It’s really an attempt to wipe out the next generation of hunters and shooters,” said CRPA President and General Counsel Chuck Michel. “Politicians in Sacramento are not even trying to hide their disdain for the “gun culture,” which they neither understand nor support. They want to wipe it out.”

Newsom not only does not support Second Amendment rights; he has been working to make it practically impossible to acquire, own or use a gun for sport or self-defense. With this bill, designed to keep youth out of the shooting sports, Newsom hopes that the current generation of freedom-loving gun owners will be the last.

“We must fight for the the next generation of gun owners so they can learn about firearms and their safe use, train, experience the joy of sport shooting and hunting, have fun, learn discipline, and understand their Second Amendment rights,” said Michel.

To receive updates on this and other 2A cases, SIGN UP to receive CRPA communications and follow up on social media. Knowledge is the first step to political power.

With the Supreme Court affirming that the Second Amendment has teeth and prohibits government infringement, now is the time for a long overdue SECOND AMENDMENT RECKONING. Gun owners must support litigation efforts and groups like CRPA, GOC, and SAF that fight for your rights, and have been for decades. There are LOTS of lawsuits to be filed as we fight back against the BLUE RESISTANCE to the Second Amendment.

Glad the good guys are fighting that slimy tyrant's Draconian methods to ensure young people can't get into shooting sports. I used to instruct shotgun at a few Boy Scout Camps and last I heard, they are having to put their shooting programs on hold. Gav Boy and his minions are scum.

Is it now illegal under the wording of this law?

Even my wife who mildly disapproves of my interest in shooting remembers her days in summer camp where marksmanship and safety were taught. Just a few weeks ago she and I were agreeing that if young people were exposed to safe shooting they would be far less inclined to become psychotic murderers when finally allowed to obtain a gun

As it stands now the young idiots spend years playing computer shooter games and then buy a rifle when they turn 18.

When I was in high school they actually had an indoor rifle range on campus. How far we have fallen

This weekend I was at an appreciation sporting clay shoot for the Northern & Southern Cal Ducks Unlimited committees . This new law was a serious topic of discussion as the Greenwings DU program is all about youth duck hunting. All event ads / flyers that discuss youth hunting programs are being axed.
Those acting in the public interest assume obligations of accountability and transparency. Retroactively redefining goals while claiming yet refusing to disclose some "master plan" is just the opposite. So is viciously trashing anyone who questions your judgment. -navyinrwanda

Stop calling them Lawmakers. It only encourages them.
