Ruling Democrats squash parental rights, again

Sunday, January 19, 2020, 9:17 pm | Randy Thomasson

Parental rights. Most parents assume they have them. 

And they do … for thousands of years … because Marriage and Family were created by God, not by government. This is why pre-constitutional parental rights have been recognized as sacrosanct since time was recorded.

Yet bad government ignores, tramples, and eliminates your God-given parental rights. So I’m saddened, but not surprised, that a Democrat-controlled California Senate committee has killed a parental rights bill on party lines, Republicans for, Democrats against.

The good bill of pro-family State Senator Mike Morrell of Rancho Cucamonga, SB 673, which was defeated January 15 in Sacramento, would have prohibited sex education from being imposed on a child, whether under “health” or “HIV prevention education,” in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, unless a parent voluntarily provides his or her written permission.

The bill would have also required school districts to make available for inspection, and translated into different languages, anything videos and handouts related to AB 329, California’s latest and most blatant sexual indoctrination law.

But the ruling Democrats, who long ago sold out to pro-abortion and pro-homosexual-transsexual agenda forces, aren’t open to reason or even local pressure. They see themselves as servants of abortionists and “LGBTQIA” groups. So they don’t mind trampling parental rights, religious freedom, or children’s innocence. Their minds are that darkened and their hearts are that hardened.

Because of the ruling Democrat’s entrenched submission to the agendas of abortion and perversity, every pro-religious freedom and pro-parental-right bill will be stopped in its tracks by the Democrat prostitutes of their evil pimps. They are bought and sold!

So what can you do? In light of AB 329 and 10 other state school sexual indoctrination laws, there are few choices for California parents with moral values:

1. You can permanently exit the government-run system, and instead, home school or church-school your children.

2. You can tell yourself that AB 329 is the sole problem (in light of 10 other sexual indoctrination laws, it isn’t), and you can try to opt-out your children from its reach.

3. A pro-family multimillionaire out there (perhaps a friend of Senator Morrell?) can fund a rock-solid parental rights state constitutional amendment to require a parental opt-in for all “sex,” “health,” and “HIV prevention” education in California state schools.

But the stark reality is this — if you want to rescue your children from sexual indoctrination of every kind, you must permanently exit the government schools. This is why SaveCalifornia.com has created our School Indoctrination Center, to inform parents and grandparents so they’ll rescue their children and grandchildren. Please act now!

 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin,
it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck,
and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

How to get ammo in California even if you’re not an outlaw

Monday, December 16, 2019, 7:35 am | Randy Thomasson

In our increasingly brutal and non-Christian culture, Californians who want “life insurance” for themselves and their family members often own a gun or guns.

And, of course, guns need bullets and shotguns need shells in order to function for their loving purpose of defending and saving innocent lives. But protecting yourself, your family, and other innocent people is getting harder because of bad politicians and foolish voters.

Remember, our Democrat Governor has already sent the message that you can get away with murder and he’s even let convicted murderers go loose. What’s more, California voters didn’t think critically about how approving Proposition 47 in 2014 and other soft-on-crime measures endanger you, your family, and your neighbors, by increasing thefts, robberies, assaults, rapes, and murders.

I recently learned that 62,000 otherwise law-abiding Californians have been denied bullets and shotgun shells. This includes members of law enforcement, who would never officially be labeled a “prohibited person” who can’t legally possess ammunition. These 62,000 “safe” folks were prohibited from buying between July and November this year.

These denials of Californians’ Second Amendment rights are happening because of Proposition 63 in 2016. Multi-million-dollar deception from Prop. 63 sponsors Gavin Newsom and the California Democratic Party resulted in foolish voters passing this scheme to require background checks and registration for ammunition, among other restrictions.

And unless and until a constitutional lawsuit gets this struck down in the federal courts, Californians interested in basic safety for themselves and their families will suffer from uncomfortable bureaucratic hurdles, unjust delays, higher expenses, and lack of privacy.

Here’s the Rhode lawsuit and other Second Amendment cases of which reasonable Californians hope will eventually free up their ammunition purchases again: 

“The lawsuit, titled Rhode v. Becerra, challenges California’s new ammunition sales restrictions as a violation of the Second Amendment and Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.

“The filing of Rhode marks the fourth lawsuit filed by CRPA attorneys with support from the NRA challenging the provisions of Proposition 63 and the other ‘Gunmageddon’ bills. Once such lawsuit, titled Duncan v. Becerra, has already succeeded in obtaining an important injunction against Proposition 63’s ban on the possession of magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds. The other two lawsuits, titled Rupp v. Becerra and Villanueva v. Becerra (both of which challenge California’s ‘assault weapon’ restrictions and registration requirements), are also seeking injunctions while those lawsuits are pending.” Source

So, until relief is granted, here’s how to buy ammo in California:

1. You can no longer buy ammunition out of state and bring it back yourself or have a seller ship it to you.

2. You can buy online, but your ammunition must be shipped to a licensed vendor in California, who will charge you a processing fee of around $20:

“To dispel the confusion, yes, ammunition can still be bought online or through a catalog. However, you can’t have ammunition sent directly to your residence. Furthermore, your packages must be shipped first to a licensed ammunition vendor who must then charge you a processing fee.” Source

3. When buying at a store or online, you must pay for a $1 instant background check. If your name and address on file with the Department of Justice matches your California Drivers License name and address, then you can buy. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

If you pass the $1 background check, you can buy ammunition right there at the store counter, yet the sale will now be accompanied by paperwork listing who you are, what you bought, how much you bought, the salesman’s name, etc. This amounts to “backdoor registration” on ammunition sales, since the government will now know what you own and how much you own (it’s not known how long the State will hold onto your information).

4. Unfortunately, you’ll fail your instant $1 background check if your DL name and address doesn’t match your DOJ registration, or if you don’t have already have a firearm registered in your name with DOJ. If denied, you’ll pay $19 for a deeper DOJ background check that will further invade your privacy and could take a couple months to conditionally pass you. See the information you must provide.

“The DOJ says in court filing more than 19,000 ammunition buyers weren’t in the database at all, so they were denied when they went to buy ammo. More than 22,000 were rejected because of address mismatches, many of them due to having moved since they last bought a gun. Nearly 8,000 people had names in the state’s gun registry that didn’t match their identification, according to the Department of Justice filing.” Source

5. Stop and realize that California’s Democrat-controlled government wants your private information so they can send police to take your gun away if you’re considered a threat:

Under the state’s “red flag” laws, Californians can petition a court to have police remove firearms from those threatening to harm themselves or others. The law was recently expanded to allow teachers, employers and coworkers to seek the temporary removal of firearms from the homes of people making threats.

“Because of this DOJ database, (it) allows law enforcement to know that that person has arms, to know what kind of arms they have and to know where they reside, so they can ensure that the people who have been subject to threats are safe and that guns are removed from that dangerous situation,” he said. Source

6. To avoid the intensive and lengthy $19 background check that locks your details into the state database, an expert gun shop manager told me he would avoid this process by simply buying a new firearm. This way, he said, you’re only updating your address.

He also said to stop by an expert shop anywhere in California to ask about the process, since if you have an existing firearm that you bought years ago, and have since moved, you can verbally provide the gun store with a California address where your firearm was and is registered with the state.

Either way, this automated online update can take up to 48 hours. He said if you’re declaring an existing firearm already registered with the State, you must provide your old address, your new address, and your gun information, including its serial number.

7. The gun store expert I talked with also told me that if I bought a handgun before 1991, I wouldn’t have to declare my purchase at all, since there were no California handgun registrations required before that year. He also said that registrations for handguns purchased between 1991 and 1996 have not necessarily been retained by the State, and that 2012 was the first year the state required registration for long guns.

So there you have it. My next ammunition purchase, I will do my homework in advance and work with a gun store that I trust. But if I were low on ammo, I would quickly assemble any needed paperwork, and talk with an expert at my first opportunity. Lastly, I’d compare prices for online suppliers that still ship ammunition to California, like this one does.

However, if you want to prevent theft, avoid a home-invasion robbery, and not have to confront someone breaking in, the very first thing I recommend you do is harden your doors and windows. See this product, which will make your doors virtually kick-proof.

In closing, the Democrat politicians’ attack upon guns and ammunition is wrong-headed. Crimes committed with guns are a sin problem, and if guns are outlawed, outlaws will still have guns. And if outlaws couldn’t get guns, they’d hurt or murder others with sharp or heavy instruments (as they’ve done through the centuries).

A culture that doesn’t acknowledge sin commits even more sin and crimes, and, in its denial, psychologically projects upon guns and gun owners the blame for the sins of individual criminals. Yet reasonable people should reject these anti-gun lies and protect their families by fully exercising their Second Amendment rights.

The first step in stopping mass shooters is a realization among people that nobody in government is going to get it done. A realization that includes an understanding of what it’s come down to. Hard to digest for Christians, but the realization that we have to be the protectors that this country needs. Not just spiritually. But physically, should it be necessary. And that means being ready to do whatever is necessary should a shooting breakout where we are.
The Christian Gun Owner Role In Stopping Mass Shooters

It’s about to hit the fan, but we’re on it

Friday, November 1, 2019, 5:28 pm | Randy Thomasson

A lot is about to “hit the fan,” starting in January 2020. Bad new laws affecting families. Bad new curriculum indoctrinating children. And bad new policies impacting all Californians.

Yes, you can blame the Democrat politicians, who rule the roost in Sacramento. But what will you and I do about it? And how can we, together, love our neighbor — specifically, children and their parents, grandparents, property owners, and voters?

Here’s what’s coming your way, and why we must jump into action:

1. Disgusting new sexual indoctrination curriculum for kids in K-12 public schools. The perverse brainwashing and gross practices of the “California Healthy Youth Act” will sexually indoctrinate children like never before.

This year, the Democrat-run State Board of Education approved “guidelines” for all school districts. So you can expect this to ramp up come January. We need to be ready!

Here’s the big problem: Under the cloak of teaching (but really, forcing) children as young as kindergarten “to develop healthy attitudes concerning adolescent growth and development, body image, gender, sexual orientation, relationships, marriage, and family,” and “to promote understanding of sexuality as a normal part of human development,” AB 329 has quickly morphed into teaching kids that virtually anything and everything goes.

The sexual anarchy in this devilish curriculum guidelines now includes positive teaching about (and I’m going to write in code):

s_x toys
lub_ic_nts
mas_urb_tion
an_l s_x
bond_ge and sad_mas_ch_sm
especially related to “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” and “gender expression”

From my read, AB 329 and its applicable curriculum teaches children a new amoral ethic: “You can have as much sexual contact as you want, involving pleasure or pain, with any number of people, in any number of ways, as long as it’s consensual.”

That’s the bad news of what boys and girls will get under the misnamed “California Healthy Youth Act.” And, of course, children won’t be told about any negative health consequences. But since kids can’t look away, neither should we.

Yet in light of this terrible attack upon children’s minds, one thing is clear — we must do what we can to help rescue kids by reaching and activating parents and grandparents!

With your generous gift today, SaveCalifornia.com can inform California families by building a new online center that exposes this awful new curriculum threatening precious children.

With your good-hearted help, SaveCalifornia.com will build a new online center that exposes this awful new curriculum targeting children. From here, we will do creative outreaches to alert and convince as many fathers and mothers as we can.

And what else is coming your way?

2. A boatload of very bad new laws imposed by the ruling Democrat politicians. Gavin Newsom and the Democrat-controlled California State Legislature are handing out abortion pills to college girls and telling boys to be “girls” and girls to be “boys.” And Newsom and the Democrats are awarding the rights of citizens to illegal aliens, threatening the rights of law-abiding gun owners, and trampling the choices of independent contractors. Along with many other bad laws grinding down our way of life.

Fortunately, with technology, we can work to get around the biased Big Media, which want to keep folks in the dark. Instead, we’ll reach and inform people with facts and evidence.

With your helpful donation today, SaveCalifornia.com will launch a bold new campaign reporting to voters what they get with the Democrats. It’s about time, don’t you think?
