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.”

Why I oppose the impeachment of President Donald Trump

Wednesday, December 18, 2019, 10:17 am | Randy Thomasson

On this historic day, when the impeachment power of Congress is blatantly misused by the ruling Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, here is what I told the media in a SaveCalifornia.com news release. I hope it’ll help you as you talk about it too.

Why independent voter Randy Thomasson opposes Trump’s impeachment
“Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime.”

Sacramento, California (December 18, 2019) — In light of today’s expected vote of the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump, Randy Thomasson, an independent voter and president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family issues organization promoting moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement: 

“If you were falsely charged with a crime, you’d demand due process and evidence. Unfortunately, we’re seeing neither of these ethical and constitutional rights in the House Democrats’ impeachment push against President Donald Trump.

“‘Abuse of power’ is a fact-free charge, since U.S. presidents are permitted tremendous latitude in their relations with other countries. For President Trump to ask the new Ukraine leader to demonstrate his anti-corruption campaign agenda by investigating how former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, famously enriched themselves in Ukraine, was not only permissible, it was the right thing to do. Ironically, it’s the House Democrats who are abusing their power by providing no evidence at all that President Trump committed any crime, yet they’re still trying to reverse an election through impeachment.

“‘Obstruction of Congress,’ the second empty charge, is only because the Trump Administration refused to testify and to provide confidential information that the House Democrats’ “impeachment inquiry” demanded. Yet numerous presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, have both claimed and used executive privilege, based on constitutional separation of powers. The U.S. Supreme Court has not opined that this is ‘obstruction,’ so neither should the ruling Democrats.

“Impeachment leaders Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime committed by President Trump. This unconstitutional act is likely to backfire on them politically. Perhaps it already has, since independent voters oppose impeachment 49% to 34%.

“As a registered independent, I wasn’t able to vote for Trump, but I am morally obligated to oppose the Democrats’ impeachment charade due to lack of evidence. Because evidence is the only fair standard for charging or convicting anybody.”

— end —

Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity,
And sin as if with a cart rope;
That say, “Let Him make speed and hasten His work,
That we may see it;
And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come,
That we may know it.”
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

Isaiah 5:18-23

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.
