    Operation Golden State Thunder Begins on Monday, June 14, 2010

    Time is short - please give now what you can at http://www.opencarry.org/goldenstate.html

    Let Our Voices Ring Out Like Thunder!

    Time is short to save open carry rights in California - a setback in California will be viewed by the Brady Bunch and other anti-gun rights extremists as a strategic victory against our second Amendment rights with nation-wide repercussions.

    Though the California Assembly has passed Assemblywoman Lori Saldana's AB 1934 to criminalize honorable open carry, the vote in the Senate is not assured for her - and our job is to make it assured victory for us!

    Please donate what you can IMMEDIATELY so we can run pro-open carry radio ads in critical Senatorial "swing-districts" from San Diego to Los Angeles to San Jose to Redding - with your help, pro-gun voters in those districts will be alerted by our radio campaign to ensure their Senator votes correctly - that is, pro-gun.

    Anyone donating $100 or more will have their OCDO member status updated to "Anti-Saldana Freedom Fighter."

    Whether you live in California or not, now would be the time to step up to the plate and take a swing for FREEDOM!

    Let's quickly raise enough money to pound the California metro radio markets and cause coffee spills by anti-gun commuters from the 405 to the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Carry on!

    OK, I will try to make that $10,000 donation again then when my wife is not looking - but I could not see how to do it - the menu only goes up to $100.

    Since I'm being called out I also donated.

    If you've found value in this site or the Open Carry Movement you'll do the same.

    If you don't have the time to get out there and change hearts & minds, stop bad laws, and educate the public on responsible gun ownership, please provide resources to those that have made time by donating today.

    Can someone give me a run down on this, it has been awhile since my California Government class..

    It looks like is has not been passed by the senate or the Assembly yet, correct? Once both pass then we wait for Arnold to pass it. So currently we can still open carry correct?

    Correctamundo. It's now law yet. If it ever becomes law, it will be after McDonald vs. Chicago is settled.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    I think 1934 WAS passed by the assembly, but has not been considered by the senate.

    Right, but Saldana knows she is in for a hard time in the Senate and some amendments are floating to make the bill just a little less onerous so it can pass - our job is to KILL the bill in the Senate - email your Senator today and follow up with a phone call and maybe a visit.

    Our local senator is already on board. I sent six hand written letters to the members of the Senate committee reviewing the bill. My wife wrote three more of them.

    At this point, we just need more money - a lot more so we can hit all the major areas where Senators need to hear form constituents.

    URGENT UPDATE - July 6, 2010: The fight against AB 1934 is heating up!

    As you may know, California Assemblywoman Saldana's open carry ban AB 1934 has passed the Senate Public Safety Committee. Traditionally, the next step a bill would take is to be heard by the Senate Appropriations Committee which in this case would happen on Monday July 12th.

    However, AB 1934 has been recommended to bypass the Appropriations Committee and proceed directly to the floor of the Senate for an up or down vote. This recommendation is based upon the fact that the bill is reported to have a fiscal impact of less than $50,000.

    You and I both know this is incorrect because in a post McDonald environment, unloaded open carry (though far from perfect) is the only self-defense option available to millions of Californians who are not sufficiently politically connected to receive one of the arbitrarily issued concealed carry permits. Therefore, passage of AB 1934 would subject the taxpayers of California to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees defending Second Amendment challenges.

    And should AB 1934 make it past the Appropriations Committee, either via a bypass or by passage, a final floor vote is expected in early August.

    This means that we have less than a month to ensure that Senators are aware of the fiscal, legal and public policy ramifications of voting for this misguided anti-civil-rights bill.

    At OpenCarry.org, we have been trying to spread the word via radio ads. Listen to one of our ads at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgJmg1lVQ7M . To date, we have spent $2,480 on ads but have only raised $1,205 in donations. While Mike and I are glad to spend money out of our own pockets for these campaigns, we simply cannot afford to run the ads that are necessary to combat this bill without your support.

    If you are able, please go to our donation page at http://www.opencarry.org/goldenstate.html and give as generously as you can! EVERY PENNY GIVEN GOES DIRECTLY TO THE RADIO ADS!

    And even if you cannot support the effort financially, if you are a California voter, please contact your Senator and let them know that you expect them to vote against AB 1934!

    Go to http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html and enter your zip code to find contact information for your Senator.

    Carry On!

    $1575.00- Really?

    AB1934 is going to the Senate floor in about a month, and time is running short to make a measurable impact.

    I think we can do better at passing the hat around than this. That's why I have sent my donation in and Ive been contemplating offering a special premium for California members making a benchmark donation.

    Tell me what it is going to take to seperate you from your coin, before we are seperated from our handguns... Anyone?
