    When is someone going to tell Saldana that fear of guns is a form of OCD and is treatable, and phobias do not trump the 2nd amendment.

    Printed on the building's entrance in large, bold letters are the words "FEDERAL BUILDING". I wouldn't risk it by carrying there. Knowing the freedom-hating Assemblyman Saldana, she probably chose the venue knowing this.

    Maybe I'm the only one, but...

    ...does anyone know anything more about this Catfish Club than what is posted on their "About Us" page? I would hate to pay $20 to attend this debate only to find out they support the democrat party or some other socialist organization. Maybe its just me, but I'm very careful as to who I give my hard earned liberty loving money to.

    All Saldana and her group got out of Heller and McDonald is reasonable regulation. They missed the part about being able to carry a weapon in case of confrontation and some mumbo jumbo about "shall not be infringed". I think they call that "cherry picking". I would consider it a waste of time, as they haven't listened to anyone yet. I'll spend my $20 on something else.

    The CATFISH CLUB is described as being made up of racially diverse individuals,the "movers" and "shakers" of San Diegos minority community.I can say this much.Lori Saldana does NOT give speeches to "Conservative" audiences.

    I would go UOC but not if it's a Federal building

    Thanks to whomever it was that posted that it is a FEDERAL BUILDING. Sorry, can't remember the posters' name right now. Haven't had my coffee yet.

    I would go UOC IF it were legal.

    We could always go just to stand outside and heckle her

    I would love to do that. Bring a sign (or a bullhorn) to voice your displeasure. Let her know that we will dog her to death if she runs for the State Senate - A very REAL possibility.

    Some of these "Representatives" make our lives miserable by their foolish bills that they author.

    Let's give a little back while she is still in office.

    Yeah, there is definitely more than one way to skin a cat.

    I may not be UOC, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

    Did you get a chance to watch her final remarks at the Senate public safety committee where she talked about how some brazen person drove all the way across California to come to the commonwealth club meeting and then carried a concealed weapon into the building? Just be sure to carry a sign saying that she's attempting to violate everybody's civil rights or something so she doesn't seemingly get more ammo for people doing completely legal things.

    Now there's an idea. Really, what is with this 'debate' stuff. Debates are for losers and she's definitely on the losing side. The socialists can hate the keeping and bearing of guns all they want. We have McDonald now. I say we UOC (if legal) outside, don't give this club our money, and picket the very idea that she would debate our natural law, and protected, rights of self defense and the keeping and bearing of arms.

    Then, if it makes you feel any better you can give your $20 to either OCDO, CGF, SAF, NAGR, GOA, GOC, NRA, or the CRPA.

    Perhaps if Saldana has her armed, hired goons with her (as she did at another recent venue) we should all wear our vests. You know, to keep us safe from her goons' gunfire!

    I kinda like that idea, but you would have to make it utterly clear that this is the reason why you were doing it- That because Saldana's postion is that people being armed for defense is such a danger to the community, that it must also be true with her armed body guards... And of course, some reasonable message into the fact that she wants to deny the protection that we seek, while indulging herself in the benefit of armed defense.

    Exactly. The hypocrisy factor.

    Yep, I saw that. She even posted my blog story on her Facebook page.

    I'm sure she prefaced it by saying, "Look at this Californian who is not only exercising his civil rights, but is also following all applicable laws. Such a stellar example!"

    Catfish club venue for Lori Saldana's ban on UOC in California

    This was the message that was received from "Rev George W Smith"

    We also asked him to confirm if the building is actually a "Federal building" but to date no actual response on the question...will keep you all posted

    The NRA and NGA will be in attendance

    Looks like the reverend would like one of the "gunslingers" to go head to head with Saldana to put our point of view across ...something we are good at

    From: revgwsmith <revgwsmith@aol.com>
    Subject: July 23 Catfish Club




    For more that 40 years the Catfish Club has provided an open public
    forum for San Diego. The uniqueness of the Catfish Club is while the
    dialogue can be unforgiving, the atmosphere is respectful. The
    discussion of the Open Carry legislation is an effort to understand the
    public policy being implemented by Assembly member Saldana. It goes
    without saying your right to carry an unloaded handgun is protected by
    California Law. The judgment for you and those for whom you are
    seeking clarification is, will the presence of unloaded handguns
    enhance your message or be unpleasant to some in attendance.

    We invite you or a member of your group to enter the debate with
    Assembly member Saldana and appear as a panelist-we would prefer
    unarmed, but that is your choice.

    Please contact me via email or at the phone number below, at your
    earliest convenience with a decision and the name of the individual who
    would appear with Ms. Saldana.

    The idea of a poster protest sounds good, especially if the media is there and is willing to cover the event fairly. Something to the tune of "Saldana's hypocrisy - she hires guns (with tax money?) to protect herself but denies equal protection to law-abiding citizens" theme.
