A photo is circulating online Wednesday showing California’s rules and restrictions for carrying a concealed weapon.
After a litany of items one is not allowed to do while concealing a weapon, the page reads, “Remember, it is a Privilege, not a right to carry a concealed weapon.”
Judging by the state of affairs in the Golden State, the legislators there are not very familiar with the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps they need a brief refresher on the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights, which reads:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
“[T]he right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” seems, at least to this reporter, to be a direct contradiction to the state of California’s assertion that carrying a concealed weapon is a “privilege.” At the very least, it seems that the state is infringing upon the right to keep and bear arms by making up bogus rules about what one can and cannot do with his own firearm. After all, the Second Amendment makes no stipulations about how, when, where or in what state of mind one may carry a weapon, concealed or otherwise.
Setting strict, arguably unconstitutional rules – which only hamper the ability of law-abiding citizens to carry weapons, considering that criminals simply disregard all rules – is called tyranny. It is tyranny that the people of California must reject.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
