Anyone can request to get their house blurred on street view. Go into street view, find your house, hit "report a problem" (or the little flag), make the square cover the area you want blurred, then choose the reason.

Congratulations on your emergence from the shadows of “nothingness”.

I now understand your frustration with your failed attempts to obtain magazines, and apologize if you found my comments harsh. (I’ve since deleted what may have been the harshest). But, “next time” won’t be a window...it’ll be a wide open door or a stone wall. We will need to prepare to go through either.

It’s vitally important to us that folks like you come off the bench and stay in the fight as we age-out. You’re new, and having now come into the light, it’s important to stay engaged.

On the positive side, now that you’ve had some forced savings from the mag-madness, may I also suggest donations to CRPA? They and the NRA backed the Prop 63 lawsuit, and have many more in the pipeline. Plus, Duncan v. Becerra will now go to appeal, and that will define the door/window or wall we will face in the future.

Also, you may want to set aside some cash and keep an eye out towards the end of the year for opportunities to upgrade your NRA membership at substantial savings.

Welcome to Calguns and congratulations on getting into the fight.

Best.

To be clear, I never assumed you knew anything; I still don’t.

The question, arising from Newsom’s purchase of a multi-million dollar home, was, “How do full-time politicians get so rich.?”

To which you responded, “By taking bribes...”. (You did add Willie Brown as an example, with which I agree, but the question arose regarding Newsom).

My input was to simply note that, in Newsom’s case, he was rich when he was born, and got richer before he was a politician. While he may have indulged in other activities once appointed/elected, he didn’t use bribes to get rich.

He did it the old-fashioned way; he inherited it.

Best.

I remember reading a Jack London book, where a character who's life was built on inherited wealth. The protagonist said to him: "your standing on a dead man's legs"

Inheriting wealth is not quite the same thing as earning it yourself. And no doubt, his family wealth help get him into the right schools, into the right circle of friends in business, and into the right connections into politics.

But even if he grew up, and pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, I still call him an elitist for believing he knows what best for the rest of us peasants.

Damn. I was all set to order and then I saw the “#FREECALI” on the back. “Cali” is something that only non-Californians and people from L.A. say. I just can’t do it. Reluctant pass.

Inheriting wealth is not earning it. It's not the same thing as earning it with your own labor, not your father's or grandfather's.
Ironically (and well) placed, as Jack London was also born in San Francisco and was a Socialist.....

He was a great story teller. He was also an avowed racist, but later in life became ambivalent towards socialism. I guess most everyone grows up when faced with eny reality and experience to shows that socialism is just a pipe dream.

The new progressivism sweeping the country, and has been control of California for the past three decades. Hopefully the pendulum will swing the other way before the state goes bankrupt, and Constitutional rights is determined by majority vote.

find it somewhat odd that account felt it was important enough to espouse such here for second time as well as on psa's site... reckon simply another example which reaffirms stigma surrounding 2a communities' perspective toward ca gun owners in general.

i'll snag one regardless; cool design.

Thanks to Duncan v. Bercerra, a case funded by the California Rifle & Pistol Association, I was able to buy standard capacity magazines a couple weeks ago. Which is the event this shirt is commemorating.

Luckily for me, I was able to get my PSA order in right after they started accepting Californian orders, prior to them hiking magazine prices in order to squeeze a bit of extra cash out of the cow. Reply ·

I thought it was funny because so many people here complaining about cancelled orders and that guy is complaining about squeezing extra cash.

It is an intriguing business plan....

Not sustainable, but, intriguing...

There is an actually CA bill that does that, along with hiding where politicians live in general from records. Funny thing is it makes it easier to find them.
