Sent out what I could in snail mail today. Thanks for all the work you guys do. Exciting times right now. As flawed as our country can be I see what's great about it also watching the fight to regain our second amendment rights/ Its also entertaining..like a movie in a way. You guys would be the heros in that hypothetical movie. If you need someone to volunteer ever near Sacramento PM me.

The IRS had a couple of additional questions that we expect to resolve this month.

Note that upon granting of (c)(3) status, the status is fully retroactive to our founding last year.

I went out to make a donation via paypal today, but receive an error that "This recipient is unable to receive payments."

What's up?

You can. All you need to do is send a check to:
The Calguns Foundation
3200 Bridge Parkway, Suite 202C
Redwood City, CA 94065

We have Paypal as a convenience for those who don't want to use billpay or mail a check.

I'm ready to make a donation as well. Someone please let us know when the Calguns PayPal account is back up.

And yes, I know I can mail a check, but I don't want to. PayPal is so easy.

Paypal is sooo easy, but they charge ~3% and are NOT gun friendly...AT ALL!

I will be mailing a check. What I\we take away from this forum, needs to be supplemented back with a little $ on our end!

Thank you Calguns.net!!!!

I figure with as many guns as I sell here, it would be a good idea to give some back to support one of the most important issues facing our constitutional freedom and liberty. 2% of all sales will be sent in to back a great cause. Thank you Calguns.

What is the problem with Paypal? Anti-gun?

Why is it FUD? They are part of ebay. You know, the lame auction site who stopped allowing gun parts to be sold on their site because the VaTech shooter bought some gun parts off of ebay. And try sending a PayPal transfers to people for gun stuff and see what your success rate is (there is a reason people request "discrete paypal").

I have heard things that suggest that eBay and Paypal are overly cautious and afraid of any gun related liability. I have never heard of them being actively anti-gun.

There is a difference.

We have a working paypal account again. However, the online links haven't been updated yet.

If you want to use paypal in the interim to donate to The Calguns Foundation, please donate using the email address paypal@calgunsfoundation.org .

Happened on the 23rd of this month exactly one month from the June 23rd donation date.

Did you really try "payapl@calgunsfoundation.org" - as you put in your copy and paste?

Or did you use - paypal@calgunsfoundation.org ?
