San Bernardino, CA - Last night, at a meeting of the San Bernardino
National Rifle Association, members of California Young Americans for
Freedom (Cal YAF) heard California NRA Grassroots Director Ed Worley
urge San Bernardino NRA members to support State Senator Joe Baca in
the special election for the 42nd District Congressional seat vacated
by the late George Brown.
Cal YAF members attended the meeting to hand out literature detailing
Baca's anti-gun votes to the NRA members in attendance. Baca was the
principal co-author of AB 295, which placed even more regulations on
gun shows. Baca also voted for AB 1142 and SB 130. AB 1142 would
regulate how a gun is stored in a person's private home and set
penalties if they stored it otherwise and SB 130 was a government
mandated trigger lock program.
The CA NRA took no stand on AB 295, which was supported by the gun
show promoters who bowed down to the gun control advocates. The CA
NRA initially opposed AB 1142 but changed their position to neutral
for a watered down version of the same bill. The CA NRA opposed SB
"From the time Joe Baca began running for Congress in mid-July, he
did not vote against a single gun control bill," said Cal YAF
Advisory Board Member and State Senator Ray Haynes (R-Riverside).
"Joe Baca is a fair-weather friend who cannot be trusted to oppose in
Congress what he refused to oppose in Sacramento," added Haynes.
"The NRA is part of the problem, they are worse than Handgun Control,
Inc.," said Chad Morgan, Chairman of Orange County YAF. "At least
with Handgun Control, Inc., you know that they stand against freedom.
The NRA appears to support the rights of gun owners and then they
turn around and support someone who will allow our rights to be taken
away piece by piece," added Morgan.
"The NRA has turned the way of political prostitution; they are
selling their values and ethics for a false hope of buying
legislators," said Darren Marks, a California YAF State Director.
Members of Cal YAF will be turning in their memberships to the NRA
and will be asking anyone who supports the rights of gun owners to do
