We can’t defend the Second Amendment when they are not allowing us to exercise the 1st Amendment!
The California State Assembly and the Attorney General, however, are trying to silence us every step of the way. There is actually a law that allows them to do so!
But we WON a preliminary injunction against them in Federal Court yesterday!

Political speech, especially in support of the Second Amendment, should never be squashed by elitist politicians who want to shut us down.
Millions of good, law-abiding people are at risk of becoming criminals through dozens of new gun control bills and the most dangerous, anti-gun ballot initiative we’ve seen in decades.
Yet Section 9026.5 of the Government Code says it would be a crime for us to use video of the people’s Assembly hearings and votes in political speech, such as advertisements, emails, facebook posts etc.
Basically any normal way people communicate in the 21st Century.
The Attorney General could literally have us charged with a misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 6 months in county jail and a fine, for showing YOU what Kevin “Ghost Gun” de Leon and his comrades are doing to violate your rights in the Assembly.
And that is exactly why a Federal judge ruled in our favor to stop this law from being enforced.
Even though we won the first round, however, the State of California will more than likely be back and appeal our victory.
