    California Open Carry Legal Defense Fund

    The Calguns Foundation has started a Legal Defense fund where you can donate to this cause.

    Theseus has been unloaded open carrying for the better part of a year in East LA County, an area known for violent gang crimes and assaults against peaceful law abiding (but unarmed) citizens. He has carried in compliance with ALL state laws to be able to defend his young wife and daughter as every free American has a Right to do.

    He has also shown and proven that it can be done responsibly and that the public doesn't react with panic and terror at the mere sight of a peacefully holstered sidearm.

    Theseus has been charged with but did not violate the School Zone gun prohibition. He has always been very careful to stay within the law (a Calguns specialty ) When he was contacted by police he was not arrested as his possession was legal.

    It was not until the police went back 3 DAYS LATER WITH A MEASURING DEVICE did the officers realize that it was even within 1000' of a school. THE POLICE DID NOT EVEN KNOW IT WAS IN A "SCHOOL ZONE" at the time Theseus was contacted! A report was sent to the DA's Office and they filed charges (no mention was made that Theseus was on private property).

    He was clearly on Private Property, which is also clearly exempted from the school zone law:

    626.9. (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as the
    Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1995.

    (b) Any person who possesses a firearm in a place that the person
    knows, or reasonably should know, is a school zone...

    (c) Subdivision (b) does not apply to the possession of a firearm
    under any of the following circumstances:
    (1) Within a place of residence or place of business or on private
    Theseus is well represented by Bruce Colodny, Esq. , one of So Cals finest 2nd Amendment defense attorneys. I'm told that Bruce has every confindence that Theseus will be shown to have been legal in his self defense firearm possession.

    Please join me and many other Calgunners in supporting Theseus, a law abiding American, Father and Husband, against this politically motivated charge and send a message that the SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE BILL OF RIGHTS means what it says and that we will

    Please give whatever you can afford. None of us are safe in the face of these unconstitutional laws and politically motivated charges. This could easily some day be you. Will you not now stand with him? Together we are stronger!

    Please donate today. All monies not used will be placed into the Calguns Foundation Fund to be used to further the fight for our Basic Human Self Defense Rights.


    note: unloaded open carry in CA means having separate loaded magazines (as required by PC 12031 when inside city limits)
