$10,000 Assault gun challenge to anti-2nd amendment and Del Mar Gun Show protesters
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego County Gun Owners political action committee is issuing a $10,000 challenge to any anti-gun extremist or anti-Second Amendment extremist. They held a press conference at 11:00 AM at Gunfire Tactical gun store on Miramar Road to announce the challenge. You can watch it below.
Michael Schwartz, SDCGO Executive Director, commented on the controversy by saying, “in an effort to ban guns and shut down the Crossroads of the West gun show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, legal gun owners have been demonized as criminals. And, gun show opponents have purposely spread lies and misinformation, such as adults and minors can break the law at the guns show and buy machine guns and assault weapons and avoid background checks and 10-day waiting periods.”
“Therefore, we are issuing a $10,000 challenge to anyone who can show proof they bought a machine gun or assault weapon at the Del Mar gun show or they bought a firearm at the guns show without a background check or 10-day waiting period. If anyone can show proof, then SDCGO will donate $10,000 to their favorite charity. Although we recommend to anybody planning to break the law should begin saving for their legal defense fund because their legal fees will probably well exceed $10,000” Schwartz said.
In his interview, Schwartz explains how the press conference was originally scheduled to be held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a publicly owned property. However, Schwartz says, “State employees who manage the fairgrounds made additional demands that are impossible to meet, including additional costs for use of the public property, security, insurance and other unreasonable demands because SDCGO believes fairgrounds staff doesn’t like the content of the news story and doesn’t want us to talk to the press. We were told by staff that these additional demands are because the content for the press conference is `gun stuff.'”
San Diego County Gun Owners believes the fairground staff’s efforts to create arbitrary roadblocks to news coverage of a newsworthy story on state-owned public property by a public agency in a public forum in unconstitutional.
