Organized youth shooting is disappearing in California as a result of a new law sold as banning advertising guns to kids but also potentially penalizes any promotion of firearms to minors. Rightfully criticized as a totalitarian attack on gun-oriented speech, the law is also an example of desperation on the part of those opposed to firearms

"Due to recent legislation from the California State Assembly, and signed into Law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, the USA Clay Target League, DBA USA High School Clay Target League/California State High School Clay Target League, has been forced by law to suspend all operations within California," USA Clay Target League notes on its website. "California Assembly Bill 2571 … provides for a civil penalty of $25,000 for any and each instance of firearm-related marketing to persons under the age of 18. That includes the '… use, or ownership of firearm-related products…' as well as '…events where firearm-related products are sold or used.'"

The law's chilling effect on shooting sports extends to simple speech involving minors and firearms.

"Due to California Bill A.B. 2571, Junior Shooters is no longer available to juniors (Under 18) from the state of California," the youth-oriented publication warns online. "If you are a minor in California, please do not continue, otherwise, welcome to Junior Shooters."

Understandably, the publishers of Junior Shooters are suing the state of California with the assistance of the Second Amendment Foundation.

The lawmakers don't care about the damage they are doing to kids interested in shooting sports. But then they don't believe in anyone having any guns.

I feel sorry for the kids in California.
They don't believe in citizens having any rights.
"Rights" are for the elites in California, not the average person.
