San Jose CA Gun Ownership Tax

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing the city of San Jose, California over their unconstitutional gun ownership tax and liability insurance mandate. San Jose passed a “first-of-its-kind” ordinance early in 2022 imposing an annual tax on gun owners simply for exercising their Second Amendment rights.

If this tax is allowed to stand, every left-leaning local government across the country will quickly follow. A victory here will help protect people everywhere from outrageous laws like this.

California Data Breach Lawsuit

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing California Attorney General Rob Bonta for the outrageous leak of gun owners’ personal data, including full names, dates of birth, race, home addresses, driver’s license numbers, permit issue dates, and criminal histories (if any). This leak violated the Second and Fourth amendments of the Constitution in what appears to be a retaliatory move immediately following the Supreme Court’s pro-gun Bruen ruling. We are arguing that it is unconstitutional for California to collect, maintain, or disclose their citizens’ sensitive personal information in connection with the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms.
