Automatic weapon owners under attack by mealy-minded liberals in California, take heart. Although the Golden State will make possession of many types of semi-automatic weapons illegal at the end of this year, the good folks at FRONT SIGHT FIREARMS TRAINING INSTITUTE have graciously launched a program to store your precious weapons for you at their facility in Nevada, where your guns aren’t (yet) illegal.

Just like Saddam Hussein stashed his military aircraft in Iran to avoid American bombardment, you too can now protect your martial assets from government tyranny! All you need to do is, er, drop up to $1,000 on one of Front Sight’s valuable training classes.

THIS IS BIG FOR US.

And we won't beat around the bush: Our fundraising drive to finish our current budget on June 30 and start our new fiscal year on July 1 is lagging behind where we need it to be.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please consider joining your fellow readers with a donation to help make it all possible. Whether you can pitch in $5 or $500, it all matters.

If you're new to Mother Jones or aren't yet sold on supporting our nonprofit reporting, please take a moment to read Monika Bauerlein's post about our priorities after these chaotic several years, and why this relatively quiet moment is also an urgent one for our democracy and Mother Jones’ bottom line—and if you find it compelling, please join us.
