Our Official National Debt:
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance - Thomas Jefferson
The United States is a republic where We the People choose representatives to govern us and this land. It is our responsibility to become educated about and engaged in the political process.
We must influence elections, hold elected officials accountable and fight for our core values: Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. Organized by dedicated volunteers and maintained by an active membership, we ask YOU to GET INFORMED and GET ACTIVE.
On April 15, 2009 citizens converged at the corner of Orange and Redlands Blvd in downtown Redlands. With flags flying and signs waving we united to make our voice heard. The tea party movement and the Redlands Tea Party Patriots continue to grow in numbers and strength. Join us and volunteer today. To become a member click on the 'contact us' tab above.

ACTION ALERT: Need Gov'r Veto on Anti-gun / anti-hunting bills
Contact Governor Brown TODAY urging him to VETO all anti-gun/anti-hunting bills!
Governor Jerry Brown can be reached at 916-445-2841 and by e-mail here.
Urge Governor Brown to VETO the following bills:
Senate Bill 1366 – Lost and Stolen Reporting of Firearms
SB 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost. Law-abiding gun owners should not be made a victim twice and punished for theft of their firearm(s).
Assembly Bill 1527 – Open Carry Ban (of unloaded long guns)
AB 1527, introduced by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44), would expand on last year’s ban on open carrying of an unloaded handgun to also include unloaded rifles and shotguns.
Assembly Bill 2460 – Ban of Law Enforcement Transfer of Firearms
AB 2460, introduced by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson (D-9), would ban law enforcement officers from transferring handguns that are not on California’s approved “roster” to anyone but law enforcement officers. Currently, California law allows for the transfer of firearms that are not on the approved "roster" to be transferred to law-abiding civilians. These transfers must go through a licensed firearms dealer and are only transferred when the new civilian owner has passed a criminal background check.
Assembly Bill 2333 – Liability for Negligent Storage of BB Devices
AB 2333, introduced by Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-69), as amended, would expand California’s negligent storage law to any person who knowingly or reasonably should have known that a minor is likely to gain access to a BB device without the permission of the minor’s parents or legal guardian and the minor carries the BB device in a public place. The definition of “public place” includes a “front yard, driveway, doorway or entrance to a building or dwelling.” If a minor possesses a “BB device” that is visible from your own private property you and your child would be in violation. Violators would be subject to a civil penalty and/or community service.
