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.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
