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.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.

  • Vince Beiser, a former Mother Jones senior editor, has reported from more than 30 countries—on troop training in Iraq, natural disasters in Haiti, and prison conditions in California.
