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.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
