****Urgent  PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Candidate Lamalfa refuses to answer questions relating to the BLM threats of deadly force against American Citizens, including whether he is in favor of defunding the illegal law enforcement actions of BLM, and what he is going to do to prevent BLM from taking such actions in Shasta County. READ THE LETTER HERE. Stating that one believes in the Constitution is meaningless unless you are actually going to take a stand. Citizens merely want to know Lamalfa's views, what he believes, and what specific actions he intends to do. Saying it shouldn't have happened isn't good enough! Voters need to start demanding answers! Is Lamalfa going to wait for BLM to start threatening Shasta County Residents with deadly force before we know what his viewpoints are?  Mr. Lamalfa, we don't want a Ruby Ridge in Shasta County. So what are you going to do about it? They are straight forward questions, and with Nevada and now Texas land grabs by BLM, the issue is not going away. Coordination between all elected representatives, the  Board of Supervisors, the Sheriff, and WE THE PEOPLE is required. Now is the time.

    Comment  from an Assistant District Attorney who completed the Shasta Defense 20 hour CCW course

"Personal teaching ... A course I would recommend to those interested in learning, not simply trying to get a CCW Permit". 

Sheriff urges you to arm yourself! Article is Here

For California Concealed Weapons Permits. Sheriff issued permit valid for entire state of California. 

 Our Constitutional Sheriff issues Concealed Weapon Permits, and desires that more Citizens be armed.  Do you think you and your family are exempt from violent predators?  So, why don't you have your CCW? Why aren't you armed as an American Citizen should be? 

With the present economic and social climate,  you may recognize the need to legally carry a firearm not only at home but in public in order to defend yourself and family from violence. Or possibly you desire to better incorporate a firearm into your home defense plan. In either case, why not maximize your training and knowledge?  Many believe that the Shasta Defense initial course (range and classroom) provides more individual instruction, coaching, personal training, and exposure than other initial CCW classes.  

With Shasta Defense class sizes (4 maximum) students, you receive meaningful coaching so that you can become comfortable and competent with your firearm. The reality is that if you have to use your firearm for self defense, at that point in time it is too late to be wishing you had obtained the training you actually needed.    Between class sessions, students are to study the materials and perform daily dry fire practice as instructed during class.  The Shasta Defense instruction includes personal extensive hands on range training with your firearm under close instructor supervision and coaching.  The Shasta Defense courses exceed the requirements of California State Law. You are voluntarily obtaining the extra training. This merely recognizes that the time for education and training is before you have to consider drawing or using your firearm. 

Instructor Background:   Certified NRA Pistol Instructor, Certified NRA Rifle Instructor; Certified NRA Range Safety Officer; Certified NRA Personal Protection in the Home Instructor; Approved Firearms Instructor for CCW instruction classes required for original and  renewal permit applications in Shasta County and Tehama County (permits valid for entire State of California); and California Attorney at Law.

If you are using a firearm for personal defense at home (even if you don't desire a CCW), you should seriously consider taking this course or equivalent instruction. The legal requirements as to defending you and your loved ones by resort to deadly force apply to you, even at home. Legal and civil consequences follow the use of a firearm. American citizens need to know the rules of lethal force and the rules of gun safety. 

Class Information: Shasta Defense classes are designed to teach the practical and legal use of a handgun in self defense.  Topics include: firearms safety, personal safety and avoiding confrontations, mental awareness, carrying concealed handguns, the legal use of deadly force and practical range training. During this course, you will learn skills, including: proper steps in drawing from a strong side holster, moving off the line of attack, firing (or not firing when threat ceases), reloading, scanning and assessing, and re-holstering. You will engage targets at ranges from 7 yards to body contact with "attacker"  (utilizing weapon retention skills). Training will also include: shooting from longer distances (you need to know your practical limitations, and legal), learning about your reactionary gap (Tueller drill), safe hand changes, and one handed shooting (left and right hands). Also, what do you say to the police after a shooting? Who do you call? How do you respond when officers arrive and you are armed?  Please note that not all courses conducted by other instructors provide instruction on the proper drawing from a holster. I view this as a necessary safety procedure. After all, upon issuance of a CCW, you will be carrying a loaded firearm in a holster. Don't you think you need to be skilled in how to draw and re-holster?  See this link for more about course coverage.

You don't control the time or place evil will strike.  You do control your knowledge, competence, and skill level for response.

Contact: To Register for a class, or advise of date convenient for you, please call in advance:   530-474-3267.  Classes are in Shingletown.

         Please provide your name, telephone number, and the class date you wish to attend.
