Don Bird Continues Unique Battle

by Brian Puckett
President, Citizens of America

February 21, 2002 — Don Bird filed a lawsuit in California to regain the free exercise of his right to keep and bear arms. KABA has reported on Mr. Bird's Second Amendment lawsuit against the Governor of California in two previous articles:

Mr. Bird's battle continues with his request that governor Gray Davis be issued a writ of mandamus, which is a court order forcing the governor to admit that Mr. Bird — and thus all other Californians — has an individual right to keep and bear arms.

As noted in the earlier reports, in response to Mr. Bird's previously filed documents, California governor Gray Davis claims,

  • "That is, Plaintiff [Mr. Bird] has no legally recognized right to bear arms under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution."
  • "...the Constitution does not provide a private right to bear arms."
  • "...the Second Amendment does not protect the possession of a weapon by a private citizen."

If this outrages you, then Mr. Bird would like you to stand with him in at 10 AM on Thursday, February 21, in the Federal Court Building (Dept. 24, 8th Floor, 501 I Street) Sacramento, California.

Don has carried on this fight virtually alone, with but little help from pro-gun rights attorneys, because he's an outstanding man and an outstanding American patriot.

If you can't be there with him in person, an email of encouragement can be sent to him at
