CHALLENGE MET to Provide Funds to Fight SORNA Regulations. Thanks!

[Thanks to all of you who helped meet our goal to fund our fight SORNA regulations! Of course we encourage all to continue donations to ACSOL so we can expand our fight]

The sum of $1,200 has been provided to ACSOL in the form of a challenge grant in order to fight the federal government’s proposed SORNA regulations. However, the sum comes with strings attached. That is, ACSOL must collect at least $1,200 from others during the next seven days in order to receive the original $1,200.

“We thank the donor of the challenge grant, who has asked to remain anonymous, that has been provided to ACSOL to fight the federal regulations that will cause great uncertainty in the lives of all registrants,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “The catch is we will only receive the original $1,200 if others contribute the same or a greater amount this week.”

The federal government issued proposed SORNA regulations in 2020 and ACSOL provided a lengthy, in-depth response to those regulations outlining several violations of the U.S. Constitution as well as existing federal law within the regulations. Subsequent conversations with federal government officials suggest that the regulations will be finalized in some form in 2021. ACSOL is leading an effort comprised of legal professionals to file a series of lawsuits throughout the nation when the regulations become final.

Included in the proposed SORNA regulations are requirements that some individuals register four times a year, report leaving their residence for seven days or more even if they remain in the same state and disclose internet identifiers. As currently written, the proposed regulations would apply to registrants in every state regardless of whether the state in which they live is SORNA compliant.

Donations to ACSOL can be made online using the “Donate” button on the front page of the website and by U.S. mail to ACSOL, 1215 K Street, 17th Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814. Donations must be received by May 10 in order to be counted toward this challenge.

Thank you everyone! ACSOL has met its goal of raising $1,200. It is because of YOU that we are able to match the challenge grant in only three days. These donations will be used to continue the fight against the federal government’s proposed SORNA regulations. Future donations can and will be used for the same purpose if you indicate that purpose on your check or PayPal donation.

How so? Seriously, how would that work? How can anyone else know which side you are on, and to what extent? When leaving the meet in Sacramento, some people across the street asked what the meeting was about and what ASOL was. I told them I wasn’t sure. I would never go back to those meeting and so didn’t want to draw heat to the location. Someone else leaving the meeting capped on me about being to afraid to speak up. He didn’t speak up, either of course. So where is the war there? Who is on whose side?

How do we speak seriously knowing everywhere is infiltrated. How to maneuver knowing the man and his agents are everywhere? Submitting child porn as proof for admission would be stupid and miss the point. Maybe submitting proof of registration? Even then, the war could not be illegal if it is going to survive. But tactics could be discussed without being specific.

Back in the mid-2000’s, there was a message board at sexcrimes something or other. This one militant kept saying he would kill registrants if given a chance and he would want to supply the gun if someone was so inclined. He never got specific and never threatened anyone. I thought he could be a concern troll trying to incite. Sure enough, a gunman killed 2 people on the list and looked up 35 more. Maine shutdown its registry for a while. A victory? Around that time, another gunman posed as FBI and killed 2 registrants in Washington State.

Were the gunmen inspired by the troll at the sexcrimes something or other site? That site shutdown right after the killing and I always wondered if the gunmen were inspired there.

So what war? Fire with fire? Trolls v Trolls? Gaslighting vigilantes that Gaslight? This is not the place to discuss it. Maybe the FBI will build a message board where we can talk freely.

Janice any indication from California DOJ if they are going to fight this as well?

Janice is awesome! If it has not been for her. we would have been SQUEEZED. There are many thing she has done. One of them is fighting the living next to playground/school law. I live less than a block from a school. We weren’t even allowed to fish on pier Guess who fought that. Now I have a better job, I m donating much more!!

Maybe our next CHALLENGE GRANT is $100,000?
