BB...I totally agree with you on all points above. Those who have never lived there will never understand just how stupid those people are.It only died because they ran out of time! Don't hold your breath as I'm sure it will come up next Legislative Session. These Cal Idiots just don't get it. Glad I left may years ago, NEVER to return.
Maybe it is just me, but does anyone else see the Caliphony law allowing the Open Carry of UNLOADED guns as a bit off the mark? Can anything be more idiotic? Scenario: You and your friends are having coffee at ye olde Starbuck's, and you are wearing your WhizBang .44 Automag, unlaoded, as per state law. Suddenly, into the coffee shop steps an individual whose bread ain't quite riz, as we used to say back in Indiana, He has come to the coffee shop to shoot as many people as he can, before taking his own life. He whips out two semi-autos with 33 round mags (illegal in Caliphony, but he IS a criminal, after all). The active shooter spots the gun on your hip. Question: Who does this mental midget shoot first? Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding. We have a winner if you said the shnook with the unloaded gun. Any wonder I carry concealed?
That California law LIMITS OC to being unloaded is idiotic and an infringement of the Constitution. That California is a SHALL issue state is also idiotic. So the only way most people can carry a firearm for protection is OC, which is better than nothing even if you have to put a mag in.
That another CCer thinks that BGs have some sort of radar for OCers is also not the most enlightened thing to say, especially if the OCer happens to be sitting down. That you turned a valid argument that California forces OCers to carry unloaded being wrong, into yet another CCer promoting how CC is better is just as wrong and it doesn't hold as much validity as you'd like to think.
At least they are exercising a right and educating the public, what are you doing to further the cause? Because knocking your fellow 2A enthusiast isn't doing a damn thing.
That division has to end people.
