    "You don't need a handgun to order a cheeseburger. You don't need a handgun to order a cup of coffee."
    This is faultless logic. A handgun can't possibly be of any use in ordering cheeseburgers and coffee... Unless you need it just in case the barista screws up your order. "I said 'A Venti, sugar-free, non-fat, vanilla soy, double shot, decaf, Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha', you yellow-bellied whippersnapper! Now, DANCE!"





    In other news, you don't need a brain to pass legislation in California.

    I guess they have a lower class of citizen in California. Those things don't seem to happen in Arizona or Utah.

    LOL..... the liberal progressives are more afraid of the 2nd Amendment, then Stalin, Lenin, Marx, Htiler , and Chairman Mao combined.

    I still think we should wall off California, refuse to let anyone leave, and then give it to Mexico and declare all of them no longer US Citizens.

    Remember, this is the state where some counties were considering not letting their LEO's carry guns either, and is more controlled by illegals and gangs than Mexico is.

    The NRA-ILA has now issued an alert on this bill. They have published the names and phone numbers of the 5 California Senators on the Senate's Public Safety Committee that will next hold hearings on the bill.

    Democrats outnumber Republicans on the Committee by 5 to 2, however. So two Democrats would have to oppose the bill, in order to block it from being sent to the Senate Floor for a vote. I'm rather doubtful that odds are good that could happen.

    If you would like to read this alert, and call any of these State Senators, here is a link to this NRA-ILA Alert:

    Well, they say Mexico is too dangerous to live in, so they all moved to California and are bringing their laws with them.

    California is so broke they can't pay their bills,huge prison overcrowding and State aid to not only legal citisens,but Illegal aliens,the biggest problem is border states are seeing a buncha these idiots relocating and bringing their warped ideas and politics with them.At least in Tx down here by the Border the Sheriffs support people that are legally armed,they actually have their heads on their shoulders and realise they can't protect people,but they can take a report after people protect themselves

    Just in case anyone missed this in the 2A forum. This is the case someone already mentioned. Brilliant!


    U.S. District Court Judge Morrison England Jr. in Sacramento supported a policy by Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto that says applicants must have a reason, such as a safety threat, to legally carry a concealed weapon in his county northwest of Sacramento.

    .......;snip........


    Gura had argued that Prieto's policy gives the sheriff arbitrary discretion over a fundamental constitutional right to bear arms.

    England countered that California law currently lets gun owners carry an unloaded weapon so it can be quickly loaded and used in self-defense if needed.

    That's why I changed my state of residency to TX. Unfortunate that I still have so much family in CA...since I try to visit as little as possible. Me and my family will never live there again.

    Have 9 relatives, in Sacramento. We've been there a couple times in the last 30 years, but probaby will not be back, being as its out of our budget to do so.

    Hopefully they will revolt through the legislature.

They did achieve their goal of raising public awareness but look at the result.
    On a related note, believe it or not, it is possible to get a CCW in the state of California and once granted, there are very few carry restrictions as the general public and most politicians don't have groups of people rubbing their nose in it. You get your permit, shut up about it and hope another CCW holder doesn't do something stupid that will draw media attention. It's not a ideal situation but for now it's what works here.
    Folks need to learn to pick their battles and right now with Governor Moonbeam (AKA Jerry Brown) and the liberals controlling everything it was kind of foolish to push the open carry agenda.

    Oh...and before anybody says it.....Yea I know, protests and standing up for what's right is the American way....just sayin...make sure you have at least a slim chance of success before you go "all in".

    The love and support from fellow gun owners always brings a tear to my eye.

    Exercising a constitutional right makes you nuts now?

    Here is another news report from Bakersfield, CA about this bill passing the California Assembly:

    Bill targets right to openly carry unloaded guns | Bakersfield Now - News, Weather and Sports | Local & Regional News

    During the news story the reporter asks a woman bystander what she thinks of the proposed law. The woman, Lorena Beltran of Bakersfield, replies by saying this:

    "I think the law is a good idea," she said. Beltran further stated that she would not feel safe to see people openly carrying guns, as she would have no way of knowing if they were loaded or not, nor if the people carrying them had a permit to do so.

    I guess that shows how well folks know the law in California.

    I feel no sympathy at all for the people of Kalifornia, they keep reelecting the same losers. Just do me the favor of remaining there.
