The California Assembly has done more damage to that State than all of the American gun owners who have ever lived since 1776.

I hope they were careful about the wording (& knowing Calif I doubt it was) , as they could write it in such a manner that having an unloaded gun period (e.g. in trunk , vehicle, or carrying one to your car to go to the range) , could be determined illegal. Then there would be another case going to the Supreme Court.
Personally, it would tick me off sooooooooo much, I would be strapping on toy guns and watching them waste all their time on a "man with a gun " call, and would be encouraging everyone to do it in protest.

Just to further demonstrate the idiocy of CA, how crazy is it that they could only OC an UNLOADED gun to begin with? Now they're trying to outlaw that? That's like saying you can own a car, but it can't have any gas in it. What's the point.

When this becomes law, I will be interested to see how it affects the appeal of Peruta et al v. County of San Diego. Part of the reason the judge found the discriminatory may-issue practice OK was the legal alternative of unloaded open carry (UOC); see page 8 of http://ia600406.us.archive.org/23/it...08678.64.0.pdf . By prohibiting UOC, the only alternative is removed.
Of course we all know that UOC is not a practical method of self defense.
All these "wonderful anti-gun laws" and yet L.A. County still has one of the highest crime rates in the country.
I guess if we really wanted to get down to it, wearing pants isn't really necessary for buying a cheeseburger either.

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
