So what does this do for open carry in California ?

As of right now it is legal but the state legislature is poised to ban it.

I dont see anyway that a ban would pass legal muster now with the McDonald ruling.

However, some people have said that if California starts issueing CCW's that an open carry ban might be legal. I dont think so because most states that have CCW's also allow open carry with no permit needed.

On the issue of school zones, does anyone have an opinion on how the McDonald ruling will effect the 1000ft law in California ? Since other states dont have it then I would think the McDonald ruling means Ca residents shouldnt be burdened by the infringment as well.
