"This weekend the organizers of the Facebook group "open carry movement" sent a message to its members captioned "open carry nation." The group is shooting to fire up a nation-wide cyber-roots push for legislative progress to "repeal the last 7 state bans on openly carrying properly holstered firearms," . . .


In California 2 bills have been introduced to BAN open carry: AB 144 directly bans open carry in many or most public places, while SB 661 indirectly bans open carry by way of expanding school zone gun bans to 1,500 feet! If you live in California, sign the petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/CalOCPet/petition.html and click the privacy setting to let the petition founder see your email address. Then, find YOUR state Rep. & Sen. at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html and make sure they know that that you, your spouse, friends, and associates oppose BOTH bills and are counting on them to oppose them.

The online petition is particularly politically useless.

Calling legislators, tying up their phone line & aide time, and being 'polite but painful' is very useful esp if kept up at the right time.
