Just a heads up.
Our experience at Calguns has been that open carry is extremely polarizing.
Perfectly fine to discuss it. No thread on the topic has yet stayed at discussion; perhaps this will be the first.
Once again, we're in CA Bill Season.
There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.
Let us simply oppose them all - write, call, attend meetings with legislators and tell them they're wrong.
The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.
Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
