This just about says everything regarding why I support loaded OC over CC:
I do however support 'constitutional carry' because how you carry should be a personal choice not a legislated command.
But concealed carry will ease Ca. more gently toward acceptance of peaceably armed citizens then OC at this time in Ca's history. Barring court protection, OC may see a revival in Ca in my children's lifetime. I don't expect to see it again sadly.
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.
