If the choice is the gun, then you must support the right to carry a loaded firearm in public, because the gun won't magically appear in her hands -- she has to have it on her, and the time constraints are such that it has to be loaded and ready to use.

The cellphone is just a way she can inform someone else that she'll be dead by the time they get to her.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum - most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.

Heller was 2008. McDonald was 2010. Things started getting bad with GCA-1968.
It takes time to unwind 40 years of bad law.
