Lightbulb Reminder: No Guns while Masked for Halloween

Everyone probably already knows this, but just in case (from PC 12040):

"A person commits criminal possession of a firearm when
he or she carries a firearm in a public place or on any public street
while masked so as to hide his or her identity."

So does this mean I can't dress up as a bank robber with a tommy gun?

Wow, I'll be 100% honest and say I did not know about that law. I mean obviously common sense is, I don't think I'm gonna dress up in costume and carry a gun around, but still. I've read a good deal of the 12xxx codes but I guess that one gave me the slip somewhere.

Thanks for the info--not that I planned on carrying a gun this Halloween, since I do not have a CCW.

I'ved carried a gun since it was an essential part of the costume; no one really cared; but I was not wearng a mask, which is what the issue here is.

Guys, in all fairness, I do not believe this applies to toy guns as part of a costume. It clearly says "firearm."

I believe the main thing to take into consideration here is for CCWers or UOCers. Otherwise legal carry of a firearm can and will be considered criminal possession in the event that you are masked. That's pretty much the gist of it.

It does mean real firearms. Think "bandit", "bank robber", or "vigilante", for that matter, given when the law was enacted.

Usually there are bigger fish to fry, so to speak, if a suspect has a firearm and a mask. I can't remember ever seeing this charged. Not that someone with a hardon for CCWs couldn't make it an issue. Better just not to mix firearms and masks...

It's call Plausible Deniability. Or law maker covering their own *****. Or bury your head in the sand. Whatever you like to call it.

There are tons of law that are not enforced.

Do you have an idea how many laws would be abolished if they only established enforceable laws.

Because selective enforcement is an extremely powerful tool of oppression. It creates administrative privileges.

From what another poster said, that doesn't seem to be the case here, but it happens often enough with other laws.

The other side is that it creates space for a technical infraction to be overlooked because it would be unjust or unreasonable to press the issue. This also happens, all the time. The basic effect is that the ability to selectively enforce increases the power of those who enforce. How that power is used depends on the character of the enforcer.

Indeed. It does not seem to be a burning issue for the law-abiding in practice.

But...theoretical question for those who like such things. If we have a Right to Bear incorporated against the states, and build the case law that gives it force, will someone someday be able to claim successfully that this infringes their Right to Bear while costumed, or while dressed for extreme winter conditions?

There are other situations where this could come up besides parties. Think of someone hired to wear a company's mascot suit for advertising in a questionable area. Do they give up their civil rights when they accept the job? Or someone disfigured in an accident who chooses to partly or mostly cover their face. Do they no longer have a right to bear arms for their own protection?

Aren't edge cases fun?

LAPD Officer's Gunfire Kills Actor at Party
Shooting: Halloween reveler at mansion pointed what turned out to be a fake pistol at patrolman, who feared for his life, police say.


By RICHARD WINTON, SUE FOX, Times Staff Writers


A Los Angeles police officer responding to a loud Halloween costume party at a Benedict Canyon mansion early Saturday morning shot and killed an actor, who authorities said pointed what turned out to be a fake handgun at him.
Anthony Dwain Lee, 39, of Van Nuys, who appeared in the movie "Liar, Liar" and on such television shows as "ER" and "NYPD Blue," was shot at multiple times by Officer Tarriel Hopper, who fired from outside through a window, authorities said.
Scores of costumed party-goers, many of them actors and other entertainment industry professionals, were inside the mansion--known to some as "the Castle" for its extravagant design, spires and stained-glass windows--when the shooting occurred about 1 a.m.
"He was a Buddhist. He hated violence. It is amazing he died this way," said Mitch Hale, a writer friend whose play "Buffalo Soldier" starred Lee and earned him a local acting award. "He was an incredibly gifted actor and person. It's devastating. . . . Why did they shoot someone at a Halloween party?"
Police said Hopper and Officer Natalie Humphreys were attempting to locate the owner of the home in the 9700 block of Yoakum Drive after neighbors complained about the noise. The officers were walking along an exterior walkway at the rear of the house when Hopper looked into a small room that appeared to contain three people, police said.
"When one of the individuals observed the officers, he suddenly produced what appeared to be a handgun and pointed it directly at Officer Hopper," Officer Charlotte Broughton said. "Officer Hopper, in fear for his life, fired several rounds from his service pistol, wounding the suspect."
It was not clear whether the victim knew that Hopper was a real police officer. One guest said some party-goers were dressed as police officers.
Upon examination, Broughton said, the alleged weapon was determined to be "a replica semiautomatic pistol, dark in color."
Lee, who was identified by the county coroner's office, died at the scene.
"This is a tragedy," said Broughton. "It's a very unfortunate incident.'
The shooting is being investigated by the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division and a team from the district attorney's office. Hopper, 27, has been with the department three years, while Humphreys, 25, joined the force two years ago, police said.
Erik Quisling, 29, a party-goer, said a friend of his, who is a nurse, tried to revive Lee. "He was wedged up against the bed on his side," Quisling added.
Quisling said he was standing in the doorway of the bedroom where Lee was shot. He said he did not witness the moments before the shooting or the shooting itself. He also said he did not hear police officers give a warning, although there was music blaring at the time.
"I heard this 'pop pop,' saw the holes in the glass, smelled the smoke, and then there was this guy on the floor totally dead," he said. "The cop shot from outside through a window to inside the house and kills this guy four feet from me. One minute he was talking; the next minute he was dead."
Quisling said the small room looked out onto a dimly lit grotto with a small pool. The officers, he said, were standing in a paved area by the pool.
At the time of the shooting, Quisling said, many people had left by shuttle because the party was moving to an artist's studio. The mansion is on a narrow canyon road, home to an eclectic array of houses.
Another party-goer, Robert Hull, 28, who works in movie production, said he did not see the shooting because he was in an adjacent hallway. "It was a shock that an officer would shoot at such a party," he said.
"This was an exclusive party with security," he said. "Some of these people are making six figures, and this officer saw a toy gun at a Halloween costume party and opened fire."

Victim Turned Life Around, Friend Says
Hale, 44, who had known the victim for 15 years, said Lee usually wore a devil mask costume with a hood and carried a replica gun to Halloween parties. Hale was not at the party.
Authorities did not say whether the victim was in costume at the time of the shooting.
Lee's costume and gun, Hale said, were "a symbol of the past he had left behind him." As a youth in Northern California, Lee had followed the gangster life before becoming a stage actor, first in Ashland, Ore., then Seattle and eventually Los Angeles, Hale said.
"He was dressed as a devil, not a gangster," he said. "How could this happen?"
Hale said his friend was committed to peace and had even persuaded him to become a Buddhist.
Kirsten Blackburn, Hale's wife, said the Lee she knew would never point a gun at anyone. She said his friends are planning a candlelight vigil in front of the LAPD's West Los Angeles station.
"We are going to try for Monday night. We're going to invite everyone who knew and loved Anthony," she said. "We're devastated, and we're not alone by any means."
Lee's former girlfriend, Annie Esty, 40, who lived across the hall from him, described the actor as a compassionate, reflective person whose apartment was filled with books on acting and directing.
As she talked, she leafed through old pictures and newspaper clippings of him and was comforted by another friend, Mary Lin.
"His biggest fear was getting killed by cops, because he's a tall black man. He said that before," recalled Lin, of Burbank.
The light was still on at Lee's apartment late Saturday. Lin said that when she walked into the apartment complex and "saw the light coming out, I just felt his presence. It was everywhere, a positive feeling, like him saying, 'I'm still here.' "

Years ago a buddy and I went as cowboys for Halloween. We kept things as authentic as possible. We both had unloaded six shooters holstered in plain view. We had cartridges in the gun belt, but not in the same caliber as the guns that we were carrying. We had bandannas tied loosely around our necks but not over our faces. I guess I have UOC before.....we had several people comment on how realistic our guns looked too. I recall refusing a few requests to see the guns. I think most of the people thought they were prop guns. I'm not worried about the legality of this as it was long enough ago that I'd be well out any statue of limitations. I just wonder if we actually broke any laws that night....I don't think so but then some of you here are much better versed in the subject than me.

Could well have violated the Gun Free School Zone. Even if you were at a private residence the walk to and from your car on the street may have been in a school zone.

Naw, just not the party type I guess. Plus, it takes people a bit to adjust once they meet me.

You know what is sad? The last party I got invited to was a 16yr old girls birthday party. Apparently she thought I was cool and demanded that I go, so I did. (We know each other through church and all that)

So yeah...

You know what is sad? The last party I got invited to was a 16yr old girls birthday party. Apparently she thought I was cool and demanded that I go, so I did. (We know each other through church and all that)

So yeah...
Um if we had thrown a party we would have invited ya. And it didn't take me long to adjust after meeting you. Then again look at who I live with ( you know if he reads this post I am so in trouble ::.)

It's most likely an additional lesser offense, sort of like how brandishing is infrequently prosecuted by itself.

ie. Commit a bank robbery while masked and with a gun, you have the main charge of armed bank robbery, and then the DA throws other related charges like possession of a loaded weapon, possession of loaded weapon while masked, brandishing, kidnapping, etc. Basically throw a bunch of stuff and see what sticks.

It's that time of the year again, and this other thread prompted me to bump this old thread of mine regarding carrying guns and wearing masks all at the same time. Have fun at the Halloween parties but leave one or the other at home while you're out in public.

(4) sounds like a pretty good defense to me for Halloween parties, etc.

Also, number 3 is interesting. How many times have officers actually invoked the aid of a non-sworn person to help them who happened to have a mask and a gun handy? haha.

You mean you don't get called in to help the boys in blue? Happens to me at least twice a week.

This PC section has an interesting intersection with three other issues:

-- pandemic preparedness and the need to wear N95 or other medical / surgical masks
-- post-disaster dust in the air, as from a volcanic eruption
-- the use of respirator masks to safely enter a building with severe mold

After Mt. Saint Helens, some banks had to put up signs saying, "Please take off mask before entering bank. Thank you!"

A counter to the "... so as to hide his or her identity ..." requirement might be to wear one's own name openly, as on a name tag or clothing tag. Seems like a good thing for someone else to test in case law.

"... so as to hide his or her identity ..." is arguable.

No makeup for lots of women then. We all know someone that is only reconizable with makeup on.
