    open carry at work?

    I have a secondary job in probably the worst part of town, on the worst street. Wouldn't do it for money, I'm working a retail store for my ma-in-law. I illegally carry concealed, i won't lie. It's about the only thing that gets me through my day, knowing I can protect myself. What terrifies me is having to brandish or use force, as I believe that there is a real chance in CA that I'll get a felony. So, can i, within the confines of my store, wear it on my hip? I believe this would be an effective deterrent. I'm at the point where I'll go get my guard card, if it will allow me to legally carry my handgun.

    Should probably ask the folks in the CA part of the forum. Would be more inclined to kniow, I think.
    Here,in Florida-if it's your pace of biz, you can carry.

    Posted in wrong state sub-forum - you need to direct this question to the members in the CA sub-forum to get state specific answers.

    It's also not wise to admit to a felony on a public forum. (You may not be as anonymous as you think.) OCDO doesn't not support breaking the law, even when the law seems wrong.

    I didn't quote your post so you can easily remove the incriminating part. Take care.
