Sam Paredes of Gun Owners of California must be having another raffle because he has no intention of bringing a lawsuit to restore Open Carry to California.
In fact, his organization filed an Amicus Brief in support of upholding California's Loaded Open Carry ban and in support of upholding California's Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1995. There is only one lawsuit seeking to restore Loaded Open Carry to California and I'm the one who filed it and I am the one who has been waging the legal battle for two and a half years without the help of Sam Paredes and without the help of any of the so called gun-rights groups.
Charles Nichols – President of California Right To Carry
"[A] right to carry arms openly: "This is the right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and which is calculated to incite men to a manly and noble defence of themselves, if necessary, and of their country, without any tendency to secret advantages and unmanly assassinations."" District of Columbia v. Heller, 128 S. Ct. 2783 - Supreme Court (2008) at 2809.
"Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose. For example, the majority of the 19th-century courts to consider the question held that prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons were lawful under the Second Amendment or state analogues." District of Columbia v. Heller, 128 S. Ct. 2783 - Supreme Court (2008) at 2816.
