wait. whats all this "loaded" talk? am i missing something? i thought incorperation and stuff meant not being able to OC.
The incorporated language is from 12031, which is what makes carrying a loaded
firearm illegal. Carrying a handgun concealed or unconcealed is a completely different subject under the law (PC 12025).
The distinction between unincorporated territory and incorperated territory is for all practical purposes, moot. This is because 12031 makes carrying loaded illegal not only in "incorporated territory" but also in "prohibited areas of unicorporated territory". This includes any public roads, and in most counties, anywhere within 150 yards of any buildings.
