    I saw a posting hereabouts where it is claimed the Supreme Court just ruled, in addition the "individual right" issue, that Open Carry is Constitutionally protected. Does this mean California must allow me to openly carry here if I so desire? Obviously, I would not do it in San Francisco, but perhaps out in areas around National Forest lands, where I openly carry when I go camping?
    Any hope the NRA will push this interpretation? Obviously, there is NO hope for Californians, (except Feinstein and Don Peratta) getting concealed carry permits, but perhaps the fools here should be made aware of the Supreme's decision, and realize I could OPENLY carry if I so desired. Am I missing something?

    Heller was a very narrow decision. Unless you live in DC, it's unlikely the decision will affect you.

    But as for what rights are recognized for you right now, see the California forum: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum12/

    Until and unless the court decides to incorporate the second amendment, it's unlikely to really help anyone outside of DC.
