    Hi All,

    In Susanville, Ca. the national guard and color guard, go through a school zone

    every year, as the school is within 100 yards of the Veterans building, right across

    the street. So I'm guessing its legal on that one day a year.

    However I don't want to be the test case either.

    But I do see some Irony in this situation. What are your thoughts ?

    At anyrate I'm going to be passing out flyers on OCing, to my fellow Veterans !

    See ya later ! Robin47

    My mistake, The school a highschool is only 100 feet across the road from the Veterans building.

    I think there might be a special permit for the parade, and that it MIGHT be legal to opencarry fire arms unloaded (UOC).

    Anyway going to pass out some pamphlet on OCing. Robin47

    Yeah I didn't see that either, just got back from It and the parade turned right into the parking lot of the high school, and even the Forest Service color gaurds were armed with rifles. And the National Guard with there moble armored vehicle, with a 50 cal gun on it.

    I don't know if the rifles were props or real as I should have gotten closer to see however Im sure the 50 cal on the vehicle was real. Maybe they are exempt !

    I did take some pictures of the parade, but not sure how to download it on to the computer, or the stuff to do it with yet.

    Passed out some flyers and some were real Interested in OCing. Thats the good news.

    What? The Government won't enforce the law? What a shock and a travesty! I bet if you were UPC you would have gotten trouble. . . Try it next time. I will be there in your case yelling at the DA.

    Pistols or Rifles carried in parades get a pass in school zones. It's just the way it is; actual common sense (and ignorance of the law by cops)prevailing. Nobody sees a color guard or reenactment group and thinks 626.9. In my towns X-mas parade there is a "Mexican"style westernhorse riding group with real 6-shooters and they pass through three school zones. There is NO way I'm gona hookem up and and ask my sgt to approve the report on parade day. :P



    and Forest Service and NG (I'd Say) fall under L

    (l) This section does not apply to a duly appointed peace officer
    as defined in Chapter 4.5 (commencing with Section 830) of Title 3 of
    Part 2, a full-time paid peace officer of another state or the
    federal government
    who is carrying out official duties while in
    California, any person summoned by any of these officers to assist in
    making arrests or preserving the peace while he or she is actually
    engaged in assisting the officer, a member of the military forces of
    this state or of the United States who is engaged in the performance
    of his or her duties,
    a person holding a valid license to carry the
    firearm pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 12050) of
    Chapter 1 of Title 2 of Part 4, or an armored vehicle guard, engaged
    in the performance of his or her duties, as defined in subdivision
    (e) of Section 7521 of the Business and Professions Code.
    or maybe they hold valid 12050 LTCs and OC rifles
