    Yup! You guys from SoCal, do you think an Open Carry get together would be a nice way to start the year?

    It would be nice to hear from those who have previous experience. I am sure a number of OCers are also interested in joining one.

    Anyone?

    I don't believe we have enough support to arrange a SoCal meet up.

    I would be more than willing to attend! Even tried once or twice to get something up.

    There have been a couple of Open Carry lunch get togethers down in San Diego. They were put together by one of the CalGuns.net guys.

    I think they have one coming up end of this month sometime.

    Thanks for the info. I went to CG website and some of the guys are asking we hold lunches until after Nordyke (Jan 15th). I guess it is to avoid any undue influence from a media once somebody gets "busted" by an LEO for UOC.

    There will be no arrests at the San Diego Lunch. The first one was coordinated with the San Diego PD and they had a few plain clothes dectectives watching and had a few squad cars roaming the block. There were a few "citizens" who got a little upset but nothing happened. For thesecond one, we invited the head detective, but he couldn't make it due to other commitments. He wants us to try to have this open carry lunch on a regular basis.

    Since the SDPD is fully aware of the legality, and have pretty much sanctioned the lunches, I think they are a good thing.

    Gene is the one who asked people not to Open Carry until after Nordyke. But he has clarified that to mean not open carrying by your self in controversial areas that might bring "bad attention".

    I personally am not changing my carry habits, as where I live (rural Kern County) it is not a problem.

    I'm available (nearly) every Sunday for an open carry meet. If you decide to organize one please post the date and time here so all socal carriers can meet up. I'm still working on getting my gun back, but will attend an open carry meeting anyway. After reviewing the California knife laws, it appears the open carry of a regular sheathed sword, is legal (i.e. katana, broadsword, etc... ). Granted this will probably not be the best idea, has anyone else looked this up before?

    Anyone an acquaintance of / friends with / LAPD officers or leaders to help orchestrate such an LA event along with the local sheriff and PD? We're all lawful citizens here, and it would be nice to inform both the general public as well as the local police before, during and after the lunch to ensure the event's safety and effectiveness.

    Knife laws, unlike gun laws arent subject to state preemption, so watch out for local ordinances.

    I believe Los Angeles County has a prohibition on open carry of knives over a certain length. IIRC it doesn't cover pocket knives carried concealed, so the 18" folder concealedshould be legal.


    Los Angeles County Code

    13.62.020 Carrying knives and daggers in plain view prohibited.

    Knife or dagger is defined as any knife having a blade of three inches or more in length; any spring-blade, switch-blade or snap-blade knife; any knife any blade of which is automatically released by a spring mechanism or other mechanical device; any ice pick or similar sharp stabbing tool; any straight-edge razor or any razor blade fitted to a handle.

    Alhambra gathering being planned here

    This is going to be a fundraising dinner for some CalGuns members including myself. There is some talk of turning it into an OC dinner as well.

    All are invited, but if you do wish to come, please post on CalGuns so we can keep track.

    On the Calguns.net forum there is an OC meeting being spearheaded by gir007 and helped by elsensei (my brother) and myself and we are looking to get that one cool detective from the first OC lunch and possibly a small film crew. Both calguns.net and opencarry.org will be notified of this one for sure.

    In Sight shoot range is in the city of Artesia, not Cerritos. Watch out for the Arta and Chivas gangsters (Artesia gangs)as you go inside. It would be a tradgedy if they opened fire on an OC'er, exercising their rights,who couldn't load fast enough. Use you brain and just be very careful.

    Going crosseyed, I missed the original post that you were referring to.

    It is considered good form to quote the post so that others don't have to search for a reference.

    Sorry about that, but if I quote it everytime, it eats up bandwidth.

    I would love to OC here in LA, and I would love to have a meet-up/get together here in LA as well. I'm just too damn nervous to open carry in this city, and I don't think I'm prepared yet. And I mean about dealing with the Police, not with my handling of a firearm.

    You deal with the police like you would a child. You act like they have no real power and feed them slowly so they don't make a mess...


    And I am joking btw. . . For those LEO bashing accusers...

    Dealing with the police is understandably uncomfortable in most situations. I have had a lifetime of practice undermining peoples authority and am quite comfortable with it almost as if it comes naturally. That and the few years as the debate team captain didn't hurt either.

    But seriously, don't give them an inch. Don't offer any information you are not required to and be firm in the knowledge of what they CAN and CAN NOT do and what you CAN and CAN NOT do.

    I tried planning one or two of these gatherings and might do so as a celebration of completion of the trial. It is likely to end soon and I am strong that I will be cleared of any wrong.
