yeah.... open carry is pretty confusing, if its something you want to do, i would recommend at least 2 months of research before your first outing.
it seems that newark has a local ordinance against carrying guns. the good news; if you get arrested/ ticketed for disobeying that ordinance, it wont hold up in court because that law is preempted by state law. the bad news; you will probably be arrested/ ticketed for disobeying that ordinance.
the Incorporated vs unincorporated thing doesnt apply to us too much in the bay. we are Incorporated forpretty much all purposes open carry.im not even too sure what the laws are in regards to that because i figured it would rarely apply to me, and i dont carry if im unsure of the area.
study study study, and again, welcome. hopefully we will have another bay area meet and greet soon. ill start organizing the next. for now, im off to bed.
