    Hey, you can vote more than once. I don't know if I should join ACORN or become a Chicago democrat.

    Hey Mike,
    In my read of your question-- if your results of your poll were made the law then "CALIFORINIANS COULD CARRY AN UNLOADED GUN NEAR ANY SCHOOL IN ANY STATE!

    Everyone but UTAH would benefit here....

    Just what do you have against UTAH where with a CFP anyone can open/concealed and/or loaded/unloaded carry IN/NEAR ANY UTAH PUBLIC SCHOOL/COLLEGE?

    Just ribbing you... keep up the good work!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    Was tempted to say no as I think everyone should be armed (ammo in the gun) and carry where and when they please. I voted yes as I know CA is an OC unloaded only state.

    Not in the whole state - only public placesin incorporated areas, and, public laces in unincorporated aras where the county has banned shooting - that's probably less than 505 of the land mass of Calif. - the tricky part is figuring out where you are and what local shooting bans might exist!

    Anywhere the Black Panthers ever marched, as that was the whole reason CA went to an unloaded carry state was because Black Panthers would carry loaded shotguns at their rallies.

    Ah, that's right. I had forgotten that. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Oh yes, the Black Panther Party. An obscure California law allowed them at the time to carry loaded weapons as long as they were visible and pointed at no person. Obviously, not all black people did or do agree with all of the BPP's views but they must be commended for exercising their rights under California state and Federal law. Some of them were unsavory characters which led to violence and their eventual downfall but their original ideology of encouraging members to arm themselves against violence was certainly good, and many did this.
