    Not bad, except for the ex-hippie chick and bed wetter from the Brady bunch.

    The Brady bunch have no valid reasons to ban guns, so now they are using the lame one about being intimidatedat the sight of a gun, and someone insane might get a gun. As long as one of them doesn't have a gun, the insanity problem is void.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    The really nice thing about this piece is how the anti arguments fall so flatly on their faces.

    The only problem with this story is that like the KTVU story, it states that UOC is legal but does not mention school zones. The KTVU story led to the 74 yo man being arrested for 626.9. This could have similar results. Comments should be posted mentioning school zones and, of course, this site.

    That is a shame. Although any one ignorant enough to take a newsarticle as their source for legal advice obviously has gotten luckyskating through life and not in prison by now.

    Funny. I never thought I would agree with a comment made by a Brady campaign advocate.

    Yes. I carry a firearm openly to intimidate people- Specifically, people with criminal intent. If there is a peripheral effect that others are on their best behavior while openly armed people are around, then I am all for it.

    I agree that the media should make mention that their are restrictions... ridiculous ones at that, that prevent carry in certain areas,... but by virtue that we are talking about firearms in California, common sense would dictate that you investigate before acting.

    The coverage though, has completely defied pro-gunners expectations... It has been balanced in most cases, and largely has been positive. We have been blessed, fortunately, with coverage that has not included any misteps by advocates. I keep crossing my fingers.

    Actually, that individual, after viewing the KTVU story, asked 2 cops, and they told him it was legal, but nobody ever mentioned school zones along the way.

    I just posted a school zone warning in the youtube comments.

    I find that I can intimidate people the most when I am holding the door open for somebody. Or when I am tipping the cashier for friendly service, that really intimidates people. I wish I could tell how well my intimidation was working when I am sitting around, talking to people, and ignoring everybody else...but I'm ignoring them so....

    The Brady Campaign is like a Wikipedia without citations. Hand waving and scare mongering doesn't convince anybody with half a brain.

    If you listen to the news clip of the San Mateo Assistant District Attorney, it would leave the uninformed to believe that you can carry a holstered gun period. It also does not mention that it has to be unloaded or not within a school zone.

    Though this news piece was exceptionally well balanced in presentation, which is unusual, it also could lead to more OC GFSZ incidents.

    At my trial, I will use this clip to show that the DA said it was OK to carry my .50 cal next to my local elementary school......can I go home now Judge???

    Hi All,

    I was in attendance at the meetup in the video. I thought that the public interactions that took place were generally cordial and at times jovial. Many fliers passed out.

    I too am concerned that the GFSZ was not mentioned in the video. In future media involvement I will make it a point to ask that they try to prominently include this fact.

    Carry On,

    Livermoron
