If California can't ban open carry, it speaks well of us to the rest of the country.

All opinions posted on opencarry.org are my own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of opencarry.org or Michigan Open Carry Inc.
In my opinion, open carry, and in fact nearly all carry was banned in the PRK by their racist lawmakers in the 60's after the black panthers rose to the challenge of taking on violent felons who were employed as police officers in their neighborhoods. If you can't carry loaded and ready, you can't really carry.
UOC as they call it, and as I call it "unconstitutional open carry" is a demoralizing joke for supporters of the constitution. It's making ones self vulnerable to the very dangerous and extremely bold criminals of cities in kalifornia. Criminals there start off knowing you probably can't likely defend yourself, and you prove it to them by carrying legally and unloaded. I would describe it as little short of brain dead. I would honestly feel safer there unarmed, walking around Detroit style, that is with my hands in my pockets to create the curiosity that I might be armed, and a look on my face like I wanted to fight someone. Not looking like a victim goes a lot further than proving you'd be a good one.
Had this law been passed, it would have served as a springboard for tremendous lawsuits to be brought upon the state, probably reinstating loaded carry as a right in the state. With the state still being able to pretend that carry is legal, it will be harder now, but still possible to bring the constitution back through the courts. I believe it is an extremely disappointing setback.
The most important lesson I have learned from my time in the freedom movement and further studying it is that trying to create an organization without preventing the issues caused by narcissistic sociopaths and democracy is a lot like heading to sea in a sieve. It'll never work.
The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
Better get three coffins ready for this bad legislation....
Ooops forgot, better make it four an extra one needed for these hacks political careers!

Exo 22:2 "If anyone catches a thief breaking in and hits him so that he dies, he is not guilty of murder.
Luke 22:36: "Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Luk 11:21 "When a strong man, with all his weapons ready, guards his own house, all his belongings are safe.
Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.
"Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine
