    Open Carry in my front yard!

    After potentially chasing down someone from my house who was attempting to break in I called the police. When they finally arrived some ....20 minutes later I was open carrying my 1911 with holsters on the other side. They told me right off the bat that I had to go secure my weapons because my ammo was within arms reach and was presumed loaded?? Really?? Maybe someone can shed some insight?

    No, not really. They either don't know the applicable definition of loaded (12031(g)) or didnt think you would know and were attempting to discourage your state of being armed.

    Were it me... I think I'd have told them that my firearm is secure in my holster (just like theirs are) and that if they would like to arrest me for a 'loaded' weapon while UOC they are certainly welcome to.

    yep

    And I told them (respectfully) that it was secure according to california law then he shook his head and said no "blablabla". At that point I just said "oh ok sir, roger that". I'm guessing that he thought that I didn't know the laws and pictured me as an idiot. ACTUALLY!! these guys spent more time asking questions about my weapons than about the actual crime that had happened. (were my weapons registered?, are they registered on base?, etc etc)

    I hope you didnt answer any of those questions...
