    There is no such thing as a good e-VIOLATION. It is not a badge of honor, its a scar of tyranny!

    Having said that, glad your 4A rights were not trampled upon, only merely stepped on.

    We went down to the pier to have dinner at ruby's after dinner we strolled up main street at the first intersection there were about 5 maybe 6 leo's huddled up across the street they saw us and our guns, as we continued up Main street my wife saw them coming so we decided to wait for then, there was a fountian there so we sat down and waited it did not take long, they approched my friend Eddie first and asked him if we were expecting trouble or just excercising our rights, asked to check his gun which he did, asked us if we had ammo and were it was which was obvious as we both had mags on our belts his partner then checked my gun handed it back to me and said goodnight they were gone before I had my gun secured in my holster and thats about it. I was blown away!

    I don't live in CA anymore so I am not well versed in the laws but, per CA penal code, don't the cops have the authority to "e-check" you to verify the unloaded status of your weapon?

    Sounds like they didn't detain you after the check was completed. Isn't that how you would want a LEO stop to go?

    I'm not being sarcastic, I really want opinions.

    I know that not being detained at all because you aren't breaking any law is ideal, but working within the confines of the present system in CA that sounded pretty good.

    I would most definetly agree but until someone challenges that BS "e-check" law then I think that stop went about as well as can be expected, don't you?

    Had a very similar experience in the same area last year with a group of 5 or so OCers. I appreciate that their E-checks didn't involve handcuffs and lousy attitudes.

    If unconstitutional laws equals authority, then yes. However, its important to remember that they are not required to perform an e-violation. Additionally, given that under McDonald the 2A is a fundamental right, I would argue that disarming a law abiding individual, even momentarily, without reasonable, articulable suspicion that a crime is afoot, is a violation of one's 2A rights in addition to the 4A violation.

    I agree, I'm wondering when a smart lawyer who is pro-2A will sue the state on just that 2A & 4A.

    I agree 100% It's incredible what we now have legal precedent to restore now that McDonald was decided. I think it's only a matter of time
