    One Final Push to Defeat Portantino's Open Carry Ban AB144

    OpenCarry.org been running radio ads in California throughout the year in an attempt to defeat Assemblyman Portantino's open carry ban bill AB 144 which is scheduled to be heard on the Senate floor after August 15th.

    We want to put together one final radio campaign to encourage California citizens to contact their Senators so that we can defeat this bill and we need your help.

    Please click here to contribute if you can. Even $1 will help if enough people contribute.

    Thanks!

    It's California. Let it go. OC's record will be -1-5 this year, lol.

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    I was motivated to give by the absolute stupidity shown and inane comments made by Portantino.

    People under various circumstances can make "stupid and inane" comments, but after hearing Mr. Portantino, I actually got the impression that he is himself a bit "simple". I can only wonder how the people could vote for someone who, despite good intentions, is likely unable to think past the most concrete elements of an argument. A sad situation, really, but made much worse by the fact that he actually has power over the lives of others.

    Anti-Open Carry Law

    This new anti-open carry law is just another ploy by do-gooder politicians to infringe upon the people's rights under the guise of "protection" and "safety." As a mountain hiker who frequently crosses the Nevada/California border I carry a pistol at all times. Bears, mountain lions and rabid coyotes are a hazard to all hikers. Mountain lions and other dangerous wildlife do not respect state boundaries or state laws. The anti-open carry law will merely put more outdoor people in danger.

    It's the people's fault. They elected him. Sort of like Obama. Too many voters can't find their way out of a paper bag.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Sent $5 bucks. I wish I could send more but times are hard for a College student with 2 kids! I hope this bill fails, I find it disgraceful what the California legislature does to their citizens Constitutional rights!

    Woops, I just realized this is over a year old! I thought it was the OC ban on Long gun carry! Oh well, I guess you can find another reason to use the money for a good cause!
