I have studied california gun law for about two years, so I know what youre talking about..
I dont know why you are writing in washington to tell us some of the ins and out of your laws.
i take exception to these statements though,,,
(there is no requirement to know the GFSZ's in a strange town or area, and ignorance of these is a safeguard added into the law).
We have a lot of stupid gun laws here, but nearly all are written so poorly that getting around them legally is fairly easy.
theseus got screwed, royally when he tried to plead ignorance of the high school just down the street from the laundry mat he was in..
the requirement in 626.9, to know or reasonably should know, is so crappy, as to be unusable, as proven.
he also got screwed, when his true and correct claim that he was on private property, and exempt from 626.9 was disallowed by the court!
california has a long tradition of changing to meaning of what is and what isnt private property as proven.
im pulling for california to get with the program and hope the latest assault to prohibit open carry, of even unloaded guns fails.
i cant understand how a state can flaunt the 2nd amendment in light of heller and mcdonald.
even wisconsin went shall issue. now only Illinois absolutely refuses to issue a permit, though i know lots of other states
are for all practical people, NO issue, but were getting closer..
