I hate what some "states/communisms" in this country is coming to.
All if the government officials don't want "open carry" legal in California because of their views on guns. I'm sure they've not taken the opinions of citizens, and if they have they've obviously only listened to the opinions of those oppose to guns.
They think that banning open carry is going to help with the "crime rate" but in all reality, how many robbers and criminals walk around toting a firearm on their hip?? Very few. They don't want attention drawn to them so the firearm they use is going to concealed on themselves so no one knows they have it.
Reading this makes me thankful for living in Kentucky, and the gun laws in this state. If you are 18 or older and are not a felon then you are free to open carry anywhere in the state except k-12 schools, or into federal buildings banned by federal law. And the exception of no LOADED firearms in bars.
