    NOT

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown announced Friday that he had extended a ban on the open display of handguns in most California cities and towns to include rifles and shotguns.
    Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-La Canada-Flintridge, said he wrote AB1527 after gun rights advocates began carrying unloaded long guns to protest a law from last year that prohibited the display of handguns.
    The measure will make it a misdemeanor to display an unloaded firearm in a public place. It includes dozens of exemptions for hunters, members of the military, rural Californians, and those bringing their guns to shooting ranges or gunsmiths.

    Typical freaking commiecrat, afraid of everything. When is he going to learn they call law abiding gun owners "law abiding" for a reason.

    Just exactly how does Gov Brown expect people to "conceal carry" rifles and shotguns?

    Conceal carry is the county Sheriff's call. Only a few middle-of-nowhere counties in CA will issue a conceal carry permit. Gov Brown expects anyone transporting a long gun to do so in locked case. More ridiculous restrictions on the 2nd amendment that do make a damn bit of difference to the criminals.
