Bans open carry.
I'm a strict Constitutionalist in no way should this ban be allowed to stand as is. The 10th aendment says

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Since the states have given the feds the authority to keep in check any violation of the second amendment and the second Amendment says

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
What part of keep and bear arms do these pricks not understand?


SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- California became the fifth state to prohibit openly carrying handguns in public after Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday that he had signed the ban into law amid heavy opposition from gun enthusiasts.

AB144 by state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-Pasadena, makes it a misdemeanor to carry an exposed and unloaded gun in public or in vehicles, with violators facing up to a year in prison or a potential fine of $1,000 when the law takes effect on Jan 1.

It only bans handguns, not rifles or shotguns.

The erosion of our personel liberties continue to lead us down the road towards socialist/fascist police state.

Most intillectuals agree, once you know your country is fucked there is little you can do to stop it.

"Open Carry" is what the Constitution authorizes. "Concealed Carry" is what needs a permit (and some would argue you don't even need one for that). Gov. Moonbeam, and all who wrote this legislation, are wrong.

California in violation of the second amendment,
Bans open carry.
I'm pretty sure the Constitution says nothing about open carry laws.
What else would you call the right to bear arms??

write stupid backwards on your forhead then go look in the mirror.
I wouldn't call it an open carry law. But please, show me where it says so in the Constitution. Learn how to spell 'forehead', then write that word on your forehead so you can remember that you have one. Moron. :lol::lol::lol:

The II Amendment is a restriction upon the federal government, not the respective states.

We need guns in order to keep the government in check. It is like living out in the woods where there are bears, tigers, lions and other big meat eating animals...We must make sure the beast knows damn sure that we will put the bullet in it if it attacks.

The 14th incorporates all the amendments against the sates.
According to the SCOTUS. I don't agree with the incorporation theory.
But you do agree with rulings the Court made in cases you support RIGHT?
Nowhere in my post did I state or imply that I believe the SCOTUS is always wrong. On the matter of the theory of Incorporation, I disagree with them.

Yes, sometimes I agree with their rulings.

Technically speaking, the CA law as written, does not violate the II Amendment. Only through the SCOTUS' Incorporation Theory, is it perceived as being a violation.

Stop living in the past.
The constitution was written 250 years ago by a bunch of hicks that were barely out of the Dark Ages and still believed the earth was flat (it isn't you know)!

If you're going to babble about constitutionality, at least have the decency to understand constitutional law. The second amendment does not prohibit government from enacting certain regulatory measures regarding weapons. Thus, many states have laws about concealed handguns. The federal government has passed laws about assault weapons. Certain regulations are permissible under the constitution where a legitimate government interest is being met, and where those regulations are sufficiently narrow.

All the CA law seems to do is prohibit a handgun from being displayed when not loaded. My recommendation would be that if you want to open carry, have your handgun loaded. That would be advisable anyway, as an unloaded gun is more dangerous than a loaded gun. Also, you could get a CCW permit. There's nothing here that I can see as unconstitutional.
