The California legislature seems to be intent on solving this non-problem in regards to the fact that . There have already been at least two cases in the courts that have dismissed suits against California’s carry provisions, arguing that the unloaded open carry that current law provides for is sufficient to meet the constitutional requirement for the “bear” part of “keep and bear arms.” When these cases are appealed, it’s quite possible that will no longer be the case. DC v. Heller strongly implied there was a right to bear arms outside of the home, though with a wink and a nod that the states had a fair amount of leeway in regulating the manner in which firearms may be carried. The courts in the California cases have clung to the last legal avenue available, which the California legislature is moving speedily to close. This should be interesting.

Markie Marxist sez: “As the Second Amendment says, it’s the ‘right to keep not bear arms’. My commie compadres in Commiefornia are moving to close the “bear” loophole in accordance with the Bill of Rights. People who bear arms have lots of rights. They have the right to be arrested, jailed, prosecuted, convicted, sentenced, fined and imprisoned. It’s just a common communist sense interpretation of the Constitution, nothing more. Really it is!”
Oh, and by the by, we’ll be releasing 30,000 career criminals because our prison system is ovedrcrowded. You’re welcome.
