Assembly passes ban on carrying unloaded handguns in public
Legislation to outlaw the carrying of unloaded handguns in public was passed Tuesday by the Assembly.The measure, Assembly Bill 1934, received the bare-minimum number of votes necessary, passing 41-25, with Republicans opposed.The bill was crafted in response to a protest movement, "Open Carry," in which activists wield unloaded guns in public places to publicize opposition togun-control laws as well as difficulties in obtaining concealed-weapons permits.Supporters of AB 1934 said that current law places police in an untenable position, responding to reports of gun-wielding pedestrians but unable legally todemand that such protesters show identification or proof that their weapon is registered.Opponents countered that AB 1934 would infringe on Californians' right to bear arms and to protest peacefully in whatever manner they choose.State law bans the carrying of loaded firearms in public, but not unloaded weapons. AB 1934 would make it a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail, to carry an exposed, unloaded gun in a public place or on a public streetinside a city or in prohibited unincorporated areas of a county.The bill contains numerous exceptions, including display of a firearm by a peace officer, authorized military organization, firearm dealer, or by a licensedhunter while engaged in that sport. AB 1934 now goes to the Senate.

Actually potential robbersdo not telegraph their intent bywalking intoa restaurant with an openly carriedgun. If they do then they take totheir illegal business and do not sit downto have lunchfirst.You are one more person who does not have a lick of commonsense trying to regulate my law abiding behavior because you haveunfounded fears.

I'm more concerned about thugs illegally carrying concealedweapons that are loaded.Our legislators are wastingtime with this law. Perhapswe need tooutlaw the practice of legislators brandishing unloaded craniumswhile in session.

Yes pisdry,Always treat a gun as though it were loaded: they have NO PLACEIN PUBLIC PLACES.I strongly suspect if you compared murder rates your spuriouscriticism of British gun restrictions would disintegrate.
