Another Brick In The Wall

Well, he’s gone and done it.  Our hippie governor, Jerry Brown… you know, he of the “I have 3 guns and 1 dog” statement to to a roomful of cops, has just signed a bill into law (California AB 144) that makes it illegal “to carry an exposed and unloaded handgun in public or in a vehicle”.  Violators face up to a year in prison or a potential fine of $1,000 when the law takes effect on January 1, 2012.

An excerpt of AB 144:  “The bill would, subject to exceptions, make it a misdemeanor to openly carry an unloaded handgun on the person or openly and exposed in a motor vehicle in specified public areas and would make it a misdemeanor with specified penalties to openly carry an exposed handgun in a public place or public street, as specified, if the person at the same time possesses ammunition capable of being discharged from the handgun, and the person is not in lawful possession of the handgun, as specified.”

The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution as ratified by the States 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.”  [emphasis mine].

So, I can’t carry a handgun on my hip… even an unloaded one.  I can’t have an unloaded handgun in my vehicle, if that weapon can be seen from outside the vehicle.  This begs the question, when and where may I bear arms?  If I am out in the back country target shooting, or practicing shooting on the move, am I in violation of the law if I carry my (un)loaded handgun in a holster on my hip?

Jerry, you’ve gone way too far on this one.  If the courts don’t strike this down as unconstitutional, me and my 401(k) are out of here.  As much as I love California, it’s moronic (and hypocritical) Governor and all the Left Wing Loon Legislators can kiss my rebel ass.  Go ahead and hand the State over to all the folks on the dole and the illegal aliens.  You won’t have my tax money to piss away anymore.
