California Moves Closer to Prohibiting Open Carry

Posted on the 18 May 2011 by Mikeb302000
The Washington Post reports
The bill’s author, Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Portantino of La Canada Flintridge, says his bill will improve public safety. It is supported by the California Police Chiefs Association.
Not only will it "imporve public safety," it will also cut down on silly demonstrations.
What's your opinion? Will this one go all the way? Will it earn California even more Brady Points?
