Standing down on open carry...

It has come to my attention through the calguns.net community that it might not be the best idea to open carry until at least August 31st, as that is when the law making session ends for the time being and whatnot. The other reasons are a little bit fuzzy at the moment because I have not taken the time to give them a closer look but it seems that they also has to do with getting California incorporated with respect to the Heller decision and the possibility of having "shall-issue" CCW permits being a contestable issue.

With the legal benefits of Heller incorporation outweighing at least the educational benefits of open carry, I will respectfully stand down on my activities for the sake of my fellow brethren in arms.

Until August 31st...

Sincerely,

Nate

I've taken the same stance. I no longer OC at all, though I was only doing it rarely to being with. The possibility of incorporation is worth more than the benefits of unloaded OC right now.

Incorporation should lead to Loaded OC, which should hopefully lead to shall-issue CCW eventually. That would be the most significant win for CA gun rights in a very long time.

I guess I shouldn't rub it in, that I OC every day, here in Michigan. ;)
