I carry a state-approved handgun lock and a state-approved long-gun lock in my car. Any time I choose to buy a firearm, I can trot those into the store and demonstrate that I don't have to pay the extra $15-$20.
You know what they told me when I asked them if I couldn’t just bring my locks in to prove I didn’t need to buy one? A big fat “NO!” The only way that gang of traitors in Sacramento felt they could be assured the gun lock met current legal standards would be for gun buyers to buy a new lock at the time of purchase. I want out of this state SO bad!
