This is akin to Clintonista Mineta who continues to make the armed airline pilot program SO incovieninet and burdensome with rules that it functionally does not exist.
There are lots (probably numbering over a million) of active gun owners in this state and all the gun stores in my area are doing well. As far as the climate of inconvenience, that is a problem but not unsurmountable, and there are the liberal antigun pockets like SF.
I am hardly an expert but I can see with my own two eyes. No one I know goes out in the woods unarmed.
