Jerry Brown signs bill banning open display of unloaded rifles
Sacramento Bee ^ | Sep 28 2012 | Sacramento Bee

Posted on 09/28/2012 4:26:02 PM PDT by WilliamIII

Gun-toting demonstrators will not be able to openly display their unloaded rifles in California cities under legislation signed Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown.

The governor vetoed a separate gun-related measure, however, that would have barred peace officers from selling to the public potentially unsafe handguns that are not available at stores.

Two Assembly Democrats, Anthony Portantino of La Canada Flintridge and Tom Ammiano of San Francisco, carried the ban on open display of unloaded rifles, Assembly Bill 1527.

The measure is a companion to legislation signed into law last year banning open display of handguns.

Firearms used to be ubiquitous in Ca.
You could buy them everywhere, and shoot them just about anywhere that had open land.

Now you can’t do squat

Yep. Load them and put them to use cleaning out the trash trying to enslave you.

This will only get worse until they are stopped.

So when I finish building my new AR-15, I could be in trouble with California when posts photos of it on line unloaded? Well, I guess I will have to load up the magazine first then.

This law clearly violates the 2nd amendment.

Challenge it.

Lemme see if I understand. In California your right to display an unloaded firearm is henceforth banned. But just north in Portland, Oregon, it's against the law to display a "not unloaded" firearm. That's just crazy, man.

California IS Bizarro World

BAD - Naked display of unloaded gun

GOOD - Public nudity is legal in the state. Naked queers are allowed to sit and dine in restaurants.

An Ode to the West Coast
(I learned this from a nun.)

Hiawatha’s Mittens

He killed the noble Mudjokivis,
Of the skin he made him mittens,
Made them with the fur side inside,
Made them with the skin side outside,
He, to keep the warm side inside,
Put the inside skin outside,
Put the warm side fur side inside,
That’s why he put the fur side inside,
Why he put the skin side outside,
Why he turned them inside outside.
Fini

Ah, Jerry, Jerry, you have no idea what your state is really like. In my county, we don’t display unloaded firearms...they’re ALL loaded! Moron.

The way old Jer and the Democrats are running California into the dirt, they better pass a law outlawing tar, feathers and tomatoes, too.

I found that the NRA put up a site:

Must-See “GunBanObama” Site Now Active
Sept 28, 2012

http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2012/must-see-gunbanobama-site-now-active.aspx

“To take a closer look at where Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment, please be sure to visit another NRA-PVF website—GunBanObama.com. This website is a comprehensive resource for the facts on Barack Obama’s anti-Second Amendment stance.

GunBanObama.com is loaded with features and information that you, as a gun owner, need to see for yourself. It will also help you educate your fellow Second Amendment advocates. You’ll want to pass GunBanObama.com along to anyone you know who loves freedom and supports the Second Amendment. “

“Firearms used to be ubiquitous in Ca.”

I’m not sure when the down-slide started, but it was Gov. Reagan that banned carrying around a loaded firearm in CA. In response to the Black Panthers carrying them on their marches. Unintended consequences and all that.

To summarize, government forces have 2A rights unencumbered, you citizen peons have none.

I read some of the comments - one leftist claims that he and others are heavily armed and “practice a lot” in case they need to quell a revolution. I guess even Kalifornians can boast about being “manly” from an anonymous vantage point...
