Assembly Bill 1527 called the “Open Carry Ban” passes in both the state House and Senate, and now sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk for signature. According to California statute, if the Governor does not sign it by September 30th, the measure automatically becomes law effective January 1, 2013.
Proponents of the bill say removing gun rights prevents tragedy, yet there is not one scintilla of evidence to say that is true. In fact, there are piles of evidence to show that criminal elements obtain weapons via illegal ways and use them illegally,unlike law abiding citizens who follow the law.
|With open carry banned, it's time for each and every Kalifornian to apply for his/her concealed carry permit, and to join together in a class action lawsuit which sets forth the following citations:
1) That the California Assembly has banned open carry.
2) That the only option available under the law for citizens who wish to exercise the Right to Bear Arms is therefore concealed carry.
3) That Supreme Court precedent has declared "poll taxes" and other taxes and fees for the exercise of Rights Unconstitutional.
4) That, therefore, California be prohibited from assessing any fee, tax, or cost for the issuance of a concealed carry permit.
