    You can do what you like but do not be surprised when this happens.
    Lucky someone didn't get run over while hubby was tailing the shady looking guy.

    For me that is way to much drama to go through all the time to pack an unloaded gun around.

    I prefer to blend in and be forgotten.
    Not making a spectacle of myself.

    To each their own.:thumbup:

    C'mon lady, get a life. Bet's she's related to this person, luckily the keystone cops got the address wrong so they weren't able to pester this guy:

    "A witness, who spotted Huberty as he left his apartment and proceeded down San Ysidro Boulevard with two firearms, phoned the police, but the dispatcher gave the reporting officers the wrong address."

    I've heard before that it is legal to carry a firearm in California, so long as it is unloaded... not to beat a dead horse or anything, but what the f*** is the point of that?!

    If I was an upstanding citizen in an area that placed that restriction on carrying, I would not want to draw attention to myself, as posessing a useless firearm, by carrying one!!!

    Why would anyone ever carry a beautiful and expensive, blunt throwing object?!

    In CA, its more political statement than anything else at that point.

    Before I left San Jose, there was a group that organized itself (forget the name) but they were promoting open carry. They would set up meeting times a various coffee shops or dinners. Walnut Creek and San Jose were pretty popular with this group of guys.

    Peete's Coffee and one other place banned open carry(display of firearms) from their stores. Starbucks was open to them. One one news report, I remember a Starbucks worker saying, "You might be surprised by this, but I feel really safe right now."

    I applauded the intent of these guys, but there was no way on this green earth that I was going to do so. These guys attracted too much attention, tied up valuable LE resources, because the LEO's would gather in the same neighborhood, just incase something happened.

    Practice your speed reload! You can carry an unloaded pistol and a loaded magazine in a mag pouch.

    ...better 'n nothin'

    CA is getting better these days too. Many counties are practically shall-issue for CHLs so if you live in CA just make sure you live in one of those. You'll still have to live with those butchered AR-15s though lmao.

    What an annoying bubblegum. I suppose that *is* the type of person who would actually bother to call it in, but still.

    Yeah,and nobody else could take it from you and load it right?

    That guy is beyond stupid!

    I would like to kick his *** just to make a stupid point like he is.

    He will get taken down by someone who will steal his gun and kill innocent people with it.

    OK the guy is stupid enough to walk around ,open carrying an unloaded gun.
    Some criminals can read,and know that the gun has to be UNLOADED to open carry.
    And the fool video tapes all of it,bringing all the attention he can to himself

    Eventually,someone will catch on and there is a good chance this idiot will get attacked and his gun taken.

    The numbers are there,there is plenty of bad element in SoCal.
    He has a really good chance of being gleaned off.
    Oh well
