I think Gov. Moonbeam is the one that just blinked since this act surely IMPROVES our chances in Federal court with the several cases going through the system at this point. With his /snip/ supporters, he didn't really have any other choice politically, but legally, I believe he just made a fatal mistake as far the right to carry issues. In fact, I am glad he signed it to force the issue.
One of the reasons the San Diego case fell apart was the option to open carry. Now that open carry is no longer available, the arguments for MAY ISSUE is going to be very problematic for the courts in CA.
Any legal experts out there that could comment on this would be greatly appreciated since I am just an interested party, nothing more.
