The average American supports the RKBA which is why we have seen a steady return of rights in most places. However, the pendulum of public opinion can very quickly swing the other way and self serving politicians will once again seek ways to deny our freedoms.
I don't believe that actually, not in the OC context. It should be remembered that, before the current limitations on firearms, it was common for municapilities to ban carry or display of firearms. At least thats what Hollywood tells me.
Having said that, I think OC is just fine if its SASS arms and appropriate gear, including spurs that jingle jangle jingle.
