No Concealed Carry In California!

I just heard on the news that in California they ruled in the appeals court that people do not have a second amendment right to carry concealed handguns in public. This is a blow to the gun culture and the gun rights movement. To anybody living in the Golden state you have my sympathies.

Doesn't apply to Nancy.

We've already got a very detailed thread on the issue here. It's worth reading through from the beginning so the context and strategic importance become clear.
