California open carry ban is reported out of committee
Story here. Since the State has "may issue" CCW permits, this would amount to "may issue" for carrying, period. On the other hand, it'd undercut the permit issuers' position in the California challenges to that, where one of their arguments is that the permit issuance only affects concealed carry, not open (albeit with a ban on open carry of a loaded firearm).
Yup, if it passes, the law will require that long guns be open carried to Starbucks and the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica - no more holstered handguns.

CA is determined to be on the wrong side of history, and be sort of a "green Mexico", perhaps.
