Governor Brown of Ca just signed a bill making it illegal to carry an unloaded handgun in public if it's not on your property. (the way I understand it). He said it uses up valuable police personnel checking everyone carrying a handgun in public thats reported. Goes into effect 1/1/12. People are saying that they will just carry an unloaded rifle or shotgun in public, this bill only covers handguns! Another step toward infringement of our rights. Of course this does not change anything if you are an off duty or retired officer!
