Was going to post this in "Places Off Limits" but it's really more of a rant. And Kommiefornia - duh. I had to head to CA on short notice last week for a bit of a family emergency. No time to check handgunlaw.us, but being that it is CA I knew it was heavily restricted and my GWCL is no good. As a result, I left my gun at home. Needless to say I felt naked while there, having to rely only upon police should the need arise. I was walking around in Wranglers and boots, which was fairly common when I lived there, and it seemed people were looking at me strangely. One day I was wearing a Ruger t-shirt walking through a Home Depot. One guy walked by, looked at my shirt, and then studied me as if I was some sort of threat. Also saw a lot of political ads - CA has something like 60 ballot propositions this year, most outlandishly left wing. One ad talked about a rep who supported the NRA and more conservative views. The ad ended with, "She's not with us, she's with them." Beautiful state, but I could never live there again.
