  • May 16, 2012 - 11:27 AM is reporting that a California bill is gaining traction that would ban the open carry of rifles and shotguns in public, with some exceptions.

The bill was approved by the California Assembly, according to the website.

The bill was sponsored by Anthony Portantino, and is quoting him as saying, "This bill just makes sense. Sooner or later, somebody's going to get hurt. If you see somebody walking around a mall or main street with a shotgun, it's pretty intimidating. It's unnecessary and it's just going to lead to trouble."
