The California Senate rejected a bill Monday that would have made it illegal to carry unloaded guns in public, but lawmakers will give the vote one more try.
Monday’s 20-16 vote fell one short of the majority needed, but the Senate will reconsider the measure Tuesday.
Let’s hope Equality California (EqCA) and other groups concerned will the welfare of gay people are working hard to keep state Senators from voting in favor of this bill.
Now, if all law-abiding citizens could obtain Concealed Carry permits in the Golden State, gay people would feel a lot safer. Aware that gay people might be armed, thugs would be far less likely to attack us. (Alas, that that is not even under consideration.)
The current bill would take one more right away form us and I trust those so concerned about our rights will be working overtime to defeat it again when the Senate reconsiders it.
