Remember this guy? I already poked at him here. For those who refuse to click on links, the jackass posted against open carry, said that an XD is not a “decent pistol”, and has unstated (at least within the post itself) issues with Serpa holsters. (My take on Serpa holsters is here, for the record.) In my earlier post, I jumped in his shit, mostly for denigrating the XD/Serpa as a carry choice.
He ended the post with an arrogant and obviously anti-open carry “How’s that workin’ out for ya, Cali?”. Presumably, he was referring to CA’s open carry ban, which he seems to attribute to events like the one in Oceanside between a cop and an open carrier. That pissed me off, but I had no effective response at the time.
Ten days ago, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit handed down a decision in Peruta v. County of San Diego, invalidating San Diego, California’s requirement that conceal-carry permits only be issued to those gun owners who have a “good cause” to carry a concealed gun in public. That essentially makes California a “shall-issue” state, although there will likely be more legal fights in other localities forcing them to abide by the court’s decision. I would say that such is a pretty good outcome for California gun owners.
I was going to answer his smartass closing question by directing him to the recent court decision, but I couldn’t. He has closed the comments.
