Exponentially more Californians carry loaded than unloaded.

Exponential refers to the behavior of a function, not the comparison of two numbers. ;) Sorry, that was the math teacher in me sneaking to the surface.

But, I get your point. Not being from CA, I would've assumed that so many more folks live in incorporated areas that the reverse would be true. I guess you are saying that an extremely tiny percentage of folks in towns and cities OC.

Most states DO NOT have laws against carrying loaded.

Well in all fairness alot of states do...BUT it pretty much only refers to firearms being loaded in vehicles.

I got bored so i made a list of states which do not allow loaded handguns in a vehicle without a permit(information courtesy of the OCDO maps)

These states require a permit to carry a loaded handgun in a vehicle.

Washington state
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Arkansas
Iowa
Minnesota
Illinois
Tennessee
Alabama
Florida
Michigan
Ohio
Pennsylvania
Washington DC
New Jersey
New Hampshire
Connecticut
Rhode Island
Maine
New York

ONLY california restricts loaded carrying of handguns.


for on topic reasons....+1 to the guy for protecting himself

Not exactly. It's legal in Florida provided it is "securely encased" or "not readily accessible for immediate use" (F.S. 790.25).

(5)POSSESSION IN PRIVATE CONVEYANCE.—Notwithstanding subsection (2), it is lawful and is not a violation of s. 790.01 for a person 18 years of age or older to possess a concealed firearm or other weapon for self-defense or other lawful purpose within the interior of a private conveyance, without a license, if the firearm or other weapon is securely encased or is otherwise not readily accessible for immediate use. Nothing herein contained prohibits the carrying of a legal firearm other than a handgun anywhere in a private conveyance when such firearm is being carried for a lawful use. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to authorize the carrying of a concealed firearm or other weapon on the person. This subsection shall be liberally construed in favor of the lawful use, ownership, and possession of firearms and other weapons, including lawful self-defense as provided in s. 776.012.

I got the joke, but getting back to the topic of this thread. Good deal about the two dead gang-bangers. And the guy showed real restraint, and only fired after being assaulted. Wonder if I could have shown the restraint he did after some punk was yelling at my wife.
