SACRAMENTO -- The so-called open-carry movement took a hit Tuesday when the state Assembly approved a bill 45-25 that would forbid anyone from openly carrying an unloaded handgun. It now moves to the Senate.
The measure by Assemblywoman Lori Saldaņa, D-San Diego, came in response to advocates who have been toting unloaded pistols in public in an attempt to expand Second Amendment gun rights.
She and other Democrats behind the measure, AB1934, called it a public safety issue and said law enforcement groups support the bill. Republicans said the measure targets law-abiding citizens.
