Has a California Gun Control Law Backfired?

Hosted by

In 2010, California gun rights advocates created a spectacle by prominently carrying handguns at Starbucks. Under state law, their action was legal as long as the guns were unloaded. Gun control groups demanded a change, and the state legislature then banned what's called "open carry." Now a federal appellate court has ruled that there was an unintended consequence: the ban on "open carry" means there cannot also be a limit on "concealed carry."
