LAPD Chief Beck Warns Open Carry Movement

“What I can tell you is that if you Open Carry in Los Angeles you’re going to get inspected a lot.” – LAPD Chief Charlie Beck

This is an exact quote from Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. He and Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy Baca answered a question regarding openly carrying a firearm at last night’s Crawford Family Forum. Openly carrying a firearm is something which is legal in California albeit with a myriad of state restrictions. As I have reported earlier, the police agencies and prosecutors in this state have taken the position that the United States Supreme Court decisions Heller and McDonald never happened. Heller is the High Court decision that held the 2nd Amendment core right is one of self defense and that we have the right to carry a weapon for the purpose of self-defense. The McDonald decision applied the Heller decision to all of the states and local governments, including the city and county of Los Angeles.

Although harassment isn’t as onerous a threat as is outright murder, which a predecessor of Beck made to the people of Los Angeles in 1926, given the history of the LAPD, one can reasonably conclude that his threat goes beyond intimidation.-[source]
