Shall Issue in California?

Proposed easing of concealed-weapons law draws fire - Sacramento News - Local and Breaking Sacramento News | Sacramento Bee Assembly bill 357 would change California from "may issue" to "shall issue." Law enforcement has their knickers is a twist.

It is interesting that they have someone from Pink Pistols advocating passage of the measure. (Or it's interesting to me anyway.)
Among supporters of Knight's bill is Deanna Sykes, co-founder of the Sacramento chapter of Pink Pistols, an international group that advocates gun ownership by gays and lesbians. Their slogan: "Armed gays don't get bashed."

"I think it's a benefit to society if the good guys have the ability to protect themselves," Sykes said.

Part of the mission of the Pink Pistols is to promote self-defense in the gay community, Sykes said.
Good luck to the good folks in CA.
