    I really don't get this whole movement to get more people to open carry in California. It's only legal to open carry an unloaded gun, so everyone knows you're functionally unarmed.

    Drunk in public and packing heat


    San Mateo County sheriff

    Christian George Gonzalez

    Sure, open-carry advocates, you can flash guns in public all you want. Just don't be drunk when you do it.

    A 29-year-old man who is well-known to the local cops for his imbibing found that out the hard way in San Bruno.

    Christian George Gonzalez was allegedly plastered when he ambled up to two uniformed San Bruno police officers just after midnight Feb. 12 at a 7-Eleven parking lot, said Steve Wagstaffe, San Mateo County's chief deputy district attorney.

    He approached Officer Jack Boland and asked, "Jack, want to check me?" Wagstaffe said. Boland and Gonzalez have "known each other for many years," the prosecutor said, because of Gonzalez's predilection for alcohol.

    Gonzalez had a holstered .40-caliber handgun in plain view on his belt, Wagstaffe said. The officers confirmed that the gun wasn't loaded but that Gonzalez quite visibly was, because he "stumbled backwards and fell into the patrol car," the prosecutor said. Gonzalez was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public and was arraigned on the charge Monday.

    Two weeks before the Feb. 12 incident, Gonzalez had walked into the same 7-Eleven with a gun on his hip and told the clerk that he could carry the weapon as long as he kept it unloaded, authorities said. Seems Gonzalez is in sympathy with an ad hoc movement seeking to increase awareness of gun rights by visibly holstering weapons in public.

    Gonzalez is right on target as far as his gun rights are concerned, Wagstaffe said. "He knows the open-carry law," the prosecutor said. "But he was drunk."

    Because that nanny state will not issue permits to carry concealed to the average citizen.

    Though an idiot he may be, the majority he is not.

    That always seems to be missing from reports like this.
