With the backing of law enforcement organizations and in the wake of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D – La Cañada Flintridge) is proposing a statewide ban on openly carrying unloaded firearms in public places. Unless such a law is passed, it would remain legal in California for gun owners to display unloaded weapons in coffee shops, on street corners and in other public places, and also carry on their person ammunition that could be loaded into those guns.

Despite being behind Democrat Mike Gatto by more than 6,000 votes, it could be several days before Republican Sunder Ramani is ready to make a decision on conceding the 43rd Assembly District race as county workers tally thousands of remaining ballots, a campaign spokesman said. Gatto won nearly 60% of the vote in Tuesday's special election to fill the vacant seat until the general election on Nov. 2, according to preliminary results from the Los Angeles County registrar. But on Wednesday, John Thomas, Ramani's campaign manager, said he had been notified that at least 5,000 late absentee ballots and an unknown amount of provisional ballots had yet to be counted.
