100 Members of Calif Gun Group Meet at California Pizza Kitchen

According to the Associated Press, “About 100 armed members of a group hoping to make it easier to carry a loaded gun in California have found a new gathering place after another restaurant barred firearms on its premises.”

“Members of the Open Carry movement met Saturday morning at a restaurant in Walnut Creek in the San Francisco Bay area suburbs. The meeting was to have been held at California Pizza Kitchen, but the company recently said it does not allow guests other than uniformed officers to display firearms. The pizza chain and Peet’s Coffee & Tea recently stirred debate by acknowledging their no-gun policies. Open Carry members who met Saturday carried their weapons holstered and unloaded in keeping with California law. Walnut Creek police said members met with officers before the event to have their guns checked.”
