Dozens of gun owners gather in Pacific Beach to protest new law

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of gun owners gathered Saturday in Pacific Beach to protest a new law that will not allow carrying handguns in public.  Starting January 1, 2012, Bill AB144 will make it illegal to carry a handgun in public.

As you might expect, the protesters drew quite a bit of attention from both the police as well as visitors to the beach.

Doug Kolk filed this video report from Pacific Beach with reactions from people on both sides of the issue.  One group are gun owners demonstrating for their rights and the other group the public, family oriented beach visitors.

The Responsible Citizens of California held a group meeting before the event briefing demonstrators on public safety and legal issues related to them carrying their weapons into Pacific Beach.
