It seems that in the last few weeks, there have been numerous articles about people driving around Orange County with guns in their car. Or, in the case of those guys in Fullerton, sleeping with guns in their car.
Is this some kind of new trend?
Or, have people always done it, and I just never got the memo?
The chances that you would actually need a gun while driving around town seem to be pretty slim to me. Yes, there was that woman in Los Alamitos who almost got robbed/kidnapped at her bank drive-up ATM, but she seemed to really have her wits about her and drove off instead. A very good, gun-less solution. Carjacking is a violent, horrible crime, but it truly doesn’t happen enough to warrant hauling your gun around everywhere with you.
Besides the small fact that it is illegal, people whose state of mind I have no clue about, driving with their precious 9mm riding shotgun, (I couldn’t resist, ok?) really freaks me out. (Changed from my erroneous 35mm, my husband was embarassed)
