    “It’s unconstitutional to ban an entire class of weapons, one that the public finds most useful for self-defense,” says Charles Nichols, president of California Right To Carry and the man behind the first lawsuit to challenge California’s open carry gun ban.

    Nichols sat down with’s Tim Cavanaugh to discuss his lawsuit, which is actually targeting the original ban from the 1970s that prohibited the carrying of loaded weapons. They discussed his prospects for success, as well as California’s extremely strict gun control laws and how they might hold up in a post-DC v. Heller world.
