“Johnny Stone was arrested Sept. 9, 2009, while visiting family members in the Sunnydale housing projects,” sfappeal.com reports. “His attorney, Deputy Public Defender Arial Boyce-Smith, said that he had borrowed [a] gun for a trip to the car to retrieve baby food and diapers for his crying niece, after hearing gunshots in the area earlier that day. Stone testified during the trial that he had been robbed on a previous visit to the area and that a cousin had been shot on the same block.” So it’s Constitutional Carry in The People’s Republic of Kalifornia? “The defense was one of necessity,” Boyce-Smith said. “It was clear Mr. Stone took the gun solely for protection. He was acting in an emergency and it was necessary for him to have the gun to protect himself from great bodily harm.” So if you need a gun, it’s OK to carry one? My sentiments exactly. Remove the arrest, prosecution and jury part of the program and we’re good to go.
