I frequent downtown LA much of my time for work etc.
I do understand that I could get in some problems with police officers, but what I want to know is whether I'm legally allowed to carry it. It would be inconvenient to spend a day or two in jail fighting this, but as long as I could, and win, that's what I care about.
I asked the last user to take a look at section 55.01 that I posted in the OP to give me his opinion on that, but this thread has been relatively dead in the last 3 days.
Thank you for your input, it is much appreciated.
