A man was stabbed in the Target parking lot in what police believe was a gang-related assault Friday afternoon.

He sustained two puncture wounds that are not believed to be life-threatening, emergency workers said. The victim is a Hispanic male in his late-teens, said David Durand, public information officer for American Medical Response.

    Until Saturday when I heard a Open Carry supporter speak, I did not know that California is actually an Open Carry state (However there is a bill sitting on Brown's desk to overturn that) As long as you are in certain areas (can't be within so many feet of a school, or a place that posts a "No Firearms" notice), you are actually allowed to open carry as long as your ammo is kept separate from the unloaded gun, and covered..hhhmmm, six shooters with a hip holster, or a cool looking shoulder holster...decisions, decisions..

    It makes me wonder if maybe there needs to a progression in a firearms permit process. And I admit I don't have one and know nothing about the permit process. Level one, home defense only. weapon is allowed in the home only. Level 2, sporting use. hunters and recreational use permit. Level 3, carry anywhere permit, which would, after basic law enforcement training permitted to use to deter crime. Obviously refinement would need to be hashed out.

    No need to argue. I understand the many mishaps that occur when folks are not properly trained in the use of firearms, and esp. the need to keep them locked up and out of the hands of children.

    Raymond, I don't argue the right of anyone (law abiding citizen) of owning a gun. But for every example of your's where a life was saved, there are dozens of accidental injuries and deaths from firearms. My in-laws family friends had their son killed by his older brother when the gun went off accidentally and struck the little brother in the chest.

    While I do agree to a point with your comment, Kevin, "Being aware of your surroundings (such as target, Wal-mart, Food-4-Less) does not make one expecting a gang attack, be it a knife or a gun. If there is no red flags with the police department, in particular a clean record, a citizen if it was required to complete a firearms training class as part of the process, would enable someone, at some point to save their own life or someone elses. In 1990, I saved a mans life in washington state being attacked by 3 gang members. It is unimportant that the victim was drunk walking home. The point is he would have been dead and front page news with gang members laughing had I not come to his aid.

    Don't need a CCW, all you need it a good swift kick to the knee, preferably from the inside out.

    The problem with everyone having a gun is look at all the stupid things people do driving, what do you think they would do with a gun in their hands? Have no problem with people who want a gun, but it is not the solution for everyone. Being aware of your situation and knowing what to do at all times works just as well.

    Latinos in bad gangs. Even Target shopping center. Yes we need guns to shoot bad tattoo latinos and gangs. More security and police on lwer sac & kettleman. West side citizens deserve protection!

    Lodi Police will "Never" loosen their grip on (CCW) Concealed Weapons Permits to allow more people to protect their own lives or the life of someone being attacked. It is strange to see this attack to occur on the west side.

    Maybe Texas has it right. Its getting to be that law abiding people need immediate "legal"protection like they do in their state.

    Q: What is required to purchase a firearm in the state of Texas?

    A: You will need a valid state-issued ID. Many FFLs will not sell to out-of-state residents. This is due to the FFL's requirement to uphold your resident state's gun laws, and the inherient complexity associated with many states.

    Q: Can I carry a firearm on my person?

    A: Yes, with proper licensing (Concealed Handgun License) you may carry a pistol or revolver on your person so long as it remains concealed. Long guns (rifles / shotguns) do not have to be concealed, but must be carried in a manner not calculated to cause alarm, and do not require a license
