    Is it lawful to carry a 2' piece of bamboo in the backseat (or trunk) of my car.

    Bamboo? I think the street legal length is only 18"

    Okay, I kid, I kid!

    I've only worked as a cop in two states (CA & CO) and there was never any law specifically concerning bamboo.

    Now, if your bamboo is leaded, polished, had a rubber grommet or a lanyard attached in CA, you're looking at 12020 PC...carrying a billy club...felony

    Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

      Lawful? Yes. Smart? No.

      Violent bands of pandas are showing up in all sorts of metropolitan areas and people are getting jacked over way less than two feet of bamboo. If you must carry it, do so, but I would recommend using a "Bamboo Club" to secure your prized stick.
      Magistrate: "Do you have any other pending charges?"
      Drunk: "Well there's this thing where the cops said I spit blood on them."
      Me: "Wait a minute, that was me!"
      Drunk: "Oh... now you like me even less."

          Last I heard, Bamboo was outlawed years ago...


          I jest.


          Why are you carrying bamboo in your car?

              Ok, by the sounds of it then common sense applies. It's definitely not a billy club or other type of purpose built weapon.

                But why do you carry it. In Cali if your carrying it for "protection" it's a weapon and in violation of 12020 P.C.

                  .
                  Can't you just keep a wooden semi truck "tire checker" in your car?



                  I used too. It even had a metal band around the top. Ouch.

                    Do you know how asinine that sounds to anyone not from the Kommunist Kountry of Kalifornia?

                      +1 +1 +1. Wow, thank you for expressing my exact views in one simple sentence. Here in Arkansas a 2' piece of bamboo isn't going to do much good against farmer Bob, his shotgun, and 12 dogs. Save some trouble and get a gun.

                        Odd thing is...and I have zero love for the CA Legislature...that 12020 PC section contained billy clubs, brass knuckles, blackjacks, etc. back when I started in the late 70's, when we still had (R) governors and assembly people who were split almost 50/50.

                          Yeah, but you know anything you carry in your car or your person can be a weapon for self defense. An officer could make a case that I carry my car keys to poke someones eyes out. I carry a tire iron in my car - not to fix a flat - but to beat someone's head in. Lord forbid, I get caught with an umbrella in my car. I suppose that would be a felony. Come-on there has to be a case for common sense but I guess that's asking too much from Kalifornia.

                            Common sense was declared illegal in Kullyfohrnya quite some time ago.

                            Two weeks after moving to CO, I walked into a gun shop and saw every CA banned weapon, for sale, on one wall.

                            For gun purchases I went from a mandatory ten day wait (even as a CA cop) to a 30-45 min. wait (as a private citizen).

                            I don't miss it, one bit.

                              seriously? Bamboo? Go buy a baseball glove, put a base ball in it, then get you a good aluminum Easton! Just remember not to bring a bat to a gun fight!
