Peninsula man carries gun into supermarket

A Peninsula man is apologizing after carrying a handgun into an East Palo Alto supermarket Wednesday.

The man says he got the idea from seeing a Livermore man on TV earlier this month exercising his right to carry an unloaded weapon.

It's legal in California, as long as it's not near a school.

So Wednesday, the Redwood City man walked into the Mi Pueblo Market, with a handgun on his hip.

The store manager called police. They determined he didn't break any laws, but the store exercised its right to make him leave.
