Another one was stopped in L. A. heading to the gay pride parade with a car full of homemade bombs and guns.

If hundreds of other mass shootings are any indication, nothing.

Sorry. I mean, "thoughts and prayers."

Also bicker. A lot. It's depressing how little really changes, even just going off of the reactions of friends. At this point, we'll just take from tragedies like these whatever will reinforce our existing beliefs. At least there seems to be more of a concerted effort to not only mourn, but also get out and help however ordinary people can (such as donating blood).

Unreal. Thoughts and prayers coming from Canada - which yes, is a legitimate actual thing people can say and be serious about.

Real question; I'm scheduled to head top a trip down to California later this year. Should I be fearing for my safety based on having to cover up my whole body for health reasons?

Define "cover up". You have to wear a burka or something?

See my profile picture on here, although it's out of date, I have to cover up the nose now too. I have severe photosensitivity, anaphylactic reactions to ultraviolet. Only thing you'll see is my eyes.

No joke, but some jurisdictions have banned that sort of thing. There are many places where you cannot obscure your face in public. They were measures to stop the KKK from being able to hide their faces.

Check the local laws of the places you are visiting here in the states. If you have proof of your medical condition with you, you should be ok. I'm sure no law enforcement would actually accost you, but to some it might look suspicious.

France has outright banned facial coverings of all sorts, meaning I can never go there. Good point about looking into local laws before leaving.

One thing to note in particular;

I've been carded here in Canada, so yeah. This happens.

San Ramon, and probably San Francisco.

EDIT: And the airport(s).

You should be fine. Lots of people cover up from the sun out here in the summer. Several of the guys I coach high school football with have hats like that, they never bother velcroing the front together. In San Francisco you may want to invest in one of these (carhartt.com) it gets windy and chilly there.
