    i don't agree. the 9th circuit in their ruling hinted that if they would have come against the open carry ban, they would have won the case. but, based on years and years of historical context...i mean, they went back to like the 1500's....concealed carry is not protected by the second amendment, it may be licensed, banned, regulated, etc. but open carry is protected under the second amendment.

    If the court rules that the Open Carry Ban is constitutional because law abiding people have a RIGHT to the "alternative outlet" of a license, we win. But, the Open Carry Ban stands and Dale Norman still has to pay his fine (I'll pay it for him). In that case, law abiding people have a RIGHT to the concealed carry license rather than just the privilege of a license that we have now. More litigation will ensue to challenge many restrictive provisions of the license and more lobbying will happen to legalize licensed open carry. This "alternative outlet" thorey is what the 9th Cir. just rejected en banc in Peruta.

    If the court rules that the Open Carry Ban is unconstitutional because the state did not meet its burden to show the legislative intent and/or any efficacy toward the purported public safety interest, we win. In that case, banning OC is unconstitutional... at least as applied to licensees and perhaps as applied to all law abiding people.
    If it is only as applied to licensees, then all law abiding people have a RIGHT to the license rather than the privilege of a license that we have now. In that case, more litigation will ensue to challenge many restrictive provisions of the license.
    If it is as applied to all law abiding people, banning Open Carry is unconstitutional but the concealed carry license continues to be a supplemental privilege. More lobbying will ensue to protect the unlicensed right to carry openly.

    If the court rules that the Open Carry Ban is unconstitutional because of a violation of substantive due process, we win. In that case, banning Open Carry is unconstitutional but the concealed carry license continues to be a supplemental privilege. More lobbying will ensue to protect the unlicensed right to carry openly.

    There is a lot of nuance to what the court may or may not rule and it is ALL conjecture at this point, but it is pretty clear that we are all going to get something positive out of this case.


    makes sense.

    Notice of Supplemental Authority to Peruta v. San Diego en banc

    Well, a strange thing happened yesterday. Florida filed a notice of supplemental authority to the en banc Peruta v. San Diego decision but did not say anything in its notice as to why Peruta is helpful to the states case.

    I hope that Norman's attorney likewise files a notice, only this time explaining why the decision is helpful to his case.
    Concealed carry is of no use to me, I don't carry a purse.

    The state's actions throughout this case have led me to believe they may be intentionally trying to throw the case. But the FL courts thus far haven't been complying.

    Perhaps, but still having a hard time believing these CA9 judges are going to make a positive ruling for meaningful OC. I have images in my head of Lucy, Charlie Brown and the football.

    I don't get it. If it's not irrelevant to the case, doesn't it hurt the state's position that our right is the licensed privilege to carry the gun hidden only?

    Maybe it's the dissent the state likes? Doesn't do them any good either.

    It's being hypothesized on another forum that the state didn't even read Peruta. The more I think about it, it's probably true. What this means is that if/when the FLSC rules that the OC ban is constitutional, our Judiciary is no better than Congo's or Eritrea's. The state will have argued against itself and the kourt will have proved its utter illegitimacy. If the legislature wants us to insert a gun into our butt hole, it's ok because the legislature passed an anti gun law.

    I'm done, wake me up when the shooting starts.

    They're happy with even the most absurd argument. At least 3 of the so-called "justices" on the FLSC would listen to you reading out of the phone book for 18 hours, and call it a sound argument for growing waffles on the moon. Which, of course, means that guns are bad. And potato. Don't forget potato. Their song and dance has become precisely this absurd, and putting a believable facade on it is damn near impossible. Fortunately, no one is paying any attention tot he man behind the curtain, so the emperor behind the curtain can dance naked and Huxley's masses will never notice that they've actually begged to be Orwell's...

    Seems like generating chaos... So much word spaghetti that there's no way to follow the dis-logic, then conclude flatly that RKBA doesn't exist. Bye now.

    The one thing to consider though is a Norman win on the OC ban (licensing issue will be tossed IMO) under the FL Constitution is basically appeal proof. Just depends if these guys are willing to create a split and open them up to SCOTUS review to preserve the OC ban.

    Sorry, I just don't see the first result as a win. They're not going to rule on specific criteria of the license or say it has to be shall issue. I think it'll be a wash in practice.

    Norman's attorney thinks so, but it very well could be next year. I do not think the court has a deadline.

    I called the clerk for the Florida Supreme Court and inquired about the time frame for court decisions. According to her; there are no time constraints on a decision.
    Maybe they are going to wait us OFWGs out.

    I hope it's before the next legislative session. The opinion will be awful and treasonous, but the question is just how bad will it be? Hopefully, bad enough to push relatively pro gun law makers to push a licensed OC/ strict scrutiny bill all the way through.
