    Federal Appeals Court: Second Amendment Doesn’t Guarantee Right to Concealed Carry

    California has a rich tradition in restricting carrying handguns.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In a victory for gun control advocates, a federal appeals court said Thursday people do not have a right to carry concealed weapons in public under the 2nd Amendment.

    An 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said law enforcement officials can require applicants for a concealed weapons permit to show they are in immediate danger or have another good reason for a permit beyond self-defense.

    California generally prohibits people from carrying handguns in public without such a permit.

    Wow. The article goes on to state that more people carrying guns endangers police lives. But one qualification to obtain a permit is to have a good moral character. This is an oxymoron. This state wants to rescind their 2A and their leaders in DC want to rescind 2A from all states!

    And not this:

    An attorney for the plaintiffs said Thursday that he is considering an appeal to the Supreme Court, but indicated that future challenges might need to focus on the right to carry a firearm in the open rather than in a concealed manner.
    “The Peruta decision specifically avoided answering the critical legal question of whether, if concealed carry is prohibited, some form of open carry of firearms must be allowed,” said attorney Chuck Michel. “California law bans open carry, so the constitutionality of that ban will now have to be tested.”

    Charles Nichols will be pleased to note that what should have been obvious previously, has finally been accepted as fact.

    There is nothing wrong with this thread.
