    SACRAMENTO, Calif. A federal judge ruled Monday there is no constitutional right to carry a hidden gun in public a decision that dealt a setback to gun-rights advocates who had challenged how much discretion California law enforcement officials have in issuing concealed weapons permits.

    U.S. District Court Judge Morrison England Jr. in Sacramento supported a policy by Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto that says applicants must have a reason, such as a safety threat, to legally carry a concealed weapon in his county northwest of Sacramento.

    How does this judge's ruling ban open carry?

    I read his ruling as referring to concealed carry.

    This is irrelevant to Maine and should be in the CA forum.

    The Federal Judges ruling could very well impact Maine.

    OK - you took the "meanwhile" statements from the article and made them the title to your link. Seems misleading as that has nothing to do with the judge's opinion.

    How - please explain.

    Are you saying that a decision in a federal General District Court in California would establish applicable case law effecting decisions by a judge in Maine Federal District Court? If so, I am unaware of such relationship.
