California Court Rules General Public Not Guaranteed Automatic Right To Carry Concealed

Which is par for the course for Kommiefornia.
However, they just set up a strong argument for open carry by their own admission.

You can absolutely guarantee that someone is going to jump on that now with both feet.


The fucking commies down there could use a good bitch slapping.

Californians don’t have automatic right to carry concealed weapons in public, appeals court says

A federal appeals court decided Thursday that people do not have a constitutional right to carry concealed weapons in public.
Overturning a three-judge panel’s decision, a larger group of judges from the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said California counties may require people who want permits for concealed guns to show a specific reason why they need the weapons.
“The 2nd Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public,” the court ruled, 7-4.
The 11-judge panel took up the case after state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris appealed a ruling by a panel of the 9th Circuit in February 2014 that struck down a policy of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The department had required applicants to show “good cause” why they needed a concealed weapons permit.
The 2-1 decision held that the policy was overly restrictive.
The dissenting judges argued that the 2nd Amendment allows people to carry a gun in public to defend themselves. Because California bans openly carrying guns, the counties must permit people to carry concealed weapons, the dissenting judges said
The majority responded that the 2nd Amendment “may or may not protect to some degree a right of a member of the general public to carry a firearm openly.”
But if there is such a right, it is a right only to carry a gun openly, and that issue was not before the court,the majority said.

My bold.

There you go, now pounce on that and shove it right back down their throats. The motherfuckers just set themselves up.

They still don't seem to comprehend that whole, shall not be infringed, idea.

As for showing "good cause", hey people, it's California.

That should be reason enough.
