Default Calif. concealed weapon law tossed by fed appeals court

Calif. concealed weapon law tossed by fed appeals court

SAN FRANCISCO A divided federal appeals court has struck down California's concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes.

The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to California's.

The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that law-abiding citizens can keep handguns in the home for self-defense purposes, but didn't address whether that right extends outside the home.

Thumbs up

This is really good news. Thanks for posting this one Jean.

It might be up to a year before we see the results of this, but it should give our gun hating legislature something to stumble over in their efforts to strip Californians of their right to self-defense weapons.
