Appeals court rules no constitutional right to carry concealed guns


“A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled Thursday that people do not have a Second Amendment right to carry concealed weapons in public, in a sweeping decision likely to be challenged by gun-rights advocates.

An 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the 7-4 ruling, upholding a state law requiring applicants to show "good cause," such as a fear of personal safety, to carry a concealed firearm. The judges, further, definitively dismissed the argument that a right to carry a concealed weapon was contained in the Second Amendment…………

….. "We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public," Judge William Fletcher wrote in the majority opinion. If challenged, it could set up a Supreme Court battle……….

Some folks best learn that guns sale/use/type can be regulated by the state……..no matter what the NRA says

A little late to the party aren't you? This was discussed in a number of threads a week or two ago.

I was not aware of that......... But thanks for the "heads-up"..........

I thought would be a topic of interest with all the controversy around the Second Amendment..........

And the belief of some posters here that government has no right to regulate guns because it was a violation of ones "constitutional right"

One of the duties as prescribed in the Constitution is there constitutional duty of the Federal Courts to interpret the law...............This includes the constitution........

The ultimate decider it you will.............is SCOTUS..........

But Federal Appeal Court ruling stand until a decision by SCOTUS reverses the Appellate Court decision
