New concealed carry ruling won't affect Arizona

Posted June 13, 2016

A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled that California counties may impose restrictions on the issuance of concealed carry permits.

In any event, the 9th Circuit carries a reputation as the most overturned court of appeals in the country.

According to a statement from the National Rifle Association, the federal appeals court ruling blatantly disregards people's right to protect themselves. In 1897, the Supreme Court of the United States even asserted that 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms is not infringed by laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons'.

Four judges dissented from the ruling, with the main dissent by Judge Consuelo Callahan arguing that California's laws taken together amount to a substantial restriction on citizens' right to bear arms for self defense, as protected by the Second Amendment. The vast majority of middle-American states, in a sharp shift from the early 1980s, presume the opposite, that everyone, barring legal or mental problems, has a basic right to concealed carry a gun. Ferguson said Thursday he filed petitions in Snohomish and Thurston County Superior Courts asking them to enforce subpoenas issued in the case, seeking documents pertaining to Eyman, his political committees, his for-profit company and a for-profit signature gathering company.

There's an awesome audacity in asking a judge to prioritize the dreams and aspirations of a person convicted of sexual assault. Audience members will include victims of sexual assault, experts, lawmakers and the families of assault victims.

California already had fairly tough concealed-carry laws, now generally upheld. "In short, California's decision to place licensing in local hands is itself reasonable".

"An appeal to the Supreme Court is possible", said Chuck Michel, senior partner at Michel and Associates.

That ruling, which never took effect, would have bolstered the ranks of concealed weapon carriers in most Bay Area counties, where sheriffs have always been hesitant to issue permits for people to carry guns in public unless they can show that their lives are in danger. "It is imperative that we elect a president who will appoint Supreme Court Justices who respect the Second Amendment and law abiding citizens' right to self-defense".

Thursday's decision vacates a 2014 appeals court ruling in San Diego County in which gun rights advocates successfully challenged the sheriff's strict guidelines for issuing concealed weapon permits.

"The elected sheriff, he or she has to really determine what is best for the community", said Prieto. Instead, they'll just destroy the right to bear arms piecemeal: "they'll say that you have no right to open carry, you have no right to concealed carry, and you have no right to have guns in the home".

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, in a January 28, 2016, interview with The Sacramento Bee's Capitol Bureau, explains his policy on concealed weapons permits.

"I've been a cop 47 years, and I didn't start carrying a concealed weapon until I became sheriff", he said.

The New York-based gun control organization Everytown welcomed the decision as "a major victory for public safety".
