9th Circuit strikes down restrictive concealed-carry laws in California


Recommended Posts

Huge victory for 2nd Amendment advocates.

 

A person in California does not have to jump through hoops anymore to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He/she simply needs to state that they want to defend themselves, and show good moral character. Big surprise, coming from the liberal 9th Circuit.

I'm definitely on board with the 2nd amendment but in my mind the idea that you want to carry a concealed weapon says more about your moral character than anything that can be found in a background check. And I see no reason to ask permission. It's either legal or it's not.

This idea is in-line with the ideal of the 2nd Amendment, but I think there needs to be check-and-balances in this day and age.  Allowing everyone to carry anything is a recipe for disaster that would set us back to Old West times.

 

There are many points to ponder, when someone has to draw their legally-carried weapon for self-defense.  First and foremost is that we have given citizens power to Police us.  When these Officers arrive, will they be able to distinguish the good-guy from the bad?

 

That said, I'm still shocked at this ruling from the 9th Circus.  It's a step in the right direction, but I believe this is going to a higher court.
