Yesterday a federal appeals court ruled that authorities have the right to force people to obtain permits, if they wish to carry concealed weapons in public. The 9th U.S. circuit court of appeals ruled in a 7-4 split decision that the 2nd amendment never protected the right to carry concealed weapons. While the extent of the second amendments protections when it comes to the individual have been heavily debated, most purists believe that any law banning their ability to posses. display, or carry concealed weapons is a violation of their constitutional rights.

The lawsuit was filed after residents of San Diego and Yolo counties were denied permits to carry concealed firearms for personal safety reasons. The reason for the denial? Failure to meet the good cause requirements. Good cause requirements are the arbitrary standards of power thirsty mongrels. The idea that someone else can regulate what is and is not good cause for someone else to carry a concealed handgun is just as ridiculous as the idea that permits will prevent anyone from continue to carry concealed weapons.

The reality is that a concealed firearms is just that, concealed. No one knows if their co worker has a gun in their desk. let alone the hundreds of strangers we share space with on any given day. The idea that another law is going to prevent people from committing crimes is ridiculous and only creates another class of criminal by turning those who concealed carry into criminals. After all good men don’t need laws and bad men will find a way around them.

From the appellate court document.

The en banc court affirmed the district courts’ judgments and held that there is no Second Amendment right for members of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public.

Appellants, who live in San Diego and Yolo Counties, sought to carry concealed firearms in public for self-defense, but alleged they were denied licenses to do so because they did not satisfy the good cause requirements in their counties. Under California law, an applicant for a license must show, among other things, “good cause” to carry a concealed firearm. California law authorizes county sheriffs to establish and publish policies defining good cause. Appellants contend that San Diego and Yolo Counties’ published policies defining good cause violate their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

The en banc court held that the history relevant to both the Second Amendment and its incorporation by the Fourteenth Amendment lead to the same conclusion: The right of a member of the general public to carry a concealed firearm in public is not, and never has been, protected by the Second Amendment. Therefore, because the Second Amendment does not protect in any degree the right to carry concealed firearms in public, any prohibition or restriction a state may choose to impose on concealed carry
