SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In a victory for gun control advocates, a federal appeals court said Thursday people do not have a right to carry concealed weapons in public under the 2nd Amendment.
An 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said law enforcement officials can require applicants for a concealed weapons permit to show they are in immediate danger or have another good reason for a permit beyond self-defense. Associated Press
So let me get this right, you can have a permit if you can show you are in immediate danger but not strictly for self-defense. Would another term for protection from immediate danger be SELF-DEFENSE???? Wouldn’t it be great if we all knew the exact time and place we were going to be in immediate danger so we could file the appropriate California paperwork that would allow us to grace our body’s with a means of protection. Obviously that is not how life really happens.
This is why people need to have their God given and constitutional right to bear arms upheld in lawless states like California and others throughout the country. States like this and people with so little common sense breed victimhood and allow lawless perpetrators to feed on the helpless population. The criminals do not follow these laws so the citizenry must be allowed to protect themselves from attacks. We do have the right to defend ourselves at all times with the best tool for the job; a firearm. TALTAC
