SAN FRANCISCO -- A divided federal appeals court on Thursday struck down California concealed-weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
The 2-1 ruling of a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said California counties were wrong to require law-abiding applicants to show "good cause" beyond self-defense to receive a concealed-weapons permit.
Great news. The requirement of needing to show "good cause" lets the police disqualify everyone but celebs, politicians, and rich people. John Stossel attempted to get a conceal carry permit in New York since he got death threats over the internet, but the NY police denied his application after making him wait for hours twice at the police station.
