9th Circus rules 2nd Amendment doesn’t apply to concealed carry

Court infringes on “… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

In a 7 – 4 ruling issued Thursday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, firearm owners have no constitutional right to carry a concealed gun in public. The court  said officials need only grant permits to those with “good cause,” such as facing a specific danger.

The decision of the San Francisco based court — the most reversed court in the nation — is viewed as a victory by gun control advocates and sets a legal precedent in western states — Arizona among them. This decision by the full 9th Circuit reversed a 2 – 1 decision in 2014 by a 3-judge  panel of the appellate court that found California residents have an inherent right to a concealed weapon for self defense.

It was called the Second Amendment.

But Judge William Fletcher thinks differently. “We hold that the Second Amendment does not protect, in any degree, the carrying of concealed firearms by members of the general public,” Judge Fletcher wrote in the 52-page opinion. San Diego and Yolo counties’ interpretation of “good cause” is a focal point in this case. Both counties define “good cause” as requiring a particular need.

The en banc court (entire bench — signifying a particularly important issue) 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. Several residents who live in San Diego and Yolo Counties, sought to carry concealed firearms in public for self-defense, but 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. Those seeking the permits contend that San Diego and Yolo Counties’ published policies defining good cause violate their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

If you’re interested in time traveling to scrutinizing English law in 1299 when Edward I directed the  sheriffs of Safford and Shalop to prohibit anyone from “going armed within the realm without the king’s special licence,” this opinion is for you.

If you’d like to know why Juan Francisco Sanchez, an illegal alien deported five times, was able to secure a gun to murder Kate Steinle as she strolled on the San Francisco pier with her father, but her father couldn’t have defended himself and his daughter, ask the black robes in San Francisco — a sanctuary city.

The same sanctuary city is where illegal alien gang member Edwin Ramos shot and killed Tony Bologna 48, a father of four and two of his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16 in a case of mistaken identity  — as they were returning from a family barbecue. Ramos was identified as having murdered previously.

These two cases, among many, illustrate “good cause” for concealed carry. 

It’s called a fighting chance.

    O/T: this was posted yesterday at Frosty’s MCRC Briefs, kudos to Frosty for always keeping us informed.

    I found it amusing that the gop still tries to pretend they can fool us into believing they care what we want or will do anything other than give us election year lip service that they will do anything about it.

    we see regularly we elect them to do certain things, then they do the opposite because its what the lobbyist pay them to do.

    Immigration, trade and budgets are the obvious examples, the last thing we want is amnesty of any sort but Az’s Bruce Ash saw to it that amnesty resolution (Resolution in Support of Borders, Growth, Prosperity and Immigration Reform) was placed in the aug 2013 gop meeting.

    Even after cantor was booted, the gop STILL insist we must have amnesty for illegals and tells us we are horrible racist among other things for opposing it. their “autopsy” of the disastrous mitt romney debacle still tells us he lost because the gop didnt embrace illegal aliens and foreign workers over American Citizens enough.

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) has launched Platform gop, a new website where all Republicans can offer their input on what should be included in the Republican Party platform that will be written at the 2016 Republican National Convention this July, according to Chairman Reince Priebus. SEE Platform gop “With Platform gop, every Republican has an opportunity to share with our Platform Committee their views on the issues that are most important to them,” said Chairman Priebus. “Over the past three years, the RNC has already taken in feedback from over 500,000 individuals about the direction of our Party, and this website will allow us to hear even more. While Democrats are letting party insiders write their platform behind closed doors, Platform gop is proof of our Party’s philosophy of listening to the voice of the people and honoring the democratic process.”



    no idea why they put immigration under that category, they are probably trying to hide it, we know the gop doesnt want to hear deport illegals, build a wall and cut back vastly on legal immigration, choose America and Americans first over the cronies who bribe them to provide slave laborers to take jobs from American Citizens and vote democrat

    Erasing the Second Amendment, or in any way changing it, simply furthers the goal of the one-world government creeps.

    The powerful and secretive Bilderberg group has been meeting in Europe this week. They are the globalists.
    The identity of these elite from around the world is largely unknown, but it has been reported for years that they have huge influence over political agendas worldwide.
    Journalists trying to cover the meeting were only allowed to stand several blocks away from the meeting place, and some had their press credentials confiscated by the police.

    On another note,
    more good news from the District of Corruption—-

    The House has voted in favor of bailing out Puerto Rico from its debt. The Senate is said to be ready to sign on, also.
    It was recently reported that 1 in every 4 working persons in Puerto Rico works for a government agency.
    What’s in YOUR wallet?

    Meanwhile, last night, B.Insane Obama appeared on one of the late night shows. He was slo-jammin with host Jimmy Fallon and dissing Trump. What a disgrace. He’s a legend in his own mind.

      Let’s never lose sight of the fact that the ultimate goal of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well, is to confiscate firearms. In the meantime, ammo is more and more difficult to purchase. This is by design. It was a policy first instituted by Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security and former Arizona Governor, Janet Napolitano, who was committed to allowing floods of illegals into our state, and ultimately into our nation.

      These are not “immigrants” as we repeatedly hear, but uneducated and lawless criminals coming not for a better life or “out of love” as Jeb Bush declared (to the detriment of his presidential aspirations!), but riotous thugs who march with Mexican flags and spit or ours or set it on fire. They are drug traffickers many of whom become gang members once in the US. They are angry that Donald Trump wants to build a wall and bloody his supporters as we saw recently in San Jose. This is the reason I believe Trump will be elected president. He was not my first choice, but he’s the ONLY choice now.

      The RNC doesn’t mention his name on its website and I will never send the state or national GOP another dime in response. Jeff Flake, doing the bidding of McCain, who in turn does the bidding of internationalist billionaire and freedom hating George Soros, is looking for a brokered convention and hoping for an end to Trump’s candidacy. If that happens, the Republican Party is gone and the USA will follow. I pray for my kids and theirs that Jeff Flake, John McCain and their ilk are all defeated. Voting for these two AZ Senate frauds will hand us our country in shreds and our asses in our hands. Wise up, people. Time is short.

      • American Patriot says:

        I meant to add a plug for Dr. Kelli Ward who is running against John McCain. Through his PACs and connections, he is doing all he can to decimate her. Let’s turn the tables on the miserable excuse for a US Senator.

    Remember who:

    ….passed Trade Promotion Authority
    ….funded DAPA
    ….passed the Iran Deal.
    ….passed the Corker/Cardin amendment
    ….didn’t bother with a budget
    ….passed a $2+ trillion Omnibus spending package

    THIS is the gop in action, and they wonder at Trumps record vote counts and turnout.

    Paul Ryan is John McCain on the subject of ‘guns.
    Paul Ryan Would be “Boehner on Steroids” | Current Alerts

    The only people who will have guns if/when Obama and/or Hillary have their way are the ones protecting them, their families and their homes. Every gang member and street criminal roaming the streets in what’s becoming a lawless U.S. will always have guns.

    Also there’s this: You’re going back to work, Grandma!
    We just gave your retirement savings to Puerto Rico. Thank you Paul Ryan.

    San Francisco wants illegals to vote. The way this country is going, and going fast, the rest of the Democrat-run cities will do the same.

    We’re losing this country. I don’t want to say it’s lost. The ‘progressives’ know how and when to act on their agenda. This might be their last chance to remake America 100%.

    Vote and Vote Trump in November.

    And take a look at what astronut Mark Kelly (Mr. Gabby Giffords) and General David Petraeus are up to.
    And they’ve got other friends in high places joining them in their gun control efforts.


    Kelly and Giffords follow HIllary around the country.
    Would she chose him for a VP pick?
