No Right To Concealed Carry!?

from Free North Carolina

Via Iver

A federal appeals court says 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 issued the ruling Thursday.

The panel says law enforcement officials can require applicants for a concealed weapons permit to show they are in immediate danger or otherwise have a good reason for a permit beyond self-defense.

It was bound to happen.  While the Supreme Court affirmed firearms ownership to be an individual right, it said so in the home.  There had to be a case further defining the terms.  Of course, in this post-Scalia court, the fear is that the eight Justices (or 9, with a progressive appointee) will deny you, me and every other law-abiding citizen their natural right!
Time will tell…
Speaking for myself, I believe weapon possession, ownership, and method-of-carry should be entirely up to the individual!  This solves the CCW vs. OC debate.  It is NOT the business of the State to decide what or how, or when or where I can so do!
And (while we’re at it) didn’t Miller (1939 – the case affirming the 1934 National Firearms Act – full auto, etc.) mention commonly-carried military, individually-operated arms are the purview of the Second Amendment?
I call this ‘the Stinger in the basement’ principle.

  1. Given the wording of – and the Founders’ intent for – the 2nd Amendment, it’s arguable that every anti-gun legislation ever passed is unConstitutional. But try getting THAT past a judge.

  2. Yes, Miller said, common use in the military was the standard.
    Some states if held to that would say, “Sure you can own it, but you have to keep it in a $3000 safe, disassembled and allow law enforcement 24/7 right to inspect. Carry it? BWAAHAHA!”

    They have to make sure the non-connected, insignificant people don’t get any ideas. Just shut up, pay your taxes and if needed for the public good, get in the boxcar!
