Concealed carry, California and the 9th Circuit’s misrepresentation of the facts | Fox News

June 10, 2016

From Dr. John Lott writing on the recent 9th Circuit Court ruling there is no right to bear arms outside the home.  I always learn something from Dr. Lott.

Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 7-4 decision that Americans don’t have a right to carry concealed handguns for protection. Since California bans people from openly carrying guns, their decision amounted to prohibiting people from carrying guns at all (whether openly or concealed).It is clear that a judge’s political affiliation determines whether he thinks that people have a right to defend themselves.  Democratic judges are now moving to overturn recent Supreme Court decisions that struck down bans on guns.Last year, about 0.24 percent of adult Californians had a concealed handgun permit.  In the rest of the U.S., the rate was 24 times higher, for a rate of 5.8 percent.  In many parts of California, it is essentially impossible to get a permit.

    If this goes to SCOTUS it is likely to result in a 4-4 tie, sans an appointment to replace Scalia, letting the 9th cct ruling stand. How does that affect regions outside of the purview of 9th cct?
