Kamala Harris Renews Attack On Self-Defense

If you follow concealed-carry jurisprudence, you’re likely familiar with California’s Peruta v. San Diego County (2014). Three appellate judges reviewed the case and decided (2-1) that San Diego’s “good cause” condition for granting permits violated the Second Amendment, and the county abandoned its defense of the provision.

In a perverse but unsurprising intrusion, state Attorney General Kamala Harris asked the 9th Circuit to rehear the case, but that petition was denied. A judge on the Court then requested a member-by-member vote to rehear the case en banc (by the whole bench, and which did succeed); Peruta was set aside in the interim, and barred from citation. Given the anti-gun majority on the 9th Circuit, it’s unlikely law-abiding Californians will be able to carry outside the home anytime soon. 

All the while, no doubt, AG Kamala Harris and those appellate judges will have their taxpayer-funded bodyguards handy.
