9th Circuit Court Hears Two Second Amendment Cases

posted on June 20, 2015

An important step is being taken in California to determine the status of self-defense rights. A three-judge panel in Peruta v. County of San Diego determined that the state’s “good cause” requirement for issuing concealed-carry permits was unconstitutional, but the case was referred to the 9th Circuit court for an en banc hearing. Now the judges of the court have heard oral arguments for Peruta as well as Richards v. County of Yolo, another case pertaining to the “good cause” provision.

The finest Second Amendment attorneys are on the case, but prospects are uncertain given the court’s known anti-gun leanings.  Still, the fight continues in California, and will for some time to come.
