AGs Speak Out Against Peruta Ruling

posted on June 13, 2016

Following the recent ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that California citizens do not have a right to carry a firearm outside the home, state attorneys general in Arkansas, Nevada and Alabama have spoken out against the ruling.

“The idea that a State can completely ban or unfairly restrict the right of a law-abiding citizen to carry a concealed weapon ignores the written text and history of the Second Amendment and is unconstitutional,” said Arkansas Attorney General Rutledge. Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt said, “I am disappointed that the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals today, in a deeply fractured opinion, refused to acknowledge what should be clear from the United States Supreme Court’s cases: that individuals have a Second Amendment right to carry a firearm outside their homes.” 

Meanwhile in Alabama, Attorney General Luther Strange expressed a similar opinion. "In effect the appeals court ruled that San Diego County can outlaw guns outside the home by declining to issue anyone a permit. This court's decision is a direct challenge to the Second Amendment and is unconstitutional,” Strange said.
