9th Circuit rules concealed carry not protected by 2nd Amendment

Gun Free ZoneOf course the 9th Circuit Court, aka the 9th Circus voted against concealed carry.

Here’s the problem, the 7th Circuit came to the opposite conclusion in Moore v. Madigan.

We have two Circuit Court decisions in conflict.

I think SCOTUS might have to get involved in this.

It seems likely we're going to have to find out how far we can trust Trump's justices on gun rights. Like the original poster, I don't trust Roberts. That puts us at 5-4... if no one else defects.

Philadelphia allows gun carry permits by email

Washington Free BeaconPhiladelphians will now be able to submit gun-carry permit applications over email after legal pressure forced the city to reverse a COVID-related shutdown that created a log jam for residents.

Second Amendment advocates filed lawsuits in state and federal courts after the city delayed applications far beyond the 45-day window required by state law. Spokesmen for Gun Owners of America, which filed the state lawsuit, and the Firearms Policy Coalition, which filed the federal challenge, said the city acted out of fear of losing in both cases. Adam Kraut, FPC's director of legal strategy, said the city likely doesn't want its case to move up the federal docket and risk setting a precedent that could affect how localities handle gun-carry applications. He said the legal landscape changed in the wake of the Supreme Court's November decision to grant emergency relief to churches and synagogues that challenged some of New York's COVID restrictions.

It's interesting that they chose to allow these by email rather than open up an office for in person applications. Are they that afraid of COVID? Liking their paid vacations while "working from home"? Planning to claim that your application was sitting in their spam folder?

Lawsuit filed to block Philadelphia's shutdown of carry permits

Free BeaconPhiladelphia is facing a new lawsuit over its decision to completely shutter its gun-carry permit process over COVID-19 concerns.

The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) filed a case in federal court accusing Philadelphia of infringing on residents' Second Amendment rights on Friday after the city closed its permit process for at least three weeks. The gun-rights group requested a temporary restraining order Monday that would require the city to open its process back up and provide remote application options to residents, but it was denied. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Nov. 30.

"We're hoping to have the court rule that the shutdown of the Gun Permit Unit amounts to a total destruction of individuals' right to bear arms outside of the home," Adam Kraut, director of legal strategy for FPC, told the Washington Free Beacon.

This is why I cannot support any government mandates for training, certification, safety education, or anything that requires government permission to purchase a gun.

No matter what the ostensible reason for the requirement, it will be abused, sooner or later, under one excuse or another, to shut down the ability for people to buy or carry guns.
