Sorry, Ammosexuals: Court Says No Right To Public Concealed Carry

Listen carefully and you'll hear wingers' heads explode everywhere.

In a ruling guaranteed to make the NRA spontaneously combust, the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that there is no guaranteed Constitutional right to carry concealed weapons.

By a vote of 7-4, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a California law that requires gun owners to show a good reason before they can get a license to carry a concealed handgun.

"The protection of the Second Amendment — whatever the scope of that protection may be — simply does not extend to the carrying of concealed firearms in public by members of the general public."

The court declined to say whether the Constitution protects openly carrying a gun in public. It said that question was not at issue in the case.

Cue the cries and whimpers of judicial activism by the gun nuts, but this is one for the people.
