    Default Re: 9th Circuit rules that public carry is protected by the 2A

    This is a shocking ruling from this court, who typically gets EVERYTHING completely backwards.

    As with DC losing its may-issue case a few months back, it’s largely believed the remaining may-issue jurisdictions pressured DC into accepting their loss and becoming shall-issue.

    PERHAPS those same pressures will be brought to bear on the Aloha state and they’ll opt for becoming shall-issue rather than risk it for the entire country.

    As I said, I’m no lawyer, but that path wouldn’t surprise me. I believe that’s why DC is (thankfully) now shall-issue. Had they appealed and lost, all the other may-issue states would have been flipped to shall-issue pretty quickly.

    That’s my simplistic logic on this, anyway. Perhaps there’s good reason I’m a propeller head computer geek and not a lawyer."
    Very good points, never thought of it that way.

    The entire country is going to be open carry and all of the left arguments are going to be quashed once Kavanaugh is sitting on the Bench. A lawyer friend of mine said there are many cases being prepped, as we speak, to give the SCOTUS an oppotunity to hear them. He also said the law is on our side and the gross misrepresentation and underhanded activism in the courts is going to come to a screeching halt...

    And the Hearing Protection Act is going to pass within weeks of Trump taking office. Much as I'd like to believe it, I'll wait until I see it.

    Exactly. They backed themselves into a corner by reversing Peruta. now their options are to let this stand or declare the right doesn't apply outside the home. But I give it a fair chance that they will try to reverse this and come up with an explanation that a public carry scheme that never issues a permit is somehow a regulation, and not a destruction of the right.

    O'Scannlain is the one who authored Peruta. Very curious to see how these will all play out... and if the "plan" is to not appeal these wins to prevent SCOTUS precedent, if Thomas and the 9th Circus will be able to control themselves and not take this up Sua Sponte.

    When you obstruct, you only have so many moves, before you run out of options...I think the 9th has made their last move...everything else from here is going our way, which was the law to begin with.
