Apparently, the Second Amendment doesn't apply…
According to an 11 judge panel in the 9th US Court of Appeals, the Second Amendment does not grant the right of the people to carry a concealed gun in public. They said that the law was never written in that manner, and that law enforcement officials alone should have the say of whether or not individuals can have a gun. The catch, is that you can only get one after you prove that you need a concealed carry gun for protection.
This decision was made on a 7-4 majority, with Judge Fletcher speaking for the winning majority: “We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public.”
Of course, this does nothing but eventually raise the question to the Supreme Court, concerning similar rules. And, if this is challenged, which we assume it will be, this will go to the highest court.
Yet another important reason why we must be ever so careful this election season. Because, no matter what they may say, there is an attack on the Second Amendment and its current interpretation.
Yet, we aren't sure what is left up to interpretation. After all, the Second Amendment says this: A Well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the Right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
The people are the militia. The people have a right to keep and bear arms. That right shall not be infringed. It's so simple, a caveman could understand it. It was written that way for a reason…Because it cannot be taken away. Period.
Sound Off Gun Carriers! What do you think about this nonsense? Do you think this will go to the Supreme Court? What do you think the outcome of it will be?
