Kamala Harris, the AG of the formerly great state of California, has filed an appeal on the recent CCW ruling. You might recall a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit ruled, by a 2-1 vote, that the “good cause” requirement of California’s concealed weapon permit law, was inconsistent with the Heller decision of SCOTUS and is therefore unconstitutional.
San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, against who the basic ruling was made, did NOT elect to appeal.
There has been a lot of speculation among gun forums on the net that Harris would be pressured by other states to NOT appeal as, if she does and loses, many other states will be hit with the same problem.
Ms. Harris is at least pretending that this is a public safety issue and that the arbitrary discretion to not issue a permit to pretty much anybody is necessary for law enforcement to be able to protect the public.
Her appeal will go to the full Ninth Circuit.
