San Diego Permit Requirements Upheld

I guess these restrictions are not falling like dominoes after all.

San Diego County's system of issuing permits for carrying concealed weapons does not violate gun owners' constitutional rights, despite recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions protecting the right to keep guns at home, a judge has ruled. 

U.S. District Judge Irma Gonzalez ruled against gun owners and a gun ownership group who had sued the county, arguing its permitting standards were invalidated by the two recent high court decisions.

Gonzalez said in her 17-page ruling, handed down Friday, that the county's permit system helps satisfy its legitimate goal of promoting public safety and reducing the rate of gun crime.

Under the county's permitting process, applicants seeking concealed weapons permits must prove that they are more likely than members of the general public to be placed in harm's way.
The battle wages on. What do you think?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Damn it. It is the California court system- what do you expect?

  2. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This put such a bounce in my step when I read about this. Gundoofs think they can take over due to the misguided dumbness of hack Judges on the Supreme Court.
