    'On July 24, the Court ruled the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment protects the right to carry a gun in public.A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment protects a right to openly carry a gun in public for self-defense, rejecting a claim by Hawaii officials that the right only applies to guns kept at home'.....“We do not take lightly the problem of gun violence,” Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain wrote in Tuesday’s ruling. “But, for better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense.”

    The winds are changing.

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Second Amendment protects the right to carry a gun openly in public for self-defense.

    A divided three-judge panel ruled in favor of gun owner George Young, who argued his constitutional rights had been violated when his application for a license to carry a handgun publicly was denied.

    “Once identified as an individual right focused on self-defense, the right to bear arms must guarantee some right to self-defense in public,” Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain wrote for the majority. “While the concealed carry of firearms categorically falls outside such protection, we are satisfied that the Second Amendment encompasses a right to carry a firearm openly in public for self-defense.”


    With its ruling, the San Francisco-based court, considered to be the country’s most liberal circuit court, reversed an earlier ruling from the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii, which sided with the state and county.


    The majority said its ruling does not affect a 2016 decision in which the court found the Second Amendment does not protect a person’s right to carry concealed firearms in public.


    Judge Richard Clifton dissented from Tuesday's ruling, and wrote that regulations such as those on the books in Hawaii and elsewhere that place limitations on public carry of firearms are “presumptively lawful” and “do not undercut the core of the Second Amendment.”


    Clifton predicted the Supreme Court “will find it appropriate at some point to revisit the reach of the Second Amendment and to speak more precisely to the limits on the authority of state and local governments to impose restrictions on carrying guns in public.”.....snip~

    Hawaii will ask the full court to re-hear and rule.
    If it dies, and overturn, the circuit courts will be split, making it more likely that the USSC will take the appeal.

    The anti-gun left can't win here.

    If Kennedy isn't replaced soon it won't amount to anything because SCOTUS won't take the appeal.
    They probably still won't take it

    I keep telling the Euro trash to include the Aussie trash that 2A is a unique American way of life, the trash wants to **** on our culture and our given right.......we do not need government permission or validation.

    The Constitution once again over rides all this emotional baggage and dogma that progs try to attach to it.

    Reiver, care to share your thoughts? The bird from Aussie, share your comment please but you both need to come to the conclusion that this very unique right is founded on solid wisdom.

    Good day for our citizens and a beautiful middle finger for all of the worlds progs.

    Stay classy Progs :)

    That's two rulings out of the Ninth Circuit our way! They even overturned California's magazine ban.... which more than one of the gun haters here claimed would never happen.

    The times they are a'changin'!

    Reactions to open carry:

    "He says some have heard feedback from customers who think open carry is not so much dangerous as it is intimidating or rude. 'It’s also very distracting,' Scruggs says. 'For example, if we’re sitting here having lunch right now and there’s a person sitting right over there with a Colt .45, I could not help but be looking over there the entire time.'

    "That phenomenon—fixation on the sight of a gun—is called 'weapon focus,' something psychologists and legal experts have observed for decades....

    "For weeks, though, the conspicuous presence of guns influenced every aspect of life in Burns and the surrounding community. School was closed for days. Public meetings were canceled due to safety concerns. Public officials even quit their jobs and moved away. All before a single shot was fired. Why? Because locals saw the open display of guns as something other than merely an exercise of Second Amendment rights. They saw a threat."

    Waving a Nazi flag around in public is not illegal either, but it is something that many people would understandably not appreciate.

    The solus you're looking for to avoid the vapors is called "Constitutional carry".

    The ninth circuit court of appeals did not overturn the magazine prohibition, they simply stayed the enforcement while the lawsuit against it is heard.

    Both this ruling, and the ruling pertaining to the enforcement of the magazine prohibition, will be overturned by the full court rehearing the matter.

    I wonder if this ruling will put a halt to Cali's total open carry ban. I hope so.

    Whether or not the public would appreciate such is irrelevant to the matter. It is the legal exercising of a constitutional right.

    From the 9th? Lightning struck someone.
    Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, a good Irish name, has a history of supporting the 2A amid a sea of infringing advocates.
