Federal: Dangerous right-to-carry guns takes a step forward

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on 6/24 that Hawaii violated someone’s Second Amendment rights when they denied him a permit to have guns in public.

From Hawiaii News Now:

The panel ruled that Hawaii law violated the Second Amendment, saying, “The right to bear arms must guarantee some right to self-defense in public.”

From WJLA Washington, D.C.:

On both sides of the issue, advocates of the Second Amendment and gun control activists, said O’Scannlain’s decision will not be the final word. More likely, legal experts expect the Tuesday ruling will be challenged and overturned by a larger panel of judges on the traditionally liberal-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
