Peruta Opinion Finds No Right to Carry Concealed Firearms
A full panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today used shameful sophistry and sleight of hand to effectively deny millions of Californians their constitutional right to bear firearms in public for self-defense. The ruling came in the long-running case of Peruta v. San Diego, which challenged California’s discretionary issuance of concealed carry permits, the only option Californians have to legally exercise this right. Ignoring that fact, the court held that concealed carry of firearms in public is not protected by the Second Amendment and that discretionary permitting for it therefore does not offend that provision.

Barack Obama Wants to Unilaterally Strip Your Gun Rights
It’s puzzling that the University of Chicago Law School permitted Barack Obama to lecture on constitutional law, as comments he made last week indicate that he would struggle to properly teach high school civics.

Hillary Clinton’s History of Support for Prohibitive Taxes on Firearms and Ammunition
Last Sunday, ABC This Week host, and former Clinton White House Communications Director, George Stephanopoulos questioned Hillary Clinton about her support for gun control.

Six Year Wait for Recovery of Seized Guns Ruled Unconstitutional
Law enforcement officers seize privately-owned firearms in a variety of situations.  The problem, as we’ve written about previously, is that once a gun has been seized, the police often refuse to restore it to its lawful owner, even when the owner hasn’t done anything wrong: he or she hasn’t been convicted of or even accused of committing any crime, isn’t disqualified from possessing or owning firearms, and the gun isn’t needed for a police investigation or as evidence.
