Gun control backers in California have been dealt a legal blow.

Background from the Los Angeles Daily News:

A divided federal appeals court has struck down California’s concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes.

Actress Elizabeth Perkins believes the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is in the pocket of the NRA:

The 9th Circuit is rarely accused of “leaning right.”

The court didn’t uphold the NRA, they upheld the 2nd Amendment, and rather surprisingly so in this case.
