Appeals court: No Second Amendment Right to Carry Concealed Firearms in Public

Washington Post: “In a split decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said that there ‘is no Second Amendment right for members of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public.’”

“The majority opinion, written by Judge William A. Fletcher, made a distinction between concealed carry and open carry, and did not try to answer whether the Second Amendment protects ‘some ability to carry firearms in public, such as open carry.'”

The case is likely to go to the Supreme Court.

“The Supreme Court in 2008 used a D.C. case to declare an individual right to bear arms, but it has not yet ruled on whether firearms regulations for carrying in public, such as those in San Diego and the District, are constitutional.”
