“Peruta is asking the courts to put that option back on the table in CA and everywhere else it has been denied, and basically make “shall issue” the law of the land.
If the court takes up this case, we’ll find out how its newest member will really rule on 2A issues. Ultimately, this could be the case that fills in some of the many gaps left by the Heller decision. If this passes, the urgency behind the national reciprocity act will ratchet down a bit more, because citizens in anti-gun states will finally be able to exercise their constitutional rights.”

On some of these, USA has grown up and become more cosmopolitan but on others pockets of “fundamentalists” (yes, just like Islam’s rude uncles…) carry on the fight to regress to ancient times when anyone could pick up a sharp stick or club and establish law. Fortunately SCOTUS is back to 5:4 modern:primitive so the wave of evil might be staved off for a while. I hope all the old timers take their pneumonia immunizations (I’m getting mine today.), eat right, and get exercise so they might live at least 3 more years.

I’m all for RTKBA, but concealed carry in Chicago or NYC or LA will not make the world a better place. It might make for a drop in purse-snatching but the road rage, murder, and manslaughter rates might skyrocket. We already have enough of that. Just imagine the next movie theatre massacre with an uncivil war breaking out. How are concealed carry people going to know who’s the bad guy in a shootout in the dark?
