GOP win in Alaska adds to party's US Senate sweep

November 13, 2014

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Republican Dan Sullivan won Alaska's U.S. Senate seat in a hotly contested race, beating a first-term incumbent as voter disapproval of President Barack Obama swept Democrats out of office and allowed the GOP to seize control of the Senate.

The Ninth Circuit Court of appeals have struck down California's unreasonable requirement to prove to the government officials the need to carry a concealed firearm in the state:


The infamously liberal Federal Ninth Circuit Court of appeals has struck down a California law practically banning people from carry a gun in public for self defense in the Peruta v. San Diego case. The decision struck down requirements of "need" or "cause" to carry a handgun in public based on violent threats to a person as unconstitutional. In other words, the State cannot restrict an individual from carrying a firearm because a government official doesn't think they face enough threats to justify doing so and affirms carrying a gun in public for self defense is in fact a protected right under the Second Amendment. The ruling based much of its decision on the prior Supreme Court ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller and makes clear that the right to "bear arms" is equal in definition to "carrying arms.


The court also slammed the door on any appeals of it's decision in this matter:


That ruling prompted California Attorney General Kamala Harris to issue an appeal. But according to a new ruling from the Court yesterday, that appeal is no longer valid, challenges to the original ruling can no longer be filed and the easing of restrictions on how concealed carry permits are issued in the state will stand, meaning bureaucrats will no longer decide who "needs" to carry a firearm.


Relaxed rules for carrying concealed guns in public may not be challenged by California state officials or advocacy groups, a federal appeals panel decided Wednesday.


State law allows county law enforcement agencies to set rules that limit permits for concealed guns. The 9th Circuit panel that ruled Wednesday decided on the same split vote in February that San Diego County's policy requiring law-abiding gun owners to show a specific need for protection violated the 2nd Amendment's guarantee of the right to bear arms.


This decision was best summed up by Joyce Malcolm:


“Bravo for the ninth circuit. A right to bear arms is no right at all if you need to demonstrate a need to carry that firearm which satisfies the police. The Supreme Court's landmark decisions in 2008 and 2010 confirming the individual right to keep and carry arms is finally being acknowledged in California," Malcom said in a statement.


We discussed California's decision to be a "may issue" state in our California Proving They are a Land of Fruits & Nuts article:


We just retrieved our crystal ball from its hallowed place on the mantle and gave it a good polish, so that we could foretell the future for the misguided and frenetic citizens of California. What our initial gaze told us about their society is that violent crime will increase and that the citizens will be perplexed by this result. When a criminal can steal a firearm and  be given a slap on the wrist is unbelievable, don't these miscreants understand that bullets leave nasty little holes and grievous wounds in people. And that a criminal that is willing to steal a deadly weapon has the intention of using one.


Clearly wisdom, strike that intelligence has gone out the window in this State as they are now in dangerous territory and are collectively registering in the idiot range. If you want to spend some time in California you may wish to invest in some body armor, as this decision practically legalizes theft and violent crime. The decriminalization of drugs is part and parcel to who these people are and we can assume that most of them were on drugs, drunk or high when they voted for such a misguided notion as to decriminalize the theft or firearms.


Well they will just have to live or die by the consequences and sadly it will be innocent victims that will die due to their misguided sense of social irresponsibility.


One interesting corollary to this insane outcome is that it is difficult to obtain a concealed carry permit in California as it is a "may issue" state which means they have to pass judgement on the value of your life, which is placed into the hands of others to decide your fate.


This means that many more people will just conceal, carry firearms in defiance of the law as they attempt to protect their lives against their fellow citizens. California will become more of a jungle than it already is, may they enjoy the hell they have created.


The ninth circuit has now made our concern moot and we can rest easier knowing that sanity has been applied against the State of California, and their citizens will in fact be graciously allowed to conceal carry a firearm for a right that "shall not be infringed." From Townhall.
