Court strikes California law restricting concealed weapons

Good news.  Let's hope this is followed by better news.

California must allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms in public, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday, striking down the core of the state's permit system for handguns.

In a 2-1 decision, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said San Diego County violates the Constitution's Second Amendment by requiring residents to show "good cause" - and not merely the desire to protect themselves - to obtain a concealed-weapons permit.
Yeah. "good cause".  If you're a conservative, then you have no "good cause" to own a weapon.
