California attorney general tries to overturn gun carry ruling in 9th Circuit

Just when you thought you might be able to get a CCW anywhere in California. Not to say I didn’t see this coming.

This comes just one week after San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said he would not seek en banc review and would start issuing permits based on self-defense once the appeals court decision was finalized.

Since Sheriff Gore did not ask for review, the only way for a hearing by a larger panel of justices in the 9th Circuit is if one asks to go en banc.

“Obviously, what this tells us is the folks that advocate civilian disarmament are upset about the opinion and want to throw everything they can at it to bottle up the 9th Circuit or get it overturned,” said Mr. Michel, whose firm, Michel and Associates, represented the plaintiffs in the Peruta case up to the appeals court level.

San Diego County Sheriff will not Seek En Banc review of CCW Ruling!

This will likely go on for a while longer, but Calgunlaws just posted a press release from San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore regarding the 3 judge panel who ruled that the right to bear arms applies to outside the home.  That should translate to a shall issue policy for concealed carry permits.

Judge Gore said he will not seek an En Banc review which basically means that he won’t request that it be reviewed by the entire 9th circuit court.

It’s good news and a step in the right direction certainly, but we still have a ways to go.
