Attorney General appeals handgun restriction ruling

Sheriff Gore hadn't appealed; people fear gun proliferation

California Attorney General Kamala Harris today (February 27) asked the Ninth U.S. District Circuit of Appeals to review and reverse a decision February 13 in which a panel of the court ruled 2 to 1 that San Diego County's requirement that people show "good cause" in obtaining a weapons permit violated the Second Amendment.

San Diego sheriff Bill Gore did not challenge the decision, disturbing law-enforcement officials throughout the state who worried that concealed gun permits would proliferate.

Harris asked that the full 11-person court review the ruling. Harris is concerned that sheriffs throughout the state could be required to issue permits based simply on the applicants' wish to carry a gun for self-defense.

Who are these disturbed law-enforcement officials? They certainly don't live in my part of the state. Have a look at the map here, http://www.bonzerwolf.com/today/2012/8/10/california-residents-double-down-on-gun-purchases.html

CaptainObvious: Every time sensible gun control laws are proposed, gun sales shoot up (pun intended). One wonders why the NRA, the lapdog of the gun industry, bothers to oppose such legislative suggestions. Best, Don Bauder

Tim Bell: You sound like you should live under Florida's laws -- you can kill someone if you can convince a jury that you reasonably thought your life was in danger. Best, Don Bauder

Debra Kuzma: Scam or sensible caution? Best, Don Bauder

Eva Tho: The Second Amendment gives states the right to have militias. Best, Don Bauder

Absolutely incorrect, Don. No Constitutional scholar agrees with you, other than those like Barack Obama who see the Constitution as an outdated document that should be malleable to their desires today.

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." - The first part supports the second. It clearly says, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". The militia was, and still is, all able-bodied males aged 17 to 45. And "well-regulated" refers to the leadership of the militia, not one burdened by laws.

The Bill of Rights guarantees the rights of INDIVIDUALS. Not one word refers to any "collective" right. There was no such concept for the Founding fathers.

jnojr: "Well regulated militia" does not refer to Saturday night specials. Best, Don Bauder

March 3, 2014

No more than "freedom of the press" or "freedom of speech" refers to computers or printing presses.

March 4, 2014

jnojr: But you can make a cogent case that freedom of the press and freedom of speech apply to any method by which the message is delivered.

Obviously, you are a strict constructionist. Some Constitutional scholars agree with your interpretation. Others do not -- at all. Best, Don Bauder

March 4, 2014

Jim Jones Sr.: Can't agree. Gun restrictions are necessary. Best, Don Bauder

March 2, 2014

Steven Afghani: San Diego needs a new sheriff for a number of reasons. One of them is that he did not formally object to the panel's 2 to 1 decision. Best, Don Bauder

March 2, 2014

Steven Afghani: California may need a new AG, but not because she is making this wise move. Best, Don Bauder

March 2, 2014

Don, Re. response to Eva; You of all people should understand the function of a comma in the language. The Supreme Court does, in D.C Vs. Heller they ruled that the right to bear arms for self-defense was a Constitutional right and not connected to service in a militia.

March 2, 2014

CaptainObvious: You will get some disagreement on that assertion. Best, Don Bauder
