Federal appeals court rules concealed weapons permits not covered by Second Amendment
DENVER — A federal appeals court has ruled that permits allowing people to carry concealed weapons are not protected by the Second Amendment.
The ruling by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was issued Friday in a case involving Washington state resident Gray Peterson.
A federal judge in 2011 tossed out Peterson's lawsuit filed against Denver and the state's Department of Public Safety. Peterson claims that being denied a concealed weapons permit because he was not a Colorado resident violated his Second Amendment rights to bear firearms.
"In light of our nation's extensive practice of restricting citizen's freedom to carry firearms in a concealed manner, we hold that this activity does not fall within the scope of the Second Amendment's protections," the judges ruled.
concealed or not worry me. The gun doesn't bother me its the mindset of the gun holder that's the problem I have.
When the only tool one has is a hammer all problems are solved as if they're a nail. I don't like that
