Last month the SCOTUS declined to hear the Peruta v. San Diego case that we here in California have been patiently waiting to have it heard, adjudicated, and won. Afterall, we won that case once, only to see the unscrupulous Liberal gun grabbers do what they do best – lie, cheat and steal. They stole our victory by lieing about the facts and cheated by obtaining an illegal ‘en banc’ re-hearing the case that we won. It was illegal because it was requested by the State of California and they were not even a party in the suit. They were successful at getting our win overturned.
But lo, what happened today may be a saving grace for us. A similar case coming out of Washington, D.C. was won by the Second Amendment Foundation. This case is actually stronger than the Peruta becuase it directly goes after the concept of the law. It is called Wrenn v. District of Columbia.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, actually issued a Permanent Injunction against the enforcement of the law as it is in Washington, D.C. That makes the law moot that requires applicants for a CCW in the District, to provide a “Good Reason” why the King should grant them access to their God given right to carry a gun outside of their home. Their law is Unconstitutional, plain and simple.
Good Reason is essentially the same as our Good Cause requirement. Judge Griffith wrote in his ruling that “The good-reason law is necessarily a total ban on most D.C. residents’ right to carry a gun in the face of ordinary self-defense needs…”
Striking it down will affect us, in time. The problem now is that the District could decide to appeal it to the Supreme Court which will take time. They could also request an ‘en banc’ hearing, similar that unscrupulous Kamala Harris did to our victory. She was Attorney General for the State of California at the time. In any event, it will take a ruling by the SCOTUS to finally have an effect on us. That will be what makes California’s law Unconstitutional. It will take some time for the legal wrangling to take its course. But we’re getting there.
