Applicants were expected to show "good cause" and "moral character" before being issued such a permit, but the Court decided this was too narrow in scope. This decision flies in the face of this court's activist tendencies. "Good cause" and "moral character" tended to be used to mean "Not a right leaning citizen" considering this court's liberal biases.
So consider this another TRUE moral victory for supporters of our Bill of Rights and Constitutional Law. As I had previously said once before when SCOTUS ruled that the same sort of laws in Washington DC were unconstitutional in 2008, more such rulings would necessarily follow. Although it would seem that 3 other federal appeals courts have ruled differently in other jurisdiction. You know what that means - SCOTUS will have to step in again and set things right.
Sickening that lawsuits of this nature even need to be filed to start with, but thank God for good folk like Edward Peruta standing up for our rights and telling the State where they can shove it.

Well. I guess that's that then.
