Federal court: No Second Amendment Guarantee For Concealed Carry

The Second Amendment's guarantee of a right to bear arms does not extend to the right to carry a concealed weapon in public, a federal appeals court in Denver has ruled.

"We conclude that the carrying of concealed firearms is not protected by the Second Amendment . . ." Justice Carlos Lucero wrote on behalf of a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Lucero cited case law dating to the 1800s that put restrictions on walking around in public with a gun.

"In light of our nation's extensive practice of restricting citizens' 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," he wrote in the ruling issued Friday.

Slavery was once deemed legal by the Supreme Court as well. Didn't make it right.

They seem to conveniently ignore these words: "...SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

They can't rule without consent.

"We beg no longer; we entreat no more; we petition no more. We defy them!" - William Jennings Bryan, 1896

The domestic enemies list continues to grow.

  1. Another federal judge in Illinois recently said that the 2nd amendment extends beyond our homes. They need to figure out which one they are going with. They directly contradict each other.

  2. Consider the source of the ruling: The 10th Circuit is based in Denver. Those loons are probably trying to get into the running with the 9th and the 6th for most overturned appeals court in the country.

    This too shall be overturned.

  3. Florida and Colorado have CC reciprocity. Either Gray Peterson didn't do his homework or this is another end around to remove the 2nd Amd.

  4. All these assholes masquerading as Americans and legal judiciary are out of order, they are required by law to only determine if a law complies with the constitution.. not make up some case law drivel.. another obamunist scumbag to add.

    Remember that you are not bound by illegal laws.

  5. The law cited is unconstitutional. An unconstitutional law cannot be used to justify an unconstitutional ruling. Both the 1800's law and this ruling are NULL and VOID.

  6. Case Law Does Not Trump The Constitution.

  7. Yet another failure of the Constitution. Time for folks to wake up and realize the Constitution gave us these judges and gave them the authority to ignore God's law.

    If the Founding Fathers had just kept the Articles of Confederation, as was planned, we would not have this problem of an expansive, all-powerful federal government.

    Stop "rah-rahing" the document and start the process to end its tyranny.
