In the Bill of Rights under the second amendment of the Constitution of the Unite States the right to bear arms comes with certain restrictions in the day in age we live in. The federal courts appeals in court that citizens do not have the right to carry concealed weapons in safety due to monetary self-defense. In other words a person wanting a gun permit must show they are in grave danger in order to get a gun permit. 11 judges of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has said that law enforcement can demand applicants for weapons being concealed to show they are in grave danger. This is a great accomplishment for anti-gun advocates across the nation.

In 2014 a smaller panel of judges ruled in a lawsuit case in favor of the concealed gun permits by a sheriff over the denial of a concealed weapons permit. Having to show good cause in order to get a permit is causing a lot of lawsuits in California, a state where almost everyone has one. The state regulations for gun permits expects people to reportedly show “good moral character”, take a training course for carry the gun, and good cause…i.e. the restraining order. That is going to be the big loophole that people will take advantage of in order to secure a permit.

The attorney for the residents of California argued that the Second Amendment right to bear arms for self-defense is enough, and asking for more is in violation of their Constitutional Rights. The officials of the court stay strong in saying that the defeat in the gun battle is not an option, as letting more people attain gun permits puts law enforcement in danger as well as the rest of the public. The side pro-guns are saying that stricter gun permit requirements are causing the crime rates to go up, but there is reportedly no proof of such findings.
