    Perhaps this has already been posted (surprised if it wasn't)

    Federal court in Cali struck down the "good cause" restriction for California concealed carry.

    "In California, the only way that the typical, responsible, law-abiding citizen can carry a weapon in public for the lawful purpose of self-defense is with a concealed carry permit. And, in San Diego County, that option has been taken off the table," Justice Thomas O'Scannlain wrote in the 77-page majority opinion. -

    And...

    The appeals court on Thursday reinstated a lawsuit filed in 2009 by Edward Peruta, who challenged San Diego County's denial of a concealed weapons permit.

    The ruling on Thursday also disagreed with three other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to the one in California.

    The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings.
