Supreme Court rejects gun rights appeal

Washington Times. June 27th, 2017

Second Amendment advocates stung by the Supreme Court's decision not to take up a closely watched gun rights case vowed Monday to pursue litigation as long as it takes to get the justices to affirm the right to carry a firearm outside the home.

The court opted Monday not to hear Peruta v. California, letting stand a ruling from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld a California law requiring a gun owner to show "good cause" in order to get a permit to carry a concealed handgun in public. The state law left the authority to decide what constitutes "good cause" up to local authorities such as sheriffs or police chiefs.

Gun owner Edward Peruta, of San Diego County, brought the case after he sought to carry concealed firearms for self-defense but was denied a concealed carry license in 2009 because he was unable to show good cause.

While the justices did not offer a written explanation of their reasoning, Justice Clarence Thomas issued a strong rebuke of his colleagues' decision not to hear the case. .......

Everytown for Gun Safety considered this decision "a win for gun safety" - which of course totally ignores criminals who will carry regardless with impunity. The ridiculous "good reason" requirement so often quoted is typically an excuse for refusals, when ''good reason" is and should be simply one of an individual's innate right of self defense. As all too often "shall not be infringed" is being absolutely slaughtered.

4. The UN and commitments to it.

EVERY single dealing with the UN monster requires commitment to it's core principles, which thread naturally runs through every agenda. That is "General And Complete Disarmament".

It is a mistake to think this relates to disarming nations, because if you bother to check the Articles of the UN you will see articles 39 to 51 - particularly 50 & 51 where the UN allows (yes - "allows") it's member states to possess and use efficient means of self defense.

Interestingly our governments and police actively and increasingly deny us that exact and absolute right of efficient self defense. It is a necessary step for them to have exclusivity of control - and a step towards achieving commitments with the UN. Then using the "black dog logic" they torment and frustrate people at every opportunity.

They torment prequalified (licensed) people who abide by a system and use the "because that dog is black, then all dogs must be black." ie: "Criminals have guns, therefore those who have guns must be criminals". Stupid, but it works on the ignorant masses who are so dense they can't see that they are being manipulated.

All said and done it resolves to: "Good men need no laws, and bad men are not made better by them."
