SAN DIEGO, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Do law-abiding Americans who want to carry a concealed firearm have to hide in the shadows? Who doesn't want to be able to protect their own life, or the beating heart of a beloved family member?
As seen in the recent Peruta v. San Diego case, the overreach of our personal freedom has far exceeded the legislature's hand.
The Ninth Circuit's 7-4 ruling in Peruta v. San Diego upheld California's broad restrictions on concealed-carry use in their entirety. Peruta's argument did not ask for permission showing "good cause," rather stating the Second Amendment provides an individual the right to bear arms, as found in the Supreme Court's 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller.
Why does our Second Amendment right stop once we leave our homes? What about people who are killed in public places? Is this not "good cause?" Not according to our current Sheriff.
Doctors want to ask their patients if they own a gun, public schools warn parents against allowing their kids to visit a friend's home if guns are present, and even magazines like Cosmopolitan tell their readers not to date gun owners.
Where does it end?
While the gun laws here in California (next to New York) are the most stringent, crime rates continue to spike. Since these laws are not adhered to by criminals, they only leave the innocent unarmed, waiting for police to arrive when it's already too late.
How can we prevent crimes like the Aurora movie theater shooting, or the San Bernardino tragedy last December, if the unstable have an intent to kill, and the clear minded, law-abiding person is defenseless?
Right now, Sheriff Bill Gore must approve someone to obtain their Concealed Carry Weapons permit, which only occurs for very rare and specific circumstances. For example, only 138 women within San Diego County's 3.1 million population are currently allowed to protect themselves through the issuance of a CCW.
Poway Weapons & Gear is now offering a CCW Course, Concealed American for not only those who are approved by the Sheriff, but to anyone who is interested in eventually being able to carry. For now, this class will allow for the right to carry in 30 states. If California law changes, Poway Weapons & Gear will guarantee the required follow-up training for a CCW in California with successful completion and passing of Concealed American.
Poway Weapons & Gear believes in everyone's right to survive. We will always encourage and support any lawful person who wants to pursue the training and knowledge necessary to protect themselves.
