9th Circuit Court Overturns San Diego Concealed Carry Rules

Well it looks like sanity may be returning to the “Golden State” as the 9th circuit court overturned San Diego county’s concealed carry rule that applicants must show “good cause” to obtain a concealed carry permit, and apparently now puts the burden on the sheriff to show cause why an applicant should be denied the right to carry and defend themselves.
Shortly after the ruling was handed down, Orange County announced that they will follow the guidelines, and process the applications without requiring the applicant to show “good cause”.
The San Diego county sheriff will not appeal the decision, which means that it’s up to the state attorney general, to carry the torch.
Makes me wonder if they’ll pursue it, as it seems to me that when the most liberal court in the land, rules in favor of the 2nd amendment they can’t really hope to win in the more conservative Supreme Court…
This could be the beginning of California becoming a “Shall Issue” state instead of the current “May issue” status they now hold
