Judge affirms San Diego County gun permit system.

San Diego County's system of issuing permits for carrying concealed…

San Diego County’s system of issuing permits for carrying concealed weapons does not violate gun owners’ constitutional rights, despite recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions protecting the right to keep guns at home, a judge has ruled.

U.S. District Judge Irma Gonzalez ruled against gun owners and a gun ownership group who had sued the county, arguing its permitting standards were invalidated by the two recent high court decisions.

The county maintained the Supreme Court’s decision bestowed no right under the Second Amendment to carry a loaded concealed weapon in public.

Gonzalez said in her 17-page ruling, handed down Friday, that the county’s permit system helps satisfy its legitimate goal of promoting public safety and reducing the rate of gun crime.

    Fucking San Diego County. That is why I work here, but maintain a residence in another, more friendly 2A county where I have my permit from.

    Have there been any updates to this case? I find it incredible that they would be able to trample the 2nd amendment like that and get away with it!

    Clearly, San Diego and the illegal ‘decision’ (blind, utterly legally ignorant and emotionally prejudiced Judge Irma Gonzalez) must be challenged at a higher court, most likely to the Supreme Court of The United States, as the Federal Circuit Court for California and certain surrounding states is a radical leftist joke, being the most consistently overturned court due to flagrantly leftist bias in the Nation’s history.

    The National Rifle Association is likely the only organization with sufficient power to take on these outright communists, and after being a foreign member of the Academy of Sciences of both the Soviet Union — now Russian and China for nearly forty years, I am intimately familiar with communism up close and very personal. Even their scientists, when they come here on sponsored sabbatical, are shocked at how radically communist California is in all respects. The erroneously entitled “Democratic Party” is far more accurately the “Communist Party” of California and America. This is true obviously and consistently, if people will simply make the effort to study “The Communist Manifesto” and non-prejudicially study the actions of these Democratic/Communist politicians, judges, mob controlled labor unions, etc.

    California is in extreme financial trouble for exactly the same reasons that caused the collapse of the Soviet Union — long term control by communist ideology and corruption at all levels of government and so-called legal systems. This financial disaster can only get worse until such time as its communist ideology is reversed completely — which is not likely to happen anytime soon, therefore leading to progressively worsening of its financial system. No one needs to be anything more than marginally intelligent to see the now collapsing State of California.
