Brady Center Statement on Ninth Circuit Decision on CA Gun Law

Statement from Jonathan Lowy, Director, Legal Action Project, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence

Washington, DC—Today in a 2-1 decision, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled San Diego County violates the Second Amendment in Peruta v. County of San Diego.

The following is a statement from Jonathan Lowy, Director, Legal Action Project, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence:

"Neither history or precedent supports this aberrant, split decision that concocts a dangerous right of people to carry hidden handguns in public places to people whom law enforcement has determined that they have no good cause or qualifications to do so. The parents of Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin, whose children were killed by licensed concealed-carry holders, could educate the Court about the real dangers posed by this legal error. We are hopeful that this mistake will be corrected by the entire Court."
