Bevin joins in filing Amicus brief in Supreme Court case
Peruta v. San Diego County is a 2nd Amendment case before the US Supreme Court.
By Woody Maglinger
Frankfort, KY - Gov. Matt Bevin has joined with 25 other states in filing an amicus brief in Peruta v. San Diego County, an important Second Amendment case challenging the constitutionality of a California law restricting citizens' rights to carry handguns outside their homes for self-defense.
The case questions the legality of California's restrictive concealed carry permit policy, which requires citizens to satisfy a number of conditions before obtaining a concealed carry license. Under the law, an applicant must show "good cause" to obtain a permit, and each county sheriff gets to create their own subjective definition of "good cause."
Also included in the amicus brief are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
"As states and individuals, we must stand united against arbitrary government overreach and this unconstitutional attack on the Second Amendment," said Gov. Bevin. "In America, our freedom and liberty have been purchased at a great price. We must do everything in our power to preserve them for the generations yet to come."
