This is a direct attack against our Constitution.
The 9th Circuit US Court has just ruled in a 7-4 decision that American’s have no right to carry open and concealed firearms.
According to the majority statement, judges stated: “we can find no general right to carry arms into the public square for self-defense”.
The majority statement went on to say that regulating arms in the public square doesn’t infringe an individual’s right to defend his or her’s business or home.
People living in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, and Montana will be impacted by the Court’s ruling unless it gets oveturned in the Supreme Court.
BREAKING: The US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit just ruled that THERE IS NO RIGHT TO CARRY – either openly or concealed in public.
This ruling impacts RTC laws in AK, HI, CA, AZ, OR, WA, & MT.
This was not an NRA case but we are exploring all options to rectify this.

So how can we form a militia if we have “no right” to carry firearms openly?
Our Founding Fathers clearly supported the idea of law-abiding citizens carrying firearms openly.

The Washington Times covered the story and shared these details:
A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that there is no right to carry a gun in public.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in a 7-4 ruling rejected a challenge to Hawaii’s requirement that residents must pass an application to have weapons outside the home.
Hawaii’s law requires residents to show an urgency or need to carry a firearm, the applicant must have good character, and he or she must be “engaged in the protection of life and property.”
George Young applied twice for a firearm carry license, but was denied. He unsuccessfully sued Hawaii officials over the restrictions.
“There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment,” the court ruled in an “en banc” decision that involved 11 of the panel’s judges.
“The power of the government to regulate carrying arms in the public square does not infringe in any way on the right of an individual to defend his home or business,” the judges wrote.

So what the 9th Circuit is saying is that law-abiding American citizens can’t take their firearm to the supermarket to protect themselves… but a criminal, with no regard for the rule of law or for human life, can gun down your now defenseless family?https://t.co/vvKYrivONC

CNN got the scoop too:
A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled that states may restrict the open carrying of guns in public, a major ruling that is certain to be appealed to a US Supreme Court hostile to limits on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in a 7-4 ruling upheld Hawaii’s limits on openly carrying firearms in public, rejecting a challenge from Hawaii resident George Young, who had sued the state for denying his bid to carry a handgun outside the home.
“There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment,” Judge Jay Bybee, a nominee of George W. Bush, wrote in the majority opinion.
The White House is weighing whether to issue a number of gun safety measures through executive action even as they publicly press Congress to move ahead on legislation aimed at curbing violence.
A federal appeals court has ruled that states can restrict open carrying of guns, upholding a Hawaii county law that strictly limited permits for openly carrying firearms. https://t.co/PoZuq9Anz9
