ANALYSIS/OPINION:

At long last, the usually buffoonish 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to uphold the Constitution (“Federal court deals gun-grabbers a blow in San Diego concealed-carry ruling,” Web, Feb. 13).

Until now the constitutional right to bear arms has too often been barred to all but law enforcement and gangsters. No longer will law-abiding citizens have to prove a specific threat to ruling-class bureaucrats to enjoy the right to self-defense that never should have been infringed.

Most likely the gun-phobic will appeal to the Supreme Court, but after the heroic Heller decision, they are likely to fail there as well. Historically, nothing drives down crime rates as much as abolishing gun restrictions — so now all Californians can look forward to lower crime rates in spite of their governor’s early criminal-release program.
