Second Amendmentism allows arms to the un-threatened: 9th Circuit

U.S. Court of Appeals Judge  Diarmuid O'Scannlain, despite his charming name, is more druid than christian.  Or perhaps we should just recognize Second Amendmentism as a religion.  Only faith can explain why someone would believe there is a fundamental right for these men to be armed.  In Peruta v. San Diego County a divided Ninth Circuit panel, in an opinion by O'Scannlain, ruled 2 -1 in favor of these plaintiffs:
"Wishing to carry handguns for self-defense but unable to document specific threats against them, plaintiffs Edward Peruta, Michelle Laxson, James Dodd, Leslie Buncher, and Mark Cleary (collectively “the applicants”), all residents of San Diego County, were either denied concealed-carry licenses because they could not establish “good cause” or decided not to apply, confident that their mere desire to carry for self-defense would fall short of establishing “good cause” as the County defines it. An additional plaintiff, the California Rifle and Pistol Association Foundation, comprises many San Diego Country residents “in the same predicament as the individual Plaintiffs.” No plaintiff is otherwise barred under federal or state law from possessing firearms."
