Cruising Facebook at 0 dark thirty, I saw this comment on the TTAG feed by Edward Peruta. Mr. Peruta was reacting to the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision to rehear his case – throwing out San Diego’s “shall [not] issue” permitting system – en banc. As our man Dan pointed out, the Court’s action doesn’t bode well for Mr. Peruta or Californians’ gun rights. Or maybe it does . . .
If Peruta goes to the Supreme Court, the whole “shall issue” system may be struck down. Or not. In any event, we must never forget that these pro-2A court cases depend on the morality and perspicacity of defendants seeking justice. As with Otis McDonald, Dick Heller and a few others, Edward Peruta is the best of us, fighting for our rights and the rights of all Americans. He is our Gun Hero of the Day.
