A small victory, In California?? Yolo Co. conceal, carry gun policy is unconstitutional, appeals court says
Gun rights advocates are claiming victory after a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that Yolo County was wrong to deny concealed and carry permits.
In 2011, a district court upheld Yolo County's policy that anyone wanting a permit to carry a concealed handgun had to show "good cause." Now, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has ruled that policy unconstitutional, which follows a similar ruling in San Diego County.
