Ninth Circuit: Yolo County Carry License Policy is Unconstitutional (3/5/14)

This morning, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals entered judgment in our Richards v. Prieto 'right to bear' lawsuit that challenged Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto's policy as unconstitutional. In the memorandum, the Court concluded that "the district court in this case erred in denying Richard’s motion for summary judgment because the Yolo County policy impermissibly infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms in lawful self-defense."
We and Second Amendment Foundation will have more on this case later today.
