    Actually, RunBabyRun won't have to move if things work out the way they have so far. Self defense was (just last month) ruled by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to be sufficient "good cause" for purposes of CCW issuance. This ruling isn't final yet as there are some procedural things that must be done first. However, unless something changes relatively soon, there will be some BIG changes in store for California, Hawaii, and US Territories that fall within the 9th Circuit. This is going to be a big deal soon... if it gets to the Supreme Court.
    Sadly, this case is being reheard, so everything is on pause once again. Those of us who advocate for legal concealed carry in CA are on pins and needles waiting for the new ruling.

    Sounds like moving to a different state might make your day...
    Believe me, my husband has mentioned it more than once! Hopefully this court ruling will rule in our favor and allow for those of us who choose to abide by the law to make our own choices about concealed carry.

    The 3 judge panel has not actually decided to re-hear the case, nor has the 9th Circuit decided to hear the case en banc. They're weighing 2 things: whether to allow the Attorney General to substitute as appellee and whether she has standing to request an en banc hearing, if they allow her to substitute. There is a stay in place, but that particular stay doesn't appear to also stay the case for purposes of allowing the circuit court to take the case en banc themselves. Responses are due on some motions within 21 days. There shouldn't be a long wait.

    In any event, this specific topic is best discussed on forums that have subject matter experts on this stuff, not here.

    I've had a CCW for 14 years and will carry as an RN (once I'm through school). Just because I know how to help save lives does not mean I have to lay my life down without a fight-

    I also vehemently respect others that choose not to carry, and see just as many people sleep soundly without a CCW as do with.
