For John, BLUF: This could, after a SCOTUS affirmation, impact Lowell. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Reuters, and the Reuters Staff, 24 July 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment protects the right to openly carry a gun in public for self-defense, rejecting a claim by Hawaii officials that the right only applies to guns kept at home.The Opinion can be found HERE.
The ruling by a three-judge panel on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, makes the San Francisco-based court the sixth U.S. circuit court to interpret the Second Amendment this way and could set the issue on a path toward the U.S. Supreme Court, which has not taken up a major gun rights case since 2010.
Basically, what this means is that if US Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) can have armed security, you are entitled to be your own armed security.
