There is an ongoing court case taking aim at Americans’ Second Amendment rights. Last week, in a 215-page ruling, the Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals said there is no right to keep and bear arms.

George Young challenged Hawaii’s prohibition against civilian “open carry” of a firearm outside of their home.


The case is a decade long as Young experienced in the infraction in 2011. Young sought permission from Hawaii to exercise his Second Amendment right, but was denied the ability to get a firearm because he “failed to identify the urgency or need to openly carry a firearm in public.”

Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, who was a member of the minority opinion, called the ruling “unprecedented as it is extreme.”
