First and foremost, the Second Amendment says that the “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” I believe that the “and bear arms” part means the right to carry in public, and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals agreed in Moore v. Maidgan.
The Ninth Circuit came to the opposite conclusion, but keep in mind that the Ninth Circuit is the Captain Peter “Wrongway” Peachfuzz of the judiciary. If you want to know what the constitution really means when it comes to civil liberties, take any decision by the Ninth and do exactly the opposite.

I have heard it said that the Ninth is the most overturned circuit in the country. That the Ninth is in California should come as no surprise.—Joe]
