SAN FRANCISCO Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris said Thursday that she would challenge a federal appeals court ruling that would require counties to give law-abiding residents permits to carry concealed guns.
Harris announcement followed a decision last week by San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, the named defendant in the case that triggered the ruling, not to appeal.
Unless overturned, the 2-1 ruling by a panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals would end a stringent restriction on carrying handguns in the states most populous counties. Most rural countries already allow permits if minimal requirements are met.
Local law enforcement must be able to use their discretion to determine who can carry a concealed weapon," Harris said. "I will do everything possible to restore law enforcement's authority to protect public safety, and so today am calling on the court to review and reverse its decision."
Chuck Michel, a lawyer for the gun owners who challenged the restrictions, said he would oppose the state's intervention. Michel said San Diego County had repeatedly asked Harris to intervene earlier, and she had refused. He said Harris, who faces reelection, would face the wrath of gun owners...

Like I said. If the full panel takes the appeal, they will overturn the previous ruling.
You mean the government is willing to use your money to fight to keep your rights from you? No way.
So you are quoting yourself?
My response, “So you are quoting yourself?” was intended for you, not where it was placed.
In California? Good luck with that.
I always wonder about names. Kamala reminds me of the word Impala, think that maybe she was conceived in the back seat of an Impala? To what tribe does she belong, as if I need to ask?
How does she have any standing to appeal on behalf of San Diego County?
It is about fitting into the Obama shadow government profile and hoping for a job offer.
Maybe. LOL! Just reiterating possibly. I must need more coffee.
Because the 9th Circuit applied the ban to CA law so it applies Statewide, not just SD. The Sheriffs in CA are, pursuant to CA, given the authority to make the permit decisions. If this were just a local ordinance, or something the Sheriff just “did”, then she wouldn’t. But all the Sheriff’s actions are derived from State statute.
Hope that helps.
And yet they also WON’T spend your money to protect your rights. I am shocked. /s
But she refused to participate in the case earlier:
“Chuck Michel...said he would oppose the state’s intervention. Michel said San Diego County had repeatedly asked Harris to intervene earlier, and she had refused.”
Looks like she made a calculated mistake.
Counties are agencies of the state, how can a county have a power that the state didn’t give it?
Federal courts need to stop making law.
Ohhhh so now the Alleged American Kamala decides it’s time for her to appeal something?
Isn’t it amazing that she said she didn’t have to do that with a duly passed Amendment to the California Constitution like Prop 8?
Amazing that the “Republican” party in California can’t make an issue of that....
Kamala was also the WWF “Ugandan Giant”.
Spot on. Selective enforcement destroys her credibility.
