PHOTO: California Says It’s ‘Privilege, Not Right’ to Carry Concealed Weapon



A photo is circulating online Wednesday showing California’s rules and restrictions for carrying a concealed weapon.

After a litany of items one is not allowed to do while concealing a weapon, the page reads, “Remember, it is a Privilege, not a right to carry a concealed weapon.”

Judging by the state of affairs in the Golden State, the legislators there are not very familiar with the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps they need a brief refresher on the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights, which reads:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

“[T]he right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” seems, at least to this reporter, to be a direct contradiction to the state of California’s assertion that carrying a concealed weapon is a “privilege.” At the very least, it seems that the state is infringing upon the right to keep and bear arms by making up bogus rules about what one can and cannot do with his own firearm. After all, the Second Amendment makes no stipulations about how, when, where or in what state of mind one may carry a weapon, concealed or otherwise.

Setting strict, arguably unconstitutional rules – which only hamper the ability of law-abiding citizens to carry weapons, considering that criminals simply disregard all rules – is called tyranny. It is tyranny that the people of California must reject.
