The decision could make it easier to carry a concealed weapon in California. State law says anyone who wants concealed weapon permit must demonstrate "good moral character" and show "good cause." It was left to local governments to determine how the law should be enforced.

But in a case from San Diego County, the Ninth Circuit ruled 2 to 1, the “good cause” requirement infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms. If the ruling stands, anyone who wants a concealed weapon permit for self protection will no longer have to prove “good cause."
