From Yahoo a short time ago:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A divided federal appeals court has struck down California's concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes.
The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to California's.
The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings.
The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that law-abiding citizens can keep handguns in the home for self-defense purposes, but didn't address whether that right extends outside the home.

Here is the problem.This ruling should throw NY Gun laws on its ear because they require us to show good cause for a non restricted Concealed carry license also but IT WILL NOT BECAUSE THE STATE GOVT TAKES THIER TIME TO COMPLY.NY received a afirmative ruling at the federal level that forcing us to load 10 round mags with 7 rounds was arbitrary and is reversed but this law is still in force and we warn range members that if they are caught carrying 10 rounds they will be arrested and brought up on felony charges.Let us hope this is the begining of great things to come.

Wow, my experience with the 9th Circuit as a Federal LEO has always been less-than-positive, this is shocking to say the least...
