In an astonishing decision, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the state must allow citizens the right to carry our firearms in public. The ruling says that the right to bear arms doesn’t end at your front door.
“Which makes sense, because you don’t generally bear arms inside your home,” pointed out Morning Answer co-host Ben Shapiro.
“When do you guys strap on your armaments – when you go outside?” co-host Brian Whitman asked Ben and Elisha Krauss.
“If I could, I would, dude,” responded Ben. “This has actually become a concern for me. I have to walk home from my parents’ every Friday night for Sabbath. It’s like 10 o’clock at night…it’s about a mile and a half. I’m walking home with my wife and it has occurred to me that if we are accosted… I would like to be able to carry a gun…incase, God forbid, somebody comes up…”
Elisha added that Ben does a lot of speeches in Southern California and there are some “cray-cray” people out there so it would be a good idea for him to carry a firearm.
Brian Whitman jumped in and said that he felt that the difference between him and the “gun folks” like Ben and Elisha is that they have a fundamental view that society is more dangerous than he does.
Ben disagreed. “Actually, I think it’s more that you have an odd belief – a lot of folks on the left have an odd belief that the police…are going to magically show up within one second of something bad happening.”
