Gun Owners of America Statement on Young v. Hawaii Case

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America’s Senior Vice President Erich Pratt released the following 9th District Court of Appeals decision on Young v. Hawaii:

The judges on the Ninth Circuit court are acting in a truly hypocritical fashion. While they themselves are protected by armed bailiffs, they have now effectively barred law-abiding citizens, in the Young case, from being able to carry openly. And in their previously-decided Peruta case, they barred the ability of law-abiding citizens to carry concealed without showing ‘need.’ So it’s the classic ‘guns for me, but not for thee’ double-standard. This despotic court has completely ignored the ‘shall not be infringed’ protection in the Second Amendment by denying decent citizens the right to bear arms.

Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a grassroots nonprofits dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
