A federal appeals court will hear arguments in October on the lawsuit that seeks to force the state to let residents carry concealed weapons right away.
The complaint is being pushed by gun rights supporters… including a crime victim who blames her attack on the state law that banned her from carrying a firearm. Even though the state enacted a concealed carry law last month, it will take months to put the permit process in place. The plaintiffs say that’s too long, and deprives gun owners of their rights.
A lower court already refused to order immediate implementation of the law, so the gun rights supporters appealed, leading to that October 3rd hearing.
