e Second Amendment does not protect concealed weapons, so says a federal appeals court in California. Which ruled on Thursday that firearm owners have no constitutional right to carry a concealed gun in public if they face no specific danger. Reuters' Correspondent Alex Dubinsky.>> This could potentially be a big deal in the national debate over gun law if in fact down the road it gets appealed to the Supreme Court.

The case is probably not gonna to to the Supreme Court immediately according to at least one legal expert I spoke to. The ruling isn't really gonna change very much right now for people who have concealed weapons in California.

Whether it's someone who's been threatened or works in a risky occupation.
