People v. Yarbrough (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 17, 2008)

Sorry, my gun-loving friends. There's no right to carry a concealed weapon under Heller. At least in California.

This is not a surprise for anyone familiar with the Supreme Court's holding. The right to possess a gun in one's home for self-defense is a bit different from the right to possess a concealed weapon in public. But this is the first post-Heller appellate case in the California Court of Appeal to so hold. So I thought it was worth at least brief mention.

So, if you've got 'em, keep those weapons at home. Or out in the open.
