Are State permit "need" requirements unconstitutional ?
Is State (carry) Permit legislation, that requires an applicant to demonstrate "need", unconstitutional?
In reading the Second Amendment, I saw NO reference to "need", regarding the "right to bear arms". I read the Wikipedia 2nd Amendment page, which goes through pertinent case law, and so no reference to requirement(s) to demonstrate "need" there, either.
Rhode Island and California pull this, though California phrases it as requiring that an applicant demonstrate that "good cause" exists for the issuance.
Thus, I'm wondering if State Permit "need" requirements inherently violate the Second Amendment?
