11th Circuit Dismisses Church Carry Case

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit dismissed GCO’s church carry case, ruling that states are unlimited in their ability to single out religion for disparate treatment as long as the state does not burden a sincerely-held religious belief. The court also ruled there is no Second Amendment right to carry a firearm on private property against the owner’s wishes (a position that GCO never advanced in the first place). The court implicitly ruled that the Second Amendment applies outside the home, which is encouraging. GCO will consider further action in this case. A copy of the Court’s opinion can be found here.
