LOS ANGELES - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling in Peruta v. County of San Diego:

"The devastating impact gun violence has on our communities underscores the need for common sense gun safety laws. The court's decision is a victory for public safety and sensible gun safety laws.  The ruling ensures that local law enforcement leaders have the tools they need to protect public safety by determining who can carry loaded, concealed weapons in our communities."

The case was argued before the court by California’s Solicitor General, Edward DuMont.
