The Supreme Court will not intervene in a lower court's decision that the Second Amendment does not protect the right to carry a concealed weapon in public.

Gun rights advocates had asked the court to review a California law that gives local sheriffs power to require that those seeking concealed-carry permits show a particular need, such as a threat.

"Whether the Second Amendment secures an individual right to bear arms for self-defense outside the home" is the perhaps the "single most important unresolved Second Amendment question," said a brief filed by the California Rifle and Pistol Association Foundation.

Because California bans carrying weapons openly in public, the association said the state law can effectively prohibit carrying a gun in any manner outside the home.
