Court Rules There Is No Right To Carry A Concealed Weapon

• Business Insider
 The broad wording of the decision in Peterson v. Martinez creates a far-reaching national precedent against carrying a loaded handgun outside the home.

The case began on a narrow point – a challenge by a Washington State man against Colorado’s law to issue CHL permits (“Concealed Handgun License”) only to state residents. But the final ruling held, “In light of our nation’s extensive practice of restricting citizens’ freedom to carry firearms in a concealed manner, we hold that this activity does not fall within the scope of the Second Amendment’s protections.”

The 2nd Amendment says I have the right to keep and bear arms it doesn't say how I may bear them or not bear them, so if that is the case I can carry them any damned way I please, and the right to do so was given to me not by some politician or some king or a community organizer, but an unalienable right granted to me by my creator, to defend myself, my family, and my property.

Please show in the Second Amendment where one is proscribed from carrying a gun in any manner whatsoever.
