Today, the Office of the Attorney General of the State of California issued a news release titled "Attorney General Kamala D. Harris Appeals Ninth Circuit Concealed Weapons Permit Ruling." You can view the State of California's proposed petition for rehearing en banc at this link. I use the word "proposed," because California has sought to intervene in the appeal, and its request to intevene must be granted before California will be entitled to seek rehearing en banc.

How does a member of the general public sneak a video recording device into a U.S. Supreme Court oral argument? Apparently C-SPAN and others who favor televising the U.S. Supreme Court have been unnecessarily overlooking the self-help remedy, as the YouTube user "SCOTUSpwned" has now posted several oral argument video clips, with that user's most-viewed video focusing on yesterday's protester disruption at the Court.
