Federal judge shoots down another bad California gun law. It seems as if as fast as they pass these crazy gun laws in California, a judge shoots them down. The claim was the law promoted gun safety, but it actually stopped the sale of guns all together.
Another California law ruled illegal. U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney of the Central District of California, appointed in 2003 by then-President George W. Bush, kicked off the 22-page ruling with the unflinching statement that the Constitution’s Second Amendment “guarantees the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.”
“That right is so fundamental that to regulate conduct covered by the Second Amendment’s plain text, the government must show more thansecond a that the regulation promotes an important interest like reducing accidental discharges or solving crime,” Carney wrote, citing the Supreme Court’s 2022 Bruen decision. (Emphasis added.)
“The result of this is that when Californians today buy a handgun at a store, they are largely restricted to models from over sixteen years ago,” Carney wrote.
The judge didn’t add “you idiots” after each sentence of the ruling, but it comes through loud and clear.
