Interesting Court Ruling In California


Recommended Posts

Well lets see if it holds up California politicians will surely appeal this, they truly are one screwed up state. 

Here is a quote from the article:

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego ruled that the state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Under no level of heightened scrutiny can the law survive," Benitez said. He issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of the law but stayed it for 30 days to give state Attorney General Rob Bonta time to appeal.

Gov. Gavin Newsom condemned the decision, calling it “a direct threat to public safety and the lives of innocent Californians, period."

I've been following this.  The same judge ruled that the magazine capacity restrictions in CA were also unconstitutional.

The good things are in the meat of his rulings.  The circuit court that this will be appealed to issued a flawed two-step process to follow when applying scrutiny to the laws.  He shoots down their reasoning as demonstrates how this law runs afoul of it anyway.  They will inevitably overrule him, and this will be appealed to the SCOTUS.  I haven't read the entire 94-page judgement yet, but from what I've read about it, he's made this very difficult for the 9th circuit to make a ruling that will sustain an appeal to the SCOTUS.

Why do you care?

It's a federal judge's ruling which could migrate its way up to the Supreme Court. If/When the Supreme Court rules, it is the law of the land throughout the entire United States and effects all states in the union.  You need to think of and consider the bigger picture. It ain't just a California tbing

Agreed.

The laws in CA and NJ are made by people who live outside of our state, and these laws are very similar.  If it gets ruled unconstitutional in either state, it spells trouble for the other.
