2nd Amendment Alert: CA Gun Waiting Period Ruled Unconstitutional

PolitiChicks.comCalifornia gun owners, Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs along with the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation are celebrating a victory today with a decision handed down on August 25, 2014, by the Federal Eastern District Court of California.

According to CGF, Judge Anthony W. Ishii, who “…was appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton ruled that the 10-day waiting periods of Penal Code [sections 26815(a) and 27540(a) violate the Second Amendment as applied to members of certain classifications…and burdens the 2nd Amendment rights of the Plaintiffs.”

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

The Court’s decision will remove the obstruction for those who pass a background check, possess a California license to carry a handgun or who hold a DOJ issued “Certificate of Eligibility” and already possess at least one firearm registered with the state.

Combs, Executive Director of CGF said, “California gun owners are not second class citizens and the 2nd Amendment doesn’t protect second class rights….This decision is an important step towards restoring fundamental liberties in the Golden State….and provides a strong foundation from which other irrational and unconstitutional gun control laws will be challenged. We look forward to doing just that.”
