Federal Court Rules Against 2nd Amendment, Upholds 10-Day Waiting Period to Purchase Firearms in California

There’s no doubt that gun rights have been under assault in this country under Obama.

Democrats have been trying to make guns as impossible to acquire as they can the last 8 years.

And then people act surprised that gun sales are skyrocketing…

It looks like 2A supporters were just dealt another blow in the liberal wasteland of California.

From The Daily Caller:

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a California state law requiring a 10-day waiting period for the purchase of all firearms.

Judge Mary Schroeder, a President Jimmy Carter appointee, wrote the opinion for the three judge-panel. Chief Judge Sidney Thomas wrote an opinion concurring in the judgment.

The challenge to the California law was brought by a coalition of pro-Second Amendment groups who claim it infringes a constitutional right.

In upholding the law the court wrote:

Thus the waiting period, as applied to these Plaintiffs, and the safety storage precautions, as applied to the plaintiffs in Jackson, have a similar effect. Their purpose is to promote public safety. Their effect is to require individuals to stop and think before being able to use a firearm.

The State is required to show only that the regulation ‘promotes a substantial government interest that would be achieved less effectively absent the regulation.’ The State has established that there is a reasonable fit between important safety objectives and the application of the WPLs to Plaintiffs in this case. The waiting period provides time not only for a background check, but also for a cooling-off period to deter violence resulting from impulsive purchases of firearms. The State has met its burden.

Not ideal…

There are a few issues that Donald Trump is certain to make some movement on and the 2nd Amendment is one of them.

Help is on the way.

Hopefully, it’s not too late.
