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.
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.
