Federal Judge Overturns California’s Unconstitutional Assault Weapons Ban Again
As Pelosi would say: “There’s no point in saying good morning because it certainly is not one.”
Well, it is a good morning for us. But for Elected officials in the People's Republic of California, let’s just say they are not too happy today.
A federal judge came in locked and loaded on Thursday when he overturned California’s 30-year prohibition on so-called assault weapons AGAIN, saying banning semi-automatic firearms violates the constitutional right to bear arms.
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego said that a handful of criminals cannot dictate the rules for millions of law-abiding Americans who carry firearms like AR-15 rifles for self-defense.
Oh, so you mean politicians cannot take away our constitutional rights because some criminals break the law? Wow, who would have guessed?
And if they really cared about criminals abusing the Second Amendment, they would go after handguns since that is the most common weapon used in shootings. But I think we all know what they really are trying to do here.
Benitez argued that the 1989 law creates “the extreme policy that a handful of criminals can dictate the conduct and infringe on the freedom of law-abiding citizens.” He added, “California’s answer to the criminal misuse of a few is to disarm its many good residents. That knee-jerk reaction is constitutionally untenable, just as it was 250 years ago,” he added.
Obviously, the Golden State will not bite the bullet on this one.
California Attorney General Rob Bonta already filed a notice of appeal immediately after arguing that the decision is “dangerous and misguided.”
Bonta prioritizes most of his day for efforts in trying to trans the kids. But we see he was able to pencil in some time to go after the Second Amendment yesterday.
“Weapons of war have no place on California’s streets,” Bonta said in a statement. “This has been state law in California for decades, and we will continue to fight for our authority to keep our citizens safe from firearms that cause mass casualties.”
Even if they were weapons of war, which they are not, do people not understand how many people's lives would have been saved when Hamas invaded Israel? It has nothing to do with “waging war” but everything to do with protecting yourself against evil people.
Bonta is what we call a “loose cannon.”
California’s assault weapons restrictions remain in effect until the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit can hear the state’s appeal, even though the judge said it is “unconstitutional.”
Benitez had previously declared the ban unconstitutional in 2021, but because of the Supreme Court’s 2022 New York case, the 9th Circuit vacated that ruling and later ordered the judge to reconsider the case.
John Dillon, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said, “The Court's decision is constitutionally sound and addresses the many inadequacies of the State's arguments and so-called justifications for this unconstitutional ban," Dillon said in a statement Thursday. He added, "We will continue to fight for our Plaintiffs' Second Amendment rights through any appeal until the State is forced to start respecting these rights."
This same judge also struck down California’s law banning the possession of large-capacity firearm magazines in Sept. And Newsolini had the nerve to say that Benitez was playing “politics.”
The lack of self-awareness is just revolting at this point.
We all know why the Second Amendment is important. And so do California Commies. That is why they loathe it so much.
But justice delayed is justice denied. The ban is still in effect. And likely will be unless SCOTUS eventually turns it down. And the fact that it took 30 years to even get this far is also a slap in the face. But for now, we will keep our powder dry.
