The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal has ruled: California's prohibition on semi-automatic weapons sales to those under 21 is unconstitutional. It’s a news story that will shock liberal heads. It’s time to make more popcorn!
A U.S. appeals court ruled Wednesday that California's ban on the sale of semi-automatic guns to persons who are under 21 years old is unlawful. In a ruling of 2-1, the appeals panel from the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that the law infringes on an amendment to the 2nd Amendment’s right to bear weapons, and the San Diego judge should have stopped what it described as “an almost total ban on semiautomatic centerfire rifles” for young adults. “America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army,” Judge Ryan Nelson wrote. “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.”
Something is happening in this area. What's happening is evident. Because of the recent appointment of new judges, the Ninth Circuit Court is now less of a spectacle and is becoming more of a court. The two judges who formed the majority were former President Donald Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell nominees.
The lawsuit was filed through The Firearms Policy Coalition. Its ultimate purpose is to end the age-based gun bans that are court-by-court, state-by-state decided. This is a common tactic used by the side that is cosplaying in front of the justices' homes. The impact of abolishing laws that are federally enforced cannot be overstated.
The decision's scope is limited only to the removal of the age limit for purchasing firearms. The Firearms Policy Coalition lawsuit also attempted to stop the state's requirements for the purchase of shotguns and rifles by those under 21 years of age who are not serving in law enforcement or the military. This law was enacted in 2018, following numerous mass shootings, such as the Parkland, Florida, incident. The court ruled to maintain this requirement, deeming it reasonable as a measure to increase public safety via “sensible firearm control.” The court also confirmed the California 2019 law that prohibits the sale of semiautomatic centerfire rifles to those who are not 21 years old.
In the midst of a frenzied crime scene across the state at the hands of those who don't care about gun laws or bans, law-abiding gun owners should file these lawsuits in order to fight a government that claims it will defend the state's “commonsense gun laws”–despite the fact that these laws have not served the goal of stopping mass killings. This is one reason that in ultra-progressive California, these laws are currently being removed.
The genius who invented these rules, state Senator Anthony Portantino, said that he would “remain committed to keeping deadly weapons out of the wrong hands. Student safety on our campuses is something we should all rally behind, and sensible gun control is part of that solution.” Portantino was so dedicated to this cause that he publicly supported the recall of Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon.
