Anti-Second Amendment California Law Blocked for Second Time

A restrictive California statute that would have prohibited the carrying of firearms nearly everywhere in public, including churches and playgrounds, was struck down by a federal court.

On Saturday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision to halt the law’s implementation, which had been permitted to go into effect on December 30 by a previous panel of judges on the court.

The law would have imposed severe restrictions on carrying in public, including for those with permits.

The California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) initiated legal proceedings to halt the implementation of the law subsequent to its signing by Governor Gavin Newsom in September.

In April, the court is anticipated to hear comprehensive arguments on the law.

The legislation would have prohibited the carrying of firearms in private establishments, unless the establishment explicitly indicated on its sign that patrons were permitted to do so.

The Los Angeles Times reports that firearms would have been prohibited in the following locations: public gathering places, parking lots, parks and playgrounds, sports venues, casinos, hospitals and clinics, churches, and institutions.
