Federal Judge Halts California Legislation

A federal judge has issued a temporary block on a California law, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in September, that sought to prohibit the carrying of firearms in most public places. The ruling, handed down on Wednesday, determined that the law infringes upon the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and hampers individuals’ ability to protect themselves and their families.

Set to be enforced from January 1, the legislation would have restricted carrying concealed guns in 26 locations, including public parks, playgrounds, churches, banks, and zoos. The prohibition applied regardless of whether an individual possessed a concealed carry permit. An exception was granted for privately owned businesses displaying signage permitting firearm carry on their premises.

U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney granted a preliminary injunction, describing the law as “sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court.” This decision marks a triumph for the California Rifle and Pistol Association, which had filed a lawsuit to halt the implementation of the law. The measure aimed to overhaul the state’s concealed carry permit regulations in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen.

As of now, the California Attorney General’s Office has not provided an immediate comment on the judge’s ruling.
