Gavin Newsom Furious After Federal Judge Blocks California Gun Law

via FOX 11 Los Angeles

A federal judge temporarily blocked a California law that aimed to ban carrying firearms in most public places, ruling it violates the Second Amendment.

The judge granted a preliminary injunction, criticizing the law for being “repugnant” to the Second Amendment and depriving people of self-defense.

The ruling was a win for the California Rifle and Pistol Association, which sued to block the law. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

“California progressive politicians refuse to accept the Supreme Court’s mandate from the Bruen case and are trying every creative ploy they can imagine to get around it,” California Rifle and Pistol Association’s president, Chuck Michel, said.

“The Court saw through the State’s gambit.”

Randy Kozuch, executive director of the National Rifle Association (NRA) said the ruling “once more reaffirms that Americans have a constitutional right to carry a firearm for self-defense, and that government cannot infringe upon this right.”

The law, signed by Governor Newsom, was set to go into effect on Jan. 1, effectively banning concealed guns in various places.

The NRA and CRPA welcomed the ruling, while Newsom criticized it, vowing to defend the law.

“This ruling outrageously calls California’s data-backed gun safety efforts ‘repugnant.’ What is repugnant is this ruling, which greenlights the proliferation of guns in our hospitals, libraries, and children’s playgrounds — spaces, which should be safe for all,” Gavin Newsom said.

He added that California will continue “fighting to defend our laws and to enshrine a Right to Safety in the Constitution. The lives of our kids depend on it.”

“This Second Amendment’s becoming a suicide pact, it feels like,” he said.

“California’s 37% lower gun death rate of the rest of the nation, and yet, with all that evidence, no one on the other side seems to give a d—.”
