Judge Blocks California’s ‘Repugnant’ Ban On Carrying Guns In Most Public Places

via CBS News

A federal judge has blocked a California law that sought to prohibit carrying guns in various public places, contending that it violated the Second Amendment and defied the Supreme Court.

The law, heavily restricting carrying in public even for permit holders, faced criticism from the judge for its impact on responsible gun owners.

Governor Gavin Newsom condemned the decision, while the California Rifle and Pistol Association lauded the ruling, emphasizing the importance of self-defense. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

“Although the government may have some valid safety concerns, legislation regulating [concealed carry] permitholders — the most responsible of law abiding citizens seeking to exercise their Second Amendment rights — seems an odd and misguided place to focus to address those safety concerns,” Carney said.

“They have been through a vigorous vetting and training process following their application to carry a concealed handgun,” he wrote.

“The challenged SB2 provisions unconstitutionally deprive this group of their constitutional right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.”

“Defying common sense, this ruling outrageously calls California’s data-backed gun safety efforts ‘repugnant,’” Newsom said.

“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.”

“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,” Chuck Michel, president of the CRPA said.

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

“We are all safer and criminals are deterred when law-abiding citizens can defend themselves,” Michel added.

The law would have banned carrying guns in numerous public spaces, prompting the State Attorney General to plan an appeal.
