A new California law banning the carrying of guns in most public places has been temporarily blocked from taking effect.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dissolved a temporary hold on the law, which was issued by a different panel and had allowed the law to go into effect on January 1.

The decision keeps in place a ruling by a U.S. District Judge, who found the law to violate the Second Amendment. (Trending: U.S. State Passes Personal Pronoun Ban)

U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney wrote, “SB2’s coverage is sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court.”

It “turns nearly every public place in California into a ‘sensitive place,’ effectively abolishing the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding and exceptionally qualified citizens to be armed and to defend themselves in public,” he continued.

“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,” wrote the judge.

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

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

The law, signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, prohibits concealed carry in various public places, and while Newsom vows to continue pushing for stricter regulations, the president of the California Rifle and Pistol Association sees the decision as a halt to what they view as an infringement on Second Amendment rights.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office wrote, “this dangerous decision puts the lives of Californians on the line,” in a statement.

The president of the California Rifle and Pistol Association, said, “the politicians’ ploy to get around the Second Amendment has been stopped for now.”
