Joe Biden has made it a major goal of his administration to clamp down on our 2nd Amendment. His administration is exploring new ways of limiting Americans’ access to firearms.
But he’s far behind socialist California, which seems to look for new ways to restrict residents’ gun rights. They had a law on the books denying young adults from exercising their rights.
But the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just hammered them.
From Fox News:
A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ruled that California’s ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons to adults under 21 is unconstitutional, a move gun-rights advocates hope will pave the way for similar rulings in other courts…
“America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army,” Judge Ryan Nelson wrote in the 2-1 ruling. “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.”
The 9th Circuit Court knocked down a California law that banned the sale of semi-auto firearms to people under 21.
The court ruled this limitation violated young adults’ Second Amendment rights. The deciding judge even evoked the acts of “heroism” performed by young patriots during the Revolution.
This ruling strikes a blow against California’s ongoing leftist agenda. In addition to pushing for strict gun control, the state has pursued other, radical priorities.
In addition to gun control, California has pushed for an open border and free abortions for non-citizens, just for starters.
But this ruling might have larger implications, beyond the once-Golden State. This decision might open doors for similar rulings in other courts.
This decision affects a California law, but will not directly overturn other laws in the rest of the country.
But it is possible other federal courts will look at this ruling and make similar decisions. After all, many other blue states have laws just as strict or unconstitutional.
- The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a California gun control law.
- The law banned the sale of semi-auto firearms to people under 21.
- The court ruled such a restriction violated the Second Amendment.
