In the continuing saga of California’s newest restriction on concealed carry, the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dissolved the lower court ruling making Newsom’s latest scheme once again unenforceable.
Newsom, Bonta, and the California gun control think tank trying to outlaw carry by proxy rather than outright isn’t a new tactic, but it is the only one with even the most remote chance of passing constitutional scrutiny in a post-Bruen legal landscape.
The 9th Circuit has taken the logical step of halting putting the injunction back in place as the case is decided.
We are witnessing the very quick changes and the legal whiplash that can occur. The pattern of regional courts siding with the sentiments of the region also remains steady. Deciding to upset regional sentiments as little as possible and make higher courts the heavy of the legal battle is normal.
