CA Gun Law Overturned

A federal judge ruled that a California law requiring a background check for ammunition purchases violates the Second Amendment.

Four years ago, in 2016, California voters decided that they wanted to toughen firearm laws in the state to include background checks on any ammunition purchases.  The law didn’t kick in until July of 2019, triggering a lawsuit by the California Rifle and Pistol Association.  In the final ruling the Judge called the law onerous, convoluted, and constitutionally defective.  That same judge previously struck down California’s previous ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The National Rifle Association has sued California for requiring gun stores to close during the stay-at-home orders; continuing a long battle in the fight for gun rights.
