    Assault Weapons Ban Overturned.

    Federal Judge Overturns California Assault Weapons Ban, Governor Slams 'Threat to Public Safety'
    Ross A. Lincoln 06/05/2021

    A federal judge has ruled that California's decade-old assault weapons ban is unconstitutional, calling it a "failed experiment." In response, California Governor Gavin Newsom called the decision "a direct threat to public safety and the lives of innocent Californians."

    But judge Roger T. Benitez of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California granted a 30-day stay so that California Attorney General Rob Bonta can appeal the ruling.

    Benitez, a 2001 George W. Bush appointee, said that portions of California's penal code pertaining to assault weapons are "hereby declared unconstitutional and shall be enjoined," according to the New York Times. He further stated that the case concerned "what should be a muscular constitutional right and whether a state can force a gun policy choice that impinges on that right with a 30-year-old failed experiment."

    "It should be an easy question and answer. Government is not free to impose its own new policy choices on American citizens where constitutional rights are concerned," Benitez added.

    Benitez didn't explain what he meant by "failed experiment." The second amendment to the U.S. Constitution states "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." No court case has yet reconciled "well regulated militia" with "shall not be infringed."

    "Overturning CA's assault weapon ban and comparing an AR-15 to a SWISS ARMY KNIFE is a disgusting slap in the face to those who have lost loved ones to gun violence," Newsom said in a statement Friday night. "This is a direct threat to public safety and innocent Californians. We won't stand for it."

    In a separate statement attributed to the Office of the Governor, Newsom said "We won't back down & we will fight for common sense gun law

    I think that the sale of *any size* for a dollar drinks at convenience stores is a slap in the face to the families of who have lost their lives to heart disease.

    The use of large knives on cooking shows is a slap in the face to the families of those who have lost their lives to stabbing violence.

    This is awesome! Dems are losing their minds!

    California Dems sound off after judge slams 32-year ban on 'assault' weapons as 'failed experiment' | Fox News

    The ruling states that there have been 25 mass shootings over the past approximately 40 years in California. Before AWCA, twice in a decade, an "assault" weapon was used in a mass shooting, Benitez wrote. On average, since AWCA, twice a decade, an "assault" weapon was used in a mass shooting.

    "How well has the California ban on assault weapons worked?" he said. "The assault weapon ban has had no effect. California’s experiment is a failure."

    Benitez, citing FBI statistics, said murder by knife occurs seven times more often than murder by rifle.

    Coming to reality... To most of us, California is a failure in its entirety. That fault line needs to just spit already and seperate them completely

    This decision will be appealed to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals where it will be overwhelmingly re-instated by that bunch of Constitution hating morons pretending as real judges.

    The original petitioners will have to then ask the US Supreme Court to hear the case. If they don't take the case (they don't take a lot), it stands again! The only good news here is, this clown court in the 9th circuit is the most overturned court in the country! By a very large margin, too!

    The question becomes, who is paying for this to be heard in these courts. California will use as much of their taxpayer's dollars as they need to defend it because it is not their money. Who is the original petitioner?
    Remember; The 2nd Amendment Protects the 1st!
