Have you heard???
A landmark ruling was issued today in the Miller v. Becerra lawsuit regarding California’s egregious assault weapon ban. Judge Benitez issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of the law.
“This is an average case about average guns used in average ways for average purposes,” the ruling said. “One is to be forgiven if one is persuaded by news media and others that the nation is awash with murderous AR-15 assault rifles. The facts, however, do not support this hyperbole, and facts matter.”
Important note: the ruling included a 30-day stay to give Attorney General Rob Bonta the opportunity to appeal. This means we can’t go modifying our rifles just yet.
Plaintiffs James Miller, Wendy Hauffen, Ryan Peterson, Gunfighter Tactical, John Phillips, and Poway Weapons and Gear are all proud members of San Diego County Gun Owners.SDCGO itself is also a Plaintiff.
This could not have happened without the amazing team at Firearms Policy Coalition, and lawyers John Dillon with Dillon Law Group APC and George Lee with Seiler Epstein LLP. Read FPC’s announcement about the ruling here!
DONATE TODAY to Firearms Policy Coalition to thank them for this huge victory!
On a personal note, I am so proud to be a part of this case and am humbled that we have so many members who get to share in this victory. I can promise you that SDCGO will continue to work hard to restore and defend our Second Amendment rights. This is one major step, but not the last.
