California Gun Owners Catch A Break

California firearm owners caught a rare break last week. Eastern District Federal Judge Anthony Ishii ruled in favor of several individual and organizational plaintiffs when he struck down a 10-day waiting period buried in the penal code.

The resulting court order compels the unobstructed, undelayed release of firearms to buyers who pass a background check, and possess a valid CA license to carry a handgun—hardly a worrisome demographic.

“This is one more example of how our judicial branch brings balance to government in order to insure our liberty,” said Donald Kilmer, lead attorney in the suit. “I am elated that we were able to successfully vindicate the (Second Amendment) rights of our clients.”
