CA Gun Owners Continue Waiting Period Battle

posted on February 19, 2016

Despite a ruling back in 2014 that the state’s longstanding 10-day waiting period for the purchase of firearms was unconstitutional, California gun owners are still fighting the onerous process.

Attorney General Kamala Harris has kept wait requirements in place while the state appeals the ruling. At odds in a case now being heard in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is why gun owners who have already passed a background check—proving they are no threat to safety and legally eligible to make the purchase—must endure the 10-day wait before picking up their firearm.

According to the plaintiffs in the case, Californians who have passed background checks and who have been issued a state Certificate of Eligibility or a California License to Carry are being deprived of their Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights in being made to wait for each new purchase.
