California’s Useless Waiting Period Upheld By Clueless Court

posted on December 16, 2016

Once again, San Francisco’s Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals—the nation’s most overturned court—has rendered a decision against gun rights that defies all logic. This time, the court overturned a federal trial court ruling and upheld California’s waiting period to buy a firearm for people who already own a gun and have passed a background check.  

The Wall Street Journal reported the court ruled that even current gun owners with a permit to carry were subject to the state’s “cooling off” period. California has had a waiting period since 1923 to prevent impulsive purchases that could translate into violence; the court called the law “a reasonable safety precaution.” 

Such governmental nonsense as enforcing a “cooling off” period upon law-abiding citizens who already have a gun can only lead to one conclusion: Ninth Circuit jurists can find a reason to rule in favor of any restriction on Second Amendment rights, no matter how preposterous.
