Boland v. Bonta: Freedom Strikes Again!

"Californians have the constitutional right to acquire and use state-of-the-art handguns to protect themselves. They should not be forced to settle for decade-old models of handguns to ensure that they remain safe inside or outside the home. But unfortunately, the UHA’s CLI, MDM, and microstamping requirements do exactly that. Because enforcing those requirements implicates the plain text of the Second Amendment, and the government fails to point to any well-established historical analogues that are consistent with them, those requirements are unconstitutional and their enforcement must be preliminarily enjoined. Accordingly, Plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction is GRANTED."

Preliminary Injunction: full text 

Eat shit and die, Commie legislature!

The state has 14 days for appeals, after which this injunction is in full force.

If they go to the 9th Circus en banc, they'll lose again. If they do, SCOTUS won't even listen to further appeal.

The jackassical Califrutopia Handgun Roster is deader than canned tuna.

If you live elsewhere, and are contemplating a handgun purchase, you'd best move smartly.

The giant sucking sound is going to be the re-opening of 10% of the U.S. handgun market, and the avalanche of product returning to store shelves in the Land of the Banned. Expect firearms manufacturers' stocks to tick upward.

This is why you never give up and keep negative waves to a minimum.
I cannot lie, I do love some Drysdale/Koufax Dodgers and a dear uncle went to Cali and struck it richer than rich by hard work and determination back in the 1960's.
Upon returning from yachting around the world, he was shocked and dismayed by contemporary Los Angeles.
Celebrate any and all victories then prepare for the next attack.

SCOTUS was the enduring Trump victory.

anon 5:39: "Gerbil Holsters"

Thank you. I start my day with a laugh.

I've read that every day a preliminary injunction is in force, that injunction is akin to slowly setting concrete. In this case, I imagine it is akin to reinforced concrete as each of these rulings over the last decade further reinforce 2A.

Cue Bribem ranting about abolishing AR-15's as being "weapons of war".

I don't have a problem with decades old pistols. My P226 is still the best shooting handgun I've ever fired, and I've fired most all of them, It's a 1983 model.

@Anon 8:12P,
What you choose to shoot, freely, is entirely your business.
Telling you what you may or may not shoot is none of the fucking government's fucking business.
That's the difference.

Lots of Calif. 2A cases started with wins before the district court. Then the state appeals to the 9th Circuit and the Calif. anti-RTKBA law is upheld as perfectly A-OK.

Sadly, no reason to believe this is going to be any different even post-Bruen. 9th Circuit has clever judges who can differentiate all day long.

Nope. Update your browser.
The 9th Circus got packed by Trump. They're running from getting overturned by SCOTUS, and Benitez is on a roll.
The unconstitutional horseshit is falling like dominoes post-Bruen.
Gov. Gabbin' Nuisance is having major mangina cramps, and bitching and moaning about the death of unconstitutional gun control.
