Happening Now: Supporters of a strict constitutionalist reading of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution are pleased with the following breaking news report.
“A federal judge in San Diego on Friday overturned California’s three-decade ban on assault weapons, saying it violates the Second Amendment,” according to Fox News.
“‘Under no level of heightened scrutiny can the law survive,’ U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez said before issuing a permanent injunction that takes effect in 30 days.
“Benitez argued the state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles bans firearms allowed in other states, depriving California gun owners of their rights. [emphasis added]
“He compared the AR-15 rifle to a Swiss Army knife, saying it’s ‘a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle.’…
“California Attorney General Rob Bonta said the state will appeal the ruling.
“California first restricted assault weapons in 1989, with multiple updates to the law since then.”
