Concealed carry in California

The Governor of California, who is grooming himself as a Democratic presidential candidate, is busy doing the woke thing. Some think he has a shot of replacing Biden as the Democratic Presidential candidate if Biden's bid goes sour between now and the Democratic convention. He made a move to clamp down on the 2nd Amendment rights of California citizens recently but ran into a roadblock. At least for now.
California court blocks concealed weapons ban. Jan. 7 (UPI) -- A California court has blocked a new law banning people from carrying firearms in most public places as a court case challenging the law continues.

The law, which went into effect January 1, prohibits people from carrying concealed firearms in more than two dozen places, including parks and playgrounds, churches, banks and zoos.The ban applies even if a person has a permit that allows them to carry a concealed weapon.

Critics said the ban would have violated the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Saturday's court ruling upholds a December 20 ruling that would have stopped it from taking effect.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has called himself a leader on gun control and claims that he will continue to push for stricter regulations.

"(t)his dangerous decision puts the lives of Californians on the line," Newsom's office said in a statement following Saturday's 9th circuit decision.

The California Rifle and Pistol Association, which had sued to block the law, responded to the 9th circuit's ruling by saying "the politicians' ploy to get around the Second Amendment has been stopped for now."

California isn't the only place, the WA governor Inslee spends most of his time kissing Newsom's ass and wants to
make the CA laws here in WA. This one took effect on Jan 1. ....... :roll: :roll:

"Beginning Jan 1st 2024, those wishing to buy a firearm in Washington will need to complete a background check and then wait 10 business days before they are allowed to complete the purchase.

The law also requires those wishing to purchase a firearm to take a safety training program within five years of purchasing it."

That's like allowing someone to buy a car and then take a driving test within 5 years. Where do these idiots get their ideas from??
