A federal judge overturned California’s arms embargo. State officials promised victory if the case was appealed, but gun lawyers were upheld by the rotating Supreme Court.
Friday’s ruling appeared in a 2019 court filing by James Miller, a California citizen, and the San Diego County Gun Owners, a political committee. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
In 1989, a three-minute gunshot wound killed five children in Stockton, Calif., An elementary school, injuring about 30 students and teachers. The shock and outrage led to the uprising of the first world power with assault weapons, signed by a Republican governor.
For more than three decades, it was a policy that promoted strict gun laws that fought for the entire country, and that gun rights activist fought fiercely to change. On Friday, a federal judge in San Diego ruled that the California ban was unconstitutional, a major escalation of the second amendment war when the Supreme Court was reorganized by Trump’s administration.
The lawsuit alleges that California is “one of the few countries in the country to ban many automatic weapons in the country because they have one or more common traits, such as gunshot wounds and sharpened barrels.” Other states that have been banned from attacking weapons include New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
A government arms embargo adopted in 1994, in line with California policies, expired ten years later, allowing the AR-15 to re-enter the U.S. gun market. Such weapons, commonly used in available ammunition magazines, have been linked to mass shootings across the country, including the killing of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla in 2018.
Judge Benitez wrote that the California ban, which has been revised several times over the years, violated the Second Amendment and described AR-15s as “standard, popular, modern,” not “snooker, drivers or firearms.”
“As the Swiss Army Knife, the famous AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home security equipment and state-of-the-art equipment,” the judge wrote, adding that the case was “about what should be a constitutional right and that the state should enforce a gun policy that affects that right. is 30 years old. ”
The judge and his style of writing were familiar with the lawyers of both sides of the dispute. In 2017, Judge Benitez passed a law passed by state voters that would restrict access to magazines containing more than 10 characters, a decision currently pending appeal before the Ninth Circuit. In that ruling, which briefly flooded California with the type of large magazines used last month in the San Jose railway shooting, the judge wrote that “the problem of mass shootings is very small.”
In another decision in 2020, Judge Benitez banned the ammunition law after the ammunition and wrote that in California, the “Second Amendment gets less respect” than Rodney Dangerfield.
The son of Cuban immigrants arrested at the beginning of Fidel Castro’s reign is accused of being American sympathizers, and Judge Benitez fled to the United States with his 10-year-old brother. Their mother followed, became a teacher, and raised them in Imperial County, a rural area in California. Judge Benitez went on to graduate from San Diego State University and now the Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
His supporters hailed him as “an American dream” in 2003 when President George W. Bush appointed him to the state bench, but the American Bar Association gave him an unusual rating of “ineligible,” holding his ten-month guarantee. 2004 marks Congress, A.B.A. Authorities called her “arrogant, arrogant, demeaning, tolerant, irritable, contemptuous, abusive, abusive, unnecessarily abusive and lacking in human skills.”

“It is not uncommon for this one state judge to be found, more or less clear, in almost every aspect of the California gun safety revolution,” said Ari Freilich, state policy director of the Giffords Law Center for the Prevention of Gun Violence.
The official number of firearms lawyers seeking to prosecute cases in the U.S. Supreme Court has changed dramatically over the past year, with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September and her replacement next month by Judge Amy Coney Barrett. As recently as last June, the court rejected ten more appeals in the case of the Second Amendment, indicating that the then-existing five-member judiciary was unsure of whether to get the vote of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.
Indeed, the Supreme Court has rejected challenges in-laws similar to those issued in Friday’s ruling in California. In 2015, for example, a court refused to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a Chicago law banning assault weapons.
In a controversy in 2015, Judge Clarence Thomas, joined by Judge Antonin Scalia, accused the court of relinquishing its constitutional right to retain and possess weapons. “An estimated five million Americans own AR guns,” writes Justice Thomas, referring to “modern sports guns.”
Among survivors of gun violence who are still upset by the California decision, however, controversies like this about the widespread popularity of guns made by the military are not disputed.
