One of the most infuriating effects of the laws and regulations put into place by anti-2A zealots is how those affect law-abiding Americans who simply want to be able to protect themselves from criminals freed by George Soros-funded prosecutors and district attorneys (and other criminals, too).
We’ve said it before, and it’s still true (and will always be true): Gun control doesn’t save lives; it only makes law-abiding citizens less able to defend themselves.
And you don’t have to be a genius to see that this is true. Simply look at overall violence and murder statistics in areas with strict gun control versus areas without gun control. The areas without the strict gun control are safer to live in. No doubt about it.
Of course, there is the Constitutional side of the issue, too, which is vitally important. And for one state with strict gun control, a Federal court decided to give them some relief so that they don’t have to be at the mercy of criminals. Katabella Roberts writes,
A controversial California law that would ban licensed gun holders from carrying their firearms in multiple locations across the state was temporarily blocked by a federal judge on Dec. 20, meaning the legislation will not go into full effect as planned next year.Senate Bill 2 was part of a string of new gun restrictions introduced in California this year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen in June of 2022 that found a New York law requiring a license to carry a concealed weapon in public was unconstitutional and that carrying a pistol in public was a constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
Under California’s legislation, private citizens who hold concealed carry weapons permits would be prohibited from carrying concealed guns in 26 locations, including public parks and playgrounds, churches, banks, medical facilities, and any other privately owned commercial establishments that are open to the public.
In his decision to block the law Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney sided with the plaintiffs, writing that the law went too far and would “unconstitutionally deprive” concealed carry permit holders “of their constitutional right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.”
Furthermore, the California law “is sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court,” Judge Carney, an appointee of President George W. Bush, wrote.
Good for Judge Carney! It’s good to see that the people in California have at least a few people in the judiciary to prevent the would-be dictators in the state government in California from being able to trample the rights of people there even more than they already have.
Now, the people of California have to find ways to vote out of office people like California Governor Gavin Newsom and the radical political leftists there who are working hard to turn that state into a third world dictatorship.
Only by removing would-be dictators like Newsom from office will California begin to become more safe and free again.
