(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Happening Now: In a major victory for proponents of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and gun rights, a U.S. appeals court just ruled that California’s ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons to adults under the age of 21 is unconstitutional.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Franciso ruled in a 2-1 split decision that the California law violates the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
The court ruled that a lower court judge sitting in San Diego should have blocked the law, which the appeals court called “an almost total ban on semiautomatic centerfire rifles” for young adults.
Writing for the appeals court, Judge Ryan Nelson stated, “America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army.”
Going further, Nelson added: “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.”
The challenge to the law was brought by The Firearms Policy Coalition. After the court of appeals decision was released, the coalition said the court’s decision made them optimistic that other age-based gun bans would now be overturned.
