In a truly shocking turn of events, a federal judge in California has ruled that the state’s decades-old assault weapon ban is unconstitutional in what amounts to a massive victory for the second amendment.

As Fox News reports:

“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.

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.”

The lawsuit filed by the San Diego County Gun Owners Political Action Committee, California Gun Rights Foundation, Second Amendment Foundation and Firearms Policy Coalition is among several by gun advocacy groups challenging California’s firearms laws, which are among the strictest in the nation.

California liberals were enraged by the ruling, as it effectively undid decades of their anti-gun activism:

The state has vowed to appeal the ruling to a higher court.

Assault rifle: There is no definition! Therefore, any politician can make any definition they want, put it on legislation restricting the Second Amendment, and justify it with ‘assault rifle’ An ‘assault rifle’ in 1776 was a muzzle loader! This is a smoke word to deny the use of ANY gun by Citizens of the USA!
AR-15 (“Assault Rifle”) is really the brand name, not ‘assault rifle’.

ArmaLite Rifle ! is what the AR stands for in AR-15

Hopefully the Covid shot will kill most of the Dems. The rest we will have to waste ammo on.

Hmm. Let’s see. My Crystal Ball has an instruction sheet, so I’ll be guided through the proper procedures to gaze into the infinite future. There we go! It’s percolating, and a mystic swirl of opaque vapor has appeared as advertised. Eeny-weenie-chili-beanie, the infinite spirits have awakened! What’s this I see? Five hundred news reporters have been assembled at a California neighborhood establishment. What are they saying? Some dude walked into a Neonatal Clinic brandishing an automatic weapon, and he emptied the clip into a crowd of successful-but-temporarily-inconvenienced-women who were impregnated by stinking, horny men who have no regard for the virtue of these competent, successful women, imposing their unhinged desires upon helpless females to satisfy their fleeting lust. 4000 women were killed (One woman lost 18 grandmothers in the Holocaust, in addition to 25 BFFs!) along with 20,000 unborn women (And a couple of guy babies..no big deal..) in the most tragic Gun Law Justifying Massacre in the history of Gun Law Justifying Massacres!!!! The reporters have revealed that this dude voted for Trump, and he drives a pickup with a Confederate flag mounted on the roof.

Oops, the warranty on my crystal ball just expired, along with the product. Back to Kmart!

Tens of thousands of Americans die in vehicles each year. Drug addictions are dropping like flies from overdoses. Thousands more die from diseases, cancer being one of many. It just seems amazing to me that all of these deadly activities are not the focus of our sainted liberals, who are vitally concerned about saving people from getting killed (Except unborn people…) with guns, which is a diminutive number compared to those I’ve mentioned. Also, since were about to witness the end of the earth as we know it, which is their prediction of a climate catastrophe, it seems rather futile to disarm Americans and repeal our Bill of Rights when we should be enjoying our final fleeting years.

Not humorous and clearly an anti-constitutional, draft dodging pitiful ass.

And you imagined globalist media was going to tell you the truth for the first time in the history of globalist media . . . . .

It can’t happen in California. Their gun laws are too strict. And everywhere else in the US, legal possession of an automatic weapon requires a stringent background check and a hefty annual license fee.

Pack and leave. California doesn’t need your tax dollars. Make the entire state a death valley with zero economy.
