Second Amendment groups are teaming up to take the Golden State to court over their Communist interpretation of Second Amendment rights. Under the California “Roster” scheme, “law-abiding Golden State citizens are prevented from buying and or self-building thousands of handgun models that are available anywhere else in the country.”
California ignores the Constitution
The latest gun control effort to hit the California legislature has Second Amendment supporting groups banding together to fight the challenge in court. That is, if laws are still in effect by the time it gets scheduled for a hearing. If accused criminal Joe Biden occupies the oval office then the Constitution will be history.
The Second Amendment Foundation joined forces with the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to file a lawsuit against the State of California to challenge their odious new “Roster laws.”
The Plaintiffs presenting the official challenge include “The Firearm Policy Coalition, San Diego County Gun Owners, and numerous business and individuals.” They name as Defendants “Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Luis Lopez, director of the state Department of Justice, Bureau of Firearms, in their official capacities.”
Second Amendment Foundation also filed a lawsuit against the State of New Jersey for their restrictive carry laws. In the heart of “mafia” territory, they “effectively prevent average law-abiding citizens from legally carrying loaded sidearms outside of their homes for personal protection.” California wants to do the same thing.

A legal leg to stand on
As long as the Constitution remains in force, a thing which is currently in serious doubt, established case law in a 2008 Supreme Court ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller gives clear instructions.
“Guns in common use for self-defense at any given time are protected by the Second Amendment.” California threw the law in the trash to say, “not here.”
The strategists for Firearm Policy Coalition argue, “In Heller, the U.S. Supreme Court provided a simple test: if an arm is bearable and in common use for lawful purposes, it is prima facie protected under the Second Amendment, period.” Unless the Second Amendment itself becomes just another couple squares of toilet paper. “The handguns California prevents law-abiding people from purchasing and making themselves are protected arms.”
It’s not surprising that what California is trying to restrict happens to be the very thing required to defend and protect the Constitution itself.
When Black Lives Matter comes peacefully up their walkway and into their living room demanding rightful reparations, the average Los Angeles citizen won’t have anything to defend themselves with except the cutlery on the kitchen counter.
