California: Court rules in favor of Gavin Newsom’s law to ban firearms in public

A few days ago, a district court blocked the rule because it violated the Second Amendment.

Finally, the law promoted by Gavin Newsom to prohibit carrying firearms in most public places will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2024. An appeals court has accepted the appeal presented by the California government after the rule received a precautionary block a few days prior.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled in favor of the governor and against the organizations that defend the right to bear arms. Previously, Cormac Carney, judge of the United States District Court for the Central District of California, momentarily suspended the law arguing that it violated the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Newsom’s office posted on X (formerly Twitter) to celebrate the court ruling after it became public:

Before the ruling was announced, the governor of California said that his office would appeal Judge Carney's decision. "Defying common sense, this ruling calls California's data-driven gun safety efforts repugnant. What is repugnant is this ruling, which gives the green light to the proliferation of guns in our hospitals, libraries and playgrounds, spaces that should be safe for everyone," he said. This message was reiterated by California Attorney General Rob Bonta.
