Ninth Circuit ruling favors 2A protection for gun sales

A panel of 3 judges on the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that:


“the right to purchase and sell firearms is part and parcel of the historically recognized right to keep and bear arms.”


This is from a lawsuit in California that challenged Alameda County's ordinance that prohibits gun stores from being located within 500 feet of a residential zone.

The Judges cited the Supreme Court:

“The right of law-abiding citizens to keep and to bear arms is not a ‘second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees that we have held to be incorporated into the Due Process Clause.’”


Well good.

The 9th is usually a little Left leaning, but I guess they decided not to argue with the Supreme Court.

But notwithstanding, maybe some spheres want to hope and wait for an "incident" that goes the wrong way so somebody can set-up a lawsuit.

It makes no sense that people on the left and the right are fighting to take away each other's rights. We should all be working to keep ALL of our rights and keep Government from creating division. This is a good sign that someone on the left leaning court put their foot down to preserve our 2nd Amendment.

Good for them.

This was a very timely decision as California democrats are currently trying to push several unprecedented pieces of legislation. They are so onerous and tyrannical that they are referring to the initiative as Gunpocalypse.

It appears this "left-leaning" court upheld the 2nd amendment right, as it should have, yet you have to include a "jab" at people hoping for an "incident"?

Whom hopes for such an incident?

Many of us Leftists exercise that right and would never hope for such an "incident", let alone sue someone for exercising that right.

It appears you are using this excellent decision to set-up a strawman argument.

It's a conspiracy forum.

And we all know courts and politicians never ever produce conspiracies.

So a "Leftist" court upholds our rights as individuals and it is a conspiracy?

It is much more logical to conclude that Leftists are not the anti-2nd boogeymen you lead people to believe.

But that contradicts the narrative you are trying to push, so I can see why you default to the lazy excuse of "conspiracy".

Except many leftists who are in power consistent sing the praises of confiscatory policies in other nations like Australia. By and large leftists ARE antigun.

Who cares about Australia? In the US we have a right and that right is being upheld by courts that many would consider "Leftist".

Many need to rethink what they have been told or taught about Leftists, unless they wish to perpetuate propaganda about the Left.

Don't be a tool of propaganda.

I may be wrong but I thought the city has already gotten rid of all the gun shops in the city.

Good for that as it's sorely needed. The Ninth Circuit court doesn't always hold a strong point for non leftists as they lean left. They had overturned the gay marriage ban in Idaho-which I'm happy for but many conservatives(of course not all) were not.

It could be a prelude to the Gunpocalypse.

This is like saying that because a few republicans were for marriage equality that we should assume that there's a hidden majority of republicans(or at least a significant minority) that are for it. We know that isn't true.

You may be pro gun rights. But most of the people left of the spectrum are NOT.

Edit:

I don't care what Australia thinks about American gun rights. They made their choice. But when the majority of American politicians on the LEFT sing the praises of a policy that is CONFISCATORY in another nation, it would behoove those of us who cherish our natural rights to listen and fight back.

Great thread again (as usual when they're law-based, X) and
bumped for effort AND content.
I also am amazed at the unanimous upholding of the 2nd by the
9th; which beforehand would have me pinching myself for
involuntarily entering some semi dream state Bizzaria.

And for California at large to roll over and all of a sudden do
this as a "culture" may be even more astounding if it catches on.
It's usually these judges der riguer to come up with some-
thing completely off the rails and stall the cases before the
Supremes (either local or Big) make a more or less sane decision.

Wait....they did something right for once?

Now I am wondering why.

Might need to examine how that Revelation ["All will be peace
and security, and then the right hook will flatten their @$$es"]
can be applied.
I nasally detect another Pacific Coast giant rodent traversing
the lumberyard with an Uzi; do you too?

Perhaps they did not want the case in question to go to the Supreme Court.

That would have made them look even more ridiculous.

They are probably expecting an onslaught of challenges next year after the California Gunpocalypse starts.

Dont trust it.

The Ninth CIRCUS is up to something.

May have something to do with them tying 2A rights into the due process clause.

Something is definitely not right.

Not sure. Hard to believe they simply did the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing, though!

Maybe that's it. I'd love to see a nice increase in gun sales, and a corresponding drop in crime rates!
