Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rejects California’s Request to Reconsider Advertisement Ban in NRA-ILA Supported Case.

Gun Rights

Back in October, NRA secured a huge legal victory in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel of the court ruled that California’s ban on advertising firearm products “in a manner that … reasonably appears to be attractive to minors” likely violates the First Amendment and that the district court erred in denying our request for a preliminary injunction. The court found that it was obvious that California’s advertising ban was unconstitutional. But California couldn’t accept the obvious. It asked for the case to be reheard en banc, by an 11-judge panel.

Today the court overwhelmingly rejected that request. Not a single judge of the 29-member court even requested that the court take a vote on California’s petition to rehear the case.

Now, unless California wants to test its luck at the Supreme Court, the case will be remanded to the district court to enter the preliminary injunction.

We look forward to continuing the fight in this case for our members.
