FPC Files Opposition to California’s Motion to Save Gun Rationing Ban During Appeal

Gun News

SAN FRANCISCO (April 16, 2024) – In Firearms Policy Coalition’s (FPC) Nguyen v. Bonta lawsuit, a federal district judge recently struck down the “one-gun-per-month” law. Today, FPC announced that its lawyers have filed a brief opposing the State of California’s “emergency” motion to save the “one-gun-per-month” ban during the appeal. Unless a stay is issued by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the law cannot be enforced after April 27, 2024. The latest brief can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.

“California is one of only four states in the Nation that prohibits its law-abiding residents from purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period,” argues FPC’s brief. “In fact, only five states have ever imposed such a restriction in our Nation’s history and none did so before 1975. It should come as no surprise, then, that California cannot meet its burden of establishing that this modern outlier statute is ‘consistent with this Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.’”

“The permanent injunction we secured in our long-running lawsuit to end this unconstitutional ban should be allowed to take effect,” said FPC founder and President, Brandon Combs. “If the Second Amendment means anything in the Ninth Circuit, the Court should allow this injunction to stand during the appeal.”

“California’s one-gun-per-month law is blatantly unconstitutional and there is no reason for the Ninth Circuit to allow it to stand during the life of California’s appeal of our victory,” said FPC Action Foundation President Cody J. Wisniewski, counsel for FPC. “California’s one-gun-per-month law is doomed, there is no reason for the Ninth Circuit to leave it on life support.”
