… Another Victory for Gun Rights [#gun sales][#gun purchases]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 30th,2016

.. hopefully ..

.. this case centers on a case out of the 9th Circuit , that came out of a case that was originally dismissed in 2013 . The case revolved around an ordinance in Alameda County, California, which banned gun stores from being located within 500 feet of a residential zone. Three businessmen—John Teixeira, Steve Nobriga, and Gary Gamaz—argued the ordinance violated their Second Amendment rights when they were prevented from opening a gun store. They claimed that the ordinance was intended to keep legal gun dealers from operating in the county.

.. as I understand it , the way the ordinance was written basically would not allow any gun stores at all to be opened in Alameda County . When this happened , the 3 men [who wanted to open a gun store] sued . The district court dismissed the case . To say the least , a 3 – 0 ruling at the appeals level against the County was a shock ..

.. [h/t —]..

.. the case still has a long way to go . Alameda Cty could well appeal this to the full 9th Circuit , which has over 30 judges . It is also extremely liberal . It is also a question of whether the SCOTUS would even take up the case ..

.. but the first victory is at hand . Now , what will the County do ? How will the State of California react ?? ..
