HUGE WIN FOR THE SECOND AMENDMENT: Judge Deals Major Blow Against Gun Control In California

At the same time that Democrats are trying to push new forms of gun control, supporters of the Second Amendment just scored a massive win in blue California.

A judge ruled that the state’s ban on ‘assault weapons’ is unconstitutional.

He even expressed admiration for the AR-15.

NBC News reports:

Judge rules California’s ban on assault weapons unconstitutional

A federal judge on Friday struck down California’s ban on assault weapons as unconstitutional but left plenty of time for the state to file an appeal.

The state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court, the judge wrote.

Judge Roger T. Benitez, who has favored pro-gun groups in past rulings, described the AR-15 rifle, used in many of the nation’s deadliest mass shootings, as an ideal weapon.

“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” he wrote in Friday’s decision.

“Yet, the State of California makes it a crime to have an AR15 type rifle,” Benitez continued. “Therefore, this Court declares the California statutes to be unconstitutional.”

He praised the AR-15 as a rifle that should be formally protected by the law for its “militia readiness.”

This. Is. Huge.

The judge reportedly grew up in communist Cuba.

And this is the truth.

This is a major win for freedom.
