Gun Owner Groups Challenge New Carry Restrictions in California
Gun Owners of America (GOA) and the Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) teamed up with Gun Owners of California (GOC) to file suit challenging portions of SB 2, a bill that anti-gun Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law this week. This unconstitutional legislation was passed in response to the Bruen decision (which ended the state’s draconian “may-issue” policy). As signed by Newsom, California SB 2 will:
— Create vast, restricted “sensitive locations” where concealed carrying would be prohibited, including all private property unless expressly permitted by the owner;
— Require 16 hours of training;
— Significantly increase the costs associated with securing a permit.
This lawsuit challenging SB 2 was filed in the U.S. District Court (Central District South) in Calfornia. The action, entitled May et al v. Bonta specifically goes after the “sensitive locations” provision of the law. Several other anti-gun states have enacted similar unconstitutional legislation in response to the Bruen decision, and GOA and GOF are a part of litigation in several of these cases.
