Is there something I don’t understand here?
California seems to think it is above the law of the land, and above The Constitution of The United States of America.
According to reports, The 9th Circuit of Appeals has temporarily blocked the order sent down from a federal judge striking down California’s unconstitutional assault weapons ban.
What part of “shall not be infringed” do these people not get?
If California and other Liberals at large continue to ignore our most fundamental rights I fear that a time will come when we start to ignore their most fundamental rights.
Conservatives are going to get fed up sooner or later, and the fallout from that is going to be pretty substantial.
I think maybe we should start by NOT bailing out California the next time it goes bankrupt.
Take a look:

Fox News highlights the 9th circuit’s recent decision:
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocked a federal district court ruling that would have repealed California’s assault weapons ban.
In a Monday panel decision in Miller v. Bonta, the appellate court put the June 4 order from District Court Judge Roger Benitez old hold as the court awaits the outcome of another case. Benitez had ruled that the ban violated the Second Amendment.
“The district court’s June 4, 2021 order and judgment are stayed pending resolution of Rupp v. Bonta,” the court said. “The stay shall remain in effect until further order of this court.”

The Daily Wire reported on the federal judge’s initial ruling:
A federal judge in the Southern District of California ruled late on Friday that California’s controversial “assault weapons” ban is unconstitutional.
“This case is not about extraordinary weapons lying at the outer limits of Second Amendment protection,” Judge Roger T. Benitez wrote. “The banned ‘assault weapons’ are not bazookas, howitzers, or machineguns. Those arms are dangerous and solely useful for military purposes. Instead, the firearms deemed ‘assault weapons’ are fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles. This is an average case about average guns used in average ways for average purposes.”
“One is to be forgiven if one is persuaded by news media and others that the nation is awash with murderous AR-15 assault rifles. The facts, however, do not support this hyperbole, and facts matter,” Benitez continued. “Federal Bureau of Investigation murder statistics do not track assault rifles, but they do show that killing by knife attack is far more common than murder by any kind of rifle.
