Federal Judge Issues Preliminary Injuction Against CA handgun roster


Recommended Posts


March 20 (Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday blocked California from enforcing a state law requiring new semiautomatic handguns to have certain safety features, finding it violates the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney in Santa Anna, California is the latest in a line of decisions striking down state gun laws following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year expanding gun rights. The judge said it would not take effect for 14 days to give the state a chance to appeal.

Additionally, the injunction does not appear to remove the roster, it enjoins the state from requiring Loaded Chamber Indicators, Magazine Disconnects, or Micro-stamping for a handgun to be placed on the roster.


The separation of judicial, legislative, and executive power limits the court. Actions can be enjoined. Existence cannot be.


If, on the other hand, there was a law requiring the executive branch to destroy the roster and any record thereof, but the executive branch defied the law, the courts could issue a writ of mandamus, which is an order to any other government organization to obey the law. That's not the case here.

  • Molly B. changed the title to Federal Judge Issues Preliminary Injuction Against CA handgun roster

the original roster was like a CPSC act for drop tests and the like, since they -- CPSC were banned from testing firearms. 

So a roster may likely survive in some limited capacity, but the microstamping mandate was just handed a death blow by this judge as well as the concept of piling on requirements to see that no new firearms are allowed for sale.


Its a good ruling for us, solid and takes a few shots at the logic of the anti-gunners,
