Choices (or lack of in California)

WASHINGTON, D.C. –-( Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF) announced today the filing of an amicus, or “friend of the court,” brief in support of a petition for certiorari at the U.S. Supreme Court in Peña v. Horan, a federal Second Amendment lawsuit challenging the State of California’s Unsafe Handgun Act and “Roster” requirements. The brief can be viewed or downloaded at

FPC and FPF were joined in the brief by a coalition of Second Amendment advocacy organizations, including Madison Society Foundation (MSF), San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO), Commonwealth Second Amendment, Inc. (Comm2A), and California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees, Inc. (CAL-FFL).

The coalition brief argues that “through its ‘Unsafe Handgun Act’ and its handgun rostering requirements, the State of California has created an illusion of choice. In truth, the Handgun Roster has become a time capsule, where Californians in 2019 are forced to choose from a smaller and shrinking list of available, state-approved handgun models which pre-date the Roster’s ‘microstamping’ requirement.”

    In sort of the same vein, there was a story on another site this morning about Cali legislature passing over 1000 new laws last year taking affect this year.

      Those were all signed into law by Moonbeam, who occasionally vetoed bills. Newsom has quietly admitted that he plans to sign everything that lands on his desk.
