Gun Owners of America (GOA) and Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) Senior Vice President Erich Pratt released the following statement after California’s so-called “assault weapon” ban was struck down:
Gun owners are rejoicing as common sense prevails in the Golden State. On Friday, U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego struck down California’s unconstitutional ‘assault weapons’ ban in a scathing opinion. Gun owners are looking forward to more pro-gun decisions from the courts, as the Supreme Court is set to take up a case involving “may issue” permits. When Courts adhere to the Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms can be restored.
