A recent California legislation that prevents people from carrying firearms in the majority of public places was once again obstructed from taking effect as a court case contesting it continues.


On Saturday, a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel abolished a temporary hold on a lower court injunction which blocks the legislation.

In mid-December, a United States District judge temporarily blocked the California law that was supposed to go into effect on January 1st.

Then, on December 30th, a federal appeals court overturned the district judge’s decision, allowing the law to take effect on New Year’s Day while the legal battle raged on.

However, on Saturday, the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit lifted the stay and reinstated the district judge’s decision to halt the legislation.

The law, which was signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom in September, forbids people from carrying a concealed weapon in 26 locations, such as zoos, churches, playgrounds, and public parks.

Regardless of whether the person is in possession of a concealed weapon permit, the ban is in effect. Privately owned companies that post signs indicating that firearms are permitted on their property are one exception.

On Saturday evening, Daniel Villaseñor, who is a spokesperson for Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), made a statement regarding the law.
