DC: Two California residents, along with two Second Amendment advocacy organizations, filed a petition with the Supreme Court to review the Ninth Circuit court’s decision to maintain the state’s 10-day waiting period laws on purchasing firearms.
Three years ago, Federal District Judge Anthony Ishii, a Clinton appointee, said the waiting period laws were unconstitutional.
However, in 2016 the U.S. Court of Appeals Ninth Circuit ruled that when a person legally carrying a concealed handgun purchases another firearm and passes a further background check, he must be “cooled off” for an additional 10 days prior to taking possession of a legal firearm.
The petition — written by Supreme Court and appellate Washington, D.C., attorney Erik. S. Jaffe — states that it “is no secret that various lower courts, and the Ninth Circuit especially, are engaged in systematic resistance to” the high court’s landmark Heller and McDonald decisions. more here
