NRA sues California for shutting down gun stores during pandemic

Finally the good citizens of California have a champion to beat back the idiocy of the California local government when it comes to their Second Amendment Rights:

The National Rifle Association accused Governor Gavin Newsom in a lawsuit of taking away the right of Americans to access firearms by shutting gun stores during the coronavirus outbreak.

The nation’s leading gun-rights group filed the complaint Friday in Los Angeles federal court along with two individuals, retailer Gun World and three other firearms advocacy groups.

“The circumstances posed by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak are noteworthy, but do not excuse unlawful government infringements upon freedom,” the NRA said in the suit.

Firearm and ammunition retailers help Californians defend themselves, their loved ones and their property from potential dangers during the crisis, the group said.



This is absolutely true. Los Angeles already saw what happened when law and order broke down during the Rodney King riots. Police could not protect innocent citizens from the rioters and all they had to defend themselves were their guns. Now you have tons of people realizing that THEY have to be their last line of defense, and not depend on the cops, and what is the government doing? SHUTTING DOWN GUN STORES! Morons.

I really hope the NRA wins, the gun shops stay open and get filthy rich off of gun sales, and California suddenly discovers thousands and thousands of 2nd Amendment loving citizens….
