Comely California Attorney General Kamala Harris has just lost another 2A battle in California. The Eastern District Court has ruled that her request of a stay on Silvester v Harris – ditching the 10-day waiting period for handgun purchases for buyers who’ve already passed a background check – shall not be granted.

Harris can appeal. Yes, but – unless the California Department of Justice is unable to comply with the order, it will go forward. In 180 days, Californians who already own at least one registered firearm can be in and out of the store with their new gat in the same day.
The Peruta decision striking down the “just cause” provision for concealed carry applicants – a ruling upon which Kamala was denied standing to appeal – was a major win for Golden State gun rights. This is one more move in the right direction for California.
