Jun 5 - AR-15 Compared to a Swiss Army Knife By Federal Judge

"(CNN)In a ruling that compared the AR-15 to a Swiss Army knife, a federal judge overturned California's longtime ban on a*sault weapons on Friday, ruling it violates the Second Amendment's right to bear arms.

Assault weapons have been banned in California since 1989, according to the ruling. The law has been updated several times since it was originally passed.
According to the ruling by U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego, the a*sault weapons ban deprives Californians from owning a*sault-style weapons commonly allowed in other states. Benitez issued a permanent injunction Friday so the law cannot be enforced.

"Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment," Benitez said in the ruling. "Firearms deemed as 'assault weapons' are fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles."

AR-15 style weapons have been used in mass shootings

In his ruling, the judge also criticized the news media, writing, "One is to be forgiven if one is persuaded by news media and others that the nation is awash with murderous AR-15 a*sault rifles. The facts, however, do not support this hyperbole, and facts matter."

However, as CNN has previously reported, AR-15 style rifles have been the weapon of choice for numerous mass shooters, including in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, the Route 91 Harvest musical festival in Las Vegas, a massacre at a church in Texas, the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the high school in Parkland, Florida, and the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, among others.

Last year, Benitez ruled California's ban on high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. He also struck down the state's restriction on remote purchases of gun ammunition.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom criticized the ruling Friday, calling AR-15's a "weapon of war."

He said in a statement that the comparison made by the judge between a Swiss Army Knife and the AR-15 "completely undermines the credibility of this decision and is a slap in the face to the families who've lost loved ones to this weapon."
Newsom added: "We're not backing down from this f*ght, and we'll continue pushing for common sense gun laws that will save lives."

The ruling and injunction are stayed for 30 days, during which time the Attorney General may appeal and seek a stay from the Court of Appeals.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta said he will be appealing the ruling. "Today's decision is fundamentally flawed, and we will be appealing it," Bonta said in a news release.

"There is no sound basis in law, fact, or common sense for equating a*sault rifles with swiss army knives — especially on Gun Violence Awareness Day and after the recent shootings in our own California communities," his statement said."

The NRA doesn’t do sh*t and they don’t do sh*t for black people. There’s no advantage to anything. The NRA can cease to exist tonight and nothing would change. The right to bear arms is in the constitution not some NRA constitution.

NRA has a large influence in gun laws and also cases were 2A was at question.

Just because there is a 2a there are states that don't allow gun possession.

Any national gun law that allows honest people to protect themselves, im for it, within reason.

The NRA is a corrupt organization that doesn't care for gun rights when it come to black ppl.

The are more gun organizations you should learn about ..

I remember all those Philando Castile marches the NRA set up.

And when they hit the news circuit bringing attention and awareness to it.

How could I forget about that?!?

I swear y’all don’t research and just argue for fu*ks sake. The article is clearly showing how the second amendment can be violated. If no one says anything, it’ll continue. That’s why we have groups like the NRA.

A lot of sh*t would change without the NRA. You don’t realize the influence these people had/have.
From your local politician to the White House.

The group helped Otis McDonald, a black Chicago resident, successfully challenge that city’s handgun ban in the Supreme Court. It submitted amicus briefs on behalf of black Delaware residents challenging that state’s ban on guns in public housing. The NRA took up the cause of Shaneen Allen, a black Pennsylvanian who was arrested in New Jersey after she mistakenly believed her state’s concealed carry license allowed her to bring her gun across the Delaware River.
And you completely skipped over his point. A group doesn’t have to do anything directly for you. They’re keeping doors open that we’re sneaking through.

This is fake and taken completely out of context for dramatic effect.

OP you need use credible sources if you want to post news links here.

Everyone knows that CNN is the worlds largest and most egregious propaganda network. You know this too, yet you still posted it here? Why?
