California: Injunction blocking enforcement of 'sensitive places' law back in effect
Late Saturday night, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an order dissolving a prior order and reinstating a preliminary injunction that prevented the state of California from enforcing the expanded so-called "sensitive places" designated under SB 2, which were set to go into effect Jan. 1.
This means the injunction that was granted in late December preventing the state from enforcing the expanded sensitive places under SB 2 is back in effect, pending further court orders.
This is a huge win for gun owners as this litigation proceeds.
For background, Senate Bill 2, among other things, creates new subjective criteria for the issuance of carry permits to allow authorities to arbitrarily deny applicants, restricts permit holders by allowing them to carry only handguns registered to themselves, increases the requirements to apply for a permit, and increases “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless.
