Federal Court Issues Preliminary Injunction
Against Del Mar’s Attempt to Ban Gun Shows
On Monday, June 17, CRPA attorneys secured a major victory in the fight against Del Mar’s attempt from banning gun shows. Following oral arguments, federal district court judge Cathy Bencivengo issued an order granting Plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction, thereby prohibiting the Del Mar Fair Board from enforcing its recently enacted moratorium to stop gun shows which took effect January 1st of this year.
Although the judge declined to issue a decision on the merits at this time, the preliminary injunction means that gun show promoters may now request dates and hold shows while the case continues.
This is a huge first victory for those involved in the case including CRPA, Second Amendment Foundation, South Bay Rod and Gun Club and all of the individual plaintiffs. Of course, none of this would be possible without support from the NRA Institute for Legislative Action.
