Breaking: Federal Judge Rules Against Challenge to California’s Handgun Roster

The court concluded that the Roster doesn’t burden the Second Amendment because it found the Roster to be a presumptively lawful condition and qualification on the commercial sale of firearms.

CRPA will release further information about today’s decision and what it means for California gun owners soon.

The plaintiffs are appealing the misguided ruling and the CPRA and NRA will support the fight on appeal.
