Second Amendment Win Against City of Los Angeles
Earlier this year, the Los Angeles City Council passed an ordinance that would force companies or individuals who want a contract with the City to disclose their affiliations with the NRA – even if that was as simple as being a member. This ordinance set a dangerous precedent of attempting to “out” NRA members, and we quickly saw other cities try to jump on board with the same discriminatory and unconstitutional tactics.
The United States District Court issued an order yesterday granting a preliminary injunction in the case of the National Rifle Association of America v. The city of Los Angeles – meaning that ordinance can’t be implemented. This is a huge win for both supporters of the First and Second Amendment!
The federal court saw through the City’s actions and ruled in favor of the NRA stating “[a]ll four Winter factors tip in favor of Plaintiffs. Based on the analysis above, we conclude Plaintiffs have met their burden in demonstrating a need for a preliminary injunction of the Ordinance. The plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction is therefore granted.” Or, in other words, it’s a solid case.
CRPA salutes the NRA in standing against unconstitutional attacks on all of our freedoms.
