The joy and amazement Second Amendment supporters felt in July at two Ninth Circuit Appeals Court [Official website] opinions were dashed in August when, in Pena v. Lindley [PDF, text] the Ninth Circuit upheld California’s Unsafe Handgun Act banning purchase of new handguns that lack technology no current gun has and no manufacturer is contemplating. Although the two July opinions were modest and commonsensical, the Pena opinion blatantly defies the Supreme Court’s ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller [PDF, text] that there is a right to keep and bear those guns in common use for self-defense and other lawful purposes.
