As expected, the Judge ruling that self defense in California is not as important as releasing criminals from jails and prisons was appointed to the bench by President Obama. His name is Judge André Birotte Jr. and here is his biography en.wikipedia.org/wiki/André_Birotte_Jr.
Beware if you hold church services, surf or go to work, you can be arrested. If you commit a crime you will be released after you are arrested—so you can commit more crimes. The nation/State of California is lawless—the cops protect the criminals and the innocents, per an Obama judges order, may not purchase weapons to protect themselves.
“A federal judge on Monday denied a request by gun-rights groups to prevent California from shutting down gun stores during the coronavirus crisis in a legal battle that could end up before the Supreme Court.
Second Amendment activists had filed a federal suit to block California localities from including gun stores in emergency shutdown orders related to the coronavirus. Judge André Birotte Jr. denied the request, ruling that Los Angeles County—where the case was filed—or any other jurisdiction could close gun stores to prevent the spread of the virus.
“The City’s and County’s stated objective—reducing the spread of COVID-19, a highly dangerous and infectious disease—undoubtedly constitutes an important government objective,” Birotte said in the ruling. “The closure of non-essential businesses, including firearms and ammunition retailers, reasonably fits the City’s and County’s stated objectives.”
Feel safe? Not in California.
