BREAKING: CA Court of Appeals: 2A Doesn’t Apply to AK Platform Rifles

California’s 4th District (Division 1) Court of Appeal just held that the Second Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic firearms like “AK” platform rifles. Click here to read the decision. “We construe Heller as standing for the proposition that the right secured by the Second Amendment is ‘not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose’ (Heller, supra, 554 U.S. at p. 626), but is instead the right to possess and carry weapons typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes such as hunting or self-defense . . . We agree with James that the ban on AK series rifles does not impinge on rights protected by the Second Amendment because assault weapons ‘are at least as dangerous and unusual as the short-barreled shotgun’ (James, supra, 174 Cal.App.4th at p. 677), which Miller concluded (with apparent approval from Heller) was outside the scope of the Second Amendment’s guarantee. (James, at pp. 674-675.)”

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Heller affirmed the right to possess and carry weapons typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes such as hunting or self-defense. I would expect the AR would fall in that category.

Wasn't it Harry Reid who once said laws can't be changed?  I believe he tried to sell that once. :pondering:

The U.S. Supreme Court rejects the majority of decisions by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California.

Here is a little snippit from a 2011 New York Times News story - "It was another bruising year for the liberal judges of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals as the Supreme Court overturned the majority of their decisions, at times sharply criticizing their legal reasoning.   Appeals from the nine Western states of the circuit dominated the high court's docket, as usual, supplying more than 30% of the 84 cases taken up by the justices during the term that ended last month.

This was a state court, not the 9th Circus.

Known as the 9th Circus Court of Appeals to those of us who respect and admire their work. :3:
