There is already a 10-day waiting period, and even that doesn’t do anything to prevent homicide. The only rationale for this is to stigmatize guns and gun owners and delay the inevitable normalization of bearing handguns long enough for their criminal friends to profit.
California has a lot of crazy gun laws, but this one might be among the most ridiculous. Several gun retailers are challenging a state law that prevents businesses from displaying advertisements depicting handguns, or even the words “Handguns for sale,” that can be seen from outside the store.
Though the 9th Circuit court rejected a motion to enjoin enforcement of the law while the case is pending, it did indicate that the plaintiffs are likely to prevail on their First Amendment claims. Let us hope that the court does not perform some legal gymnastics to alter that outcome, and that it renders its decision soon so as not to unduly delay justice to gun dealers.
