Judge overturns part of California 10-day waiting period law for gun owners
SACRAMENTO- A federal judge has just overturned a portion of a California state gun law that requires firearm owners to wait a 10-day period before buying an additional gun.
The U.S. District Judge ruled that the 10-day waiting period violated gun buyers who have already purchased a firearm's Second Amendment right. The judge ruled that customers should not have to wait after they have already passed background checks or have been authorized to carry weapons.
Under the new ruling, new gun buyers will still have to wait a ten day period for a background check.
Opponents are looking into the decision to determine if they will appeal.
