    Here is some good news.

    When I read the part about the (e) check going down, I wet myself.

    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    This is a really BIG deal. People need to realize what is in this complaint:
    "WHEREFORE, the Plaintiffs requests that this Court:
    B. Issue a declaratory judgment and/or injunctive relief that California
    Penal Code § 12031(e) is unconstitutional."

    Pretty awesome stuff!

    Hope everyone that can throws some $$ over to CGF and SAF.

    The only down side of this is: It will prolly have to go to SCOTUS to be finally settled.

    This IS awesome. It's in the Northern District of CA though, and as CGF is aware, is a tough district to win second amendment cases. But as we know, CGF doesn't stop at district level decisions. I wish them luck, the 12031(e) challenge should be a piece of cake.

    Very cool. 12031(e) is low hanging fruit, nice to finally see some movement to get rid of this tyrannical law.

    The stars are lining up again...

    SAF rocks, too!

    A year ago, we talked about how funny it would be if UOC was banned and then 12031e was found unconstitutional. Well it seems those stars are finally lining up nicely! In the not too distant future we'll be telling folks to make darn sure the DON'T UOC!

    1 more incident to remind of many reasons to refuse a search. And to not answer most or unrelated questions from LEO.

    It will be an interesting case to keep an eye on.

    Regardless of the time it takes, fighting the fight is a good and necessary step. My hat is off to SAF and CGF for finally bringing it. Eliminating the completely useless and irritating bullet button is in line with "not one inch". And ending the wholly unconstitutional 12031e violations is necessary to protecting liberties fought and died for. This suit makes me really happy!

    Hey Coolusername,

    If officer Becker loses his qualified immunity and pays substantial punitive damages, we will witness a completely different LEO attitude towards people who are exercising their 2A rights. A judgement against Becker will be a shot heard 'round California.

    Trust me!
