Federal Judge rules California's Assault Weapon ban unconstitutional

It seems that the Judge believes that the Constitution means what it says.  Pull quote:

Government is not free to impose its own new policy choices on American citizens where constitutional rights are concerned, California may certainly conceive of a policy that a modern rifle is dangerous in the hands of a criminal, and that therefore it is good public policy to keep modern rifles out of the hands of every citizen. The Second Amendment stands as a shield from government imposition of that policy.

 The ruling will take effect on July 4.  The Usual Suspects there say they will appeal.

I suspect the judge has been watching the news concerning places like Portland and realizes that assault weapons have a place.

This should never have been an issue in the first place.
