Rhode v Bonta challenges the Prop 63 rules on ammunition purchases.
Judge Roger Benitez has ruled background checks to purchase ammunition is unconstitutional. This is Judge Benitez’s final ruling and grants a permanent injunction against enforcing the ammunition background checks in Penal Code sections 30352 and 30370(a) through (e). The judge also enjoined enforcement of “anti-importation” provisions found in Penal Code sections 30312(a) and (b) and 30314(a).
The Judge did not issue a stay of his ruling pending appeal, so we will see if the case is appealed and whether the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals grants a stay.
