Bonta Issues Statement in Response to Court Decision Allowing Accused Abusers Access to Guns

Press Release

by CC News

OAKLAND — California Attorney General Rob Bonta Friday issued the following statement in response to a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit striking down a federal law that restricts an individual’s access to firearms when they are under a domestic violence restraining order:

“This is a dangerous decision, especially when we know that firearms are used to commit more than half of all intimate partner homicides in the United States,” said Attorney General Bonta. “Californians should know that restraining orders, including Domestic Violence Restraining Orders, still prohibit the possession of firearms. These orders are an essential tool that remain in effect and may be requested at any time. I urge Californians to utilize these life-saving tools.”

Governor Newsom on Fifth Circuit Court Ruling Allowing Domestic Violence Abusers to Possess Guns


SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the federal law that prohibits those with domestic violence restraining orders from possessing guns:

“Now, a federal appeals court has ruled domestic abusers have the right to carry firearms. Where is the line? Who’s next?

“Judge Cory Wilson, Judge James Ho, and Judge Edith Jones.

“These three zealots are hellbent on a deranged vision of guns for all, leaving government powerless to protect its people. This is what the ultra-conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court wants. It’s happening, and it’s happening right now.

“Wake up, America – this assault on our safety will only accelerate. This is serious – and it’s coming to California. We are probably only weeks away from another activist judge, Judge Roger Benitez, striking down California’s bans on assault weapons and large capacity magazines. California will continue to fight against these extremist judges to protect our residents’ right to be free from gun violence.”

There’s a difference between disagreeing with a court decision and hurling personal insults at federal judges. Yeah, that’s REAL professional behavior. Mr. Bonta and Mr. Newsom need to stick to matters that are actually within their realm.

Mr. Bonta also receives campaign contributions from George Soros like the greasy Gov.
