Two California counties were ruled to have violated their citizens’ Second Amendment rights by shutting down gun shops during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A Thursday ruling by a three-judge panel on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals determined orders by officials in Ventura and Los Angeles counties that deemed gun retailers “nonessential businesses” to be illegal, The Associated Press reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Officials in both counties won separate lawsuits in lower courts, with judges ruling that the shutdowns of such businesses reasonably fit within county officials’ emergency powers and served the public interest.


U.S. District Judge Andre Birotte Jr. wrote concerning the closure of gun retailers at the time, “The closure of non-essential businesses, including firearms and ammunition retailers, reasonably fits the City’s and County’s stated objectives of reducing the spread of this disease.”

Judge Lawrence VanDyke made reference to the Ventura County case stating, the Second Amendment “means nothing if the government can prohibit all persons from acquiring any firearm or ammunition. But that’s what happened in this case.”

National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action Director Michael Jean said, “This is an important decision. It ensures that California, or any state, cannot use a crisis to trample on the Constitutional rights of citizens.”
