Nguyen v. Bonta

Nguyen v. Bonta

United States District Court for the Southern District of California

Filed: December 18, 2020

Status: Active

California prohibits the average, peaceable person from purchasing more than one handgun, or semi-automatic centerfire rifle (or combination of the two), from a licensed dealer within a 30-day period. As a result, Californians are banned from acquiring more than one constitutionally protected arm in a thirty day period based on an arbitrarily defined time table.

On December 18, 2020, Second Amendment Foundation filed its complaint, along with numerous individuals who wish to purchase multiple arms within 30 days, several retailer plaintiffs who desire to be able to conduct those sales, and two other civil rights organizations. The complaint alleges that California’s “One Gun per Month” law violates the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and seeks declaratory and injunctive relief.
