The 10-day waiting period to buy a gun may change for some people. U.S. Federal Judge Anthony Ishii of Fresno is asking lawmakers to overturn those who already passed a background check and are licensed to carry.
The ruling is triggering some buzz here in the Central Valley. Gun buyers to get their thoughts on this possible change.
Under California Law, first time buyers and carry concealed weapons holders have to wait 10 days to pick up firearms after purchase. "We may no longer have to wait 10 days," said Barry Bauer of Herb Bauer Sporting Goods.
Judge Ishii is ruling the waiting period should no longer be state law.
The ruling is the result of gun owners and gun right groups arguing... the current gun law is unconstitutional. Barry Bauer of Herb Bauer Sporting Goods agrees. "There's no reason in repeating the process of owning another handgun for those people it's inappropriate," said Bauer.
Other gun owners also support the judge's ruling. "It's not going to stop the person from going down on the corner buying an illegal firearms," said Ronan Collins, who supports the new ruling.
"It should have been that way all along, why wait the information they need is very accessible," said Ines Flores, who supports the new ruling.Gun owners who have already passed extensive background checks say they want to be able to buy a gun and go.
"This holding back on the Second Amendment was against the Second Amendment because they didn't give us our weapon right there and then," said Flores. Ishii's ruling will now be decided on by state lawmakers.
