A federal judge strikes down California's 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, declaring a major victory for gun rights advocates. In a ruling on Monday, U.S. District Judge Anthony Ishii ruled the waiting period does not make sense for people who already own a gun and have already passed a background check. The 10-day waiting period is supposed to deter impulsive acts of violence, but the judge says there's no evidence that the waiting period prevents violence by individuals who already own a firearm. The State Attorney General's Office is now reviewing the ruling.
