California Gun Shop Law Struck Down
A federal judge struck down a California law that prohibited gun shops from displaying gun related ads as a violation of the First Amendment.
Judge Troy Nunley’s reasoning was that the state of California failed to prove it prevented suicides or crime. The law dates back to 1923 and prohibited ads that were visible from outside the store.
Judge Troy Nunley’s correct legal reasoning is that gun shops usually have signs where it says you can buy guns there such as a neon sign or the name of the gun shop could have the word “guns” in it which is another form of advertising.
“The Government may not restrict speech that persuades adults, who are neither criminals nor suffer from mental illness, from purchasing a legal and constitutionally protected product, merely because it distrusts their personality trait and the decisions that personality trait may lead them to make later down the road.” Judge Troy Nunley.
