Federal Judge Block Laws Banning Gun Shows At County Fairs

A federal judge has blocked California’s ban on gun shows at county fairs, ruling that the state is violating the rights of sellers and would-be buyers by prohibiting transactions for firearms that can be bought at any gun shop. Monday’s decision by U.S. District Judge Mark Holcomb halts enforcement of two state laws, both written by Democratic state Sen. Dave Min who called Holcomb’s injunction “shocking,” and predicted it would be overturned on appeal.
