California law banning guns in most public places again halted by appeals court

A California law banning people from carrying guns in certain public places has yet again been put on hold, this time by a federal appeals court.

In mid-December, a U.S. District judge temporarily blocked the California law, which was slated to take effect on Jan. 1.

Then, on Dec. 30, a federal appeals court put a temporary hold on the district judge’s ruling, which paved the way for the law to go into effect on New Year’s Day as the legal fight continued.

However, on Saturday, the U.S. Court of Appeals from the 9th Circuit on Saturday dissolved that stay, reinstating the district judge’s ruling blocking the law.
