There is a new -- that is being cost by lawmakers in the state of California.
That would bat in the future sale of most types of semiautomatic rifles.
That except those detachable magazines the kind of have been used in many all of the mass shootings we've seen.
Over the past few he does governor Jerry Brown -- has indicated that he will sign that the NRA.
-- doesn't like that idea not surprisingly the NRA said and this is a quote from the NRA.
Our right to keep and bear arms has never -- as seriously threatening California.
As it is today -- -- years of incrementally adopting gun control measures.
This year the legislature decided to propose new rules adopting everything on the gun ban that lobbies.
Wish list -- -- the NRA says it's going to sue the state if by governor Jerry Brown does indeed.
Sign that -- -- what does that all mean legally I'm joined here in the studio by -- Louis -- did I get that right you got it back trial attorney and director of advocacy.
At the pace law school good to see -- and from our Atlanta bureau.
Asked the panic she was a criminal defense attorney nice to see US debt so well when we started illegally -- this first the -- Op can this lol being forced and if they asked if it is.
What what Johns -- the NRA have of winning illegal back.
-- -- -- let me just start by saying every single time anybody tries to pass a bill.
Limiting this Second Amendment according getting an -- at the NRA always says it's the worst thing -- could ever happen.
So I you know it's almost like the way you cried wolf you say enough times and it doesn't mean anything anymore and it to people they California.
Population has basically said hit their legislators we want some more type of gun control and so this is what their legislators are responding -- And so of course scenery is going to say I don't think anybody expects -- not to say it so.
That it will go through the courts and the judges will make rulings and maybe it'll be something that the Supreme Court actually -- like it's just the beginning at -- and and I don't know why anybody would be surprise that the primary would actually issue -- -- issue.
I'm not really surprised the NRA's from the civil what's what is really surprising in this particular instance.
Is that at least half of the rifles that are currently in California are going to be outlawed by this new band and what it's done is that anywhere iPhone that has the removal magazine.
Or one that she has the fix magazine ten.
Ten rounds or more is gone is going to be -- and the NRA's -- claim that they're circumventing the Second Amendment basically if you keep you keep including more more weapons in the assault then.
Category you're gonna be putting us right in a position where it's -- -- has no effect.
Yes there is not at that point that eight day it is just -- chipping away at the Second Amendment and the -- the NRA obviously feels that it's got to stop somewhere and this is -- perhaps the place to draw the line.
I'll be NRA says at at that everything still you know I guess they obviously they DC it as a slippery slope.
-- they -- has to be some regulation no.
Lot is it's totally absolutely so there are exceptions the First Amendment has exceptions kid there's no -- -- level.
Objection to having some restriction.
On the Second Amendment.
Of those this is -- restricting the type of weapon that is included.
Does this Louis Ol and up.
Well I mean -- does it end up legally speaking this is it's a State's rights issue.
So it's not gonna go to the Supreme Court ultimately this kind of depends on how they -- the lesson it's depends are they bring in the second eminent they -- in a Second Amendment and get settled of court jurisdiction they're gonna bring in of the federal court and I think that would probably be.
The best place for them to bring it up.
History shows us in this case that the statistics behind this change in the law are really don't support the change in the -- and that's really why.
The NRA is using this is a platform.
-- kind of chip away -- what's been happening nationwide which is more.
And more limitations on weapons -- -- away where do you see the whole I'd gun control debate going from a legal point of view.
I I agree and -- I think this is going to end up if they go to federal court I think -- will let me then this might end up in the Supreme Court.
It's not that that's probably where it will and got some seven judge will block a lot of manual or -- a lot of go forward and be enforced an annual just can't keep getting appealed.
Through the federal courts until it hits think we're assuming the Supreme Court wants to accept jurisdiction ever.
Yet that's an interesting point -- what would you view of that -- supreme -- likely to accept this kind of case I think so I.
I think that this case I think this is this is a good test case and at dinner -- pushes the issue and they may have the believe that they have the goods to push the issue on this case.
They may be it may be the -- case for them all right now Louis pursue -- trial attorney and director about the seeing the pace law school.
And asked to punish criminal defense attorney joining us from Atlanta thank you both very much in -- debate and one we'll come back to -- and and again until thanks Louis.
