A California appeals court reinstated one of the state’s unique gun control laws on Saturday, which required background checks for the purchase of ammunition.
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez had overturned the law last week, which required state background checks for the purchase of ammunition. The laws are the only of their kind in the United States, and often result in law-abiding patriots being denied the opportunity to purchase ammo because of an overloaded and faulty state background check system.
The restriction was removed from place following Benitez’s ruling, but the one-week taste of limited freedom California gun owners enjoyed wasn’t to last. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals granted the state’s emergency motion to stay Benitez’s order, placing the convoluted ammunition laws back into effect.
The NRA had funded the court case to overturn the restrictions, and released a statement on the Circuit Court’s decision to keep the ammunition control law in place. “This means that the same restrictions that have been previously in effect regarding ammunition in California are back for the time being, pending further order from the court.”
When overturning the onerous restriction, Benitez had cited data that indicates the California background check system denies ammunition purchases to law abiding patriots up to 16% of the time. The state lacks the resources to concisely monitor and approve lawful ammunition purchases, but they don’t care if lawful gun owners are being denied the chance to exercise their rights.
Benitez had also overturned an element of the law that restricted the importation of ammunition from other states, citing California’s contravention of interstate commerce laws.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
