Victory in California! Federal Appeals Court in California's Strikes Down Anti-2A Legislature

For hundreds of years, America has always seen as the land of opportunity. People have come from all over the world to have the change at a life of opportunity and freedom in America.

Countless people have come and experienced success or raised children who became successful. It has truly been a land of opportunity.

One recent example of this comes in the form of a California law being declared unconstitutional. How do those two go together, you might ask? The author of the majority opinion, Judge Kenneth Lee emigrated to this country from South Korea with his family when he was four years old.

Lee is a member of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which presides over the western United States—including California. The law in question was a ban on the possession of so-called large-capacity magazines.

The path which led to Lee’s appointment to the Ninth Circuit began in Seoul, South Korea, followed by immigrating to Los Angeles, California in 1979. Lee grew up in LA, but went to Cornell and Harvard for college and law school, respectively. Eventually, Lee was nominated to the Ninth Circuit by President Trump, and was confirmed on May 15, 2019.

At first glance, it’s surprising that a California-raised judge would vote to uphold Second Amendment as opposed to legislating from the bench. One possible explanation for this relates to events which took place in his neighborhood in 1992.

Lee grew up Koreatown in LA, and his father owned a business there as well. So what happened in 1992? The LA riots did. During the unrest, business owners in Koreatown gained notoriety by defending their places of business by arming themselves and taking to their roofs to ward off rioters.

It’s conceivable that Lee learned first hand the importance of gun ownership and of the rights protected by the Second Amendment. As Fox News reports, he wrote the following in his majority opinion,

“California’s near-categorical ban of LCMs infringes on the fundamental right to self-defense. It criminalizes the possession of half of all magazines in America today. It makes unlawful magazines that are commonly used in handguns by law abiding citizens for self-defense. And it substantially burdens the core right of self-defense guaranteed to the people under the Second Amendment. It cannot stand.”

I really wonder if the 1992 riots and the Koreans played some sort of role in his decision.

Yikes! Lawyer Frank Salpietro said he believes this is a move by corporate bosses: “It has become very clear that this is a top-down directive from the corporation, this is how they should handle the situation."
