A federal judge has rejected a request by the California attorney general to further delay his order overturning the 10-day waiting period for gun owners who want to buy more firearms.
U.S. District Judge Anthony Ishii of Fresno ruled last week that he already gave six months from his August decision before the state must implement his order. The judge found no evidence that the cooling-off period to buy more firearms prevents violence by people who already own guns.
Attorney General Kamala Harris had asked for a delay until the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals can issue its decision.
