SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today issued the following statement regarding the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Junior Sports Magazines, Inc. v. Bonta blocking California’s law banning the marketing of guns to children:
“The court is fighting to protect marketing weapons of war to children – a ‘junior’ AR-15. They have endorsed this:
“It is pure insanity.”
Governor Newsom is working with Attorney General Bonta to explore options to swiftly challenge this ruling.
