After Tentative Rulings, Judge in Microstamping Suit Takes More Time to Weigh Issues

NEWTOWN, Conn --( A Fresno, California Superior Court judge this week heard arguments on the request of NSSF and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) for a preliminary injunction to stop temporarily the enforcement of that state’s law requiring new semiautomatic handguns to include microstamping capability.

The judge also heard arguments on the state’s motion to dismiss the underlying lawsuit. The court took both matters under advisement after hearing oral arguments from the parties.

The judge is now weighing a NSSF and SAAMI request to submit a supplemental brief on the law’s legislative history, which, if granted, would likely include additional oral arguments.

He also invited the state to submit an opinion from its own expert to rebut the written statements of NSSF and SAAMI’s expert previously filed in the case. We will continue to keep you informed about this case as the process continues.

      I know it’s not unusual for judges to “take matters under advisement” when suits are technically oriented on matters outside the court’s realm of experience. But somehow I always wonder if some judges aren’t using that time to let left wing political groups give them their answers. I know that’s unfair to the judges who are honorable, but this is, after all, California and damn few judges are appointed by Republicans.
