U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) issued the following statement after Federal District Judge André Birotte Jr., a Barack Obama appointee, denied a request for a temporary restraining order in a federal civil rights lawsuit in Los Angeles:

Unfortunately, the Court’s utterly absurd and misguided constitutional analysis allowed the City of Los Angeles and other defendants to continue violating the fundamental, individual rights of millions of people in Los Angeles County. The Court’s awful ruling in this matter is far from the end of this lawsuit. We will continue to seek a preliminary injunction in this matter and are prepared to seek relief from the Ninth Circuit and the Supreme Court should doing so be necessary to end these unconstitutional bans, defend liberty, and fight for the rights of our members and the public.

Notably, however, the Court held that, with “respect to Executive Order N-33-20, State Defendants have shown that the order does not require the closure of firearms or ammunition retailers.” Last Friday, attorneys for California Governor Gavin Newsom and and Public Health Officer Sonia Angell argued that, as “the Governor has publicly confirmed, the Executive Order does not mandate the closure of firearms and ammunition retailers. To the extent any local official acting on his or her own authority requires the closure of those retailers, such actions do not concern the Executive Order.” More, they said, people “face no imminent and irreparable harm that may be traced to the Executive Order or the State Defendants.” Thus, according to Governor Newsom and Public Health Officer Angell – and now, a federal judge – the operation of firearm and ammunition retailers are not banned under the State’s Orders.

Individual firearm or ammunition purchasers, retailers, and ranges affected by ‘stay-home’ or shutdown orders are encouraged to report their concerns and potential civil rights violations to FPC’s COVID-19 Issue Hotline at www.FPChotline.org.

This denial just proves that the state of Criminals and Communists does not care for our civil rights and all they want is more control. Almost every politician in Khalifornia including their family is a crook and or a thief and has been for decades.

Wild Bill

@Cir, It also shows that those criminals and communists are in the judiciary.


Hail Hydra!


Their symbols were what led me to awakening in the first place. I was lucky enough to grow up in the 1970’s in the era of Dungeons and Dragons. It was just the hot new thing then, and I thought little of it. Only much later did I come to learn that everything in there was actual beliefs of the ruling bankster elite! So, I learned the language of the demons by accident. How fortuitous for me. I didn’t put it together until Gary Gygax (The ‘author” of D&D and founder of TSR publishing) ‘lost’ a proxy fight with his… Read more »


Not as much as they like doing it to little children that they’ve had kidnapped they don’t. The depths of their depravity defy description.


This kind of anti-Constitutional action would only occur in The Peoples Republik of Kalifornia! American Patriots ought to run Birotte’s AZZ out of town! Next step up!!!

Deplorable Bill

“The RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” The day is coming when tyrants and treasonous people will get what the law says they deserve in court. The legal, legitimate penalty for treason and tyranny is death. I would add tarring and feathering publically done, to be used as prison clothing until sentence is carried out. But, if the court remains silent to treason and tyranny, I will not be surprised if some fed up American citizen “votes” them out of office along with the tyrants and the treasonous oath of office disavowing people… Read more »

@ U.S.A.: I am still in favor of execution for tyrants and treasonous people no matter what their rank or office or tenure. This especially so if they have taken their oath of office to defend the nation, the people and the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Those who have not taken that oath but still commit treason and tyranny, like the fake news for instance should also receive the penalty. Those who are obviously guilty because of video and audio recordings etc. should be put to death post haste. If there is some question as to their… Read more »
