The gun blogosphere can't stop talking about the latest lawsuit against California's Attorney General Kamala Harris.  What is all the fuss about?  A law that has been on the books since 1923 about gun stores advertising the sale of handguns.  Yes, you read that correctly, and you are right in your assumption that this is hardly news.

Tracy Rifle & Pistol is a gun store about an hour outside of San Francisco that was cited by the DOJ for violating PC 26820 because they had three handgun ads visible through the window which was in violation of the law which states:

26820.  No handgun or imitation handgun, or placard advertising the
sale or other transfer thereof, shall be displayed in any part of the
premises where it can readily be seen from the outside.

I'm still scratching my head wondering why this is even a law and why it only applies to handguns not rifles, shotguns, or baseball bats.  That is the same case that is being made for the gun store, saying it is a violation of their First Amendment rights.  If you want to see the pictures that they were cited for check out this non-embeddable local news video.

I pretty much see this as a slam dunk for the 2A community, and I'm quite certain the courts will side in our favor.  Learn more at the CalGuns Foundation.
