And California's waiting period applies to new gun purchases even if the owner already possesses another legal weapon.
The debate over gun control regulations and restrictions reignited last week after accused gunman Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Florida Governor Rick Scott said during a joint news conference.
Lead plaintiff Jeff Silvester, the Calguns Foundation and its executive director Brandon Combs, and the Second Amendment Foundation in 2011 challenged the 10-day waiting period between the purchase of a firearm and its actual delivery to the buyer.
The Ninth Circuit, Thomas wrote, applied the wrong standard of review in weighing the constitutionality of the waiting period. Lower federal courts, in the mean time, have adopted a fairly narrow view of the Heller and McDonalddecisions, affirming a raft of gun control measures.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. "But as evidenced by our continued inaction in this area, the Second Amendment is a disfavored right in this Court".
"If a lower court treated another right so cavalierly, I have little doubt that this court would intervene", Thomas wrote. They said the state's claimed need for a "cooling off period" makes no sense if the buyer already has a gun.
That argument prevailed before the the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, which ruled against the 10-day waiting period in the context of "previous purchasers". "Our continued refusal to hear Second Amendment cases only enables this kind of defiance", he wrote.
In a separate case, the court rejected a challenge by the National Rifle Association to California's $5 fee on gun sales, which pays for programs to take guns away from criminals and mental patients. As apparent examples of rights without a constitutional basis, he cited Ninth Circuit rulings on same-sex marriage - later upheld by the Supreme Court - and abortion.
Another finding by the trial court that Thomas quoted is that individuals who meet California's requirements for a concealed-carry license are uniquely "unlikely" to "engage in impulsive acts of violence". The activists say the law is unconstitutional with respect to subsequent purchases, as a person who procures multiple guns in California has already passed the relevant background checks.
Conservative Justice Clarence Thomas issued an opinion blasting his colleagues for failing to take up the challenge of California's waiting period. "It instead dismissed any tailoring concerns by observing that intermediate scrutiny requires 'only that the regulation "promote a substantial government interest that would be achieved less effectively absent the regulation"'".
