In an order Monday, a three-judge panel on the federal appeals court issued a stay of US District Judge Roger Benitez’s order earlier this month that overturned California’s three-decade old assault weapons ban.
The state’s current assault weapons laws will remain in effect while further proceedings continue, California Attorney General Rob Bonta said in a statement on Twitter.
This leaves our assault weapons laws in effect while appellate proceedings continue,” Bonta said in a tweet. “We won’t stop defending these life-saving laws.”
In his order on June 4, Benitez, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, called firearms that have been labeled assault weapons “fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles.”
“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” Benitez said in the ruling.
The ruling sparked criticism from numerous California officials, including Gov. Gavin Newsom who said the AR-15 is a “weapon of war.”
When Benitez overturned the state’s ban on assault weapons, he gave the state 30 days to challenge the ruling. Bonta filed an appeal less than a week later, calling it “fundamentally flawed.”
The 9th Circuit court said both parties will file a status update within 14 days.
Judge Benitez previously ruled against other state firearm restrictions. Last year, he ruled California’s ban on high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. He also struck down the state’s restriction on remote purchases of gun ammunition.
A California man was rescued Tuesday after getting stuck inside farm equipment at a vineyard for two days, according to authorities.
The unidentified man was found after the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office in Santa Rosa received a complaint earlier in the morning of a suspicious vehicle parked on private property in the city, about 60 miles north of San Francisco.
A deputy responded and located the vehicle, which was parked in a location that “made no sense,” the sheriff’s office said. A hat was also found resting on a nearby piece of farm equipment.
Local firefighters responded to the scene and extricated the man from the vineyard fan shaft. When questioned as to why he was there in the first place, the man claimed he liked to take photos of the engines of old farm equipment, authorities said.
However, the sheriff’s office didn’t appear to buy his explanation.
“After a thorough investigation which revealed the farm equipment wasn’t antique and the man had far more methamphetamine than camera equipment, the motivation to climb into the fan shaft remains a total mystery,” the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies chose not to arrest the man at the scene, noting he required medical treatment after his “unintended multi-day stay in the fan shaft,” according to the statement.
The sheriff’s office will be recommending charges of trespassing and drug possession, as well as violations of an outstanding probation case and a pending case – for which the suspect was currently out of custody on pre-trial release.
