The ruling, granted by U.S. District Judge William Hayes, is a notable win for gun rights advocates and has sparked discussions about Second Amendment protections and historical precedents for firearm regulations.

The case, known as Nguyen v. Bonta, was filed in December 2020 and challenged California’s One-Gun-A-Month (OGM) purchase law. Judge Hayes’ ruling, based on the NYSRPA v. Bruen Supreme Court case, emphasized the constitutional protection of conduct covered by the plain text of the Second Amendment. The lack of historical precedent for laws similar to the OGM law was a pivotal factor in the ruling, leading to the granting of a motion for summary judgment in favor of the plaintiffs.
