9th Circuit agrees to rehear long running Alameda County gun rights case

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

A federal appeals court on Monday once again decided to weigh in on an epic 12 year old gun rights showdown over an Alameda County ordinance banning guns and ammunition on public property. In a brief order, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to rehear a legal challenge to the 1999 law, which restricts gun shows on county property, including Alameda County's fairgrounds. The order, which calls for an 11 judge 9th Circuit panel to hear the case, wipes out a ruling from May by three 9th Circuit judges who unanimously agreed to uphold the legality of the ordinance.
