California: Case challenging San Mateo County ban on firearms in park loses on appeal

Posted: 07.25.13 04:00 PM

The Calguns Foundation (CGF) and several individual plaintiffs, including CGF's Chairman, filed a lawsuit in 2011 challenging a San Mateo County ordinance that bans the possession of firearms in county parks and recreation areas, even for those licensed to carry handguns in public. California law preempts -- meaning it precludes local regulation of -- certain, but not all, fields of firearm regulation. The plaintiffs claimed that the ordinance was preempted by state law, specifically that the ordinance violated Government Code section 53071 (which prohibits localities from enacting regulations relating to "the registration or licensing of commercially manufactured firearms").
