Fried Ice the Handgun Edition

I guess we’ll see if all those NRA “from my cold, dead fingers” types actually meant it.

SAN FRANCISCO  — The California Supreme Court on Thursday threw out a lawsuit that sought to invalidate a state law requiring new models of semi-automatic handguns to stamp identifying information on bullet casings.

The court ruled unanimously that gun rights groups could not overturn the law on the grounds that complying with it was impossible. The groups argued that technology did not exist to meet the stamping requirements, and a law couldn’t mandate something that was not possible.

Writing for six of the justices, Associate Justice Goodwin Liu said impossibility can sometimes lead courts to excuse a failure to comply with a law, but it can’t be the basis for invalidating it. The ruling overturned a lower court ruling that allowed the suit to move forward.

Here’s a picture of the California Supreme Court from Wikipedia:

  1. “Mostly female….. How many Catholic and jews and the like?’

    Let’s check their names. From California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye is the first Asian-Filipina Chief Justice. Other judges: Ming Chen, Carol Corrigan, Goodwin Liu, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Leondra Kruger and now-retired Kathryn Werdega.

    Asians, Latinos and Filipinos. I thought from the picture that there was one white male but I guess not.
