Federal Eastern District of California Senior Judge Anthony W. Ishii issued a ruling on Aug. 25, finding that the State of California cannot mandate a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases after a buyer has already passed the required background checks. The state has 180 days to change the law before the ruling goes into effect. Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as two gun rights groups, The Calguns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation brought the lawsuit challenging the waiting period in 2011.
