It has to be appealed to the Ninth Circuit first, and even then, I’d be surprised if the SC agrees to hear this case. It’s too “definitive” for their taste.
The Supreme court has recently become into a much more cohesive unit that is ruling according to the constitution recently.
Court packing options by the dims have them sending a message to congress.
It's a good thing. Rulings by politics have been the norm in the past which is not what the SCOTUS was designed for.

Oh yes, this was just a US District Court judge. So it has to go to the looney 9th Circuit first. Even with Trump's appointed judges, I don't trust it. They could very well overturn the injunction and then the SCOTUS refuses to hear it and we're still right back where we started.

Yeah, but at least we're in Oklahoma, not the Land of Fruits and Nuts and Flakes.

I’d like to see the actual statistics of the violent crimes in CA. The weapon used, how many, brief background of the user and the incident.

Pistol
Rifle- AR, AK, other
Shotgun
Knife
Club
Personal Assault without weapon

Misdemeanor
Felon
Gang member

Robbery
Murder
Drive by
Self Defense

You get the idea.
The judge did have some of the statistics in his written opinion for the past 30 years the ban has been in place - he did his homework and did not rule based on hear-say media gun phobia information that the California DA had used to base their appeal, in fact he told them they had no evidence the AR15 style rifles posed a threat cited a a person in California had a greater threat from fists & knives to be killed. He even went on to say people needed AR styled rifles to protect themselves & families.
