This ban was completely unjustified and a great concern for gun owners.
These bans are not about public safety. They are merely political theater and an excuse for City Councils to ‘virtue signal’ for publicity and personal aggrandizement.

Buckeye Firearms Foundation Wins Legal Battle Against Cincinnati over Bump Stock Ban
[I’m close to giving up with the legislative arena in Washington State. We are getting some traction in the courts and I suspect that with the anti-gun hysteria sweeping the nation our best chance to stop it is in the courts. The law is on our side and many judges have a little better connection to reality through the written law than do the legislators and the executive branch.—Joe]
Always better to stop it before it happens, if you can.
I hear what you are saying, though … some serious nonsense down here in New Mexico these days also.
Our new Cheesehead Governor and AG are making noises about instituting red flag laws. Sigh.
Welcome to the party. The courts are where it has been at in California for years. The problem is judges who put politics above the law.
And another thing, we need to lose the term’virtue signalling’. There is nothing virtuous about it and the only signal they are sending is that they are really useful idiots. We should call it idiot signalling.
How about “virtue pretending”?
