On appeal, a Defendant in California sought to overturn his conviction for gross negligence in discharging a firearm, possession of a firearm by a juvenile. The defendant in this case was previously made a ward of the juvenile court. As such, he was prohibited from possessing a firearm until the age of 30.

The United States Supreme Court’s recently held that a city’s ban on handguns violates the Constitution’s right to bear arms. The defendant claimed that the law banning him from possessing a firearm violated his rights, and was contrary to the ruling of the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeal in California ruled that the law did not violate his rights, and that his conviction was proper. The court felt that as long as there was valid justification for the ban, a conviction would not violate the defendant’s rights.
