The government of Hawaii is petitioning to have the case reheard en banc, but until it is, there is a brief amount of time in which this lawsuit can be filed or for a temporary restraining order / preliminary injunction to be issued preventing the enforcement of the law against open carry in CA. It is Mr. Baird’s intention to file this lawsuit.
On Saturday, leader of the State of Jefferson movement, Mark Baird, stated in a speech at the Restore Our Rights event that he is filing a lawsuit against California to enjoin the laws which completely ban the open carrying of firearms.
The Young v. Hawaii decision at the 9th Circuit, which upholds the right to openly carry a firearm in public for personal defense, is binding on all federal judges within the 9th Circuit. The government of Hawaii is petitioning to have the case reheard en banc, but until it is, there is a brief amount of time in which this lawsuit can be filed or for a temporary restraining order / preliminary injunction to be issued preventing the enforcement of the law against open carry in CA. It is Mr. Baird’s intention to file this lawsuit.
Even if the judge rules against the TRO/PI, it can be appealed, and TRO/PI lawsuits are expedited and would jump ahead of other lawsuits currently challenging the bans on open carry.
Baird gave an incredible, historically driven speech about the source of our rights, the subsequent denial of our right to keep and bear arms specifically, and whose responsibility it is to ultimately preserve our rights.
“What is the price of liberty, because that is the price we didn’t pay,” he declared. “With eternal vigilance is the responsibility of action when we see something go wrong. What good is it to see something and not do anything about it? We have failed in our responsibility, and we’re going to fix that tonight.”

“If we don’t stand up and act now, we will lose the opportunity and lose the right to act in the future.”
Attorneys are expensive and the color of justice is green. Baird stated he has written a sizable check already, but it will likely cost about $25,000. It is an “inexpensive” case as far as federal lawsuits go, but he can use all the help he can get. To help fund this case and block CA from enforcing the unconstitutional ban on open carry, go to:
