CASE ENTRY

Gallinger v. Becerra

California has long banned individuals from bringing guns on school property—with exceptions for concealed carry permit holders and retired police officers. Recently, legislators removed the exemption for concealed carry permit holders but retained, after “potent” lobbying from law enforcement, the exemption for retired cops. Ninth Circuit: No equal protection violation here. Retired cops could run into an enemy at school and need to defend themselves. Moreover, they have special training in firearms safety.
