    A U.S. judge overturned a gun attack in California on Friday in a move quickly condemned by Gov. Gavin Newsom as gun-related homicides escalated across the United States. In a 94-page ruling, Federal Judge Roger T Benitez called the California arms embargo – in effect in 1989 – unconstitutional and defended Americans’ right to own semi-automatic weapons. “Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense equipment and home defense equipment,” he wrote. Benitez said he would give the state 30 days to appeal the ruling, which Governor Newson said was a “direct threat to public safety” and vowed to challenge. The decision comes as gun violence escalates in the United States. Mass shootings took place in Florida, Indiana, California, Colorado and Georgia, in an outbreak of violence that President Joe Biden called an “epidemic.”
