The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld a California law requiring a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases, the Washington Examiner reports.

The decision reverses a lower court's verdict that the waiting period was unconstitutional.

"We do not need to decide whether the regulation is sufficiently longstanding to be presumed lawful," wrote Judge Mary Schroeder. "Applying intermediate scrutiny analysis, we hold that the law does not violate the Second Amendment rights of these plaintiffs, because the 10-day wait is a reasonable precaution for the purchase of a second or third weapon, as well as for a first purchase."
