It will. It has only been two weeks.
Considering that intermediate scrutiny is the most likely level of scrutiny that will be applied to second amendment rights, it is not clear to me that the entirety of California's gun control regime would survive judicial scrutiny.
So why hasn't it been successfully challenged in California? Does the Constitution apply differently there? Seems to me the arguments that failed to change the law on constitutional grounds in California will fail for the same reason in the rest of the country.
