U.S. District Court Judge Renee Marie Bumb issued a temporary restraining order against the law that prohibit guns from being carried in “sensitive locations.”
These locations included public libraries, museums, entertainment venues, restaurants where alcohol is served, public parts, beaches, and public transportation.
