The Glock 42 joins other firearms that will not be available for Californians. I’d like to see manufacturers depart the LEO market too. Even though they are better than you and me. Guns that are deemed “unsafe handguns” are only unsafe when you and I have them, according to California law.
I’d really like to see the courts call them on that nonsense. Generally speaking, I think the courts should be very skeptical of law enforcement exemptions. Law professor Nelson Lund wrote a paper on this topic, arguing that the Courts should look at police use when determining whether an arm was protected. I couldn’t agree more. I strongly believe civilians should be able to own anything cops can own. You can’t argue a weapon is for mass murder, or a weapon is unsafe, and then turn around and say the police need them for self-defense and they aren’t unsafe in the hands of cops. That’s transparently about crapping on civil rights rather than about public safety.
