The California law requiring a 10-day waiting period was challenged by a firearm owner and the gun-rights group Second Amendment Foundation, who argued it was unfair for people who already owned firearms to have to wait the same amount of time as first-time purchasers who were undergoing background checks during that time.
California is among nine states and Washington, D.C., that have waiting periods for gun purchases, and California's is the second-longest in the country, Thomas said in hisdissent.
The plaintiffs in the case - three California gun owners joined by the pro-gun rights Calguns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation - originally prevailed in
But the 9th Circuit upheld the regulation. It said the 10-day waiting period is a reasonable safety precaution for all purchasers of firearms and need not be suspended once a purchaser has been approved.
One of the court's most conservative justices, Clarence Thomas, dissented from the decision to reject the waiting-period case and accusedhis colleagues of showing contempt toward constitutional protections for gun rights. And California's waiting period applies to new gun purchases even if the owner already possesses another legal weapon.
The justices did not comment in leaving in place two rulings by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Quoting the 2008 gun-rights case District of Columbia v. Heller, Thomas also quipped that the high court should not "be in the business of choosing which constitutional rights are 'really worth insisting upon'".

This report was updated at 10:43 a.m. Lower federal courts, in the mean time, have adopted a fairly narrow view of the Heller and McDonald decisions, affirming a raft of gun control measures. Not because Thomas talked about watching porn with a female colleague or otherwise behaved crudely in the workplace, but "because of the lies he told, repeatedly and under oath, saying he had never talked to Hill about porn or to other women who worked with him about risque subject matter", writes Abramson.
"The right to keep and bear arms is apparently this court's constitutional orphan", Thomas wrote.
