HUGE WIN! 9th Circuit ENDS California’s Ban on High-Capacity Magazines

A massive win for gun owners and Americans in liberal California as the 9th Circuit Court has ended the states ban on high capacity magazines.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms.

“Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the panel’s majority. California’s ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense.”

He noted that California passed the law “in the wake of heart-wrenching and highly publicized mass shootings,” but said that isn’t enough to justify a ban whose scope “is so sweeping that half of all magazines in America are now unlawful to own in California.”

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office said it is reviewing the decision.

“Until further proceedings in the courts, the stay on the injunction issued by the district court remains in place,” his office said in a statement. “The Attorney General remains committed to using every tool possible to defend California’s gun safety laws and keep our communities safe.”

Becerra did not immediately say if he would ask a larger 11-judge appellate panel to reconsider the ruling by the three judges, or if he would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

He also did not immediately say if the state would seek a delay of the ruling to prevent an immediate buying spree if the lower court lifts its stay.

We aren’t buying the bullshit lies regarding your support of business above all and the class warfare. You are found wanting in the realm of what we need in the future. Feel free… Read more »

The better question, arswill, is when will you communists understand the difference between law-abiding citizens, and the terrorists that attack them? Oh wait – the antifa/blm armies are YOUR MERCENARIES! You will not disarm Americans, so your little thugs can more easily terrorize innocent people. You are all going down together…very soon.
