"A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has thrown out California's ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines. The panel's majority ruled Friday that the law banning magazines holding more than 10 bullets violates the constitutional right to bear firearms."

My guess is Molly B couldn't believe her eyes and had to read the ruling a few times to make sure she was reading it right.  :P

This seems like good news for Cook County and other Illinois burgs with AWBs and mag restrictions...

AMEN!

 

https://bearingarms....uit-mag-ban-2a/

 

Judge Kenneth Lee, writing for the majority, declared that “even well intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” arguing that California’s ban on so-called large capacity magazines should be invalidated because it “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment – the right to armed self defense.”

    California’s law imposes a substantial burden on this right to self-defense. The ban makes it criminal for Californians to own magazines that come standard in Glocks, Berettas, and other handguns that are staples of self-defense. Its scope is so sweeping that half of all magazines in America are now unlawful to own in California. Even law-abiding citizens, regardless of their training and track record, must alter or turn over to the state any LCMs that they may have legally owned for years — or face up to a year in jail.

    The state of California has latitude in enacting laws to curb the scourge of gun violence, and has done so by imposing waiting periods and many other limitations. But the Second Amendment limits the state’s ability to second guess a citizen’s choice of arms if it imposes a substantial burden on her right to self-defense. Many Californians may find solace in the security of a handgun equipped with an LCM: those who live in rural areas where the local sheriff may be miles away, law-abiding citizens trapped in high crime areas, communities that distrust or depend less on law enforcement, and many more who rely on their firearms to protect themselves and their families. California’s almost blanket ban on LCMs goes too far in substantially burdening the people’s right to self-defense.

I’m thinking that the present climate on defunding the police and all the disruption and looting may have played a role in this judgement Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

I'm not gettiing excited about this, we've seen this act several times before in the 9th. The AG will appeal for an en banc hearing, the hearing will be granted and a stay put in place. the full court will overturn, and SCOTUS will refuse to hear an appeal. Probably for the best since Roberts has now shown his disdain for the Bill of Rights.

Now to repeal the NFA, some of us would feel safer with machineguns or short bqrrel shotguns.

I agree with chrislinger.  An appeal will be filed and a stay put in place and the mags will be "illegal" again.

We've all seen this before.

What?  You weren't a "Boy Scout" and thought ahead about this and were "well prepared"??  Tsk - tsk.
