• Second Amendment Foundation, Others, Sue to Overturn CA’s ‘High-Capacity’ Magazine Ban



    By AWR Hawkins

    On Friday, seven individuals, the Second Amendment Foundation, and other pro-Second Amendment groups filed suit against California’s “high-capacity” magazine ban.

    The other plaintiffs include The Calguns Foundation, the Firearms Policy Coalition, and the Firearms Policy Foundation.

    According to CBS SF Bay Area, the suit is filed against Attorney General Xavier Becerra. Attorney George Lee is representing the plaintiffs and contends that the “high-capacity” magazine ban “violates… [the plaintiffs] Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

    The Firearms Policy Coalition announced the lawsuit and explained the circuitous route which Democrats traveled to secure the magazine ban:

    Last year, California Governor Jerry signed into law Senate Bill 1446 (SB 1446), which changed state statutes to completely ban law-abiding people from possessing all “large-capacity” firearm magazines as of July 1, 2017. Following that, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom’s Proposition 63 (Prop 63) “Safety For All Act” gun control initiative—which also contained language banning “large-capacity” magazines—was passed by voters in the November general election.

      I wish they'd file the same grievance suit in MA

      I wonder what Gura thinks. Lawsuit looks like a loser.

      If the suit is narrowly tailored to an illegal taking contest then they have a shot but the article makes it sound like a rather broad suit against mag limits. Tough to tell but we all know that 2A cases have little chance in the Ninth Circus.

      Note the article did not even mention in what venue the suit was filed. For that one has to read the press release from SAF.
      BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation, joined by several other groups and individuals, today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in California, challenging that state’s law prohibiting the possession, use or acquisition of so-called “large capacity magazines,” calling the ban “hopelessly vague and ambiguous.”

      Joining SAF are the Calguns Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, Firearms Policy Foundation and six individuals including one retired California peace officer. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.

      Eastern district. I think the whole east side of the state is a red zone.

      Better on the offence than the defense.
      If it makes it to the supreme , who knows what that may look like by then.
      This could turn into a grabbers nightmare in the end.

      Unless the offense is poorly run and results in bad precedent.
