ANJRPC Joins Federal Challenge to Standard Magazine Bans

New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- In anticipation of proposed New Jersey legislation limiting magazine capacity, Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs has joined a federal legal challenge to “large capacity” magazine bans currently pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Duncan v. Becerra made headlines back in July when a U.S. District Court judge temporarily blocked a California law banning and confiscating firearms magazines holding over 10 rounds of ammunition.

Currently on appeal to the infamous Ninth Circuit, the case is already deep in the federal court pipeline and poised to head toward the U.S. Supreme Court.

By joining a federal magazine ban case already in progress, Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs is ahead of the curve and helping to defeat hardware bans in advance of new legislation in the Garden State.

    1. A quick scan of the court’s ORDER GRANTING PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION presents these two gems:

      1. Statutes must be sufficiently well-defined so that reasonably intelligent citizens can know what conduct is against the law.
      2. Constitutional rights would become meaningless if states could obliterate them by enacting incrementally more burdensome restrictions while arguing that a reviewing court must evaluate each restriction by itself when determining constitutionality.

      The death by a thousand cuts of protected rights is the enemy’s plan. This judge should get an award, he is spot on.

    2. These gun and magazine bans violate the interstate commerce clause. You know the part of silly old document that is supposed to keep states from blocking the sale or taxing legal products that come form other states.

    3. Wow ! That Friend of the Court filing in California could be used as a template in every State of the Union where the Traitorous Gun Grabbers (TGG) are active. Just cut and paste, and add in anything new or pertinent to any particular State, and the lawyers will be ready to go. I can see political cartoons printed all over the land where a lawyer is shown holding high the “Friend of California Sheriffs Brief” while simultaneously stepping on the neck of a prone and distressed body labeled a TGG. And in the background can be drawn in 4 strong bodies with a 6″ x 6″ post up on their shoulders, and a bucket of tar off to the side, eyeing with disdain the person on the floor.
