U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On February 25th, the Ninth Circuit granted en banc review of an NRA-ILA-backed lawsuit challenging California’s ban on magazines containing more than ten rounds.

This case challenges California Penal Code §32310, which was amended in 2016, to outright ban magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds. The NRA filed suit against California in 2017 and won a favorable decision at the district court level in 2019. California appealed to the Ninth Circuit, and in August of 2020, a three-judge panel ruled that the statute was unconstitutional.

Shortly thereafter, California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a petition for an en banc hearing, a hearing before 11 judges as opposed to the three-judge panel, in order to overturn the decision.

By granting en banc review, the previous decision ruling that California’s magazine ban statute violated the Second Amendment is vacated. This result is not surprising, but the NRA is prepared to continue to fight to defend the Second Amendment in California and throughout the country.

The case is called Duncan v. Becerra.

I have absolutely NO FAITH that the Ninth Circuit Court will uphold the Constitution of the United States in ANY case involving firearms! The Ninth Circuit are the Communist Whores of America!

Becerra and those like him have unlimited taxpayer’s resources and it doesn’t cost him anything to be wrong.
High or standard capacity magazines aren’t the issue, it’s manipulating the courts decision if they don’t like the outcome. No court has the backbone to say enough.

It never ceases to amaze me that the good people of California continue to allow their elected officials to Crap all over them and waste precious money so frivolously!

Solutions: We live in a time, the era of the Progressive New Left where we are all equal but some are more equal than others and words have timeless, indelible meaning until the interest of power requires that we reverse the meaning of words. We no longer have appellate courts we have Councils of Experts a la the Islamic Republic of Iran. The only thing missing is a divine entity to place limits on human avarice. In lieu of that we have the People We Have Been Waiting For who act in lieu of a divine entity. So rights mean… Read more »
