Federal Judge Blocks California's High-Capacity Magazine Ban
I don't have to tell you how California is trying to ban all things boomstick. A while back, the Golden State passed a law to keep citizens from owning a "high-capacity" firearm magazine. They seem to think they can eliminate shootings by making you trade your mags for dinky 10-rounders. Apparently, those gun-grabbers have never heard of reloading.
Anyways, the magazine law was challenged in a federal court. It was promptly shot down:
U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez said the rule violates the Second Amendment and infringes upon citizens’ rights to defend themselves.
“California’s law prohibiting acquisition and possession of magazines able to hold any more than 10 rounds places a severe restriction on the core right of self-defense of the home such that it amounts to a destruction of the right and is unconstitutional under any level of scrutiny,” he wrote in an 86-page decision.
We had here yet another attempt by the left to circumvent that pesky Constitution. Alas, the court got in their way. Peeps in the Golden State will now be free to exercise their God-given right to a PMAG. A revelation sure to trigger the bejeezus out of California lefties.
Now, we need only for the courts to take a look into California's other "common sense" gun regulations. Methinks they're gonna quickly find some problems with Cali's grudge against scary
black African American rifles of color. Also, pretty much every other regulation which hinders or prohibits law-abiding folk from packing heat.
It's not too often we get to see the judiciary working properly. Unconstitutional laws like this one have no business existing. If the peeps out in Cal-i-forn-i-aye want to put the kibosh on private gun ownership, they're gonna first need to nix Amendment Dos. Good luck with that.
Since we're talking gats:
